What Is To Be Done - Part 1: Situation
If media reports are to believed, the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election is now settled.
The next President of the United States will, in all probability, be either
- a unprincipled anti-gun RINO opportunist who believes that what the American economy needs is more central planning and, despite his two oaths (as an officer in the U.S. Navy and as a U.S. Senator) to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic", that
"...I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I'd rather have the clean government."
- an inexperienced anti-gun junior Senator with the most liberal voting record in the Senate, an appallingly expensive domestic agenda, and millions of followers with a frothing case of messianic delusion.
Top that, at least in Obama's case, with the real possibility of control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the situation is bleak indeed.
What is to be done?
No, not the tract by proto-mass-murderer V.I. Lenin.
Instead - what is it that freedom-insistent Americans need to do, in detail, to maximize their chances in the coming Storm?
Many of the posts on this blog to date have been published with the hope of awakening the reader to the multiple and converging threats to human freedom appearing over the horizon.
Hopefully, those posts - whether concerning the demise of traditional America, the ongoing economic collapse, the rise of the transnational socialist police state, or the related spectres of energy and food shortages - have been of some use towards that end.
With the approach of the 2008 election and its aftermath, however, it's time for a slight shift in emphasis.
Think of it as transitioning from "there's a fire in the woods just outside town" to "here's what we need to do to fight the fire." We've already started this effort with our "SHTF Medical" courses, and our next one is later this month.
Those who think that what we've discussed to date is "too radical" or "scaremongering" had best move over to the children's table.
The adults amongst us are going to have a serious discussion.
