>unless you have "fuck you" money
You need to separate wants from needs. Land in California close to shopping centers, airports, etc is expensive as hell. Land in the middle of nowhere Wyoming is like $4k for 40 acres. The cost of living is really dirt cheap, it's just that bugmen are weighed down by unnecessary expenses and blame everyone else for their poverty. Auto loans because they financed a new shitbox, expensive rent because they didn't do their research on housing, fast food and boxed frozen dinners because they never learned how to cook, needless online entertainment, new video games, electronics, and consumer products. Nobody needs any of that, and it's expensive as hell.
I am not a rich man, but everyone thinks I am because I buy almost nothing and keep my expenses as low as possible. Cut out the expenses, work, save up, do your research and buy that land. The biggest problem the right has is this idiotic desire to stay plugged in to the society they hate. Either go full bugman or get out, anything in between will just make you miserable.
