I've been talking with my family about it. Watching what's happening to my country is becoming unsufferable.
I'll certainly commit when I get enough people on board. The more I think about this idea the more I absolutely love it. I'm going to have kids soon and I want some hope for them not to have to spend their lives in a socialist s***hole.
The Switzerland of the West! Besides, why not go for the good real estate? We've already got Hollywood on the run and San Francisco is geographically small enough we might just be able to tent it! A little methyl bromide and my summer home at Pacific and Divisadero would be fully fumigated!
It's not as hard as one might think to get rid of the freeloaders. Just start a Socialist State Project somewhere else and the bums will run to it like flies to feces! Might I suggest Oregon? They're already nine tenths of the way there and I am sure the voters are willing! It would make a nice contrast.
I can dream, can't I?
I realize it's somewhat hollow to say this; but, nevertheless, here it goes, anyway.
Would you find any consolation in knowing you're not alone in your sentiments?
Because you're certainly not.
"I'll certainly commit when I get enough people on board. The more I think about this idea the more I absolutely love it."
Back when the Berlin Wall came down?
I suggested to my wife that, given the desperate condition those new countries & the people living there were in?
Insofar as while they were desperately trying to be free (ie capitalist free-market economy, elected representatives et al)?
Those people didn't have a clue, did not know how to be free, either.
Suggested we just might find the *kind* of life we were promised & frankly are not getting (here);or, at least find the opportunity to build one & without the incredible bullshit-resistance we seem to be getting from our own countrymen.
She then mentioned the bitter irony of our returning to the eastern european countries our grandfather's origin; after, they risked life & limb to flee & for the exact same reason(s) we're now once again considering leaving.
More than a hundred years later; history repeats.
Needless to say, our's was only a dream; as, we're well aware of the corruption & madness which has overcome those newly created Republics.
Hell's Bells, even what's happening in the european WASP nations is a crying shame as well as a disgusting, pathetic Socialist mess.
As for inhabiting a >>state<< somewhere from among our existing states?
One populated "by" like-minded people of the "conservative" mindset?
On the face it sounds idealic.
Another -- wise -- poster has already mentioned what happened the last time such a thing was attempted.
Because seriously & as sure as God made little green apples?
If such a thing came to pass, penultimately Washington would interfere to the point the place we'd created, would be unbearable, unliveable, not what we'd wanted in any shape or form.
Then, ultimately, they'd send in their goons to destroy each & every individual who dared resist their meddling ways.
IF THIS WERE TO BE REALISTICALLY CARRIED OUT?
It'd have to be done as a mass-migration to a smaller, third-world nation; whereby, by virtue of our numbers & the resources we'd brought with, we'd simply take over.
I had neighbors whose daughter & son-in-law were going to -- of all places -- Belize with the idea of doing exactly what I suggested above.
I have absolutely no idea whatever became of those two, either; as, we've long since moved away from their parents.
...fwiw & fyi; both those people were stalwart Libertarians.

Has anyone decided on a state? How much (violent or otherwise) resistance do you guys predict from the feds?
Very cool ...
Without a doubt, having children and rearing them yourself is probably the single most terrifying act of rebellion one can wage against the Machine.
I'll keep you and your future family in my prayers.
