Australians are Very 'Patriotic'

I found this article and am so glad to see that Aussies are 'doing their duty' for their mother country!

CANBERRA, Australia - Treasurer Peter Costello urged Australians to “do their patriotic duty” and have more children but it seems they were doing it anyway, just for fun. A new study shows the birthrate hitting its highest level in seven years.

A study by Australian National University demographer Peter McDonald showed the country’s birthrate at 1.77 per woman in 2004, its highest level since 1997. McDonald believes the rate will stay around 1.8 for the next 5-10 years.MSNBC


Who knew that patriotism could be so much fun?

We are very patriotic aren't we?
Well I am out off this game (child production).
Still, one can be only proud of his/her fellow countrymen and women doing the best for their country. :-)
