Freedom is one of the values that this country is built on and many freedoms are outlined in our constitution.

You’re the only person that can define what freedom means to you, but if you don’t think you’re living it, then some changes will be necessary.

Their motto: Sell your crap. Pay off your debt. Do what you love.
