I'm back, and on my new computer finally. I had the privilege of meeting Boston T. Party at the recent SHOT Show in Las Vegas, and let me tell you, he burns with the intensity of a 200 watt bulb! He believes what he writes, and lives it, he's no poser, that is for certain!

I read Molon Labe in two nights right after the SHOT Show, and while it's certainly not a conventional novel, it shows real brilliance throughout. The columns interspersed throughout by "Whisk E. Rebellion" lay out the reasons for the Wyoming Free State Project in detail. I don't know if Libertarians will be up for following instructions on moving to certain counties on a planned schedule, in order to take over the political structure of a state, that seems like a stretch.

But certainly, as America continues its downward slide to socialism, tyranny and moral decadence, it's worth considering the benefits of freedom-lovers moving en-masse to one or two lesser-populated western states, and making a stand. This probably won't happen according to anybody's plan or schedule, but I hope that it happens. As freedom's torch dims in most of America, perhaps the torch can continue to burn brightly in a few outposts of liberty, and serve as a continuing benchmark for the rest of the nation.

Travis I think your right. Boston definately had fun with his novel, and that's part of what makes it fun to read. The Western Liberty Alliance link goes to a group that is working towards a free Wyoming (and Montana and Idaho) and it is a much more decentralized effort than the scenario Boston lays out, but it is happening.

Today I got a bill from a tax assessor that wants me to list all the property I have in a room I rent, so I can pay them some percent of its value. This room is not used for business at all. Wow! I thought the IRS was bad, but this is even more obnoxious. There is a special section for "libraries". Number of volumes, conditions, etc. They remind you to include artwork on the walls.
