Is it just me or does anyone else flinch when the word "freedom" is mentioned these days?

Before you get any funny ideas I'm in full support of democratic systems of government and capitalism (well, sort of) and I believe the idea of freedom is noble, but I think in the United States they've said "freedom" so many times it's sadly become an overused cliche to us in the rest of the world. Say the word too many times, and it loses it's meaning, know what I mean?

Anyway enough yakking, where the hell are my freedom fries? :D
