Now the other option if forming a new country should become necessary combines secession with forming a new country, by finding suitable land that is in a state of anarchy with no true government authority in place any longer, and sparsely if at all populated. This would be a very risky, dangerous mission, given the violence throughout the undeveloped world.
It would take a considerable amount of money to do anything of this sort, obviously, to fund transportation, arm the settlers for security, provide food and other supplies, etc.. The tyrants of the world will of course want to crush an attempt by people at freedom but, that must not dissuade freedom-lovers from seeking it. I was inspired by a mention of micronations on a forum. This could be made a reality should events in the United States turn for the worst in the next several years or decades. The United States is not a lost cause as of yet so do not give up hope in improving the country our ancestors created, including, one of my ancestors whose signature as a delegate from NH is on the Constitution.

Some other things:
Rahm Emanuel in a speech said the following: “If you're on that no-fly list, your access to the right to bear arms is canceled, because you're not part of the American family. You don't deserve that right."
So he wants to strip people of their rights by simply placing them on a secret list, no trial or conviction of a felony. You can be blacklisted and lose all your rights if he gets his wish.
Obama is having volunteers sent out to get people to pledge to support Obama and his policies. Take note of the following from one of the organizers:
"We're looking for supporters," said DeHaven of Hoover, one of the event's organizers. "We're not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army."
And note the following video that shows some of these people:
It seems a lot like the start of the brown shirts of Obama (looking for a fight? While running Obama said to supporters to get in the faces of opponents). I'm sure everyone remembers for Obama calling for a national police force, as well trained and funded as the military, under his own control. Well, this doesn't sit right to me in a free Republic.
Also, that report from MIAC on militias has supposedly been retracted due to massive outcry:
There are efforts underway by pro-liberty individuals and groups, such as Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty, to obtain through a state equivalent of the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the sources and other information on this report. I am almost willing to wager that the report's authors used the SPLC or ADL's radical left-wing propaganda for sources.
A left-leaning federal judge granted the Brady Campaign's request for an injunction blocking the rule allowing visitors to carry guns in National Parks:
This is absurd. it was nowehere near a "last minute" rule as it was in the works for months and lobbying efforts went on for years. National Forests allow people to carry firearms in accordance with state laws. Carrying a handgun concealed has no effect on the environment (target shooting and shooting wildlife is still prohibited in National Parks). A judge single-handedly took away a right protected by the Second Amendment. It will be appealed and I do believe the anti-freedom gun grabbers will lose but in the meantime it creates a mess both for the Park Service and citizens visiting parks, and puts more lives in danger by disarming people.
Hillarly Clinton and Eric Holder are trying to argue that the drug cartels in Mexico are getting their weapons from U.S. gun stores and guns hows and that we must ban "assault weapons." Well, I truly would like to know which gun stores and gun shows are selling fully automatic firearms, grenades, anti-tank weapons and so forth over the counter, as these are the weapons being used down there not semi-automatic AR's and such. I haven't even found many Class 3 dealers who will carry grenades and certain other "destructive devices" which are strictly regulated by the National Firearms Act ($200 transfer or making tax, paperwork needing approval, background check). To think these people would buy overpriced semi-autos in the U.S. when full-autos are available cheap illegally South of the border, well, that's a poor excuse. I hope enough people see through the lies and propaganda coming from this administration.

This sort of thing truly infuriates me: thug cops ignorant of the law trying to ruin a man's life. Under the FOPA (Firearm Owners' Protection Act) of 1986, a federal law, this man had every right to transport these firearms through MA from CT, since they were legal in both his starting point (CT) and his destination (ME). Of course they play the story up as though he were Osama Bin Laden, with a tiny number of common weapons and some perfectly legal body armor. The FOPA of 1986:
Title 1: State Firearms Control Assistance
Sec. 926A. Interstate
transportation of firearms
Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any
rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person
who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or
receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful
purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to
any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during
such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any
ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible
from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle:Provided, That in
the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's
compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container
other than the glove compartment or console.
On top of that, even under MA state law he had a right to transport them:
Mass. General Laws
Chapter 140, Section 129C
A non-resident may possess a rifle
or shotgun in Massachu setts:
1. While hunting and in possession of a valid
2. While on a firing or shooting range.
3. While traveling in
or through Massachusetts if the rifle or shotgun is unloaded and enclosed in a
4. While at a firearms show organized by a “regularly existing gun
collector’s club or association.”
5. If he or she has a license or permit to
possess any firearm in his or her home state, if its licensing requirements are
as stringent as those of Massachusetts, as indicated by a published list of such
states promulgated by the colonel of state police.
The charges should have been thrown out. Instead, he needs to come up with $10,000 in bail to get out of prison. And he is facing felony charges which, if he is convicted of violating them, his life will be effectively ruined. It will harm his ability to get a job or home. He won't even be able to have a single round of ammunition again. I truly, absolutely, hate thug cops who do such tyrannical acts! I hope he gets a good lawyer and beats the thugs, and I truly wish his mother would follow the advice any lawyer will give someone: shut up, and don't talk to the police.

As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few
gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to
reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,
Worse is his reasoning for it:
"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum"
So he wants to strip us of our constitutional rights to do Mexico a favor. Considering Mexico's military has occasionally gone across our border with arms to protect drug smugglers, I'd say this fits the definition of treason in that he is rendering aid or comfort to our enemies. To say Mexico is our friend is a farce.
Of course, everyone knows the original "assault weapons" ban had no effect on crime. The FBI carefully studied it and found it had no effect. http://articles.latimes.com/2005/jun/28/opinion/oe-lott28 And why would it? Firstly, criminals do not obey such laws. A person intent on murder won't suddenly obey a restriction on guns. Secondly, it affected weapons used in only a very tiny percentage of crimes (simply put, most criminals don't use rifles, they use the more convenient and inexpensive handguns). Thirdly, "assault weapon" is a manufactured term that has no meaning. It is applied by anti-gun lunatics on whatever gun they find "scary" due to looks. Take a Ruger 10/22 and add some sort of folding stock, a long magazine, and suddenly, it's an "assault weapon" even though it is functionally no different than a standard wood-stocked 10/22 "hunting" gun. And let us not forget we must ban those evil bayonet lugs, look at all the driveby bayonettings! This lunacy is simply a chipping away of our rights incrementally. And of course the anti-freedom activists love the fact that it creates hundreds of complex regulations that most people won't even understand, leading perfectly harmless people to become criminals for such silly things as what kind of stock is on a gun or such.
To the filthy scumbag tyrants who wish to enslave us, I say it's time to secede. Rather nicely, several states have proposed bills asserting state sovereignty rights under the 10th Amendment. Not secession, but certainly a step towards that direction. Here is a link discussing it: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=89842
I would much prefer to see this country broken up and have some states remain free, than to see the union hold and all states become cesspools of tyranny. Urge your state representatives and senators to stand up to the federal tyrants.

Considering nationalization of banks: http://www.ptinews.com/pti%5Cptisite.nsf/0/247AE7BB29A46E446525754A002374EE?OpenDocument
Nazi-istic following of Obama, in which celebs pledge to be servants of Obama: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=50632298
He doesn't like to be questioned by the media: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0109/17831.html
He's already surrounded himself with a cloak of secrecy (apart from the fact that the executive order allowing funds to be sent to provide abortion overseas was a Friday night, hope no-one notices, arrangement): http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/wire/sns-ap-obama-news-access,1,6232068.story
No lobbyists? Sounds good, in fact, too good to be true. He will waive the rules for those he wants in: http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/groups-urge-senate-to-reject-lynn-2009-01-23.html
And about that executive order outlawing torture? Well, on the face it looks like a step in the right direction, but he left a loophole in that he didn't bar the use of such techniques in the future after a study is completed: http://www.unionleader.com/article.aspx?headline=Obama+in+chief%3A+Changing+the+terror+fight&articleId=840d7f17-e22f-4e88-ab9d-3450a16a895f
If anyone is interested, the Army Field Manual on interrogations is available here: http://www.globalsecurity.org/intell/library/policy/army/fm/fm34-52/
Read it and note that the techniques in that manual work in the vast majority of cases.
And finally, while some say the media serving the government is a conspiracy theory, here is Tavis Smiley of PBS saying that the media is all "working for obama": http://newsbusters.org/blogs/mark-finkelstein/2009/01/09/tavis-smiley-pbs-were-all-working-barack-obama
Here is his own words:
Harry Reid, put down the crack pipe. You don't work for Barack Obama? We're all
working for Barack Obama.
And not a week into his presidency and the media began propaganda for a gun ban. I caught CNN pushing for it on TV because of some shooting between violent gang members in Miami. Watch for more to come, the assault on liberty is in full swing. May a state quickly secede and create a free country.

Now scientists have begun to examine how the city affects the brain, and
results are chastening. Just being in an urban environment, they have found,
impairs our basic mental processes. After spending a few minutes on a
city street, the brain is less able to hold things in memory, and
reduced self-control. While it's long been recognized that city
exhausting -- that's why Picasso left Paris -- this new research
cities actually dull our thinking, sometimes dramatically so.
Of course, I would prefer the city people stay in the cities, or else everyplace will be crowded.
I think the other things they miss are important: cities breed a culture of dependence wheras rural areas breed a culture of independence. In a city, a person is absolutely dependent upon others for even the basic needs of survival: food, clothing and shelter. It is virtually impossible to be self-sufficient in a city. In rural areas, obviously, one could be entirely self-sufficient if one desired to do so, because you could grow and raise all your own food, supply your own energy (wood, etc.), and even trap furbearers for clothing. Obviously this has major implications for the future of freedom: those in cities, who are not independently minded, favor more controls and governmental involvement in their lives because they believe it necessary for their well-being. Those who are independent of course will not want such interference. This is the reason why Thomas Jefferson favored having a nation of independent farmers: such a society would not want governmental interference and would contribute to keeping the country free. An urban society, however, wants the government controlling more to maintain order. Less freedom therefore. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that this country began the road to significantly less freedom and more government at the same time it became more urbanized. If this country were split along rural/urban lines into two countries, one would see that the rural areas would become the most free country, the urban areas, the least free.
