The 20 Ton Whale

August 29, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “the 800-pound gorilla in the room?” The phrase is usually used to describe some huge problem that no one will talk about.

The video I’ve posted below is not that gorilla. The content of this video is a 20-ton Blue Whale in your back yard kiddie pool. It’s so big that it obliterates and obscures the pool. All you will see is the whale. But it is dying in your back yard, and pretty soon, you’re going to have to do something about a dead whale.

What am I talking about? Simply this. As you watch the snake pit that is the Republican National Convention…and if you watch the Democratic Convention, remember that NEITHER PARTY can balance the Federal budget. They talk about it but THEY ARE ALL LYING.

It’s not that there is no political will to do it. It is fiscally IMPOSSIBLE to fix the Washington budget debacle.

And let me point out some demographic information that directly affects the FACT that it is impossible to ever balance the Federal budget again:

1. Unemployment: REAL unemployment in America is about 22%. You cannot wring taxes out of unemployed people. Besides, most of those people that are unemployed are middle class, and the middle class doesn’t pay income taxes anyway.
2. Missing Americans: The Roe v. Wade decision happened in 1973. Even by the most pro-abortion count from the Guttmacher Institute, over 54 million people were murdered before birth in America over the last 39 years. That is a lot of people not living, and not earning, and not paying their taxes.

Dear Readers, you will be SHOCKED by the TRUTH in this video.

Secession is the only hope for liberty on the North American continent.

The Secession Paradigm

August 27, 2012

by Russell D. Longcore

Secession is the new paradigm for personal liberty and property rights on the North American continent.

In order for secession to be successful, it will require that each of us think on an entirely new level than we have ever thought before. Why? Because living in a 50-state nation is very different from living in a single nation with counties.

Albert Einstein is quoted thus: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “paradigm” (pronounced “pair-a-dime”) as: “a philosophical and theoretical framework of a scientific school or discipline within which theories, laws, and generalizations and the experiments performed in support of them are formulated.”

Secession is a paradigm, a framework within which a group of individuals may band together to work from theory to action to solve the problem of the loss of individual liberty and property rights by “throw(ing) off such government and to provide new Guards for their future security.” (hat tip to Mr. Jefferson)

The very act of secession demands that we stop thinking like Americans and begin thinking like free men and women who will no longer accept a life under tyranny and slavery. Most people either cannot or refuse to embrace the weight and responsibility that accompanies living free. Many have gotten so used to tyranny that all they can comprehend is everyone suffering equally…instead of the equality of liberty.

Folks are going to have to be sick and tired of being sick and tired before they will commit to secession as a solution to their problems. And nothing will be as effective in winning hearts and minds for secession as the collapse of the American economy. Secession will require allegiance to our state, soon to become our new nation. And that commitment will first be exhibited in a commitment to each other as individuals who yearn to be free to govern ourselves as we see fit.

Governing after secession is also a paradigmatic and drastic change from conventional thinking and understanding about governance.

Let’s start thinking together right here…right now…in new ways about self-governance.

1. Personal liberty is greatest where there is the least amount of government. So documents like the Articles of Confederation and the US Constitution are anachronistic and irrelevant for a new nation. Now…happily…excitedly… perhaps we can stop believing that the constitutional republic is the greatest form of human governance. An unrestrained republic is what got America into the shape it’s in right now. Please don’t misunderstand. I’m not suggesting that we have more regulations. Quite the contrary. I am saying that we need LESS GOVERNMENT.

In an article I wrote in 2009, I offer an entirely new form of governance,
The New Corporate Model Of Governance.
Take a look at that article. This form of governance makes sure that every citizen signs a contract with his government instead of having a 230-year-old document that no one alive has ever agreed to.

2. There is no more important issue for a new nation that its money. If a new nation gets the monetary system wrong, the wheels of the nation will fall off eventually. The big money interests and banksters will fight hard to continue the present system of Fractional Reserve Banking (FRB) and fiat money. But that should be enough to prove to you that they are all criminals and counterfeiters. FRB and fiat money must be outlawed from day one in the new nation, and the penalty for FNB or counterfeiting should be death. The new national Constitution must authorize only gold and silver as money, but must stop short of setting its value. The law should authorize the private minting of gold and silver coins for use as money, but that is as far as the law needs to go. Never should the new government have the authority to set the value of money, for the free market will do that very well.

3. Taxation. I propose that the nation have only one source of revenue, and that is the national sales tax. No property taxes, no Value Added Taxes, no tariffs, no ad valorem taxes, no use fees, no income tax, no estate tax, no excise taxes…NO OTHER SOURCE. PERIOD. The government will be very limited in its scope of duties, so I propose that the initial tax national sales tax rate be set at 10%. Remember, under a Corporate Model of Governance, every citizen could vote on every issue, and that would naturally include any tax rate increase or addition of the scope of governance. That also means that the only tax that cities and counties could assess would be a sales tax. The national Constitution should set the maximum rate for city/county sales tax. Then all the various municipalities must live within their means without borrowing. And if the state or other governmental bodies run a surplus in a given year, they issue dividend checks to the citizens.

4. National legislature: Use Texas as a model. The Texas Legislature meets in assembly EVERY OTHER YEAR for about three months. A properly organized new national government won’t have all that much to do. Let the new constitution set the parameters for the schedule of the Legislature. The mere existence of a set number of days in assembly gathered will drastically restrict the mischief they can set in motion.

5. National security: Every able-bodied person between age 18 and 50 will be a militia member. That old US Constitution actually got this right in the Second Amendment. The security of a free state makes it necessary to have a militia, and the militia is not a standing army. It is comprised of free citizens trained and ready to defend their nation. DEFEND…not invade another country.

Think about a nation with no inflation, no out-of control Congressional spending, no fiat money, no army, no Social Security and Medicare, no income tax, no three-letter Federal agencies like EPA, DEA, CIA, HHS, etc., no banksters. Imagine how free that nation would be. Imagine how the wealth of the world would pour into a country with no inflation. Dream of full employment, high wages, high productivity, fierce competition and a high standard of living. All these attributes can exist in a state that secedes from the United States and then forms their new government with individual liberty and property rights as its only reason for existence.

Finally, try to wrap your mind around the truth that when your state secedes, it removes every taxpayer in the seceding state from any and all responsibility for repayment of the US national debt. For Christ’s sake, do you need any more reason to become a secessionist?

Secession is the only hope for humanity. Who will be first?

Secession: Who WILL Be First?

August 25, 2012

by Russell D. Longcore

I’ve been pondering a lot lately about which state it will be that will be the first to secede from the United States of America. For today, let me muse about Texas and Montana.

Texas has a vibrant secessionist organization called the Texas Nationalist Movement. Run by dynamic President Daniel Miller and charismatic Membership Director Cary Wise, they have spread the concept of Texas Independence far and wide in the Lone Star state. The TNM is by far the most well-operated and organized independence movement in the nation, and has touched more lives with the message of regaining personal liberty and nationhood than any other group in North America.

To my knowledge, Montana has no organized secessionist or independence group. So…you may ask…why pick Montana as a potential secession candidate?

Much has been written about The American Redoubt, a Western liberty “reservation” modeled roughly after Galt’s Gulch of the book Atlas Shrugged. The Redoubt could work but it would work best as a new North American nation, not simply a do-over of American government and American culture.

So let’s look at some informal observations about each state.

Distance From DC

Montana is about 1,800 miles from DC. Texas is about 1,500 away from DC. So no clear advantage there. Both are in the West.

Population

Texas has 26,400,000 people that can be counted…probably a lot more. Montana has 998,000. Texas has a long border with Mexico, and lots of illegals enter Texas across that border. Montana has a 500 mile-long border with Canada, and I would guess there are not a lot of naughty Canadians sneaking across the border so they can be Americans.

So, if 25% of Montana’s population became secession supporters, that would be about 250,000 people. If 25% of Texans got religion about secession, that would be 6.6 million. That means that about 20 million people in Texas would remain undecided or unsupportive of secession. My gut tells me that selling secession in Montana would be a lot easier to do.

Attitude

Texans have lots of attitude about their state. Everything’s better and bigger in Texas. The state was born of secession from Mexico, and that victory is still very important to the heritage and pride of Texans. But in a state of over 26 million people, there are lots of non-Texans who don’t share that Texas spirit.

Montanans have attitude also, and much of that attitude is found in the phrase “leave me alone.” That should not be confused with unfriendliness. I dare you to find a Montanan who is not friendly. The Montanans I’ve met are Montanans first, then US citizens second. They are fiercely independent and most would be willing to fight for their liberty.

Logistics

Texas has a shoreline on the Gulf of Mexico with many ports and an international border with Mexico. Montana is landlocked, with its northern border an international border with Canada.

Liveability

Liveability simply means that when the American economy collapses, where will it be easier to survive?

Texas has about any kind of terrain you could ask for. The piney woods of east Texas, the flatlands of the Panhandle, the hill country of SW Texas, the low country and shoreline of the Coast all have their charm. Texas has a nearly year-round growing season. However, Texas does not have the fresh water resources of Montana. Thank God for the big aquifers like the Edwards. The Texas economy is a growing and thriving. And don’t forget about its petroleum and natural gas resources. Texas will have no problem whatsoever existing successfully as a nation after secession.

Montana has the spectacular beauty of the Rocky Mountains, rolling plains, hills and valleys, even glaciers. The growing season in Montana is short, beginning in late spring and ending in early fall. But there is plenty of fresh water. They do not have the petro resources of Texas, and would have to import most of their needs.

Texas’ year-round climate is much more survivable than Montana’s climate. If you had to live in a tent in February, where would you rather be, Kalispell or San Antonio?

Federal Land

Montana has 30% of its land mass in Federal ownership. In 2011, the legislature considered SB254, which would have given Montana the authority to use eminent domain to take back federal land. The bill went nowhere.

Texas has only 1.9% of its land in Federal hands. Look at to see who owns the West.

So, it looks like it would be a lot easier to throw the Federal government out of Texas than Montana. But wait a minute.

Military Bases

Texas has 15 military bases on its soil. Montana has one small Air Force base. So, if DC wants to play rough in a secession scenario, Montana may have an advantage.

I am sure that there are other criteria that you can suggest that give one or the other an advantage in secession. But at this time, I still believe that Texas has the best chance of being the first state to secede from the United States of America.

Next time, we will look at Alaska and Hawaii.

Secession is the hope for humanity. Who will be first?

The Last Election

August 16, 2012

by Russell D. Longcore

This will probably be a short article. It’s my November Presidential election prediction. I figure I should do it now so I’ll either look smart if I’m right or you’ll forget what I said three months back and not think ill of me.

I believe that this is the last Presidential election that will occur before the American economy melts down, causing most of the world economy to collapse also.

What will be the cause of the collapse? The dollar will be supplanted as the world reserve currency. The BRICS nations are already working toward this goal. The Chinese renmimbi will likely be the next world reserve currency.

There is nothing that any politician in Washington can do to avert this economic train wreck. The collapse is inevitable, the time table is the only variable.

The globalist bankster puppet Barack Obama, like the presidential puppets that preceded him, has kept the United States in constant warfare since the US invaded Kuwait. Most recently, the US invaded Libya and Iraq, nations whose leaders had already announced their intentions to accept gold or gold-backed money as payment for oil. And now Iran is in Washington’s gunsights. Iran has been accepting gold for oil. That places the US Dollar in imminent danger of becoming irrelevant.

DC cannot allow this to happen.

Of course, you and I both know that the world’s biggest debtor nation will not call the tune for the world’s creditor nations. The Dollar will collapse soon, and China will surge into world leadership with their gold-backed currency.

The president who sits in the Oval Office at that time will have the collapse of the United States economy as his presidential legacy.

So, who will be that seated president?

Here is my prediction. Mittens Romney will be that president.

I predict that Obama will be swept from office in November in a crushing landslide. If Obama carries five states, I will be shocked.

You see, for the globalists and banksters, this is a toss-up. Obama is already their sock puppet, and Romney/Ryan are two more sock puppets cut from the same cloth. They are sociopathic criminals who have proven WITH THEIR ACTIONS that they are big-government cheerleaders. They all like taxation, war, and Federal debt.

So why will Romney win? Because he is NOT OBAMA.

This Presidential election will be about the economy. Obama has helped wreck the American economy and the world economy. With unemployment higher now than when he took office four years ago, there is no chance in Hell that America will give him another four years.

Romney/Ryan keep talking about giving the American voters a “real choice” in November…as if their brand of “conservatism” is substantively different from the Democrats. It is not.

The American media also has a job in this presidential season. That job is to obfuscate and entertain, and keep this presidential election looking like a real race. I would encourage readers to reject ALL polling as manufactured news and lies.

Both sides, Republican and Democrat, will try to steal this election through voting fraud with the infamous electronic voting machines. But I believe that their efforts will fail because of the overwhelming vote against Obama.

I am convinced that this election will be the most one-sided, lopsided, crushing electoral victory in the history of the nation. Obama will be humiliated, and will go into the history books as the nation’s worst president.

Once the voting is done, and Romney/Ryan see their “mandate,” they will move forward with their agenda, which is basically the same agenda as their predecessors.

But mark my words, Dear Readers. Romney in an historic landslide.

Of course…I could be wrong. It’s happened before.

Secession is the hope for humanity. Who will be first?

Why Do We Obey?

August 13, 2012

by Eric Peters
EricPetersAutos.com

Editor’s Note: The same level of mind-numbed obedience found in most people today can be used to the benefit of secessionists. Once the American economy goes in the tank, and people get hungry, the people will be much easier to lead. Cynical? Sure. But pragmatic too.

If some random guy ordered you to submit to his will – or else – most of us would at least consider it assault. Many of us would try to escape – or defend ourselves. Very few would quietly submit. And almost no one would submit willingly.

But when exactly the same thing is done to us by a person wearing a uniform, most of us not only submit and obey – we do so without even questioning the rightness of the thing.

The uniform – and other totems of officialized authority – confer legitimacy upon the illegitimate. It is a startling thing. It reveals that most people are incapable of grasping the concept of a moral principle – that something which is wrong when committed by an unsanctioned individual is just as wrong when committed by a sanctioned individual – or a group of them.

If it is wrong to kill, then it is always wrong to kill. If it is wrong to steal, then it is always wrong to steal. Neither killing no theft nor any other intrinsically wrong act becomes not-wrong because it’s sanctioned, approved or euphemized by the state, or by a politician, or by a bureaucracy. Stalin reportedly once said that a single death is a tragedy, but a million deaths a statistic. Nothing could be further from the truth. A million single deaths is an atrocity – as much as a single individual death is a tragedy. And you are no less the victim of theft if the theft is done by a collective or its purported agent – under color of law, or via the ballot box.

Theft is theft. The essential nature of the thing is not altered by how it is done – or by whom.

There may be shades of grey in many aspects of life – but not when it comes to questions of basic morality. Your life is yours – and it follows that you are entitled by right to be at liberty. Else your life is not yours, but rather the chattel property of someone else – to whatever extent that other person (or persons) exercises control over your life, and against your will.

Similarly, it follows that if you own your life, then you also own the fruits of the labor of your body and mind, of that which is you. To say that random others – what collectivist psychopaths refer to as “society” – have a moral claim to the fruits of your labor is merely another way of saying you are owned, wholly or in part, to the extent you are forced by threat of violence to hand over the fruits of your body and of your mind. You are either free – or you are slightly more (or less) enslaved.

There is no in-between. It is impossible – a contradiction in terms.

A free man is beholden to none – except those he freely chooses to be beholden to. An enslaved man has no such free choice. He is beholden to whomever “society” – that is, to whomever wields political power over him – decrees. At best, he may plead to be slightly less enslaved, or to have the fruits of the labor of his body and mind forcibly distributed against his will to random strangers or groups of them, or projects or causes, he finds somewhat less disagreeable. But he cannot refuse; he is not permitted to say no. He is bound by a “social contract” he never signed, by consent he never gave. By debts and obligations assumed on his behalf by people he has never met, much less entrusted with proxy power.

In a word, he is a slave. The question is merely of the degree to which he is enslaved – and to what extent he is aware of his condition.

The system we have – that we suffer daily – cannot permit people to think along such lines, of course – because it would be its undoing.

Instead, people are conditioned – from infancy and not just by the state, but by everything all around them – to accept that the immoral can be transmuted into the moral via the miracle of group assent, or the fiction thereof. That murder and theft are not merely permissible but acceptable when they are performed by people wearing special outfits, who have been anointed in some way by a group.

In this way, the outrageous becomes all right. Most men worthy of the title would tell another man to go pound sand if he told them to “buckle up for safety.” And they’d punch him in the nose if he pursued the issue. But when the order-barker is wearing a uniform, most men’s testicles seem to shrivel – and they submit and obey. They quail before The Law. They do as they are told. But that is understandable. When one is facing an armed opponent – one armed with an army – it is foolish bravado to do other than submit and obey.

What is troubling is their acceptance of servility – of the implicit rightness (alleged) of what is done to them. And – much worse – of what they often do to one another. Rather than see the thing clearly, for what it is – and rebel in mind and spirit at least – the representative specimen will not only agree that it is all right – he will often insist the same (and worse) things be done to his fellow man. He is told what to do, therefore he will tell others what to do. His life is not his own, therefore, he will make damn sure no one else’s life is their own, either. He is forced to hand over his property, the fruit of the labor of his body and mind? Damn straight others will, too.

The great tragedy of our time is not that human liberty is dying. It is that so many of us are willing accomplices in its murder. All too many fail to chafe at what is being to others because they fail to grasp that it is thereby done to them as well. Or will be, in time. That it is our mutual interest as human beings to defend human liberty, everywhere and always.

Freedom is in fact free. It is collectivism – authoritarianism – whose costs are incalculable.

Ammo: Isn’t It Obvious?

August 10, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

America has suffered a recent spate of attacks by armed gunmen. Back in 2009, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 soldiers on base at Fort Hood, Texas. Of late there is Jared Loughner, who shot and killed 6 in Arizona, and wounded 12, most notably a sitting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Then there were the 12 Aurora murders allegedly perpetrated by James Holmes in a crowded theater. In Wisconsin, a man entered a Sikh temple and killed six worshippers.

I’m not willing to say that any of these murderous incidents had any connection to each other. I do find it interesting that Major Hasan was a psychiatrist, and Holmes in Colorado was studying to be a mental health professional. Reasonable minds would have concluded that people trained in mental health would not commit multiple murders.

I could write an article about each of the incidents…the details are of little importance to this article. What is important is that in each incident, the gunman wielded weapons that use high-capacity magazines…weapons that are considered military-like, or “assault” weapons.

No six-shot revolvers used in mass shootings. Gunmen are smarter than that.

Gun control in America is for practical purposes a non-issue. Sure, there are little incremental laws and regulations passed around the country that chip away at the right of individuals to keep and bear arms. But there are still a couple hundred million firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens in America. And confiscation of legally owned weapons just ain’t gonna happen.

But it doesn’t need to happen for the globalists, liberals and Washington devotees to win.

Question: What is a gun without ammunition?
Answer: (a) a club
(b) a nice piece of industrial art
(c) a black marketer’s wet dream
(d) all of the above

I’d recommend that you choose D.

Actually, I cannot believe that the gun-haters haven’t gone after ammunition more fiercely over the years. But you and I can still walk into millions of stores and buy ammo. Hell, we can even buy it out of catalogs and on the Internet and have it shipped to us directly.

I realize I am not telling you anything you don’t know. But isn’t it obvious that the Washington crowd is going to try to restrict ownership of high-cap mags and ammo…NEXT?

This week, Democrats in Congress have proffered legislation to restrict the purchase of high-cap mags. New Jersey senator Frank Lautenburg, a longtime gun banner, attached an amendment to a bill before the Senate, amid howls from both sides who want the underlying bill passed. Ain’t it just like DC to think that more laws will solve the problem.

But all the guns, ammo and magazines used in all these murders were purchased LEGALLY. And bad guys who are of a mind to murder with a gun are not prevented by gun laws.

This issue is yet another example of arranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The hue and cry, in Washington, on the various media outlets, and around the office water cooler is meant to obfuscate and mask the foundational issue. Getting people to focus on peripheral issues that don’t mean anything results in millions of eyes diverted from what really matters.

What really matters? Individual liberty and property rights.

I urge you to read two other articles I wrote Gun Control And The Well-Regulated Militia.Then go even deeper into individual liberty and property rights by reading What Are Unalienable Rights?

Bottom line of this article is simply this: The Federal Government of the United States of America is a cancer growing on all of us. There is not one second of your flippin’ life that is not regulated in some way by Washington. All cancers place survival as their Number One goal. And all cancers will continue to survive and grow until they kill their host.

Your choice is to either cut off the cancer or die from the disease.

There is only one way for individuals and groups of individuals to get cancer-free. That is secession. A group of people somewhere in America must make a decision that their own survival as a people is more important than Washington’s survival. They must separate themselves from the United States and become a sovereign nation. Secessionists do not advocate or promote the overthrow of the US Federal Government in any way. They simply seek to break the ties that bind them to DC and seek their own futures and destinies.

American States MUST choose Secession or forever forsake Liberty in North America. We started as thirteen sovereign nations…AFTER WE SECEDED. States MUST return to sovereignty or be counted as cowards and criminals who have sided with the tyrant to enslave the people.

Do you want the liberty to own any sort of firearm you choose? Your only choice for that level of freedom is found in secession.

Secession is the ONLY Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?

It’s Secession or Civil War. You Choose. There Is No Third Choice.

DumpDC Is Back!!

DumpDC: Now More Than Ever

By Russell D. Longcore

I’m back, Friends.

I really thought that I could just concentrate on building my business and not write about secession. But apparently I cannot. The stakes are far too high, and I have a wife, three grown children and three grandchildren.

You may thank the Irish philosopher Edmund Burke for my return to these pages. He is principally revered for his support of the American Revolution…the first act of secession on the North American continent. And from this day forward, DumpDC adds Edmund Burke to our Hall of Fame, along side Lysander Spooner and Thomas Paine.

This article is a sampler of Burke quotes, and what they will mean to us in the coming days.

We begin with Burke’s most often quoted line: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

As I come back to DumpDC, I find that my position about secession has hardened. Look at the top of this page. The sub-title now says: “It’s Secession Or Civil War. Choose One. There Is No Third Choice.”

Will this make me popular? Likely not. I did not start DumpDC three years ago to be popular. I am not looking for big numbers so I can advertise on every square inch of white space on the website. I am interested in changing hearts and minds about secession.

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”

Going forward, be prepared to read secession articles that are decidedly more strident and aggressive about secession. Why? Because I see an ever-increasing commitment to lost causes in the Patriot blogs. (St. Jude, you’re needed once again.) It seems that they have been brainwashed into the acceptance of a 50-state nation as the only political entity that deserves to exist south of the Canadian border. It’s almost as if some of my friends say, “Other than secession, what can we do to regain liberty? I know! Let’s force Washington to obey the Constitution! We’ll sic the Tenth Amendment on them!”

Today’s Patriot seems to embrace the plan with no hope of success whatsoever (restoring the USA), with the highest probability of failure (somehow forcing Washington to obey the Constitution), and the highest probability of armed conflict and/or civil war (prepping for economic collapse with DC still in charge).

That dog won’t hunt.

DC politicos are not going to recognize ANY restriction on their power to tax, borrow and spend. “But what about the new Tea Party members?” you may ask. When a new Congress member gets to Washington, he or she is absorbed into the system.

“Ambition can creep as well as soar.”

Within weeks or months, that new Congress member is raising money for his re-election campaign. All the while that new member tells his constituency how he or she is there to serve them, and that their votes count.

“You will smile here at the consistency of those democratists who, when they are not on their guard, treat the humbler part of the community with the greatest contempt, whilst, at the same time they pretend to make them the depositories of all power.”

When is the last time you heard anyone in Washington…Republican, Democrat or Independent…seriously discuss spending only what DC takes in by taxation? Or talk about shrinking the Federal government? Or stop borrowing money?

“Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites…in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.”

Today’s politicians do not desire liberty. They thirst after power and privilege. They are sociopathic personalities who wish to rule over others. And those who love individual liberty and property rights must not make deals with sociopaths. We must DEFEAT THEM.

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”

I have heard the leaders of some well-known state independence movements say that they are dedicated to the legal, lawful separation of their state from the US Federal Government. Those are mighty fine-sounding words. But the Declaration of Independence was not lawful in King George’s mind. The Signers knew that they were pledging “their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.” The also knew that they were going to be hunted by Redcoats. The states of the Confederacy in the early 1860s saw war on the horizon when they seceded. Apparently, Lincoln didn’t consider their secession lawful either, and 600,000 men died in that “recent unpleasantness.”

My point? Washington may not consider an Ordinance of Secession legal. Secession is playing for keeps. Secession can be bloody business. Promoting state independence and secession might cost you your life, your property, your family and land you in a Federal prison. Should that prevent you from being dedicated to state independence and state nationhood? WILL that prevent you from working for liberty through secession?

“No power so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.”

Is your Editor scared? Hell yes, I’m scared. But not of dying. We are all dead men walking. Everybody dies. But fear is tomorrow. Live in the eternal now and escape fear.

“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”

Pragmatism REQUIRES secession. Which government is more manageable, a small one or a large one? Which is more effective…scattered Patriots defending their little patch of ground, or state militias in large numbers? Which is more likely…local cops taking orders from Feds, or local cops fighting AGAINST Feds after their state secedes? Which is more probable…Federal troops invading your seceded state, or Federal troops refusing to shoot other Americans?

Secessionists MUST band together if they truly love liberty. Liberty is dead and buried in the United States of America. Federal control of everything will continue to creep and grow like a brain tumor, until it kills the host.

There is only ONE WAY to stop Washington…Secession.

It is my strong belief that secession in America will be met in Washington with the same benign acceptance as happened in Moscow in 1989. I believe that in the likely scenario of economic collapse and riots in cities…while DC is still in charge…Federal troops will be widely used. However, I do not believe that this will occur as a response to secession. Politicians are politicians. If DC looks at the numbers of people in any given state that support secession, they will capitulate.

I would rather see any American state secede before the inevitable economic collapse that is on our horizon. But is it pragmatic? Will the state legislatures, which are the farm teams for Congress, suddenly find the courage and bravery to unite against Washington to save their own states? I would love to see it, but I doubt that it will happen that way.

The more likely scenario is that the Dollar will collapse, hyperinflation or deflation will happen overnight, paper money will become nearly worthless, and the first food riots will occur within hours. Violent crime will explode, and the cities will burn from coast to coast. Washington will be unable to deal with nationwide chaos. Happily, there simply are not enough warm bodies in all branches of the military combined to control all the chaos in fifty states simultaneously. And, if the Dollar has collapsed, DC will have a tough time paying its soldiers. Further, military desertion will decimate the forces, as military personnel run for home to care for their own families. So, the states will secede from the United States to seek their own fortunes and destinies.

The mightiest nation to ever exist on planet Earth will die with a whimper, just like the USSR did. And SOME states will become new nations and change history forever.

Dear Readers, the time to work for independence and your status as a new nation is NOW. And you can begin simply by talking about secession with anybody that will stand still long enough for you to start a conversation with them. For the ones that are interested, send them to this website for more information. Most people won’t get it. Most people won’t join you. Some will be hostile. You might get called un-American or a Commie. But your job is to be a seed planter, not the harvester. We are a long way from harvest time.

“Our patience will achieve more than our force.”

Never give up. Never quit. Secession is GOING to happen, sooner or later.

“Never despair, but if you do, work on in despair.”

Think. Use your brain. Do not let anyone tell you how to think. Question ALL authority. Free Your Mind.

Secession is the only hope for humanity. Who will be first?
