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!
