"land of the free"

In what way is this the land of the free?
You can't without getting permission from government.
You can't fix your neighbors house without permission from the government.
What you manage to earn gets eaten in half by the government.
What you manage to save gets diluted over time by the government.
You cant travel down the road to the grocery store without permission from the government.
What you buy at the store must be government approved.
What you pay is inflated many times over because of taxation at each level of the supply chain by the government.

Government is a distinct militant entity that occupies society in order to control and extract its wealth.

Empower government to manage certain infrastructure and divest government of the power to touch our private affairs, then we will have individual liberty.
