Prepping for slavery
Barry Bright
Feb. 11, 2011

When I was a small boy growing up on my grandparents’ family farm there was an old road map that floated around our basement. My grandparents or parents may have used it from time to time but I remember the picture on the front of it – a drawing of a family driving down a nice wide road in a 50’s era car.

The interstate system hadn’t been around but a few years then, and the gas company wanted to promote using it, to sell more gas of course. I just used it as a conveyance for my earliest dreams, to travel and see the country and world as that family was doing.

Slow-forward 40 plus years and gas is $3 a gallon and projected to go higher. Travel for pleasure? That’s only for the well off now. I’ve spent a large part of the last decade and a half wondering when or if enough would wake up enough to understand why.

In my youthful ignorance, with my college degree, I believed Bill Klinton when it said it was against the North Amerikan Free Trade Agreement. When it signed it during its first year in office and a Democrat, you know, the ‘party of the little man’-dominated Congress, voted it into law at least 30 million of us should have gotten in our cars and driven to the District of Commie Criminals with enough rope and ammunition to do what should have been done.

But we sat on our hands, still stupidly pretending that maybe it would turn out OK.

Along that time we watched on the weaponvision as our government forces murdered 80 people in what was essentially a live-in church. Instead of streaming to Texas and hanging black-suited Nazis along the highways as they deserved we sat on our hands stupidly thinking that they must have had a reason for such tyranny.

Now, after a housing bust that a few distant voices in the wilderness warned us about became reality, and ‘a large number’ was handed over to various corporate entities that probably should have been allowed to die, we wait with bated breath for the final shoe to drop, a possible hyperinflation or deflation, or whatever version one cares to worry about, still sitting on our hands pretending it might turn out OK.

And it probably will. The odds of history show, that despite all the ways the world can end or the ways ‘civilization as we know it’ can crash, in two or three generations there will still be humans scratching around on this rock, maybe with rocks, or maybe with modern tools we don’t understand yet.

The only question that matters, that ever matters, is this: “Will they be free enough to scratch for themselves or will they be forced to scratch for someone else at the point of a sword, a gun or a ray gun?”

Let’s not discount the political solution. The Founders worked politically up until ‘the shot heard ‘round the world’ and even after as they kept diplomats in foreign lands.

They did not stupidly believe that once they sent their letter to the English Parliament and King that all they’d get in return was a postcard wishing them well. Blood had already been spilled by a tyrannical government, as it has been now. Political prisoners sat behind bars as they do now.

Thousands or maybe tens of thousands across this country who are aware enough of possible scenarios are ‘prepping’ by storing up groceries, learning to garden and practicing animal husbandry such as our ancestors did. Some of them are digging in, buying weapons and ammunition for some kind of heroic last stand.

I like what one of our most famous generals had to say about that:

"Fixed fortifications are monuments to the stupidity of man." - George S. Patton

Back in the 70’s several families of what the locals called ‘hippies’ moved out into the hills around here and began to live the simple life. A few years later only a few remained.

Whenever I meet the later versions of those, usually patriot types or just sheeple who think things are getting bad enough to warrant escaping the cities, I tell them I was raised on a farm and I have no romantic illusions about it. Subsistence farming as it was practiced by my grandparents’ generation is hard boring drudgery.

Yes, I’m being intentionally redundant in that description. I spent enough hot days in the garden and ‘baccer patch in my youth, stopping often to dream of a better life as did millions who grew up on farms in this country when things were done in the old ways.

My generation was lucky. We were partly raised by Captain Kangaroo who showed us something of the world outside the hills. And most roads were paved or at least graveled. We could hop in the car or truck and drive to town and back in an hour or so if we really needed something. My great aunts and uncles in their 70s remember when most of the roads were dirt or mud and a trip to the county seat was a day-long venture. So much for the good ol’ days and ways.

People were tougher then, and maybe their teachers were tougher on them, but they weren’t all necessarily smarter. They did let FDR and the communists in his cabinet die natural deaths, not to mention the countless communist infiltrators in other government institutions, schools and universities and news and entertainment media.

Joe McCarthy was right and many who knew better allowed his efforts to be destroyed by a well-orchestrated propaganda campaign by tucking their tails and running just because he made a few simple mistakes.

Those who claim to love Liberty need to learn that there are no perfect warriors nor saviors. The ‘army of god’ isn’t any more likely to storm out of the sky and save us than it did the Jews when the Romans descended on their temple and tore it down stone by stone

If there are, and there probably are, technologically superior entities poised to beam or fly in, there’s no guarantee they’ll all be in favor of human Liberty, or that they’ll truly be invincible. If one lands on my front yard and starts whining like a little commie about ‘saving the Earth’ or ‘redistributing the wealth’ I’m going to do all in my power to kill it.

Regardless of what our future holds, and tomorrow is guaranteed to no one, do you want to have a grandchild or great-grandchild look up at you someday and ask: “Why did you just hide? Why didn’t you fight back?”

Most likely, they’ll be so stupid they will equate their gun-owning Liberty-loving ancestors with Neanderthals and grandpa will know better than to try to counter the propaganda the kiddies are spoon fed in the government indoctrination centers(schools).

Make no mistake, if the worst predictions of the New World Order are real, there will be no where to hide. At best they’ll let your 6 months to a year of food stuffs run out and wait for you to come into town with your guns and children in hand, begging to trade anything for a bag of rice or beans.

Think of it as a nationwide low-level siege. It won’t be the first time in history gold was cast into the street because there was nothing to buy with it or children were butchered and cooked like deer.

One little tin soldier can’t do a lot, but millions of them would be a force to be contended with. The same liars who will automatically whine we can’t fight a modern military will also claim we lost in Vietnam, when that war was lost here, or that we couldn’t win in Iraq or in Afghanistan against a bunch of raghead insurgents with little to no real military training.

If we’re lucky maybe we’ll put enough patriots in Congress and the White House, who will get to stay there long enough, to make sure the military is on our side when things get bad and the Marxist insurgents among us decide to return to their violent ways. Luck isn’t something to be counted on in the real world.

For years before the War for Southern Independence people were preparing, forming Militias. Their mistake was in fighting a standard war against a better supplied force, and in not being vicious and brutal enough at the outset. They underestimated the evil and determination of an enemy that would allow others to pay any price for their profit.

They should have known better:

“There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil men.” - Edmund Burke

Neither the Founders nor the Southern patriots wanted to give up the lives they had built for themselves. They decided to fight, for better or for worse.

This mess won’t be fixed by millions crawling down into their hidey holes. This mess will only be fixed by millions walking proudly out into the light, standing courageously up and attacking our problems and enemies head on.

Let’s look to the general again for a thought on that:

"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country". -- George S. Patton

In this case it won’t be for a country, but to demand that Liberty reign here in the land of the once free and sometimes brave.


"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)

It's time to bring back the old saying: "Better dead than red."
Only we need to apply it to Amerika's reds.


Watch to see what we should be teaching kids
to do to "Liberals" so they'll actually
have a future in a free country:

“No small shot gun, during my residence of seven years of war in America, was ever kept in the house of a backwoodsman. You will often see a boy not over ten years of age driving the cattle home, but not without a rifle on his shoulder; they never stir out on any business, or on a journey without their rifles. Practice from their infancy, teaches them all distances…

   “I never in my life saw better rifles (or men who shot better) than those made in America. They are chiefly made in Lancaster, and two or three neighboring towns in that vicinity in Pennsylvania. The barrels weigh about six pounds two or three ounces and carry a ball no larger than thirty-six to the pound; at least I never saw one of a larger caliber, and I have seen many hundreds and hundreds.” - Colonel George Hanger, captain of a Hessian Jager corps of the American Revolution, as quoted in Muzzleloader Magazine's 'The Book of Buckskinning.'

Our civilization has been taken from mindless aggression to mindless pacifism. The latter is the most dangerous by far. We must put knowledge of our most basic right, that of self-defense, back into the hands and minds of the young, or they are doomed to be mindless pacified slaves, and most importantly 'victims' who can be used as pawns by those who seek to maintain their power over us all.

"Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom." - John Adams, Defense of the Constitutions, 1787

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." - Richard Henry Lee (1732-1794) Founding Father

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

Folk music records what Vermonters responded to British soldiers who would impose their will upon them:
"Why come ye hither, Redcoats? Your mind what madness fills? For there’s danger in our valleys and there’s danger on our hills. Why hear ye not the singing of the bugle wild and free? Full soon you’ll hear the ringing of the rifle from the tree! For the rifle, for the rifle: in our hands shall prove no trifle."

"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason."
- Thomas Paine, the first paragraph of his Pamphlet, “Common Sense.”
