    The land of the free

    USA is supposed to be the land of the free; they even say so in their national anthem, which they proudly sing in every occasion they have: sports matches, in school, when the martians maim a president in a B-series movie.
    Problem is, it is not. Cameron Barret talked yesterday about the questions he'd had to answer when opening a bank account, things like how much money he intends to have. Every person going into the USA has to fill a "visa waiver form" answering questions like if you are a genocidal maniac, or you belong to the communist party of the soviet union, or things like that. In many other occassions, you have to fill forms or answer questions or stuff.
    Why? The answer is very simple. The american system is composed of checks and balances: you can't be thrown in jail unless they have a case on you (that's called the Habeas Corpus right). Your phone can't be tapped either, they can't subpoena your bank accounts.
    But... if you have lied, even once, in any one of these forms, they will have a case, and they can do all that. If you have answered that you expect to have 2 transfer a month, and you have 3, they'll find out, and you will be devoid of all your rights, because, by filling one of those forms, and signing it, you have accepted to do so. That way, if they (the men in gray) have even a far-fetched hunch that you might be involved in some illegal activities, they can throw all the weight of the law on you. Even if finally they only thing they find is traffic violations.
    So, good luck in the land of the free. Even if you have filled a form accepting to be not so free.
