Me and the little mouse in the picture have one thing in common, I don’t intend to give up. Maybe I won’t solve all the world’s problems, free mankind from the shackles of Debt Structured Bondage, find a Real cure for warts or anything else profound. But I promise you this, I will do everything in my power to keep my family and friends free for as long as I possibly can. After I have fired my last shot and the enemy is still coming I will have the pleasure of shooting the finger at the would be world rulers.
I was asked again last night “Where are you running to?” I ain’t running. If they want me I’ll be on my front porch. I ran once, in the Great Mekong Marathon. Early in 1975 we had to stay one jump ahead of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and gathered up as many of our people as we could along the way to get the hell out of Dodge. I am not saying what I do because I don’t know any better. I am saying what I do because I have already been there and it stinks.
I know that all of you are well read and informed and are aware of what is happening with regard to S.1867. I know that all of you have seen or heard Obama speech in 2009 about Preventive Detention. (If you haven’t look here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbslm1h8xjI ). But invariably someone is going to ask, “How can you stay in the US?” Where do I go?
Name one nation in the world that will allow me to bring ALL my belongings, including gold, silver and firearms and keep them without interference. I know a lot of people are FLEEING to Mexico, Costa Rica, Belize and Chile. How is that better than where we are right now? Mexico has seen about 40,000 of its citizens slaughtered in the last 2 years. Over half the number of American servicemen killed in Vietnam in one fifth of the time. Technically, your odds of getting killed in Mexico are better than in Iraq or Afghanistan. If you want to flee to an English speaking country, outside of Europe, that would leave basically New Zealand and Australia. Many people are leaving Australia because of some of its draconian laws (anti-gun) and New Zealand MAY be better but you would have to prove it to me. If you can afford to buy your citizenship in New Zealand maybe you can get a job working for James Cameron, now that he has announced that he is leaving the United States.
My question back is why should I run? It is my country. I was born here. I wore the uniform. Why should I have to leave my country because the government has gone totally beserk? I don’t, and I’m not. Is it insanity? Probably. But if there are two reasons I would willing lay down my life for, it would be for my faith in God and my country, which God has so graciously given me for a home.
So don’t try to use logic or reason to tell me how wrong I am for staying and fighting for my Constitution, that I have sworn to defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. Insanity knows nor cares about, reason. We insane people do things because they FEEL right. It is a tense, tugging, almost sicking feeling, not in your head, but in your heart. And no, it is not heartburn.
You think and reason with your head, but you fall in love with your heart. And, yes, I am in love with America. I am in love with everything that America was meant to be. I am in love with those champions of freedom who got together and had the unmitigated gall to declare war on the greatest superpower of its day, the British Empire. Two percent of the population, 2%, found the courage to take up arms and fight the mightiest nation on Earth in 1776, and fight for their freedom. I will not defecate on their courage, sacrifice and memory by running.
Do I have any false illusions or delusions? No! I spied for the United States Government while working for the National Security Agency and I have no illusions as to their capabilities. They know who I am and where I live. There are no secrets from the god Asmadeus.
I have no illusions about my physical capabilities. I’ve had two heart attacks and Agent Orange has diminished my nervous system as well. I am overweight and walk with a limp. My back was messed up in a bad jump so I am in pain most of the time, but I choose not to use pain killers. I have arthritis in both shoulders from carrying that stupid radio direction finding equipment around for years. I look more like a fat PeeWee Herman than Rambo.
Why am I saying all of this? Because our time is growing short. I have said it before, you don’t have much time left to prepare. Prepare your retreat, prepare you food supplies, prepare you firearms and ammunition and most of all prepare your hearts and minds. The little mouse in the picture above has prepared his heart and his mind. Have You?
So, please don’t waste your time and mine by writing telling me how stupid it is to stay here. I know. It doesn’t make any sense at all. Don’t write and tell me how wrong I am about New Zealand or Mexico or Canada or any other country. I know. They are beautiful and the people are wonderful. But I’m in love. And my love is in America. I hope you love your new country as much as I love America. But what happens when they come for you there? Good Luck!
