Tick Tick Tick
Every day the divide within America continues to grow. I have seen more articles and comments embracing the idea and many converts who now realize it will eventually come to a parting of ways.
On one hand I am not yet completely convinced we will actually make it to a final line of division on political matters. Certainly if things continue down the path they are taking it will. Those of us in the Red States have switched our allegiance of legitimate government to our counties and State governments exclusively as they attempt to protect us from the Federal tyranny. Only to see those actions attacked and defeated in the Federal activist courts but we now know who is on our side.
We must watch Colorado, California and to a lesser extend New York carefully. The violation of God given Constitutional rights is strongest in those states. They are Blue States but have a decidedly Conservative landmass held in thrall by the Urban enclaves. As yet I have seen no real instances of LEO raids or any actual moves to take anything from the citizens trapped in those States. It is possible I have missed some and I have seen a few that appeared to be going down those lines but then had other issues that brought some questions into play.
While the overall eventuality is sinking in to many people there are still other storms that continue to brew. The economy is still in the lead for being the most pressing and imminent danger we face. An economic breakdown would severely limit the Federal governments ability to act and may even bring a more peaceful defacto divide with it.
Either way it is easy to see the notion of a disconnect between Red and Blue is growing. Take articles like this one.
Single Party Rule at State Level is Dividing America
The article isn't the crux as much as the comments are. They show a disconnect is brewing. There was a similar article over at American Thinker recently with the same type of comments.
Under the circumstances there is little we preppers can do but continue to work towards the most sustainable living and food production we possibly can. We must protect ourselves but we also must realize we may be called on to help support those who would defend our way of life as well and we MUST be prepared to do that. One way or another we cannot prep just for ourselves but must keep an eye to what comes after just as much as during.
I believe the recent IRS scandal and other illegal activities along with the complete and happy acceptance by the followers of the Left that illegally targeting Conservatives is just and proper clearly shows we are already in a state of division and hatred so deep no reconciliation is possible.
I also believe a huge share of Conservatives have already lost all faith and trust in the Federal government but it will take a bit more time to filter up to the local and State governments.
The real question is will the whole house of cards remain in place long enough for the politics to bring it down or will something else beat em to it? One way will make it easier than another.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
