Of course we will want to be as self sufficient as possible...storing extra food is good. Growing your own food and then preserving it is better. Reducing our economic footprint is something we can do to deprive the left with the means to support their government. That may look like retiring early, or going self sufficient.
It is illegal to “go underground” by dealing in trade with barter or cash that deprives the government of tax revenue. But, it is not illegal to choose to do business with like minded folks rather than those on the left. We do not have to buy products from companies who are unionized...we can buy used cars for instance or Toyota, etc. We don’t 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.
I fear for our churches who soon will be forced to perform gay marriages, provide contraception and possibly even abortions at religious health care facilities. I am not sure how defiant they will be able to be...I am with them first and foremost.
I would recommend changing your lifestyle to as healthy of one that you can...health care is going to change and the thought of relying on socialized medicine, especially for conservative Christians, is not attractive. They will use the health care system as part of their reward/punishment strategy to grow their power over us. So, living a healthy lifestyle can help to diminish our reliance on that system.
For myself, I am considering liquidating my assets and company and relocating either to a state like Texas or Utah or perhaps to another country. We used to be able to say that no matter which party was in power we still lived in America...I don’t think that holds true any longer...we live in a much different world today...it isn’t based upon ideals of individual freedom, religious freedom, or moral decency. It is based upon greed for the property of the productive, it is based upon raw power over the people. So, I am thinking that perhaps it is time to look elsewhere...not sure yet. Maybe a non-violent effort, I am thinking Poland in the 80’s, to overthrow this government can work. The problem is, over the next few days and weeks so many who are conservative will adjust to this new nation and not be willing to risk financially much less with their lives to restore freedom. Most of us will just want to do the “best we can” within the framework of whatever the democrats make for us.
So, this morning is a bleak morning...I am very open to constructive ideas...
“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?
It takes two to catch me, cause I'm gunna deny it.
