Where Do We Circle The Wagons?
By: Tom Chatham
As I mentioned in a previous article, we are being overwhelmed with one crisis after another in rapid fire succession. This is meant to keep everyone off balance and prevent any meaningful defense by the population. Before we can react to one crisis another rears its ugly head and diverts our attention causing many to ignore the recent crisis for the new one. Its all planned that way.
So how do we defeat this plan? We cannot fight every crisis with the hope of winning. We can only try to see the bigger picture and build a wall that can keep the problems far enough away from us to carry on with our own agenda.
The final protective line that we have to protect ourselves is the right to bear arms. Without this, we have no defenses against those who mean to destroy what we now have. That being said, the right to bear arms is not necessarily the ground we need to hold in and of itself.
The most logical place to draw our line is at the county line. This creates an area small enough to defend from many different threats but large enough to enable life to continue as we wish. The ability to control the county government and the position of sheriff is where Americans need to circle the wagons.
The ability to control the local government gives the community the ability to resist any state and federal regulations and laws they see as a threat to their well being. The ability to decide what regulations to implement in the community can preserve and protect individual and property rights from outside interests that wish to destroy them. The sheriff provides the legitimate law enforcement authority within the county that can stop the enforcement of destructive policies by outside enforcers working against the community.
But why the county level? This is the last line of defense against outside forces before they get to your front door. Local government is the only level that has daily contact with those it works for and can feel the ire of taxpayers immediately and directly. By controlling the county government and sheriff, communities provide themselves with an island of sanity that they control. The county community has the ability to produce at least some of the necessities they need such as food. They have the benefit of collective security in the form of a police department and services such as medical and fire. They have the ability to utilize an alternative local currency. The community has the benefit of drawing on the skills of the community as a whole.
While most states have diverse groups that can lean left or right and tend to pull against one another, individual counties tend to have a majority of one or the other making a consensus much easier. Those leaning left will likely seek government control and solutions to problems while those leaning right will have more individualistic tendencies that steer them toward local solutions and control. It is the right of center counties that hold the best hope of maintaining a functional economy and society when the system fails in some way. Conservative communities also tend to hold more traditional values that help to maintain law and order during emergencies. The majority of liberals hold the idea that almost nothing is taboo and this allows them to be opportunists and do bad things that society holds as wrong but they see as justified leading to a breakdown in law and order many times.
It is for these reasons that the more conservative counties need to be the ground that is held against those seeking to radically change the nation. Keep in mind the problem-reaction-solution plan that the radicals in the U.S. now use to implement their agenda. By denying the radical elements a foothold in your county you will maintain individual and property rights to a larger degree. From a county level you have a legal structure to fight off unwanted attacks on liberties and freedoms that those in some circles wish to obliterate for the greater good.
This is one of the things you need to look at where you live or intend to go. You need to determine if the residents in this area are right of center and willing to defend their rights as individuals. It is in these areas that you stand the best chance to hold the line against radical change that will undermine yours and future generations.
One only needs to look at progressive areas of the country and see the governments and taxpayers being bled to death by these liberal ideas. They constantly call for more taxes and more government subsidies to maintain the system. They expect someone else to solve the inherent problems with the system as it is as they continue the status quo. The free flow of money is the only thing that keeps these areas together in good times and in desperate times when the cash flow stops they have no plan to fall back on except brute force and tyrannical rule. It is for these reasons that these locations must be abandoned to their ultimate fate.
The only way to insure stability in the future when the system breaks down is for the county institutions to be independent from outside funding sources. This requires the takeover of local government by those that understand the threat and are willing to take measures to reduce the potential damage in the crisis to come. It will depend on these people to educate the community and determine a course of action to limit the damage from a crumbling system.
Dangers are imbedded into county functions by the radical globalists on the left and the right. They make the local government dependant on outside money just as they make the individual dependant on government supports and once this takes root, it is difficult to end just as drug addicts find it difficult to stop the habit that is slowly killing them. The dealer owns the addict just as radical government entities own the recipients of government money. They know this and is the reason they fight tooth and nail to continue funding programs that do more harm than good and prove to be wasteful.
While this article deals mainly with the physical world there is another realm that must go hand in hand with these actions. Those that believe in something can endure far longer than those that believe in nothing. The ultimate victory will only happen when those who wage the good fight have made their peace with God and carry his word in their heart and wear his resolve as armor. Victory in the end must encompass the return to traditional values and rejection of the perverted lifestyles and pure evil institutions we have created. The physical land that is defended must also encompass Christian values if we are to have any future.
This is the ground that must be defended at all costs to insure the constitutional principles that made us cohesive and prosperous will continue in the future. When you ask what power an individual county can hope to wield you only need to remember this tidbit from history.
North Carolina, May 20, 1775
Mecklenburg today became the first county in America to declare its independence from Britain. The safety committee of Mecklenburg, formed to carry out the will of the Continental Congress, took this radical step in response to the British attack on colonists in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, last month. The committee called for the election of military officers, declared all colonial constitutions void and said that any person who accepted an office from the crown was an “enemy to his country.”
History may not repeat but it does rhyme. The county level of government is where people can make the most difference in the final outcome. Enough counties can control the state, and enough states can control the national government. This is the battle ground. This is where we need to circle the wagons and dig in for the fight that is to come and if it ends in failure at least you can say you did your best.
