First thing they would need is bigger lakes.

Not sure where Wyoming will park an aircraft carrier, but hey, building it ought to stimulate the economy. Maybe every state should buy one.

Lol. Perhaps the bill needs some tweaking, but they might be on the right track.

Maybe I should encourage my husband to take a call to Wyoming...

Every state should have contingency plans in place, and if they can have them in place before November they would be extremely wise.

Someone is thinking ahead.

"Molon Labe!"

A novel by Boston T. Party (Kenneth W. Royce)

Book Description:

After a decade of retaking their stolen freedoms, the people of Wyoming (many of them newcomers) are forced to finally confront their jealous masters in the U.S. Government. Can a lone, courageous state successfully resist federal tyranny, or has the Bill of Rights been reduced to a myth? Can an allegedly free people act free, or is our liberty just a 4th of July farce?

These issues weigh heavily on the shoulders of Governor James Wayne Preston, a decorated Desert Storm Marine helo pilot. Elected in 2014 on the Laissez-Faire Party ticket, he enjoys nearly full support of the legislature to return Wyoming to a long-lost era of liberty. But how far can he and the people of his state go before Washington, D.C. feels compelled to act? Will Wyoming's free and independent course reach actual secession? Will President Melvin Connor suppress the maverick Western state with federal troops? Will anybody come to Wyoming's aid?

Molon Labe! is a fictional account of a real-world blueprint for a free state initiative focused on Wyoming. If enough freedom-loving individuals will relocate there under a useful pattern, they can "liberate" the Cowboy State on many levels.

In Wyoming we could truly enjoy our rights of gun ownership, privacy, schooling, health and diet, unrestricted travel, and property. Boston shows us how it actually can be done!

Well, I recall the Canadian show that suggested they didn’t have access to salt water, so why did they need a navy.
Go Wyoming!

“Well, I recall the Canadian show that suggested they didn’t have access to salt water, so why did they need a navy.”

Canada has a large Atlantic shoreline, borderline New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Price Edward’s Island, and Newfoundland-Labrador. They also have all the North American shore of the Arctic Ocean, as well as a nice stretch of Pacific coastline in British Columbia.

But I don’t think that Canada has any air-craft carriers. Maybe Wyoming could trade them an extra carrier for some shoreline-access.

Canada does have a few submarines, and I think that one of them actually works.

I know. That was the joke in asking Americans why Canada needed a navy, since "...they didn't have a salt water port." I'll have to research if they've got a submarine. :-)

The “Wyoming” aircraft carrier would probably be stationed in the gulf of Mexico and used to Help Shore up Texas’s defense against what is left of the liberal states.

When you have a $16k taskforce, you get aircraft carriers cruising the Grand Tetons.
