Going Gault 11/7/12
Happy Rain

Posted on 09/29/2012 6:55:03 AM PDT by Happy Rain

On November 7 the patriots of America will have to make a decision that will rival those made in both 1776 and 1861.


TOPICS: Conspiracy
KEYWORDS: ifobamawins; nouingalt; vanity
Once again we have nominated a loser because the big money liberal leadership of both parties continue to give us choices detrimental to the United States Constitution. I'm voting for Paul Ryan and whatshisface but I am not sanguine that the reversal of one hundred years of socialist decline will be slowed much less reversed. There is no, unfortunately, "Gault's Gulch" where the oppressed believers in personal responsibility and individual freedom can escape to... ...at least not yet. I propose, if the Marxist wins, that we all collect our gold guns and groceries and meet in Texas to make it the final and, if God agrees once more, invincible redoubt of American liberty.

Galt’s Gulch is a descriptive metaphor. There are millions of Galt’s Gulches out there. Make your own and network.

The difference is that Americans made those decisions in 1776 and 1861. Americans are a much reduced portion of the voting public.

We may need trenches—there are no online trenches—when the fascists jack boots come we will need a physical rendezvous where we can dig in.

Texas did it twice against both Mexico and the Union—it has a tradition of resistance to tyranny and the region is tailor made for resistance.

I think that the Free State Project picked the wrong state in New Hampshire. It is clear now that any picked state for such a project would have to be far from the nearest litter box (e.g. Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle) as cities refugees can easily counteract a small group of principled libertarian types.

You need small population, distance from big cities, especially coastal cities, and some openness of the existing populace to libertarian types. That means places like Wyoming (too close to Denver?), Alaska, or maybe North Dakota or Alaska.

When the MLB managers refuse to bring up the best of the Minor Leagues...

They don't care, they figure the fans are stupid enough to believe they are watching the best just cuz they ARE in the Big Leagues...to them the money is still the same and glad handing the Devil gives you a better chance of not drawing back a nub than punching Him.

I find it hard to believe you spelled “Galt” wrong ....

Have you read the book...?

If you are going “Gault” it might be helpful to know what actually happened in “Atlas Shugged”

I have said for a long time that NH needed to establish a Minuteman project on the MA line in about 1950.

Actually, I'm starting to think that what we need to do to save the country is not to take over a state with right thinking people but to fence off an area in the middle of nowhere (A square about 100 miles per side in the Nevada dessert would do it) Then drop all of the Progressives, Communists, and Beautiful people from CA and Cape Cod into this area so they can build their utopia there but they can't get out to escape the mess they create

The regions you suggest are good in their remoteness, natural resources and ease of defense but Texas has the same resources, semi-remoteness (far from the Leftist crowd at any rate) and an already established large population of patriots who have the Founders’ understanding of the 2nd Amendment.

Funny, I know my thread is fantastic speculation but if Obama wins it will be as if a solar eclipse proved the wild speculations of Einstein...OMG it is!

Hells bells happy rain... If you want me to follow you down to Texas for the last stand against tyranny I wanted to know if you knew what you were talking about...

Of course I have read AS....

Personally having lived in Texas for 11 years ... It’s way to hot to hole up in Gault Gulch...in Texas...

Lived in Cowtown ....those of you know where that is....some don’t

When Satan Sherman burned out some of my people here in South Carolina they, like the outlaw Josey Wales, went to Texas which was too damn big and ornery to tolerate carpetbaggers and scalawags for very long...I have a few roots there.

Drought ridden dusty and hot with homos running Austin, Texas is still the the most capable state with the Founders spirit

I have always thought of going Galt as a positive “interception.”

Now if we are talking about my typo “Gault” sorry, I still carry a torch for Bob Hayes—the fastest man alive playing for the best football team in United States History...

GO COWBOYS!!!

Add Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida...

That's a hell of an idea...

We would own the Gulf of Mexico, huge natural resources, huge energy reserves, Fishing, one of the best beaches in the world...

We would need to build a fence at Palm Beach County border to keep the South Florida libtards under control...

I think seceding is inevitable. America can not become a socialist state. (At least as it is configured now)

Such talk in the South of 1861 was an honored application of the fundamentals in the US Constitution that were somewhat sullied by the curse of black slavery which demanded extra constitutional rationalizations to address—meaning Africa was the first to first bring down our Republic as founded and the last as the continents’ recent progeny endeavors to finish the misguided revenge.

A plus for Texas is that they retained as their right, when becoming a state, to secede.

If O gets in again - they just might.

Alaska? The Dakotas? Wyoming? The growing season is way too short and the heating season way too long. Galt’s Gulch must be someplace warmer. Texas sounds good to me, but there are large sections of the Southeast that could qualify.

There is no spell check when one posts vanities and I can't spell IQ. I have to fumble through the dictionary to determine if night is spelled with a k or a gn.

Still, misspelling the name of the greatest fictional hero of the 20th Century IS kind of embarrassing.

I was talking about a location for the Free State Project, not necessarily Galt's Gulch. Small population is neceessary for political takeover. That is different than an SHTF or survivalist location.

Also, if you pick your crops carefully, you might be surprised what you can grow in the north. Even Alaska has the benefit of VERY long daylight during its short summer. In the many of the northern states, water is not an issue as it is in large parts of the southwest.

I have a relative who is a healthcare professional living in Alaska. She tells me that the interminable winter darkness, extreme cold, and social isolation lead to a very high rate of depression and even suicide during Alaska’s winters. Gotta wonder if the high rate of alcoholism there is connected, too.

I do not understand how people can endure the cold, snow, and darkness up there in the winter. I have lived in the northern parts of the lower 48 and found it awful. Why someone would choose to inflict that on himself when he could live in warmer conditions is difficult to grasp. So you can go and establish your settlement up there, and I hope you have every success. Me, I’m trying to figure out a practical way to move further south than my present mid-Atlantic location.

Why someone would choose to inflict that on himself when he could live in warmer conditions is difficult to grasp.

First, I wasn't talking about me. I was talking about the Free State Project, a political operation, NOT a survival operation. They are straight libertarian (as opposed to Tea Party or conservative.) Their operation has a sizeable core of potheads who live and die on that issue. I am not one of them, as I am an up and down conservative who prioritizes social/life/cultural issues.

Second, like Texas, Alaska is a B-I-G state. Some of the coastal areas have a climate similar to Washington D.C.

My Canadian mother-in-law would have as much bad to say about the hot weather down south as you do about the cold weather in the north. For the record, I am a northerner who prefers hot weather. I also know that conservative or not, a lot of Texans in particular and southerners in general aren't partial to Yankees of any kind moving in. Even if we be conservative, our ways are not their ways. Also, many Yankees' conception of conservative is essentially different than the southern conception. For my part, I am willing to respect that.

In any event, in an SHTF situation, Texas would likely be a great place to be, depending on which S hits which fan. It many well be that in an extremely severe situation, the actual state may not be as important as the local (as in 10 mile radius) situation. It might be better to be in Ogle County, Illinois or West Nowhere, Oregon than Austin, Texas.

Strange indeed that we should even be having this discussion. We live in interesting times, eh? Wherever you end up, I hope you find peace and prosperity there. Me, I’m going to try to hunker down in a little cove in the Virginia Piedmont and try to avoid being noticed.
