boycott the election

One more time, someone rolls out the old “boycott the vote”. I’ve heard that frustrated sales pitch for over a decade. The claim is that withdrawing your permission will make the fascism go away. Absolutely myopic at best; more likely fully blind to reality. Currently 70% of the adults do not vote. The voting 30% split something like 16% for the next ruler, 13% for the loser and 1% for the independent spirits who ran on their integrity because they believed in something so strongly they put their time and money where their mouths were. The media played it as if it were a two-way race. Of course it did, it is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the same organization that […]

Constitution Day speech

I was one of the invited speakers at today’s Constitution Day Event on the Idaho Capital building steps. There were many great speeches. Almost all of them were heartfelt and strongly backed by long-term actions of the speakers. Here are my notes. I deviated only slightly from them in my presentation. Designed into our Constitution are many limits to an overwhelming STATE In the Constitution, the states retain all but strictly limited, delegated tasks 10th Amendment center and State sovereignty champions are winning some skirmishes here and there I ran for Idaho governor in 2006 and 2010 with the retained authority of the several states in mind Every officer, every official, every agent of the US government swears an oath […]

ham radio

As an integral part of our posse, and any disaster response preparation, radio is a consideration. Internet, wireless phones, land-lines, satellite, power grid and more are vulnerable in many situations. Ham radio is older than almost any electronic communication and very well populated with people and equipment that are prepared for just about any telecommunications failure they can dream up … which, by the way, is well beyond anything you can dream up. It is also surprisingly versatile, even with entry-level equipment and beginner-level skills. Having the expertise and tools of ham operators on your emergency response team is fundamental. Being a licensed and at least somewhat knowledgeable radio operator is practical as well as basic good citizenship. The Ada […]

site improvements

I spent last weekend at the Fort Boise Gun Show. I have boiled my high-priority activities down to the three most important for our liberty in Ada County. That was how I set up our table and that was how I presented to those who stopped by. If we have and support a Constitutional Sheriff, we have liberty. If we have strong neighborhood posses, we have liberty. If every current and past military and police person was an Oath Keeper, we have liberty. Knowing my websites didn’t do such a good job of depicting those priorities, I undertook to improve on that. I had to learn some more technical stuff, but that’s really a good thing as it keeps the […]

victimless crimes

I was interested in a couple of things you said on your site and in your flyers about lawful violations and crimes with real victims. What do you mean by that, and what are your ideas to fix the problem? – Mike Demory I have spent the last 15 years studying economics, sociology, government and laws from a perspective that is quite different than what is pushed by our government-controlled schools. Some of it is called Austrian economics and Libertarian politics, but I know it is too different to be well understood and accepted comfortably by all. So I have concluded that The Constitution is the foundation for our liberty, and that most people can embrace using that as our […]

Sheriff job definition

The Office of the County Sheriff dates back to at least 900 AD in England. The Sheriff had always been charged with protecting the rights and property of the sovereign. When the colonists came to North America, the Sheriff came too. He was still to protect the king’s interests. After the American Revolution, the Citizens became sovereign as individuals. The Office of County Sheriff remained. At that point, it became the duty and authority of the Sheriff to protect the Rights and property of the Sovereign Citizens – from any unlawful action. The Citizens then became the Sheriff’s boss. They still are. An invaluable reference tool on the authority of the County Sheriff is Anderson on Sheriffs: A Treatise on […]
