One of our fine LCs — HempRopeAndStreetlight drops a righteous rant on our heads in my previous post that is waaaaay too awesome not to give it a post all it’s own. Take it away my friend.
What in the hell is stopping you? light it up and see how far you get and how much propagandist and actual damage you do to the rest of us by your fool actions…I’ve said it before here, and have debated some of the more vocal hotheads here about it,
Here be my opinion, based on a lifetime wasted trying to “fix the system from within – and failing:”
There is no political solution to any of this. The system itself, the bureaucratic machine, unaccountable in any election, is the real enemy. Not Juggears, not McWeenie, not the sycophantic dick-suckers in the media. They are symptoms of the disease. This labyrinthine “system” is the true plague, and it has been crafted to operate and push the statist agenda regardless of which temporary political muppet stands as the figurehead.
No, King Barry didn’t tell the IRS to go after the Tea Party. The IRS is a federal appendage attaching threats to itself by reflex. The same with the FBI, TSA, and NSA. Nobody has to tell them to spy on or harass their foes. They automatically abuse their positions and authority to destroy, malign, and marginalize any “legitimate” dangers to their entrenchment.
In political terms, this “Leviathan” is for all intents and purposes untouchable – short of a complete socioeconomic collapse of our society. No politician -or even coalition of politicians – has the power to do away with them, and this is by deliberate design. The beast is so entrenched in public, private, and corporate America – and has bribed the willing support of so much of the sheeple and crony corporatists – that, to be blunt, any talk of somehow trimming it down is fiction. It’s a pleasant flight of fancy to be sure, and boy it sure would be great if liberty foolishly tossed aside could be won so effortlessly.
History teaches us a different lesson on the subject however.
That being said, there are “solutions” that don’t involve screaming “wolverines” at the top of one’s lungs, and charging down a Bradley with your trusty AR. That’s plain and simple suicide. As is bunkering down and trying to mount any sort of defensive action. The Dividians and Weaver can tell you what to expect from that outcome. That’s not to say a fella needs to sit back and continually eat mouthfuls of shit – but you have to be crafty, especially right now.
Will it come to open warfare? Eventually, yes, I believe we will end up with a shooting war. But the stage has to be properly set first. As our founders well understood, it’s not just a fight, it’s a theatrical production. As such, there are steps that need to be taken first. Proper preparation prevents piss poor performance – and terrible box-office recipts.
Please refer to my “getting-starting” guide HERE: http://nicedoggie.net/?p=9428#comment-43193
Will there be a fight? Yeah. Will it be pretty? No. Is right now the time to start hanging them? No – Not unless you’re double 100% (x10) sure you’re able to get away with it.
Right now is the time for preparing the axillary, putting away supplies, rabble rousing, propaganda, and using the instrumentality of the system to damage the system. It’s time for reconnaissance. It’s when we should be getting in the best shape we can given our age. It’s time for learning – everything from medicine to demolition to car repair. As Heinlin said – specialization is for insects. Get the 4th box battle-ready – but realize that all military weapons have a role, a time, and a place for their proper application. (Proper tool for the proper job at the proper moment).
It is my fervent belief, based on a lifetime of empirical evidence, that we can’t use the ballot box to fix this rotting carcase. This is not to say elections serve no purpose to the liberty minded soul in a lawless Banana Republic. We can use it to further de-legitimize the system – by electing baffoons, charlatans, and idiots.
Well… to be honest, not much really needs to be done on that front… a quick perusal of the Washington D.C. political class reveals that the American Public has been doing a fine job of that.
Don’t think how you are going to die gloriously to a stack at your door right now. Such a notion is the entirely wrong mindset. Start small, start with your immediate surroundings, and grow from there:
Carefully consider everything you’d need care for your family if the infrastructure in this nation takes a shit. Don’t assume you’ll get water if you turn on the facet, power when you flip on the lights, or gas when you trip the furnace/stove. Think about how you can cope without toilets in a sustainable and comfortable way. Then act on those plans. You can’t pursue revolutionary goals if you can’t first deal with your loved one’s daily living.
Once you have those needs taken care of, start moving outside your blood circle. Networking with friends and acquaintances that have useful skills. Not just military knowledge – electricians, carpenters, plumbers, metal-workers, glass men, farmers, ranchers. You need to start going AROUND the government and it’s goons. Stop using them as an intermediary. (And given the state of affairs, the large companies ad FedGovCo are one in the same).
Barter with these folks where possible – you hurt Fedgov on both sides of the transaction, and right now, our weapons are NOT 5.56, but greenbacks, skirting laws and tax evasion. Form good relationships with the people that keep things running folks – not only do you learn a great deal of useful intelligence, you are making friends who when “scofflaw turns to insurgent” might be inclined to play a role in the axillary.
Get your kids the fuck out of public school. And have lots of ‘em while you’re at it. The future belongs to those who breed – why do you think the statists want to flood America with Mexicans? They squirt out kids and they love them some Behemoth, that’s why.
Remember – the pro-government white base is too fucked up and selfish to even bother replacing itself. Their black base is largely stagnant too thanks to it aborting nearly 1/3 of it’s babies. They need younglings raised by folks of their mindset – as I said earlier – IT’S TIME TO FUCK FOR FREEDOM folks.
Yeah kids are expensive, and I ain’t one to talk, given my horrible child-less divorce 34 years ago, but if you’re not an old broken down man like me with a face made for radio, and you can still cook a few buns, get those ovaries and testicles into working order again! Every God-fearing constitutional conservative baby born into a good Christian household makes Overlord Obama and his evil puppet masters cry.
My Nephews and Nieces are doing it right. Oldest has 3 and is trying for 4. Youngest just got hitched over the summer, and already has freedom fighter #1 cooking. Middle niece has 2 already, with no signs of slowing down. I will do my part and see to it those kids have the best home and private schooling money can buy.
Government school is parental malpractice.
So then, no, don’t be putting out the range markers. You’re fighting wrong if your are – playing to your enemies strengths. As I said – every weapon has a time and a place. Not yet. (But get it ready).
For now, prepare, network, make babies, propagandize, and inflict as much material damage to the system and it’s legitimacy as you can without putting yourself in the cross-hairs. Overt stuff comes later, after the systemic collapse accentuates how illegitimate the unaccountable bureaucracy running the show in America truly is.
Patient predators dine on easy meals. Impulsive ones get trampled by the moose.
Every day you see something you could probably gum up – yes? Ask yourself – can I probably get away with it? What are the repercussions to me if I am caught? Weigh the probabilities/potential cost, and go about your life, throwing spanners in the works were-ever possible.
This won’t be like a conventional war, not at first. Escalation, rhetoric, starving the beast and crashing the system – forcing the state to eat itself and choke on it’s own burdensome red tape. It will then do away with the pretenses – in order to save itself, the velvet glove will come off the iron hand of tyranny.
Then… well now. More direct actions become justified, with more public support. We gotta talk till they shout, nudge till they shove, punch till they stab, and THEN we can shoot.
Baby steps. We can’t go from A strait to Z. We have to raise the temperature to a revolutionary boiling point the same way FedGov has creeped it’s tyranny.
Example: In 2000, the thought of a federalized Police State raping women at the airport, 14 Trillion in national debt, Open Federal reserve money printing to the tune of a trillion a year, and 90 million people on federal programs as their chief source of sustenance was UNTHINKABLE.
Now? Oh-hum, welcome to daily life. The slow creep allowed this to become “the norm” despite how truly and terribly shocking the reality is.
Escalation of the revolution has to take place in the same manner. Right now, hanging the bastards seems shocking to Joe 6-pack. If the stage show is properly executed however, the tit-for-tat will bring us to that destination, and the same folks who’d have recoiled at the concept initially, will be throwing rotten food while the bastards dangle and gurgle at the gibbets.
This is how we begin the task before us, open, free and even contentious discussion among friends. We’ll find the answers, the solutions and the spirit needed to reclaim our heritage. It worked for our founders and it will work for us. Communication of ideas will build us a pool of wisdom that will be formidable at this stage in retaking the Republic.
