Episode 177, Trumping America

Turning our attention again to Camp Pain 2016, who can we talk about but the primary generator of heat and noise, the "Republican" front-runner and would-be destroyer of worlds?

We recap what the pundits are saying about Trump and how they have been wrong from the beginning.

We talk about Trump's prospects of winning it all (pretty good), and what we could expect from the resulting presidency (not so good).

We finish up with what Trump's opposition is doing, or getting ready to do, to finally, finally derail his improbable candidacy.  They're desperate--just how far will they go?

Episode 176, That Oregon Standoff

In the last podcast I talked about how resistance is vital to the restoration of our liberties.

In the meantime, the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon came to a tragic climax with the shooting death of Lavoy Finicum.

Was the armed occupation of the Refuge facilities a good idea?  Is this the way for us to push back the federal leviathan?  Or are there more effective ways of channeling our resistance, ways that are more productive, in terms of producing the outcome we ultimately want, a restoration of the American ideal of individual liberty and self-reliance?

Episode 175, Resistance Is Vital

The danger we face as individualists is becoming absorbed by the lefty collectivist horde, or being killed by them for resisting, as were tens of millions in the 20th century.

This leaves many of us with a difficult question--two, actually:

  1. What can we do to resist the collectivist onslaught, before the shooting starts?
  2. Should we resist at all--or should we lay low, pretending to be absorbed?

I take as a matter of faith that the answer to #2 is yes, we should resist--resistance is vital. Though it is perfectly acceptable to deceive the collectivists tactically, the objective is to defeat them, and that will, at some point, require active resistance.

The answer to #1 requires some thought and creativity, with some ideas offered in this podcast.

P.S.  Here is a link to the Michael Hill article read on the podcast.
