The fiscal cliff and you.

Republicans are at fault.
No, no no. Democrats are at fault.
The real answer is…
Not only are the politicians and the bureaucracies at fault, but you and I are at fault as well. As being the duly appointed government of this republic WE THE PEOPLE have a responsibility a civic duty to ensure we keep in check our representatives. This entails our observance and participation in the political process.
By refusing these people their tyrannical laws we can defeat them.

The link is to a site on jury nullification. I would suggest really studying not only jury nullification but all Constitutional law and supreme court decisions.
Like Marbury V. Madison. Illegal laws are illegal.
Without performing our duty, without taking any responsibility we encourage the very mentality that has lead to the situation we are in.
Like children, those in representative roles must be shown their boundaries and disciplined when they act badly. That is, they must be fired(recall election/vote) or not re elected.
Career politicians must not exist.
I would suggest not paying politicians as they are performing a public duty and if they do get paid they should only be paid a minimum amount.
By not wanting to comment or take notice of politics you are not practising good survival technique. just ask the Katrina and Sandy survivors about that.
In order to “survive” you must be legally allowed to survive. Politics and survival while our representation base is still intact are intimately intertwined.
If we do go over the fiscal cliff and SHTF we will by necessity be facing a new unknown to us situation. If you’ve been to a third world nation you would be able to know, but knowing something is not living it. People say we need to change. We do. We need to take back our position as the politicians and the let the representatives represent us in a Constitutional manner.
More latter.
I hope this give you a little to think about for now though.
It is what’s on my mind for right now.

Survival and news. News is survival.

In this blog I will do survival gear reviews and commentary on news.
Different views on survival gear and methodology only serves to broaden our horizons which isn’t a bad thing. You may disagree with what I write. And that’s fine. Our differing views make life interesting. However we all must acknowledge that both of our points of view unless outright dangerous maybe viable.
As for the news. I have seen the news gloss over some pretty serious issues and not dig as they should to reveal the truth. This upsets me greatly. I want people to know that baby bush okay-ed the sexual torture of children. I want people to know that Obama aides foreign and domestic enemies of the Republic. I think that, those issues are very important.
Both those are my only two goals for this blog. I may insert some politics here and there but I’m mainly about survival and intel ala news and public information. Or information made public via whistle blowers.
