A free country doesn't take your wages so that the rich can give it to their buddies and other special interest groups. It doesn't keep making you continue to pay them to live in/on your own house. (property tax) and it doesn't convince you to try and kill yourself for the sake of the environment. (Believe me it's coming it's already occurring in Canada.) I have no love or trust in my country or my fellow man, and at this point, I'm tired and bitter I just want to be left alone. I just want to have some worthless acreage and a house I can call my own and pass down to my kids.
I cannot agree more with this, my country is no different and to be frank I am not sure if ANY nation nowadays is exempt from this.
Why love or trust anybody when so many just want to destroy you? Why love or trust your nation when it is more than happy to injure, maim, kill and replace you in an instant just because it can?
Taking this here, because one it would be thread spam, and two people might find it interesting if they stumble onto it. But did you know that Thomas Paine brings up the exact same thing in his book Common Sense he actually uses this to argue that Republics are more godly than kingdoms.
