Freedom and Liberty is Not Anything One Wants:
Again John Locke Defines this correctly:

Locke #21. "The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the "LAW OF NATURE" for his rule. (APP Note: See this exact wording in the Rights of the Colonists - http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/Rights_of_the_Colonists/r... )
The liberty of man "in society" is to be under no other legislative power but that established by consent in the commonwealth, nor under the dominion of any will, or restraint of any law, but what that legislative shall enact "ACCORDING" to the "TRUST" (The ORIGINAL COMPACT THAT CREATED THE SOCIETY AND DELEGATED THE LIMITED POWERS) put in it.
FREEDOM, THEN, IS "NOT" what Sir Robert Filmer tells us: "A liberty for every one to do what he "LISTS" (WANTS), to live as he pleases, and not to be tied by any laws";
but FREEDOM of men under government (IN SOCIETY) is to have a "STANDING RULE TO LIVE BY", "COMMON" TO EVERY ONE OF THAT SOCIETY, and made by the legislative power erected in it.
(APP: Another corruption in the United States is the granting of EXCLUSIVE PRIVILEGES, which are not even suppose to exist in a free country; More on this subject HERE: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/americanpatriotpartynewsl... )
A "LIBERTY" to follow my own will in all things where that rule prescribes not, not to be subject to the inconstant, uncertain, unknown, arbitrary will of another man, as FREEDOM OF NATURE is to be under no other restraint but the "LAW OF NATURE"."
Locke #57: "...So that however it may be mistaken, the end (PURPOSE) of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom.
For in all the states of created beings, capable of laws, WHERE THERE IS NO LAW THERE IS NO FREEDOM.
FOR LIBERTY is to be free from restraint and violence from others, WHICH CANNOT BE WHERE THERE IS NO LAW;
and is NOT, as we are told, "a liberty for every man to do what he "LISTS" (WANTS)."
FOR WHO COULD BE FREE, when every other man's "HUMOUR" MIGHT DOMINEER OVER HIM?
BUT A "LIBERTY" to dispose and order freely as he lists his person, actions, possessions, and his whole property WITHIN THE ALLOWANCE OF THOSE LAWS UNDER WHICH HE IS, and therein NOT BE SUBJECT to the ARBITRARY WILL of another, but FREELY follow his own."
