Congress and the courts decide our freedoms today, saving the most for themselves. They exempt themselves from the burdens they put on our shoulders.

H.L. Mencken is one of my favorites.

I am not sure there is enough here to determine what Mencken meant by "equal freedom". I kind of like the rest of the quote. I don't know that I can take freedom; I am free therefore, I manifest freedom, even amongst the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.
