I think about this and find that there is not freedom of expression in my life. Why is there always reprisal from others?
This is probably what you want to say. English can be dificult because of the need for exact order of word placement.
Yeah, I'd say that in general there is freedom of expression in the U.S., but the limits are with how your freedom interferes with anothers or (more to your point) the self-inflicted limits one creates to get along with others while still holding on to your beliefs even when they are not popular.
