    Feds, liberals and Californians Keep Out....

    Sounds good.


    A movement of staunch conservatives and doomsday-watchers to the inland north-west is quietly gaining steam



    Feds, liberals and Californians Keep Out


    ASKED by an out-of-stater where the nearest shooting range is, Patrick Leavitt, an affable gunsmith at Riverman Gun Works in Coeur d’Alene, says: “This is Idaho—you can shoot pretty much anywhere away from buildings.” That is one reason why the sparsely populated state is attracting a growing number of “political refugees” keen to slip free from bureaucrats in America’s liberal states, says James Wesley, Rawles (yes, with a comma), an author of bestselling survivalist novels. In a widely read manifesto posted in 2011 on his survivalblog.com, Mr Rawles, a former army intelligence officer, urged libertarian-leaning Christians and Jews to move to Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and a strip of eastern Oregon and Washington states, a haven he called the “American Redoubt”.

    I can actually confirm this. I cannot believe how many out-of-staters are arriving all the time. And, to be honest, even the Californians that come are good people that seem to be running away from the Californian insanity.

    But look a little closer, and you will see they support all those Liberal Ideas from 90's and later..... And all they are really looking to do, is get a Better Set of Digs, for half, of what they sold their Kommiefornia Place for.... and have reasonable Water Bills.....

    Nothing ever came good from any Californian Transplant after 2005. About 2007 really all hell has broken loose in the NW.
    Funny and nothing ever is done then some cute rallys were gun owners all gather hold hands and swear no more and we wont take it.,
    They do they take it whine and complain and allow more to come in and do what they want.
    I find it pretty fun Oregons number one gun lobbys motto is no compromise when all they have done is compromise.
    Pretty sad state of affairs in the NW.

    Watched the same thing happen in central Washington in the early-mid 80's. Now look at how screwed up the politiks are in that state:(. Same for Colorado in the front range area..

    I'd move to Idaho, but I'm just not up for another major move. At least not now.

    The politics in WA are f'd up from all the libs on the West side of the Cascades.... Olympia to Seattle controls the rest of the state based on population... much like many other states. We have so many libs that have moved into our side of the state, that the politics truly represents the Left Coast mentality, though I still believe that the right leaning folks in the end out number them. We just lack the motivation to mobilize and be heard... which is sad to see. I think by the time they rise up.... the fulcrum will have swung so far left, that recovery will be nil.

    That's exactly right, the right just wants to be left alone to enjoy life & not have to fight for rights we have etched in stone (the constitution).
    I too was this way until I saw the ugliness, lying & tyranny in your face corruption before Owebama was elected & when Dino Rossi was fucked out of his win for Governor of Washington. It took the Demorats 3 recounts to get her the win!!!
    This is why I do not trust the mail in ballot system!!!!

    The Idaho Refugees

    [Opening Theme]

    Come and listen to my story about a man named Jed
    An independent man, he worked and kept his family fed,
    And then one day he was shootin' to pass the time,
    And up popped a Lib who said his gun was now a crime

    Banned that is, confiscation time.

    Well the first thing you know ol Jed he got a scare,
    The kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
    Said "Northwest Redoubt is the place you ought to go"
    So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Ideeho

    Free State, that is. Respect for rights, privacy.

    Idaho refugees.

    [Closing Theme:]

    Well we'd like to say that he lived free with all his loving kin.
    The Liberals all followed him and now they're movin' in.
    Next thing they're gunna vote for laws to make his guns a crime.
    With nowhere else that he can go, soon he'll be doing time.

    Hard time that is, as a domestic terrorist,

    Y'all hide them guns now, y'hear?

    Time for the Tri-States to emerge?

    I have always thought that the Out of the Ashes series was in some ways prophetic. Freedom loving. decent, honest Americans gather together in the Idaho, Montana, Wyoming area and eventually build their own society, the Tri-States. The US breaks up into nations within a nation. The Tri-States write their own Manifesto of how they will govern their new nation. The Tri-States Manifesto. It strikes a chord in all who have read it. A common sense code for common sense people. A just and fair society. One can only dream. Maybe someday life will imitate art and fiction will become reality.

    Ben Raines, where are you?

    William W. Johnstone -- Ashes Series

    "The Rebels are a collection of like-minded individuals who believe in responsibility, honesty and self-defense. The Rebels set up a autonomous society (The Tri-states) after the war, booting out all of the bleeding heart liberals, welfare cases and criminals, while the remaining residents become citizen-soldiers. The remnants of the federal government are infuriated, and end up invading and detroying the Tri-States, after which the federal government totally collapses and anarchy reigns. Ben Raines and a select group of Rebels begin again, settling in the Southeast U.S. to establish the Southern United States of America (SUSA), meanwhile scavenging and stockpiling weapons, tanks, planes, and all manner of supplies. Law-abiding, decent Americans flock to the area, swelling the ranks of the Rebels."




    Tri-States Manifesto


    THE TRI-STATE MANIFESTO

    Excerpted from: "FROM THE ASHES: AMERICA REBORN"
    By William W. Johnstone

    [​IMG]

    AS ADVOCATES AND SUPPORTERS OF THE TRI-STATE PHILOSOPHY, WE BELIEVE:

    THAT FREEDOM, LIKE RESPECT, IS EARNED AND MUST BE CONSTANTLY NURTURED AND PROTECTED FROM THOSE WHO WOULD TAKE IT AWAY.

    IN THE RIGHT OF EVERY LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN TO PROTECT HIS OR HER LIFE, LIBERTY, AND PERSONAL PROPERTY BY ANY MEANS AT HAND WITHOUT FEAR OF ARREST, CRIMINAL PROSECUTION, OR LAWSUIT. THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS IS CENTRAL TO MAINTAINING TRUE PERSONAL FREEDOM.

    THAT LIBERAL POLITICIANS, THEORISTS, AND SOCIALISTS ARE THE GREATEST THREAT TO FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS AND THAT THEIR MISGUIDED EFFORTS HAVE CAUSED GRAVE INJUSTICES IN THE FIELDS OF CRIMINAL LAW, EDUCATION, AND PUBLIC WELFARE:

    THEREFORE IN RESPECT TO CRIMINAL LAW:

    AN EFFECTIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM SHOULD BE GUIDED BY THESE BASIC TENETS:

    -OUR COURTS SHOULD STOP PAMPERING CRIMINALS.

    -THE PUNISHMENT MUST FIT THE CRIME.

    -JUSTICE MUST BE FAIR BUT ALSO BE SWIFT AND, IF NECESSARY, HARSH.

    -THERE IS NO PERFECT SOCIETY ONLY A FAIR ONE.

    THEREFORE IN RESPECT TO EDUCATION:

    EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO SOLVING PROBLEMS IN THE SOCIETY AND THE LACK OF IT IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF AMERICA'S DECLINE.

    AN EFFECTIVE SYSTEM OF EDUCATION:

    -MUST STRESS HARD DISCIPLINE ALONG WITH THE ARTS, SCIENCES, FINE MUSIC, AND BASIC SKILLS IN READING, WRITING, AND MATHEMATICS.

    -MUST TEACH FAIRNESS AND RESPECT.

    -MUST TEACH MORALS, THE DIGNITY OF LABOR, AND THE VALUE OF FAMILY.

    THEREFORE IN RESPECT TO WELFARE:

    WELFARE (WE PREFER WORKFARE) IS RESERVED ONLY FOR THE EDERLY, INFIRM, AND THOSE WHO NEED TEMPORARY HELPING HAND AND THE WELFARE SYSTEM MUST ALSO:

    -INSTILL THE CONCEPT OF HONEST WORK FOR HONEST PAY.

    -INSTILL THE CONCEPT THAT EVERYONE WHO CAN WORK MUST WORK AND BE FORCED TO WORK IF NECESSARY.

    -INSTILL THE CONCEPT THAT THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH AND THAT BEING PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS IN A FREE SOCIETY IS THE ONLY HONORABLE PATH TO TAKE.

    THAT RACIAL PREJUDICE AND BIGOTRY ARE INTOLERABLE IN A FREE AND VITAL SOCIETY

    -NO ONE IS WORTHY OF RESPECT SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

    -RESPECT IS EARNED BY ACTIONS AND BY DEEDS, NOT BY BIRTHRIGHT.

    -THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE ON EARTH, DECENT AND INDECENT. THOSE WHO ARE DECENT WILL FLORISH, THOSE WHO ARE NOT WILL PERISH.

    -NO LAWS LAID DOWN BY A BODY OF GOVERNMENT CAN MAKE ONE PERSON LIKE ANOTHER.

    A FREE AND JUST SOCIETY MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS EVEN IF IT MEANS SHEDDING THE BLOOD OF ITS CITIZENS. THE WILLINGNESS OF CITIZENS TO LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR THE BELIEF IN FREEDOM IS A CORNERSTONE OF TRUE DEMOCRACY; WITHOUT THAT WILLINGNESS THE STRUCTURE OS SOCIETY WILL SURELY CRUMBLE AND FALL INTO THE ASHES OF HISTORY.

    THEREFORE:

    -ALONG WITH THE INALIENABLE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, AND THE INALIENABLE RIGHT TO PERSONAL PROTECTION, A STRONG SKILLED, AND WELL-EQUIPPED MILITARY IS ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAINING A FREE SOCIETY.

    -A STRONG MILITARY ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR "ALLIES," ALLOWING THE SOCIETY TO FOCUS ON THE NEEDS OF ITS CITIZENS.

    -THE BUSINESS OF CITIZENS IS NOT THE BUSINESS OF THE WORLD UNLESS THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS ARE INFRINGED UPON BY OUTSIDE FORCES.

    -THE DUTY OF THOSE WHO LIVE IN A FREE SOCIETY IS CLEAR, PERSONAL FREEDOM IS NOT NEGOTIABLE.

    IN CONCLUSION:

    WE WHO SUPPORT THE TRI-STATE PHILOSOPHY AND LIVE BY ITS CODE AND ITS LAWS PLEDGE TO DEFEND IT BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. WE PLEDGE TO WORK FAIRLY AND JUSTLY TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN A SOCIETY IN WHICH ALL CITIZENS ARE TRULY FREE AND ARE ABLE TO PURSUE PRODUCTIVE LIVES WITHOUT FEAR AND WITHOUT INTERVENTION.

    It seems that any redoubt on the lower 48 may be doomed and Alaska might be the best bet.

    Not real funny as I am willing to bet most countries we have assisted including those attached to the royal socialist U.K. would be seen no where and would be hiding waiting for the ball to drop on them. I have allot of disdainment for her majesties assimilations and her redneck cousins who yap all over the world bashing everyones cultures yet when SHTF they are not seen there are even those whom belong to this socialist island that cower and gave up their guns freely not many I think out there should be commenting on the U.S.A when they gave there rights away why we are fighting for freedom. Even liberals here in their twisted way fight for freedom that her Majesties people just give up without any fight, but are the first to whine and cry when the big nasty orges in Europe wreak havoc on her people and they reach out and yet again we save them.

    Oh man...relax....you're taking what I said far too seriously. Putin would annex Alaska in a heartbeat if he could, but even Putin isn't that stupid that he would take his chances against Bruce and his doughty neighbours. Vladimir knows there's no future, being the main ingredient in Bruce's crab traps. I for one wouldn't be enjoying any Schadenfreud if Vlad the bare chested horseman was to wrest possession of Alaska from the USA....though it may make for a flag led economic boom for a while.

    You do know that quote came from an actress who was performing a parody of her, right? I have to ask because a large percentage of Americans still believe Palin said she could see Russia from her house. It's effing embarrassing that such a large percentage of our population is so ignorant of what happens beyond Kim Kardashian's enormous backside, and honestly it's a bell weather of our impending demise.
