Re: Any ideas on a haven?
Larry, Aaron, Caroline, Nickbert,Joe2, Diap and those of a similar mindset………thanks for reminding us all of the qualities that made this country "free" in the first place. Freedom requires constant vigilance and safe to say we Americans have been doing a bit too much partying of late and the shop has gone to hell.
We know the "enemy" so to speak and with knowledge and communication we can also exert control. The international moneylenders have figured a way to take over nations without firing a shot. We can take back our rights and freedoms the same way. I’m not saying we should not have the will to fight but the battle may end up being less with bullets than with a simple unwillingness to continue to play the debt game.
The "Web of Debt" by Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D. is a good read on this.
Strabes, you said
"Ok. I asked about international havens…but there’s currently a
less than 50/50 chance of me choosing that option because I do want to
participate in the solution and because I love community and want to
What are people’s thoughts on the best place to be
domestically?? I don’t think there’s a right answer here, but I think
it’s worth chatting about."
I say …good choice! We will need all the help we can muster.
I happen to live in California. Fortunately not in one of the mass detention camps such as LA but rather in a Gold Rush community. Had I not grown up in this area I might choose the Eastern slopes of the Rockies or I might even consider Californicating Arkansas!
But I will ride it out here. I hope to use whatever goodwill I have generated as a long time resident and local businesman to enlighten and circle the wagons. This area gets 25 to 36 inches of rainfall/yr, backs up to the Sierra Nevada Mts with lots of forested area and natural watershed and has had volcanic activity in the past to produce fairly good soils. The early miners were self sufficient here for the most part. We are above the central valley fog belt and below the snow line so there is good solar access. To the East the range goes to 13,000 ft so we also have our backs to the wall so to speak!
I tend to think that Calif. in general though would be a possibly poor choice due to overall population density, cost of living and general economic conditions. It will be interesting to see how the major food producing belt of the central valley evolves as regards the change from agribusiness to localized farming.
