Special Note: This is the second part in our ‘Getting Off The Globalist Chessboard’ series. Go here to read Part I. Also go to Operation Sleeping Giant for more information , and, be sure to check out our recently launched Safe Haven State Project (page still under construction).
As we noted in part one of this series:
“To put it simply, America is nearing a checkmate scenario. Like the final torrid maneuvers of a rigged chess match, we have been pressed, manipulated, and attacked into the last remaining corner of the “grand global chessboard” left to us; centralized control of all social and economic power into the hands of an unworthy elite. If we continue playing the game by their rules, we will lose. There is no doubt. There have been many solutions presented to us in the past to combat this development, but nearly all of them function within the constraints of Federal politics. Working within the system has earned us no quarter, and frankly, no results. Our only recourse (and, frankly, the best recourse all along) is to STOP relying on the rules of their game, and to walk away from the chess board completely...”
Ideally, it would be grand if enough Americans across this nation would decouple from the fraudulent fiat system so that they and their communities could be sufficiently strong, independent, and resilient enough to weather the coming storm and walk out the other side free. Whatever our individual circumstances, wherever we are, we should work toward that goal; decentralized and sovereign – starting with ourselves, then working outward to galvanize and steel our families, our close friends and distant relatives, our neighborhoods, towns, counties, and then, of course, our states.
Through this effort, we greatly improve our own chances, and equally important, the chances of our communities and our country. It is not only for us to save ourselves, but also to restore our Republic, from the ground up.
We also need to face the reality that an economic collapse is very likely to come before such a renaissance of preparedness will see the light of day. We must accept that in many parts of modern day America, we will not be able to wake up enough people in time to prevent a U.S. version of what we now see in the riots of England, as well as what we saw here in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but on a national scale – unprepared people who are desperate and scared, or those who are willing to take advantage of the situation to loot, rob, rape, assault, and even kill their fellow citizens.
Some might say that in times like these, uncertainty reigns supreme. However, for those of us in the Liberty Movement, who have spent years carefully tracking the negative progressions of our economy, our government, and our culture, the future is disturbingly clear. We’ve all noticed the turning of the tide, in financial sectors, in political attitudes, in social interaction, in law and law enforcement; our country is, indeed, eroding before our very eyes. It is degrading into something unrecognizable; something monstrous. The pace has quickened, especially in 2011, and those who have chosen to “wait out” the storm in the hopes of a comprehensive top down solution are becoming more and more disappointed and disenchanted.
This is not to say that astounding strides have not been made. The Liberty Movement has an incredibly strong and decisive presence on the internet and in our society today, something that we could not boast three years ago. Efforts to educate the public on globalism, central banking, and economic collapse have brought substantial results that are visible now even in the so called mainstream. However, root problems of centralization and fiscal instability remain. These problems will never be undone unless we are first honest with ourselves.
I'm not sure there's an absolute need to relocate to these safe haven locations unless you are living in the eye of the storm, a heavily populated urban area. Living where I do in WI, it is mostly rural, farm country in every direction. And if it doesn't work out here... my family can always head back up NE to the Upper Peninsula of MI. It is pure country up there and even have family that literally live in the deep of the woods. And many people up there are already living off the grid. It's always nice to have a plan A, B and C just in case. I have to figure out the C still ;)
I like the idea of building these community's! You just might see me move to one!
I agree, Tara, for those of us not in heavy urban areas I see no great need to move. The 'safe haven' concept appealed to me mainly because I have a sys in place that's conceptually, very similar. Being in a small town with a large agricultural, self-reliant tradition has made my task more of a barter building/mutual support effort than anything else.
Always a good idea to have multiple contingency plans :)
Check out www.AnastasiaKinsDomains.com We are building one of these communities right now.
Thanks. I'm getting the Hell out of Dodge. Fully self-sustainable.
If you take people on Disability Income, then I am your man. LOL! Most will just shut down after that statement, but many of us have a lot to offer in the way of Transportation Services, Tech knowledge, etc. but couldn't help but respond to you, since I love Costa Rica so much. I visited it once on my way to Chile.
Off course we do Nathan. Go to the site and subscribe. There's tons of info there.
