Skip to comments.Question: Ideas about how to realistically "Go Galt"?

I plan to cancel cable tv, quit the health club, am putting off purchases that I had planned IF Romney had won.
Am happy to hear ideas...I have to say my spouse was literally in tears last night, thinking about what dangers we face (not just as a family but as a society and a nation). We prayed together, asking God to guide us. HE knew this was going to happen, and HE can use this for HIS glory.
We just want to be as wise as possible with the resources God has provided.
So we welcome your input.
Boycott all. Newspapers magazines cable tv etc
I have a question for you about passports.
When I signed my passport I used a short version of my signature which does not match signatures on my other documents.
Is it possible for me to go through some process to get this changed so my normal signature is on it too?
If you call Rush Limbaugh and tell him how great he is you may be able to get one for free
I predict a second civil war will happen down the road. Last night has confirmed my fears.
American’s cannot OWN land, but they can rent long-term and/or legally BUY Condos...
Subic area is not the same any more... I am personally heading for Cebu in January! I have a 3-bedroom, 2 bath house two blocks from the beach, for 6500p (here’s one advertised for P6500/$183USD- http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/4712828/House+and+Lot+for+Rent?event=Search+Ranking,Position,3-1,41 )
VA has Med Services for those with disability only, but you can see a Philippine Doctor for about $10!
infact, buying most things slightly used would not only save money, but cost the big timers profit...boo hoo
Very good and interesting thread. It appears to me that the only thing standing between the people and absolute financial disaster, is now the House of Representatives. The only govt body still somewhat in the hands of potential conservatives. That body will be pilloried far more than they have been during obamas first term if they attempt to save the economy by reducing spending and stopping the ridiculous borrowing that has doubled the debt and given us a deficit of 1.4 trillion.
State legislators are also going to play because they are in on the deficit increases by accepting govt cash that is worth forty percent less by virtue of borrowing. I would love to see states figure out how to funnel all federal income tax through their Dept of Revenue and extracting what would normally come their way before sending it in to what may become a very cash strapped federal govt.
If Obama thought the economy was coming back, I wonder what he is going to think once January gets here and obamageddon sinks in, followed very closely by 2014 and full implementation of obama care. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a very bumpy ride IMHO.
Oh and they are already announcing the new season premier of “doomsday preppers”. Soon to be one of the most watched.
Surely the status quo is not going to be a solution for what ails us?
The easiest way is to withdraw your money from the bank in physical cash and put it in a safe deposit box. It can’t be loaned out by the bank, and will slow growth. If you have any debt, pay it off now.
That’s an ideal place for me because I love going to Koh Samui, Island, Thailand, I also LOVE the coffee in Saigon and I want to visit Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam which is across the water from Koh Samui.
Actually it is the Unions that were the driving force behind the GRA (guaranteed retirement accounts). It has not gone away. Research GRA on Google. It’s disgusting...
Look for ways to eliminate government from the life of you and your family. Many small towns are dying. Settle there and concentrate on taking care of yourself. Simplify your life by eliminating all the extra stuff you didn’t have 20 years ago. Barter for services. Learn to raise food enough for your family. Live every day depending on God and each other and not the government.
We finally made the decision to cancel all of our movie channels. It’s a small start.
One question we have is, of the places where we must buy necessities, which are union and which are non-union? It would be nice if there was a resource where we could find out.
It really pains me to say this, but while I’ve never driven anything but Fords, my next vehicle will NOT have been assembled by a labor union. Period. And, I’ll move heaven and earth to keep my current vehicles running before buying another used one (I never buy new).
“We dont have to hire as often as we did before for services we can do ourselves or we can limit our hiring to those who are like minded.”
Why don’t we set up a Freeper thread where folks looking to hire other folks can list jobs and Freepers looking for work can do the same?
Hide in plan sight. Live a simple debt free life. Raise a fair amount of your own food and barter as much as possible. The Government is only interested in you if they know you have money. Do as little as possible to support the Government in any way. Join in a network of like minded people. Never help anyone that supports the Government even family.
Be free or die so.
If you can, home school your children.
I am definitely on the same page.
