Afraid so, but I will be leaving soon enough, too old to care anymore.
Odd though we are building massive machines to find out who is naughty and nice. All it took when I was a kid was a belief in God, guess that doesnt work anymore.
I may be just a youngster at 55 and almost every hour of the day I rack my brain on ways to kick socialism’s ass, how to make it consume itself, how to create its downfall based upon historical facts.
I too am leaving the country, because there is no more frontier, no more freedom, no home of the brave I could sarcastically say.
Many think Australia is a socialistic country, it is in some fashion but its vast and with a small population, its a new frontier short of colonization in space. I am heading there shortly after I sell my guns since I had nothing to shoot at, my motorcycles, my brass HO train collection, my diecast collection and then my model ship collection some of which are solid wood.
Giving it all up to park myself someplace else that will be hotter, more barren, may have no job for me and probably doesn’t want me because of my age as a citizen, but I’ll just fade off into the bush, find a billabong and build a cabin out of truck parts. I’ll survive because I’ll be free. Best wishes as well to where you are heading.
Sadly, the state is now assuming the roll of "Our Holly Father" and it has taken on godlike powers over people. This will end badly, as it always does throughout history when men have such hubris as to assume the roll of deity.
