uniquely Massachusetts

several times recently a comment has been run across that state specific groups dealing in these our subjects should contain information specifically pertaining to said state,,,,this has me stumped...my geographic/demographic differs as dramatically from the left side as it does to the cape,,,we cover the spectrum, as do most other states, from metropolis to podunk....our laws and lawmakers(many of them) do tend to be on top side of kennedys yacht, and are as tuned into our life as we are to theirs,,being minimal to nonexistent ..lots of people throw out the word revolution, resistance,,,good words in and of themselves,but i'm thinking not along the revolution scenario,,,reclamation, or, restoration, to me, is far more appropriate with what needs doing,,,a revolution can only be waged against a duly authorised governmental system(i think),,,and given that through the years our PTB have quite effectively removed our input in establishing the present ruling class...it is painfully evident that we no longer have a government that is "of the People", here in this State,hence not to be considered legitimate,,doubt we would be heard..whereas a "restoration" might could be an answer to regaining what has been stripped from us while we were sleeping and drinking and spending ourselves stupid...maybe there is merit in attempting to use the system to change the system,,i tend to doubt that this would be very effective,,,flashback to Walden Pond tho,,and ideas emanating from one Mass. citizen, while making small, and, at the time, seemingly radical and revolutionary precepts come to light,,,,ones that went on to inspire great men to perform great deeds,,ie Gandhi,King,,,,,as i recall, and i could be in error,,Civil Disobedience,while non-violent, is, if acted out with sufficient numbers, a very powerful force,,,organising and trusting enough people would be a task gargantuan,,but think if it could be coalesced into a movement,,(bigger even than alices restaurant massacree,;),which could NOT be ignored,,,even failing in obtaining change, it would certainly shake the old status quo of we the peoples sleeping brethren,,mayhaps enough to begin anew, or carry on in the spirit of our Constitution(the terrorist papers)...all this being conditional, naturally, as to plans made by said PTB,perhaps anticipating such actions.NWO coming? pandemic?invasion?,,,we don't know for a fact,empirically, that those scenarios will ever present themselves,,,we do know, as we stand,,things are deteriorating too rapidly to do nothing...personally, these days, i would not enjoy armed conflict on a scale that would involve people that aren't ready,,the innocent ones, kids,who surely have the great misfortune of potentially being collateral damage,,,,consider, too, the ramifications of economic collapse,,and being isolated from others with the wherewithal to regroup and form free areas....how much repression,,militarily,,could or would be brought to bear,,i have reason to doubt American troops would be complicit in repressive actions,,and if foreign troops were used...you'd have a LOT more fence sitters ready and willing(hopefully able),,to engage any OPFOR,for that is what they would be,,on OUR soil
and as always, my disclaimer,,,i could be wrong about this,but,,,
always open to critique,,thats how i learn,,,have a good'un,,and have your own thoughts,,,whaddaya think?

I have been thinking the very same things. What can we, the average person, do to make a difference in waking up people and letting our state government know we are VERY unhappy and want our rights back...
There has been some rumor about a "Tea Party" taking place all over the country, but on further investigation those are being financed and organized by some very radical groups. This means that they won't be as likely to be taken seriously by the gov..
A "Tea Party" is a very good idea, as is any protest that is large enough to garner major media attention. Said protest has to be well organized, with a main goal and theme. That's the good ting about having interconnected groups with the Preppers Network.

I like both those words reclamation and restoration. I'm going to give this some thought and maybe do a post about it myself,..

Thanks for the inspiration

Erik, this has really got me thinking....Don't worry too much about being stumped with the state specific issues, that's only 1/3rd of the equation: "State" The other 2 parts being; "preppers" (the general prepping issues that we're all good at discussing that must continue) and "Network" (Ideas and discussions about how we can network together and communicate off grid i.e; HAM radio, CB, meetup groups, etc..) As far as state specific issues go, you are right, Massachusetts is a very diverse state, even more so than most. You have some of the most honest, hard working freedom loving farmers on one end of the spectrum and some of the most corrupt scum bag politicians on the other end. You also are the birth place of the original "Boston Tea Party" Not to mention the history in the fight for freedom. Maybe it's just a matter of knowing where to start. Maybe cover some topics about that tea party and what some of the "colonial terrorists" were all about. You have history that people must know about, and as we all know, History does repeat itself. Maybe we can make Massachusetts famous again for freedom with this Reclamation idea you had. Like I did with the American Preppers Network, I'm going to take this idea and run with it, giving you credit for coming up with it first of course. Maybe some day in the spirit of the "Declaration of Independence" we can have a document titled the "Reclamation of Independence" seeing as how we've lost our independence to the NWO. Keep up the good work Erik....You really got me thinking on this one.

I cannot wait to see how the idea of a "Reclamation of Independence" pans out. Perhaps a statement from each state in the national prepper's network, starting with Massachusetts?

American Prepper said...

Let me work on this and see what we can come up with

Anonymous said...

any statement issuing forth from MA preppers needs be equitably and unanimously agreed upon by those whose names are listed as contributors...and possibly include verbiage of said members

If I may, just to be clear, the members to which you are speaking would be... the Mass Preppers Forum members?

I'm sorry, I forgot the link:

If I may, I found a very interesting article of an accounting by a Massachusetts farmer in 1786. I think that this story may apply to this blog. I found it inspiring.
