In metropolitan Melbourne

people would find "the right to bear arms" a very, VERY foreign concept. Oh yes, most of the people I know think that it's the government's job to protect them, including my very own siblings: that some magical being will come to save them when SHTF.

So, with that in mind, a great number of my "friends" [I really should leave them] have given their blessings to ObamaControl. When I read this, I was appalled:

"Change the gun laws Obama.... YES YOU CAN! Praying hard for those poor families"

So some people think that gun control is the best way to go, because it's the only thing that they've known for the past 17 years (look up the Port Arthur Massacre of 1996).

Also, most of those that I know offline, know nothing about Ron Paul. They are slaves to the TV culture. The thing that hurt me most was my sister calling Ron Paul a senile kook, and her celebration of Obama's re-election. Economics be damned!

Though I do think some people are awakening. I know a handful of my friends pointed out Obama's hypocrisy over drones. I even know on a Australian game server that there exists liberty-minded adults who decry gun control and the coming economic collapse. But the masses... my God, how they worship a murderer!

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.
