Finding our “Galt’s Gulch” will not involve any kind of frontier land, unless we ALL move to Patagonia.
Patagonia is about the only place left. If we all moved down there, we could just “invade”. Settle down, build simple shelters, and within 3 generations have manufacturing setup. We can ship our things down there, including things that other countries might not want to see (Medicines and firearms)
I’m not in the mood for it. America is my home, and it was doing just fine before the liberal mindset and socialist pigs got ahold of it. I have no problem defending the United States of America, because it is here, and I am here.
A few people have stated a good idea: Zero in on the red states. The electoral map has shown us where our kind for many, many years now. These areas have enough to survive (It’ll be hard at first, no one claimed it wouldn’t be) but the blood-shed against any fellow countryman would be minimal.
I live in PA. PA Has no ports (Except a small frontage-feet in Erie) and would have to deal with Eastern states to get any kind of shipped supplies from overseas. But PA also has a natural resource to use for leverage - Its natural gas. I believe that a seperated PA could certainly trade it’s way through the tough times with what is essentially “enemy states”.
And make no mistake. We have Enemy States even at this point. Being from an Enemy state, I have seen how their corruption and socialist leanings have managed to destroy any part of being an american that the populace has.
I went Galt.
I moved from CT, where I was “sufficiently” employed, working my tail off. I managed to make that work mostly “work at home” type of stuff, and picked up everything and moved. Now in this town I am making contacts with local business owners, banks and citizens to assemble some sort of foundation for “post apocalyptic” trade and society. But already the farms are closing up, the land is going to weeds, and people are lined up at food banks to feed their family and themselves. Very depressing.
I am offering my services throughout town, to all and any local business and home to do whatever I can do. From fix cars to fix computers and complex systems. I’ll fix tractors, and I tell everyone around here that I will.
In order for this to be successful, we need to center in on a dollar, or a currency. Barter simply doesn’t work when there is any kind of currency in the area. Again - If currency exists - Barter will only get you so far.
A long time ago the US had mints setup throughout the land. It was easier to setup a printing press, with a gold vault in the basement, than it was to ship currency to outlying lands. These printing presses and vaults are still here. If the town were to keep their wealth in a local bank, that practices judeo-christian banking practices, the town would have the ability to print it’s own regional money. Through agreements and inspections with neighboring towns, those towns could trade their currency, and the currency spreads. Basically, the whole system resets.
This is a very important contention of mine with the latest “fiscal cliff” and “dollar collapse” conversation. If the dollars collapse, there is going to be a tidal wave of foreign currency flowing into the country. We CAN NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.
Currency is a measure of your self-worth. As a person, I work hard, maintain clean living and help others around me. I AM WORTH MORE than a 22 year old pensioner that frequents the methadone clinic in London. It’s true. I’m better than he. And as a civilization, Conservatives ARE BETTER THAN liberals. We are worth more.
To take part in their currency would damage us worse than any salvo of gunfire. Worse than any invasion. If the EURO takes foothold in America, our value as people is destroyed. We will get lumped in with everyone else. Happened in Europe, it will happen here. It is designed to work like that.
We MUST. I can not stress this enough, we MUST focus on rebuilding a currency after this one falls. We have no time to prepare, it’s right around the corner. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy at this point. we MUST localize currency and return to our worth on the world scale.
According to the greenies, I (as an american) require 25 or so “eco-slaves” (or whatever they call it) and they want to end that. They want to end my position in the world. No. No no no no .. I’m worth 25 indo-chinese and african terrorist / muslim soccer players because I am simply better than they are.
And you all are too.
I think our future is similar to the USSR. They simply went out of business and the power reverted back to the satellite countries. It appears to have made a difference what country you lived in. All survived but it was harder in some countries. I visited Mongolia after the fact, it was like the frontier, they had to reinvent everything and were discovering their past which as been repressed for 90 years.
Strange thing, I am actually encouraged by the possible demise of the USA because I don't think we can fix it.(but I am willing to be proven wrong)
