DesertExile: Free Range vs. Domesticated

Free Range vs. Domesticated

I have horses--two of them.
Last night, I began thinking about the difference from my horses, and those who run "Free Range", that is, they can go where they want, when they want.
My horses have a barn, a large corral, and a "pasture" about 50 yards wide and 100 yards long. You would call them "Domesticated" horses.
Some poor horses don't ever get to run or stretch their legs. They stand for days in 12X 12 stalls.
While the owner may love them, the owner usually is limited by funds on how much space the horse gets, and the quality of their feed.
Domesticated horses must depend on a human to feed them, clean their stalls, and turn them out for exercise.
Free Range horses must depend on themselves. They have to find forage and water. But they can run when they want to and go eat whenever.
My point is this: Humans have comparable arrangements.
There are those limited to "Rabbit-Hutch" apartments, and who have to endure the noise of other people's living. Often, they depend on some Government Assitance check twice a month.
Others live away from other humans in various sized dwellings. Usually it is too far to go to a cafe or restaraunt, and this person must prepare his/her own meals.
Personally, I want to b e "Free Range". I want to get my own foodand come and go what I want to.
IF the American people are STUPID ENOUGH to vote Hillary Clinton--or any other Socialist Pig in, staying alive will depend on the State. You WILL BE DOMESTICATED.
But then, there are a lot of people who live on Government Assistance. All you have to do is give up your freedom and your dignity.

No--I have three horses, but I can't get them all in one place at one time
