      Can anything be done to stop these taco stands that seem to pop up out of nowhere after 5pm. They take up room on the sidewalks and there customers park in the red zone and just create a havoc.

Depite the fact that you admire the oppressive regime started by Lee Quan Yew and Inherited by his son. You also seem to be saying that the only liberties worth preserving are those that you agree with.

We have stop signs that restrain personal liberty for the sake of everyone's security. We get frisked at the airport and can't take liquids on board (no liberty there) for the sake of security. We have hate speech laws, slander laws, libel laws, and many other laws that restrain personal freedom for the sake of security. You cannot yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater because it's a safety and security issue. We have to pay our taxes even though our money goes to pay for wars and other things we are against. Come on ... get real. Quotes and cliches are nice but they're not real life. You're a lot less free than you think you are.
