What freedoms have been taken?

Can someone tell me what freedoms the tea party Republicans perceive they have lost?

They are allowed to gather to yell and shout and call the President of the United States nasty names. They are free to travel hither and yon without let or hindrance. The can arm themselves to the teeth with sub machine guns. They can own property. They can watch Monday night football free of charge and they are even free to drink as much beer as they like and consume junk food. In other words, they are free to do just about any darn thing they want. So when they insist on “Make America Free Again” what is it they’re talking about?
