@Zeust, as in most things, everything you mention varies by jurisdiction. The USA is an actual federal state. Each individual US state has a parallel jurisdiction to the over-arching jurisdiction of the USA. Where there are no federal laws, state law holds. In many cases, where there are federal laws, state law can supersede, depending on how the federal law is written. Every example you give actually has 51 different variations (one for each state and then a 51st for those territories that are under exclusively Federal jurisdiction). In some cases, the variations can be in complete opposition to each other. General statements about law in the USA are less likely to be true than for general statements about law over the entire extent of Europe.

okay, so I just found a website that rates freedom and though big part of the World was green, only Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland scored 100. Denmark had 98 and USA had 90. Canada was on 99 and New Zealand was on 98.

They all were rated 1 (I think) on a scale of 1-7 on freedom, which is great, but still

America is just so shocked that he isn't number 1, but at least he's in the top 10.

Of course, it depends on what criteria you use for gauging freedom.

By two of my gauges, there are ZERO free countries, but the US comes closest and no others are worthy of consideration.

Which is why I moved here.

It's never not funny to watch America like that, or knowing that he isn't the freest country.
Well, America isn't a country of course, it's a part of the world. U.S.A is the country. It's just known as America here in Europe (and maybe in other parts of the world).
