Individuals… taking individual stands on small, local issues. Finding people who agree with you, one person at a time, and discussing principles and what it means to be an American. This is what we need.
Joining groups, plotting ideas on web sites, blogs and social networks and even writing our representatives will never work as effectively as finally getting up the nerve to venture out in the non-virtual world, meeting and getting to know five of your neighbors.
If/when something drastic happens, and the internet is shut down, and the riots begin and martial law is considered… what are you and your family going to do? Do you have a plan? Do you know your neighbors? Are they friends or foes?
If you live in the country, do you know that your neighbors hold similar beliefs and ideas to you, or are they going to turn you in because they know you have guns in the house and call yourself a patriot? (You see… this puts you on the Domestic Terrorist list and if your neighbor is a member of the new ACORN national defense corpse… they’ll have no choice but to report you.)
And if you live in the city…. God bless you. You’re on your own not matter what I say here.
But what if you KNOW FOR A FACT that five of your neighbors are on the same page as you? What if you KNOW that you are all looking out for each other? Not just home defense… but cooperative political and economic survival. What if each of those five neighbors, knows five other neighbors? And so on.
America is coming to a point where one national disaster will tear us at the seams. So many people today are addicted to the virtual friend world and absolutely ignorant of their physical reality. The advantage will go to those who are grounded in reality, not in virtual relationships and networks.
The advantage will go to those who know who among them are friends and foes.
And NO ONE will know anything, until he or she, as an individual, takes a stand… and finds that someone else will stand with them. And then another, and another….
