And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord!
Had a conversation with a friend just yesterday. He said if Obama won he and his wife were going to the Phillipines where they already own land.
Already gone. It’s been working out very well the last 4 years. Non-essential spending is at a minimum. Immediate family gatherings have increased. Philosophies of freedom and faith are discussed regularly and grow stronger. Everybody is working and receiving awards/raises/accolades. Everyone is trained for using firearms. We are healthy, cohesive, coherent and have never been stronger. Life in this collective of family and friends is FANTASTIC!
We have DEFUNDED socialist collectives, spoken out against BIG GOVERNMENT socialism/totalitarianism and DEPOPULATED socialists/liberals/progressives/liars/deceivers/totalitarians/parasites from our lives and voted against them in our government.
Life, health, liberty, preparedness BUMP!
I no longer go to any movies, they are all leftists in Hollywierd.
I stopped going to a health club a couple of years ago.
I changed jobs last week because I thought Romney would not win, I can make more money at the new job.
Do not keep money in the bank, leave only what you need.
Find a way to disappear for the duration.
I don’t see how what your proposing can be called living. “Hey, General Eisenhower, can we put off this landing? Because it’s kind of dangerous out there.”
I plan on engaging in as little economic activity as possible. If we all do that, maybe we can collapse the People’s Republic of Obamastan.
There is nothing we need to do to “Go Galt”.
God already has that one worked out.
Just make sure your name is written in the book.
Woke up wondering the same thing. I recently enrolled back into school, haven’t started classes yet, and am now considering my options. My husband is in the coal industry and we both know it won’t be long before he is on the unemployment line. Taking on new debt is probably the stupidest thing I can do right now.
My suggestions are to stock up on food, lower any debts you may have at the moment, start or add to a nest egg and perfect your shooting abilities. Avoid unnecessary purchases and take care of your own.
Me? I’m reading. Reading, reading, reading. Learning as much as I can so I am armed with knowledge and guns when it comes time to use them both.
We must now work to make him a lame duck President, investigate all the scandels that surround him and his homo-socialists.
I went Galt a couple of years ago.
Think I’ll drink myself ALMOST to death and then go on disability. Have an acquaintance who did just that and now she makes more than she ever did working. She has better healthcare than I do too - and I pay over $630 a month for mine. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.
I detest what this country has become.
Look, I understand that you feel bad. We have lost a lot. This country is indeed the “United State.” Things are over as we have known them as far as participating in elections. The demographic tip has been reached. The coalition of minorities, freeloaders, parasites, the brainwashed, and full blown communists and socialists has indeed won. They will always win now, under these current conditions.
But don’t give up on God or above all, yourself. Bring yourself to a higher level of understanding, spirituality, and purpose. If tyranny comes in full, so be it, but you can live and love as an example for all who know you. Deal with situations as they occur... Greatness is an exemplary individual trait that can thrive in the darkest of times.
May God bless you and your family. Be strong. Be brave. My best.
Perhaps the time to go Gault is actually upon us.
Get a government job. That will work to bring down the system as well as anything.
Don’t donate to the Red Cross, etc for natural disasters that occur in blue States.
Limit holiday purchases as much as possible. Pack lunches instead of buying fast food. By soda by the 2-liter bottle and use washable water bottles. In general, buy in bulk whenever possible. Another little tip: don’t use a plain soap dish—make sure the soap is somehow elevated so the water drains away (hint: turn the dish upside down). It will last 3x longer.
No spouse, no dependents, no house plants, no pets, no real estate.
A self-contained RV is the ultimate bug-out bag. Got that, too.
Also, lots of cash, gold, beans, bullets and bandaids.
Maintain a low profile, so your neighbors (if you're unlucky enough to have any) don't think they can come and forcibly take your stuff. Nonetheless, establish a defensible perimeter and a plan to deal with an attack.
Realize that the Republican party just committed suicide and is trying to take you with it.
Look for alternatives.
This is a great thread.
I am in health insurance. When Obamacare passed, my was cut by 38%. We laid off half of our field force, 30% of our administrative staff, and around 20% of our management... a total of nearly 4000 people nationally.
When Obamacare is fully instituted on 1/1/14, the brokerage/producer side of the industry will be shut off. That’s close to 425,000 people nationally going from $100K-plus per year to being out of work.
As a result of last night’s election, my wife and I are establishing a strict budget for the first time in our adult professional careers. I will be letting all of my brokerage employees go as of the first of the year, and they will know why: overregulation, overtaxation, and Obamacare. I provide insurance to a large pool of doctors, specialists, and nurses, and roughly 40% of them have announced plans to retire early, practice offshore, or change careers.
I do not recognize this country anymore, and I have no desire to participate in the political or economic processes from this point forward, or at least until we can put together a majority conservative coalition, rather than Socialism Lite.
We’ll be reducing our financial footprint by at least 30%: cable, gym memberships, cell phones, lawn services and family perks like dinner out and traveling across New England to see family. As I will no longer be self-employed, my taxes will be cut by nearly 15%.
God help this country, and help us all.
I’d also add, buy a shortwave radio and police scanner. It would be a good idea to get a CB radio at least, amateur radio is better but it is good to have both. A ham radio license is much easier to get now.
