The best decade was the decade when I collected baseball cards---the 50s.

From a design, and pop culture standpoint, the 1950's. Decades overlap, so throw in the early 60's for the Atomic homes, and designs. The 40's had some great cars, and clothing. Now I know why people collect things from those eras. Decades since just don't excite me, except for some of the technology, social, and medical advances. (and of course a few good films, and music).

Definitely the 1920's....flappers, speakeasy's, jazz, wild parties, loose morals, modernism, prosperity and we'd just fought the "war to end all wars".

Sure America is free......

Except for the fact that we have stricter, and more laws than most other countries.

We have one of the highest incarceration rates of out citizens in the whole world.

Regulations and rules on almost everything.

Tons of taxes.

Government surveilance.

Seriously. When people say we have "freedom". What are they even talking about?

Freedom of speech? There must be 100 other countries out there also have this.

Where is this freedom?

The best decade is the one where you were in high school and college where life was more simple, everything was black & white and you could do stupid things because you were invincible. You could hang out for hours talking with your friends and it didn't really matter who was president.

You could also add to your list, all waters were basically clean, the air was cleaner, and people were much more SOVEREIGN than any time since.

Even tho' I wasn't around, I voted for 1910 and before for the following reasons:

NO FEDERAL INCOME TAX! (enacted 1913)


and we didn't have the U.N. trying to install a "New World Order" government over everyone.

America's enslavement really began in 1913, people just don't know it 'cause they don't know history, and they don't know what real FREEDOM is anymore.
