I have the same goal. To shrivel away and not participate ion this economy to any greater extent than is absolutely necessary. Because obamas plans absolutely depend on citizens creating wealth that can be redistributed. That means our buying stuff that creates jobs for the mouth breathers who voted for obama, or for some peasant in China or Guatemala.
I suppose we can start with Christmas. What if Christians just STOPPED giving material things? Would our presence then be known by those who hold us in such contempt?
I can tell you that Hollywood gets not a red cent from me. I love movies but. Tom Hanks et al will have to pay their bills from royalties on the occasional DVD or rental flick.
infact, buying most things slightly used would not only save money, but cost the big timers profit...boo hoo
You pose some interesting options silverleaf. Had another discussion with a good friend yesterday before the results were known. It centered around incentive, the driving force in a free market economy vs lack of incentive in the socialist or spread the wealth economy. When govt takes from the producer and gives to the non producer, it only takes one harvest for the producer to get the hint, that the only way things are going to be fair, is for him to stop producing.
If there is any industry that deserves to reap the harvest of lawlessness from the seeds it's sown, that's the one.
