Sounds terrific, as is Clay County FL, just south of Duval County/Jacksonville. The difference is, ocean access for escape pods. Otherwise, I’d probably head to Texas.
Didn’t you warn me about escape-podding this morning?
I spent the afternoon hauling about 300# of batteries out to the pod today.
do have some good news. It appears that the left is not choosing to kill its enemies, at least not yet. I hope they continue to remain nonviolent. If they have studied Gramsci well, they probably will remain nonviolent. Political force is ultimately self-defeating.
My cursory knowledge of history tells me that when commies/muzzies gain power, they do indeed kill the "enemy". Either wholesale or whoever pops his head up and clings to something that is non-Koran, a fire arm, non-commie a**ksing opinion, their own children, their private property, etc. So the "so far they're aren't killing us yet" statement hinges on the "yet". And if you read Nachum's Dead Pool, there are a fair number of bodies already, just not en masse at this point. I think it a vain hope to hope that our lives and property will not be taken from us.
If that remains the case, we can still pursue our lives. We can raise our children, marry, laugh, love and honor our God, and enjoy and build the best life we can, albeit at a lower standard of living than we have had. I recommend that, while still searching for a solution to these issues, each and every one of you do this very thing. We have no control over the nation, ultimately (though we can impart our small spin) so enjoy your life to the fullest!
I think you need to remove your rosy colored glasses. They are just getting started. Just now accelerating. Home schooling, any opposition to any jot and tittle of their noxious pro-muzzie, commie, hate whitey, fag luving agenda will be verboten in the near future - IF no serious opposition stands up against them. There's so much in the wings - stuff like mandatory mental health screening (with mandatory "treatment" if you're nuts enough to not swallow their toxic evil swill), children are not OURS but the property of the state to be raised as THEY say, not us; churches and any houses of worship not allowing fag marriage and Koran reading will be taxed or closed, guns and ammo HA HA HA HA HA, property and other taxes skyrocketing so we are forced out of our homes, affirmative action on steroids and testing political, social and religious views to see if we qualify to get jobs/health care/food/a place to live/air to breathe/keep our children, etc. These are just a few off the top of my head.
And any more "elections"? Give me a freaking break. What we had was not an election. Either the Rs in Congress find strong principles and courage, or state governors and legislatures do (or both), or the mil somehow decides they've had enough, or millions of people go to DC and campout with torches and pitchforks, or:
Ravines, death camps, and re-education camps and mass extermination. I don't know why you think they'll allow us to live our private lives in peace. Hell, they already don't.
I switched my voter registration to Independent. I don't care if they get the message or not, I just couldn't stomach being associated with so much breath-taking stupidity. I believe the GOP is well on its way to Whig status now.
I don’t have a Gaw damned thing to work with. If unrest comes, and we both survive it, let’s try to link up again. You should be easier to find than me, you are a well-known author.
Love ya, Matt...
That indeed is the solution. No need to re-invent the wheel.
I think Texas and Oklahoma would make a great start for a new republic. Of course, we’d have to let the leeches in the big cities move to Chicago and NYC.
I agree with your comments.
The Gods of the Copybook Headings
AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.
We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.
We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.
With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
Add me to your ping list. Come on down to Texas. I got out of Austin, despite the screenname. I am also researching Panama.
“You may not be interested in war, but war is very interested in you.”
Trotsky, about the Russian Civil War circa 1920.
That statement is like a sharp dagger hitting its mark.
Thanks for the ping, lj. I read down to MM’s post and saw this: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
There’s the answer.
Great post, Laz. Will finish reading it later.
It’ll take about 2 decades to undue the crap established by the jackass and his commie ilk.
I for one will fight on regardless of any one’s despair.
We are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
ESAD, ya’ commie mofus!
Thank you for sharing your insights, dear Laz!
Where’s Rage Monkey?
We have a family business selling flags...
We aren't an organization, but the proceeds definitely go for good. ;-)
FReep mail me if you're interested...and to get a discount of course.
Irenic, I like how you think.
We need to disavow the mold of the “conservative” establishment who signed on with Bush lackey faux conservatives like Mitch Daniels, Krispy Kreme, (Romney?) etc. to run interference. The Bush people were setting up already during this past primary. Jeb feared the incumbent Barry plus it was “too soon for another Bush.”
For all we know the Bushes threw Florida to set up Jeb 2016. Remember me and keep in touch as you wish: you are very perceptive.
Hopeful thread over here discussing Texas secession:
Lots of good ideas, action items, and scenarios.
Oh there’s fates far worse than death in store for those involved in attempting to destroy my country. Petty violence is going to be the least of their worries. There’s more than one way to land a sucker punch, and make it really, really hurt.
Good post. Thanks! I intend to make the best of it all no matter what.
Still, I have an idea I haven’t heard elsewhere. Shall we noodle on this one?
What if freepers, then tea party, then mainstream conservatives all physically moved to a single geographic area?
States are geographic territories that seem to (somewhat randomly) collect people of similar mindsets and culture, depending on a variety of factors. The culture then becomes self-reinforcing.
What if conservatives FOCUSED by taking over a single state?
I believe the political power would focus naturally because politics are local.
That state could become a powerhouse of businesses and technology, differentiating itself strongly from the distributed “takers.” That state would naturally develop leadership and culture based on freedom and individual responsibility. Laws would naturally trend to supporting the individual and not the collective.
The founders took it as granted that power lay within the states, not the fed. States’ rights produce a free market for political and legal structures, resulting in free citizens voting with their feet.
That state could become strong enough to tell the fed to take a hike. Hopefully, secession could be avoided by showing other states how to get back on the path.
Just a pregnant idea, but I think it’s worth some discussion.
Is this feasible? Or do you suppose that our clan is too attached to local life, beer, and football to make “a move” like this?
I agree, just need to make sure we have strict immigration policy, NO LIBERALS ADMITTED!
