I'll agree with you that the US has become a de facto police state, but it's by no means the most oppressive state on this planet (yet).
Not to say that there's anything good about our situation but at least we we haven't had our freedom to criticize removed via hate crime laws nor do we have trash police going through everyone's garbage. We're also lacking the death penalty for apostasy that some other more oppressive states have.
