Eleutheria, liberty denotes quite a bit more than "inner" liberty. 
Freedom ( legitimate or licentious). Liberty, noun, The combination of the noun with the verb stresses the completeness of the act. Free from bondage. The phraseology is that of manumission from slavery, which among the Greeks was effected by a legal fiction, according to which the manumitted slave was purchased by a god; as the slave could not provide the money, the master paid it into the temple treasury in the presence of the slave, a document being drawn up containing the words "for freedom." physical liberty. This word taken from the word, Eleutheros liberty, unrestrained ( to go at pleasure) as a citizen not a slave, whether freeborn or manumitted, exempt from obligation or liability. Hence Apeleutheros liberty, being owned by god, access to the presence of God. Spiritual liberty. These words echo the same sentiment from the Hebrew, ancient Chophshiy liberty, freedom from bondage and tax, at your pleasure, without care.

"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of bondage." Gal. 5:1
When a nation forgets it's God, tyrants soon forge it's chains.
America has corporately turned it's back on God...until and unless there is a massive return to His statutes, a realization that God brought this nation together and that it will only remain free if He is once again our Supreme Ruler...then let's pray for strength, the ability to fight back and good aim.
