[This is the transcript of my regular KVMR commentary broadcast on 1 October 2015, not 30 September as previously noted.]
For over two centuries America has had the reputation as being exceptional in the freedoms granted its citizens and guaranteed by its constitution. However things have changed over the last 50 years or so, and few Americans are aware of it. Our personal and economic freedoms have taken a dive which has gone unreported by the left-leaning lamestream media, and therefore unknown to those who limit their news to such outlets. You are fortunate that KVMR is not among them.
Recently some thought provoking studies have been published which put the United States into perspective with other developed countries, and the resulting picture is not pretty. But the findings do go a long way to explain the economic and social degradation we experience in the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”
