I know how you feel. My mom is paranoid, and I rarely leave the house.
Some points you need to realize. You are a teenager, and therefore, your judgment is tainted by hormones. Your mom has had a lot more expierience in life than you, so her "lame excuses" might not actually be as lame as you think.
She is your mother, and therefore deserves your respect and obedience. She probably has a reason for keeping you sheltered. I'd suggest talking to her calmly, and rationally about it. Life isn't all about hanging out with friends and having fun.

I know how you feel. Sort of. Thank God my mom isn't that paranoid but my grandmother, who lives a few blocks away and comes over a lot is EXTREMELY paranoid. Sometimes I just have to think like: okay so if this was my little girl who wanted to go out by herself with all the murderers and rapists around how would I feel. Then I have some sympathy.
