I think it's time that Conservatives in this Country start thinking about a way to guarantee ourselves and our progeny a way to start over again with a clean slate, and in a constructive way that will allow a true Constitutional Government to form and flourish somewhere out of harm's way.
I think we need to consider a bloodless coup and take Liberia back. They have had plenty of time to make something of it and have failed miserably for decades. If we agreed to put all of the 3.5 Million Liberians on a plane to Detroit, and award them citizenship and a Democrat Party voter registration card on arrival, it will be difficult to find enough planes to get them over here quick enough.
The United States helped establish the Republic of Liberia in 1847 as a way to help freed slaves leave the United States and return to Africa. The idea was to give these people a way to govern themselves and be successful, but history of Liberia is long and tattered, and even today people largely subsist on less than $2 a day. They can do a lot better than that in Detroit right now, under the generosity of Premier Hussein, and all of those abandoned houses in Detroit and Flint Michigan are like McMansions compared to what Liberians are living in today. Obama's Kenyan brother is better off than the average Liberian, and THAT is really saying something...
Given the current Regime's track record to date and the growing trend to provide womb to the tomb services at the expense of "the taxpayers" (whomever they are these days...) I cannot help but wonder if the Liberians would not be far happier to be relocated to Michigan, to repopulate the lower Peninsula with badly needed Government Dependents, which would leave the entire Country of Liberia wide open to a bloodless Conservative coup, where we could reestablish our Nation the way that the Founders intended, and give some of us a chance to get the hell out of Dodge before the whole thing finally collapses over here.
Think of the opportunities for Capitol investment on the Dark Continent! The construction required is enough to build the new economy on, and of course we would still have all of those International shipping licenses to manage (without the graft...) It would create a Neo-Frontier with the new call being "Head East, Young Man!!". We could have a new Homestead act, and award 200 acre plots of jungle if you can fight of the pygmies for five years. (I personally have almost enough ammo on hand to make that mission achievable...)
Let's face it, nobody has been able to successfully civilize Africa, and just think what we could do with a foothold like this, and the right financing in place. If we can find a way to sell the Dhimmies short on any of their plans we could have quite a pot of money....what Africa desperately needs is a good dose of Conservatism and an outstanding example to follow.
The only thing holding us back is air and opportunity...
That is all...
What’s the Liberian soccer team like?
Will never happen.
Liberians have their standards.
Let’s trade Vermont for....
Oh, hell. Let’s just give Vermont away.
Liberia is an equivalent hellhole to Michigan.
Can’t we just give Michigan to “them” (whoever “they” are) and let them keep Liberia too?
I’m thinking that if they balk at taking Michigan, we throw in Mexico too. And California, if need be.
who says anyone wants Michigan?
Do you, for one millisecond, believe, that if they were to get unfettered control here they would leave the new Liberia alone to prosper ?
Socialists need productive slaves to provide for the leeches. While an amusing thought, I say we ship all the liberals to Liberia and have them fend for themselves.
I landed there in the late sixties and was not impressed.
The prop plane had to land at the Monrovia airport for repair work.
We were not allowed to leave the airport.
Liberia was, just a generation ago, the best run country in central Africa. Then, it was governed by descendants of freed American slaves, who had modeled the Liberian Constitution after ours. That all changed when the gimme crowd threw them out of power. It was damn frightening how fast it happened. Thousands of Liberians were granted refugee status in the United States.
hey! hands off my home state! I love Michigan.
We don't give a *#*# for the whole state of Liberia
the whole state of Liberia
the whole state of Liberia
Nope, that song just doesn't sound right.
There's a lot to this state besides Detroit and Flint. Bush won 68 out of 83 counties. McCain won 38 after publicly announcing that he quit here.
>> Liberia was, just a generation ago, the best run country in central Africa.
A few generations ago, Michigan was a pretty decent state.
My, how things change.
Maybe we should judge Texas by Austin from here on out.
We banned affirmative action and gay marriage. We’re gun friendly.
Most important, we’re likely to flip GOP in the coming elections.
And now for something completely different (By way of Kieri)
Monica Conyers enrolled in divinity school.
I still love Detroit. Downtown looks fantastic and these days it looks cleaner than I have seen it in a good while. Flint..ugh!
I like Downtown as well. I just wish the same effort put in downtown was put in over in their schools and neighborhoods.
Naah... Just cut out Detroit, Flint, and Saginaw. We can keep the rest of Michigan, as it is conservative.
