Ah, Newfoundland. Such a peaceful and beautiful place! A place infected with the limitless power that is the Federal Government. A place which used to be so tranquil and calm that you would never expect an 18 year old to jump a fence and stab an 11 year old boy in the neck. A place where gang violence takes to the streets and drugs run wild! With so many laws protecting those who would do you harm; and so many laws that restrict you, the law-abiding citizen from properly defending themselves. Such a wonderful land! One would wish to express their human right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, only to have it smashed by the Dominion that is Canada. This is a place where if we are attacked by much stronger or even multiple people, we cannot use a weapon as an equalizer. Not being allowed to legally take means to protect yourself effectively is like the government saying: "We own your body and we own your life". Oh how I love this place. Even the schools adapt to this bureaucratic way of life. A style that forces you to watch every single word that passes your lips, else some hypersensitive paranoid will take it as a warning sign of violence; having the school proceed to kick you out for multiple days while barely having the means to protect your innocence.
"I love this place" is something I would have said before, but not now. Our former republic has been assimilated into the anti-logic that is the Canadian government. The truth it that you don't own us, Canada! You may have claim to our land and have brainwashed your flock into relying on your services. You've taken my home from what is once was as a province: respectable; then replaced it with your mindless idiocy. I hope that I am not missed, for I will pursue a place that by the law of the land, respects us all as individuals and not cattle. We've had a good run, but once I am gone, I will never return.
