We have some property just south of Florence, AZ. An hour from Phoenix/Mesa, an hour from Tucson. Land is relatively cheap there right now, but expected to go up with the economy -- if it ever does. We paid $10K for a piece of property that was appraised
at $87K in 2005!
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
