Skip to comments.Economic war between the states proposed
Posted on 11/04/2008 10:49:50 PM PST by hyperconservative
Freepers, do not be so disheartened by yesterday's election results for the Good Lord has allowed this to happen for a reason. This election was not the end of anything; it was just one major battle. And we lost but we must keep fighting in the ways we know best.
I am a capitalist living in a socialist-nanny state called Ohio, aka O-Heil-o by many of the residents. Ohio has been socialist for at least 10 years,IMO.
So, here's my idea: we wage an embargo against the socialist pig states(the Obummer states)or a boycott, if you prefer that term.
You who are living in the capitalist states stop buying goods and services produced in the crappy states and stop hiring young people who recently graduated from these bad states' colleges and universities(because they'll make awful employees anyways).
Freepers living in other countries are asked to also participate in the economic war between the states here.Buy only from the Good States of America and hire only people from these Good States.
The following information will be needed from each and every socialist state IN(but not of) America: Names of all companies headquartered there, names of all companies(small, medium and large)doing business there,(domestic and foreign alike) number of employees,union and non-union alike industry/sector, and products list
It will also be necessary to have a list of replacement goods and services, whether such goods and services are produced in the Good States of America or in good and normal countries around the globe.
I choose to fight because it is in my blood. I welcome your comments. Use Freepmail if you want privacy.
So you’re going to run conservative companies out of business because they’re in the “wrong” state?
Great idea, a$$wipe—screw everybody in one state regardless of who they voted for.
Methinks that sounds like punishing capitalistic people unfortunate enough to inhabit blue states. Why not just boycott socialistic companies themselves, instead of whole states?
Check out this thread.
Your idea is NUTZ. Everyone in a state, Red or Blue, doesn’t think the same. There are a lot of conservatives in blue states and liberals in red states. Judge each individual or business for what they are, not where they live.
Hey moonhawk, don’t blame him. He’s simply a product of the failed public skooool system there. No real original thoughts or anything.
When does your boycott of the California-based FreeRepublic website begin?
We should also boycott message boards based in socialist states, like that California over there.
Not to worry me buckos. They will be on their knees to us within a year. All we gotta do is let them have free reign. HAHAHA. Buyers remorse will set in. Can you imagine Obama in the White House resposible for everything that happens. HAHAHAHAHAHA. The moocher voters are gonna go ballistic. HAHAHAH. ON YOUR KNEES MF’rs.
I remember the years that Bob Hope would not entertain at the Ohio State Fair because of Democrat leadership in the state.
Needs some revision, don’t you think?
I’m not sure why folks are doggin’ your idea. I’m not particularly interested in a boycott. I’m more interested in a full-blown “Two Americas” approach. Let’s just divide the nation into Liberal and Conservative states. We’ll cut it up fair; libs can have Hawaii, we’ll take Alaska. I think the libs can take California (duh!) and Oregon, but we’ll take Washington. Northeast? Definately lib. Southeast, we’ll take that. I’m not sure if the libs would want the Midwest even if it was offered to ‘em, so we’ll gladly take it.
We offer folks the opportunity to swap similar homes, give ‘em a couple years for the transition. We split the military in two. When the libs go to unilaterally disarm, we’ll take those nasty guns and missiles off their hands. When they disarm their citizens, we’ll take their small arms, too.
We can do a free trade agreement with the lib states, sure. Hey, we might even watch a couple of their Hollywood movies if they are good ones (fat chance of that happening). If they want to get food, they can buy it from us. They’ll try to do the “organic” gardening thing, but folks will tire of paying $6 for a carrot.
I think after 20 years, we’d see a mass migration of folks from the impoverished-but-free-healthcare Liberal nation over to our nation where it’s no-frills government but if you earn it, you keep it.
I so wish it was possible to cook up a “sim city” version of this so it could be tried without actually tearing our nation in half...
Give them Rhode Island instead.
“So, here’s my idea: we wage an embargo against the socialist pig states(the Obummer states)or a boycott, if you prefer that term.”
So you want to boycott my county, who gets no representation because we’re stuck in a blue state and still votes 68% republican?
Gee, thanks. Do it county by county and I’m with you.
This is more a rural/urban battle than anything else. Sarah Palin proved that.
Bad idea! Actually we had better buy what we need from all of the US companies now because under Obama business tax plan most companies will close up shop or move off shore. Obama will devastate US businesses.
“This election clearly demonstrates that the United States Federal government is broken beyond repair.”
Yes. It’s too big and out of control for anyone to manage properly and efficiently.
Was the operation very painful?
(You know, the brain transplant where you were the donor.)
The problem with this theory is that punishing those blue states will only make them vote more Democrat. When folks prosper they vote Republican.
I'll wake up and go to work in the morning but I feel like a little piece of me died last night a piece of America will die under this marxist.
I guess I was a little harsh...
But here in NM we will now be blessed with an all Dem delegation in Congress.
Can’t wait to be punished for that.
Well folks, I think what is proposed is a variation of what I've been thinking. (at least a part of me). If they want to see a “BAD economy, I'm getting ready. Get your money out of the market, use no credit, only buy what is absolutely necessary from USA companies, hire no help, make do or do without, hide your money in the mattress,produce only what you, your families and neighbors need.
The interest rates can't go much lower, the markets are already trashed because of two years of a democratic congress,....Tighten you belts and live conservatively..... sit back and see how the cities survive without the support of rural and small town folks.
Just move on down to Texas. The summers are a little warm, but otherwise you should enjoy it.
I read a prophecy some years ago that I wasn’t quite sure how to take . . .
It asserted that there would comea day when only business with a Christian in them would survive, much less prosper. And that other folks would come to Christians begging them to join them that the other folks’ businesses would survive in hard times.
We shall see. I can imagine that happening.
I just know that God will take care of those WHO TRULY LOVE HIM AND PUT HIM FIRST.
And that everyone else doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell.
When he seeks reelection only good things will be reported.
When he wins the second term, only democrats who are seeking higher office will lightly criticize. The media will once again tell the electorate that with the mess Bush gave him eight years ago, how could anyone but him had made progress?
Oh yeah, now that Obama has been elected, lets see how many talking heads refer to him as "Obama" since they have only called President Bush "Bush".
He will be called President by them. Wait and see.
Follow the money = the media - they are the ones who reaped from all of the $$$ from this election especially from Obama, he had the most to spend. The media is a business first an most of all. The media beat Bush down and then set up the selection. To change we must first organize and then set goals.
Sounds like a good plan. So is Amish country still “on”?
County by county is better, thanks for the tip.It was a late night.
Don’t just boycott the media, put those f**kers out of business. Start a newspaper or newsletter or magazine, not another website or blog. Many people don’t have Internet access or don’t use it for news-purposes.
Those who voted with their bellies and their pockets should know hunger now. Hunger and uncertainty.
I like the basic gist of the idea. It needs a little fine-tuning of course, but this is no time for doing business as usual. A majority of voters has chosen a known socialist-Marxist-quasiNazi to be their Sugar Daddy in chief and the Electoral College will follow suit.
Drastic and sustained response will be necessary.
Thank you for your suggestions and have a prosperous day.
Better yet, how about a economic war against local newspapers in the blue counties of states like Ohio and Virginia and any other state that was a Bush state in 2000 and 2004.
My own county went for Obummer by a slight margin to my great shock. We’re usually a 60/40 conservative county here.
Community newsletters and newspapers need to be produced and sold—that’s the war of ideas and the economy wrapped up into one package.
Targeted action sustained over time will produce good results by 2010(midterm elections) and in 2012.
Can you imagine Obama in the White House resposible for everything that happens...... Everything for the next 100 years will be Bush’s fault. No matter what, when we go communist, it will be Bush’s fault.
"Bush's fault" might be a liberal screed for decades, but I'm suspecting Obama will be the Next Jimmy Carter. In four years, hopefully, many of the same people celebrating today will be the ones running Obama out of the White House and into the pages of history.
