I love my country.
I love the fact that I can own property that's mine and can't be taken away from me. (Until the local government decides a company could make more
profit for them there.)
I love the fact that I actually make a difference by voting. (Except when the voting machines get pre-set vote counts entered into them.)
I love the fact that as a photographer, I can freely photograph in public places. (Except near government buildings, banks, certain tall skyscrapers,
in trains, airports, etc...)
I love the fact that I can travel freely without being tracked. (Except for when a policeman sees my license plate or when I have to show my ID at an
airport, bus or train station.)
I love the fact that this is a free country with a small government that doesn't meddle in the personal affairs of its citizens. (Except for when
I'm required by law to wear a seatbelt or helmet, disallowed from using drugs deemed illegal and banned from or strictly controlled in homeschooling
my children in some states. Oh, and marriage licenses. This one is a long list that could go on for pages.)
I love my country!
Disclaimer: I always wear a seatbelt and never have and never will do drugs. This is, however, by personal choice and I do not believe the government
should tell me what to do.
