    free reign'
    as in giving a horse a free rein to go where it wants to go.

    rain = that liquid stuff that comes out of the sky
    rein = strap that is attached to the bit in a horse's mouth
              which goes to the rider to control the horse, or
    reign = sovereignty over subject(s)

    I really hate to be some kind of grammar police but when I see homophones misused I obsess on them.
