I am a 5 year retired SW engineer who has recently discovered the Shire / Free state movement by listening to FTL, which is broadcast on KVFC in Colorado on Sunday. I spent the first 42 years of my life in California and never really liked the heavy micro-managing attitude of the state government. Although I’m not entirely anti-government it would be really good if government would stop trying to grow itself at the expense of people who do actual productive work.
Politically I’ve always been somewhere between conservative and libertarian. What little activism I’ve been involved in are for gun rights and I was heavily involved protesting traffic cameras in Arizona (money grubbing devices, safety benefit very questionable if it exist at all).
As to why I’m here, mostly curiosity.
Wow, a radio listener! Welcome.
