I'm preparing as if we have to go Galt, but not going to give up yet. It's still possible to take this back, but if we all hide too early, we may make it impossible take it back as a result, and just allow them to take more.

Churchill (never give up) is a more realistic solution than Galt.

This is the point we are at with our government....In simple terms, how does a child get through to irrational, tyrannical parents?

I see the scenario as being more that the spoiled children have decided that they run the household, and it's time for the adults to administer the beatings until things get back into order.

>>Churchill (never give up) is a more realistic solution than Galt.<<

In a world sans the technology at the fingertips of the government, and where you are fighting an equal, I would agree. That is no longer the situation.

If our founding fathers attempted to fight a King George with the technology that is available to the current US government, Paul revere would have been nabbed before he got close to his horse. Frankly, Paul would have disappeared months before.

The whole game has changed. Sometimes you just gotta let evil reach it’s full fruition and collapse of it’s own weight, and try to be there as part of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes.

You see, in my opinion, in a democracy,the problem is not the government. It is the mass of citizens that elect that government. They will just keep electing more Maxine Waters’, Obamas, Kennedys, Kerrys, Franks’, Franken, McCains etc. And those that they elect are driving this country off a cliff, except, IMO, it is already off the cliff and in freefall. Short of sprouting wings, it is doomed to hit the bottom, and very soon.

So I have gone Galt, in pretty much every way I can.

Please interpret from the perspective of my tag line.

"The American people will always find a way to freedom..."

Always? I used to think that too. But now, I'm realizing that the "American people" have changed drastically from what they were back in the days of my mom and dad. For one thing, we have millions more immigrants living here now, ones that do NOT work, pay taxes and contribute but that DO reject the American culture and language, while embracing socialism and/or communism. We have so many foreigners here now, that I feel like I am in another country when I go to the bank, store, etc.

Is it any wonder that half of the country has misplaced loyalties? Loyalties that lie in other countries perhaps? Couple that with the entitlement-minded African Americans and other minorities and you have an eventual recipe for economic disaster, which is what we're witnessing now. Even without the robbing and raping of America that the DemocRats have done, this system would eventually fail on its' own without a radical reversal.

So no, I don't agree with that "always". I only wish it were so.

I understand what you are saying...but if you look back at the American Revolution, the country was not united on fighting for Independence....A good portion of the citizens liked being aligned with England and a good portion was not interested in fighting the war...It took leaders and believers in freedom....The stats I read once on the revolution(not vouching for their authenticity) Was that 1/3 of the country wanted to break with England and 1/3 didn't care and the other 1/3 wanted to maintain allegiance..I think it has always been that way....The saying "Give me liberty or give me death" still applies in the hearts of many....

On that I am an optimist....

Stimulous passed. That is one trillion dollars of communist empowerment and designs. Makes your hair curl when you see what is in that monster.

These are unsettling times... we’ve had a lot of losses - some wins. The O’Keefe and Hannah thing was a clear win - they’ll be others. Hang in there - we’re with you.
