  1. North Korea’s official name is The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

    Point being, nations can call themselves whatever they want. That doesn’t make it true.

  2. It’s in a song. And from when most others were living under monarchies (though the US population was about 15% slaves at the time and only land owning white men could vote, so whatever.)

  3. I am more concerned with the false notion that we are a democracy when we have zero democratic input in our places of employment. That is a sick joke.

  4. Because our government puts profits over people. Over 60% of Americans support universal healthcare and are desperate for it but in all honestly, your everyday American doesn’t have the power to stand up against big corporations and lobbyists. We fight every day for what other countries get but its excruciatingly hard when those in power are against the average person.

  5. We can’t be called the land of the free anymore. Big Tech and the media have shut down our freedoms and control the message. I will be very surprised if anyone will actually even see this post.

  6. You can say you’re as free as you want, you actually have that right. It doesn’t make it true, you’re actually the country with the highest % of incarcerated citizens, but you can say it

  7. We’re free in the sense that you can talk shit about the government without dangerous reprisal, own all sorts of firearms and vote against your local representatives that you dislike (results may vary). But if you don’t have insurance and are critically injured or ill and get medical help, you more or less owe your life to a corporation. If you have insurance through a job or the state and encounter a similar problem, you’ll pay for it out of pocket, just not nearly as much.

  8. i mean freedom is still a very important aspect of american culture. i don’t when the term “land of the free” started.

    I also think you misunderstood that free stood for FREEdom and not FREE 0$ but hey

  9. I’m not American so correct me if I’m wrong, but ‘land of the free’ suggests that individuals are free to do what they want in life. I wouldn’t say that you are not ‘free’ just because you have to pay for healthcare. This post just doesn’t really make any sense to me.
