When I was but a wee lad, (OK I was never “wee”. And even “lad” might be doubtful. But play along!) before I graduated college, even before I found my soul mate, I went on vacation to Nevada. It was, at that time, a land of freedom. The Wild West. No speed limits, no drinking age, no gambling age, no taxes, not much gooferment, not much water. It was Paradise in the dessert. (Or desert!) I said to myself: “Boy, what great place to live. I should move here after graduation.” And, when vacation ended, I went home. And, forgot about it. (Guess I didn’t write it down. And, there were no blogs in those days to capture the possibilities.)
Lo and behold, I wake up many decades later and “Shouldas, wouldas, and couldas” are eating me alive. How would life have been different if I had moved for Freedom, Liberty, and the “Wild West”. Now, I’m “anchored” with the thousand strings that held Gulliver in Lilliput. And, old fart stuck in his ways.
But you’re not!
May I point out that there is another “land of freedom” emerging? The Free State Project is moving 20k Liberty Lovers to NH. They will transform the landscape. And, bring liberty to that State. Too late for me; not for you!
I urge you to take a jaunt to Porcfest and meet some pioneers.
Lest, like Scrooge, you wake up one Christmas morning, many decades from now and say “Shouldas, wouldas, and couldas”.
