Tired of the political hijinks in the United States?
“Let’s go to Australia!”
In 1997, the Australian government implemented draconian anti-gun laws. They rounded up millions of rifles, pistols and shotguns, cut them all in half and burned them. Overnight the Australian government disarmed their law-abiding citizenry; nowadays only criminals can possess firearms in Australia. Australians are forbidden the basic human right of arming themselves in self-defense.
In America we have a contract with the government – the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights lists what citizens can do – our freedoms – and what the government cannot do to us. No other country has this. In every other country in the world, the government tells the people what they can and cannot do. We are the exception to this rule; this is what makes us exceptional. This is American Exceptionalism. – Sean Linneane
You should click on the above text and read Sean’s whole essay. And give thanks, despite all the sociopolitical hijinks here, we still live in The United States of America.
We could always emigrate to Canada! Except, Canada has one-tenth our population, abysmal gun laws, NO Bill of Rights, and The Mounties – who resemble our federal law enforcement on steroids! And, It’s COLD!
Nice people though, as are the Aussies…
