IT’S TIME.

Time to begin the Second American Revolution. Time to take that first step-and take back a town!

Everyone,

Before I proceed I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support for my essays these past four years. Your encouragement means more than I can express. It’s a good thing when you come up with thoughts, ideals, put them to words and people out there understand what you’re saying. So I hope you’ll agree that taking action and getting results are more critical than ever. Because I’m going to ask you do something; get together with others as sick of just protesting, talking yourselves blue about change and burning precious hours in endless circular arguments on the net. Because I am, too.

Time to put the ideals I’ve given you into real life results. We’re going to take over a town, kick off the Second American Revolution with a Recall Election.

We’re going to come up with a list of candidate towns; these will be based on the following criteria:

*Good geographic distance from major urban areas. Keep the mindless urban hordes at bay, reduce political influence of urban and state governments.

*Mix of local industry, resources, agriculture, potential for independent power generation. If a collapse goes forward, the more the candidate town can be self-sufficient, the better.

*Potential defensibility. Expecting trouble is prudent. Terrain can work with us like, say, in Appalachia, out West, the Ozarks. Towns in the Great Plains are like France in 1940; a flat expanse asking for assault. Plus local populations in mountain communities stand a chance of not being completely gelded.

*A review of that town’s Consolidated Annual Financial Report; a lot of what we’re going to do rests on just how much that town has bilked Americans for their taxes just to invest it. Given the current economic climate, yes there may not be much left-or there may be enough land, buildings, assets, cashable investments, etc. to give that town a economic rebirth.

*Political vulnerability of existing local government. This is the most important criteria. So important that I personally would be willing to compromise on other criteria if we can find a corrupt little shitburg whose people are ready for change-that we will give them!

We’re not going to get our Second American Revolution at the national level-we tried that, we don’t have the numbers, media penetration, or political strength. We have to build that strength one state at a time. Which means we have to build up our strength to take over that state one county at a time. Which means we have to build up our strength to take over that county one town at a time-and we as a movement have to take that first step, because with our numbers and relative strength concentrating, taking over a town and using it as a real world showcase for our ideals and showing Americans what Freedom really is is the only way we can penetrate the enemy’s cultural and media grip on them.

So which town will that be?

Help choose that town. Use your God given intelligence, mull the criteria and give us some candidate towns that need our attention first. Go to this message board:

http://www.voy.com/207159/

We’ll post candidate towns, gather intel, have lots of arguments about where to concentrate our efforts. It’ll be worth even the effort, but victory and emulation as our Revolution spreads like Ebola across America… can you picture it? Yet we can’t take that journey until we take that first step-that first step beyond mere internet theorizing and flaming each other because we’re all understandably frustrated we can’t get our message out. A Second American Revolution in a corrupt shitburg and transforming it into a model community of Free Humanity, and publicizing the results in a never ending stream of news reports will get the message out.

So if you’re into actually doing something about the way things are going spread this message to the four winds! We’ll go from there, narrow our choices to a few towns or even one town. Then, establishing legal residencies-a mail drop in a house will do-we’ll begin with that town and states applicable emergency recall petition rules. We’ll select our candidates and begin our campaign as I’ve outlined in my articles.

It’s time. Let’s do it already!

There is no need for Patriots to wait for a full election cycle to replace corrupt public officials and take back YOUR government! Use the power of a Recall Petition.

It worked in 2003 in California to replace Grey Davis… except that it was a op to get Arnold Schwarzenegger in who otherwise couldn’t have gotten elected.

We can use this! Gather all the Patriots in your state, pick a town that’s corrupt. File legal residency, and start a recall petition. Usually, you have 90 days to get all the names.

Then stage your election. Take precautions to have duplicate offices, have squeaky clean candidates who won’t sell out.

When you get in… you’ll know what to do.

REGULATIONS OF RECALL PETITIONS:

Recall of State Officials
March 21, 2006

Overview

Recall is a procedure that allows citizens to remove and replace a public official before the end of a term of office. Historically, recall has been used most frequently at the local level. By some estimates, three-fourths of recall elections are at the city council or school board level. This brief, however, focuses only on the recall as it applies to state officials.

Recall differs from another method for removing officials from office – impeachment – in that it is a political device while impeachment is a legal process. Impeachment requires the House to bring specific charges and the Senate to act as a jury. In most of the eighteen recall states, specific grounds are not required, and the recall of a state official is by an election.

Eighteen states permit the recall of state officials:

Alaska
Arizona
California
Colorado
Georgia
Idaho
Kansas
Louisiana
Michigan
Minnesota
Montana
Nevada
New Jersey
North Dakota
Oregon
Rhode Island
Washington
Wisconsin

The District of Columbia also provides for recalls. Virginia is not listed as a recall state because its process, while requiring citizen petitions, allows a recall trial rather than an election. In at least 29 states (some sources place this number at 36), recall elections may be held in local jurisdictions.

    wy a small town? what kind of effect would that have??

  2. freedomguide Says:

    You need a small town to first, get your people in and register them as residents. Second, because smaller government don’t have the resoucres to fight for their offices like cities do. Third, because its more likely you can get enough local support to win the election. Fourth, smaller government makes it easier to put together a campaign ticket of candidates to sweep the entire town government.

    You make life better for the locals by repealing laws and taxes, and repatriating the investments listed in the Consolidated Annual Financial Reports back to the Citizens, and do your best to report your results you’re going to have neighboring communities who will want the same. So you send your people-both your original campaign staff and new recruits-to your neighboring communities and hold RECALL ELECTIONS there.

    Once you get a majority of communities in a county hold a RECALL ELECTION for County Sheriff. This is vital as the Sheriff can block federal interference… if you don’t then the Sheriff will be used as a means to use dirty tricks like bogus drug raids and counter-terrorist raids to stop you.

    You see where this can go?

    The town of Quartzsite Arizona is your place. And now would be the time.

  4. underdogmilitia Says:

    I would be less interested in focusing on recall, and more interested in concentrating on a “free state project” the two biggest ones so far are Wyoming and New Hampshire. It looks like the patriots are having some success in New Hampshire, plus there is a steady stream of patriots moving there. That tread is increasing.

    Reply:

    I’d be bolder and call for them to concentrate their efforts and move to one town they can use their numbers to take over and implement their policies. As they stand they’re still a tiny minority shotgunned all over the state. Even though NH is a small state only a few thousand people-even as politically active as the Free Staters-can only come off as political curiosities until and unless they achieve actual political gains. For their numbers that means concentrating on a small corrupt town they can take over via a emergency recall election and institute all the reforms they’ve been talking about forever. This requires action and I have to say a lot of libertarians are nothing but talk.

    BTW, I signed up for the Free State New Hampshire Forum and started to post-I got banned! The queefly little a-holes called me a RACIST?!!

    Enemy ain’t me…
