This nation, the nation I served is not worth my breath anymore. Whether what he says is true or not, this life was needless spent.
Not what I served to protect. I wish I never served.

    Buck up! We now know exactly who we can trust. The answer is no one who is currently in DC (AG's office, CIA, FBI,) to name a few.

      I'm sick of the fight. There is no foundation, no commonality of ideas to build on, even with my own offspring, and I've been actively trying for so long.
      What is the point of knowing who the enemy is when no one in a position to do anything cares to act?

      I was never pro-Trump. But I could appreciate and respect some of what he was doing, and he was getting results. It's like choosing to eat from the cat box when steak is on the table...yup, that's the America we live in.

        Well when I was targeted wrongly by certain individuals who wanted to shut me down, I started writing a book. I can now finish it seeing I know how they work.

          Old road for me. 3 books, dozens of commentary articles, a short stint in talk radio, and actively opposing protestors in Phoenix for a variety of unAmerican demands. Not sure what more I can do or even care to do. I'm on the downhill slope. The lessons left to teach are in the zone of self discovery because useful idiots don't listen. Once the Consitution is fully and openly discarded when the reality hits there will be no way to change things short of blood. I wont be around.

            A copy of my letter to my useless senator. I agree that the inevitable is going to happen and we will morph into a socialist country. The left
            realized long ago that their future is with the youth - not the adults. I will do what I can to educate my kids and grand kids but the odds are overwhelming. Who will be John Galt?.

            Senator Gary Peters
            Hart Senate Office Building
            Suite 724
            Washington, DC 20510

            Dear Senator Peters

            I have enclosed my assessment of the recent election and its implications for our society. Now that the Democratic Party has control of all three branches of government I fear for our country. I am seventy five years old so the intended and unintended consequences will happen after I am long gone. However, my kids and grand kids will have to deal with these consequences. Sadly, legislators are only held accountable at the ballot box. As Tyler stated, “the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy.” At least we lasted 250 years .This will be your legacy unless you step up to the plate. But then, Congress takes care of it’s own so you will be unaffected.
            As I see it we are in “Hunger Games meets Brave New World and Animal Farm in 1984 where Atlas Shrugged is no longer fiction.”
            I realize this letter will fall on deaf ears but at least you cannot say you were never warned.


            Sincerely,



            Ben H. Colmery III

            U.S.A.
            Born July 4th, 1776
            Died January 20th, 2021
            RIP

              Ben C you’re in my District. I voted for the Black Guy. Peters is a tax fattened hyena. He will be absolutely ZERO help. Between him and Stabacow.
              I count in life one of my finest moments being getting chewed out by Stabacow’s Chief of Staff. I shut the power off on a conference she was holding. Oh my God the entitled whining I got to listen to. It was either that or let the magic smoke out of the transformer feeding the hotel. These so-called servants truly think they are our betters. If only I hadn’t been working for someone else at the time. I would have enjoyed laying into her. “You do NOT shut the power off on a United States Senator!” Whatever....call my boss and get out of my way.
              Enjoy the Decline

    Reminds me of when I first heard Stephan Molyneoux and saw his early video "History of Your Enslavement" - where he points out we're just livestock and the government is the farmer. Of course they'll shoot a girl in the neck. Stop kidding yourself. They'll blow your wife's brains out if there's a lack of compliance. You don't f*ck with these people.

    During this whole BLM movement of the past year or so I was reminded to give my son the lecture. "If you're ever stopped by the police you need to be very polite. 'Yes sir, yes maam...what can I do to help you?' They can take you out in a heartbeat just because they're having a bad day. The goal is to get away from them quickly and peacefully and make it home." This is what all those claiming special victim status were saying they were having to tell their kids. My son looks like Barron Trump. Doesn't matter. This isn't about color...all this crap we were seeing protested this past year. It's about force and abuse. It transcends color. But a vast majority of Americans don't seem to have two damned brain cells to rub together.

    I expect no progress anymore in America. Just moronic violence. I was discussing this with a friend the other day. This past week I was watching that movie "First Man", about Neil Armstrong. If you haven't seen it...see it. It reminded me of how far we've come in America with technology in my lifetime because my very earliest memory is probably my dad saying "Listen to this on our radio. This man is going to step on the moon, son." Now we've all got computers for phones, the internet, etc. But are our lives better? Is our existence any safer? Are we enlightened as a people? Of course not. Why is that? Because we never bothered to learn how to think. Trust me...that's no accident. We really are just livestock.

    Sorry for the long rant. 2020 was a f'ing disaster. I had worked hard my entire career to help mankind and make enough dough to be comfortable. I generated solutions that nobody wanted at first because of various stupid excuses. Then the pandemic crisis got as bad as I predicted and now everybody wants a piece of my time because everything has turned to shit. Zero foresight from people who needed to have it. Now I put in 12 hour days all the time but I'm getting too old and tired to continue to do that. Don't expect anything to improve in America...I'm glad I'm heading to the Gulch.

      Thank you for sharing your perspective. I am familiar with Molyneux's video. He is spot on.
      Correct. The police are not your friend. Have as little contact with them as possible.
      I agree -- much of the modern day technology simply satiates the needs of the Right Now.
      Things were better 40+ years ago (I was there) in that what you saw - perceived through senses - was much closer to reality. Nowadays, much of what is perceived is a sort of hologram -- fake news, fake science, fake pandemics, fake systemic racism, hell -- even a huge glop of the population thinks (well no, they don't think, they believe) that man never set foot on the moon.

      I hope that you can put those 12 hour days out to pasture and get to your Gulch. The sooner the better. My personal Gulch consists of getting time on the snow (climbing), road trips ... sometimes with minimal planning ... and tuning out from all the spewage that is pushed out to the cattle in terms of MSM.

      Please keep on sharing your perspectives. I think that wisdom is the accumulation of productive perspectives.

      I really think the answers are yes. There are obviously huge problems. But things really are good.

      Don't put in 12 hours a day if it's for those people telling you "this is a high-profile career make-or-break project." Money talks; BS walks. Despite all the problems, there are still a lot of fun and lucrative opportunities in the US.

        Yeah, a small fortune can be made - rigging an election, tracking people via rna strands slipped into the miracle vaccine for a mostly harmless virus and then tracked by cellphone apps and updated cell towers.I'm certain the brown shirts loved the creative opportunities posed by Hitler?

        Just image all the fun and profit one can have developing the IT framework to round people up to go to isolation camps where they can be re-educated all because they refused to be inoculated.

    Yesterday not withstanding, Trump can do a good thing for this country by releasing and forcing (somehow) as much information as possible about as many of the things that have emitted a stench during the past 4 years. Do EVERYTHING he can to get all of this into the public. As much about the Biden crime family and the CCP as possible.....among others. Yea, I know VP Hairyass will take control. Just lay bare all the info on the dummycrats as possible so that we have some chance of surviving.

            I know...that's my current push with my son..."Don't be there!" He really has taken in by all this political debate and malarkey. But, I'm trying to tell him to not be involved. It ends badly all the time. You'll get mugged by a dozen transexual antifa members just because you're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      "It was the sacrifices that you and your contemporaries made that at least got us to this point."

      Unless AJAshinoff is a lot older than I'd guess, I must respectfully disagree. The relevant sacrifices were made by those who fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and (arguably) World War 2. America's other wars were fought to defend the rights of foreigners, violate the rights of foreigners, or violate the rights of Americans. (Reasonable people can disagree as to which of these applies to which wars.)

      The readiness of the military to fight in defense of our liberties ensures that they don't have to actually do so, and for this they deserve our respect and thanks.

        @Steven-Wells It's appreciated.
        The only sacrifice I made was the temporary willing suspension of my Constitutional rights. Unlike many, and I'd have it no other way but voluntary, I stood up willing to risk my safety and even give my life if called on.Naive? Perhaps, but I did love Reagan and I was wrapped up in the sentiment of the time. Besides it was a good thing for me to do from a selfish standpoint.
        @Rex_Little While I didn't ask for anyone thanks and I don't make more of my peacetime service than what it was (chess game with the Soviets), I do appreciate the tip of the hat even if I didn't serve in a war or skirmish or policing act. I was fortunate.

      Were those sacrifices sham sacrifices as in chess where one gives up a more valuable piece for a less valuable piece with the belief that that action will gain a great advantage in the game later? If not they were a giving up of the good for some lesser value as is done in voting for the lesser of the evils rather than voting for the good. I consider Rand's definition of sacrifice to be right and the call for sacrifice by politics and religion to be evil. Do you think that giving up help for your family at the expense of some altruistic goal is moral? It is immoral and in the long run for a country, dangerous.

    I hear you. This is the beginning of the End. There will be only two outcomes: either this nation is destroyed by socialists and we spend the next 50 years trying to win back our nation, or there will be some event which exposes these liars and hypocrites to their own destruction. I prepare for the former while hoping for the latter.

        The "Move along. Nothing to see here." is my bitter summary of what has transpired as I listen to Star Wars music. I started out in an The Empire Just Struck mood and have improved dramatically over the last couple of hours. I wonder if Ayn Rand would have liked Star Wars music. When she writes about Halley's Concertos, I think of Star Wars music. I know that Ayn Rand would have objected to the Force!

    The readers (and comment participants) of this board should know that the "carbon core" principal of the US is actually the principal of the individual. When OP states he had served a nation with a failed philosophy, I too am disappointed. but it is not the US as a current philosophical collective you served, is it not your belief in what it stands for: mankind"s unalienable right to exist? We in the valley of gulch still exist, we are still here. We still think, proceed, work. AJAshinoff, did you serve the corporate US, or did you serve your right to live? And you know your service was righteous. Because we know what the "carbon core" principle of the US is, three entities: You, me and the next guy/gal. John Galt's character placed his life in jeopardy for that same principle. A principle that will never die until the last human gives up on himself.

      What goes on after we depart this existence is what matters more as time goes by. Life is fleeting regardless of what anyone believes comes next. Preparing the way for those you sire is ultimately paramount because, again, your life/existence is finite and fleeting.

      The principals penned to parchment by the Founding Fathers are among the most valued. I served for me - the educational opportunities and benefits afforded me...and to see the world a bit. It wasn't until later in life that I sought greater value for the time when I willingly did not live as a free man.
      In my opinion, free will is the apex of existence. The individuals right to determine his own course, his own beliefs, his own thoughts, his own 'enough' in life unimpeded by others. The society each of us is born into takes from that free will to maintain a semblance of order, offering security by adding constraints. That degree is unavoidable if you choose to remain in a society . The minimal government envisioned by the Framers to ensure as much free will as feasible within society is long dead. Now they seek to define each individuals existence by stripping almost all free will. Unacceptable. Intolerable.

      There is a difference between giving up on the world around you and giving up on yourself, no?

    I’m 77 and not ready to throw in the towel at all. For me this is a rerun. My first presidential vote was for Goldwater in 1964. He was our “last hope” and when he lost to Lyndon Johnson in a landslide, the country was “doomed”, it was “all over”. Then the Dems overplayed their hand, Johnson served only one term of his own, and four of the next five presidents were Republicans.

    The playing field has changed, but the game is not over. The Supreme Court is in conservative hands. Election security is now a front-and-center issue, and will likely improve by the next round in 2022. The entertainment Industry and big media are hard left, but that has been largely true since the 1950’s, and their bias is now obvious rather than hidden. Trust in government is at an all-time low. The lockdowns are becoming increasingly unpopular, and are increasingly being blamed on the Dems. Because of those same lockdowns, home schooling is making a big comeback.

    Since the Dems are now running the country, voters will hold them responsible for whatever damage they cause in the next two years. Their margin in both houses of Congress is razor-thin, and can easily be reversed in 2022.

    Although there’s no guarantee that things will get better, I don’t see any reason to abandon the political and ideological battlefield just yet.

    For the first time, my husband asked if we should leave the country! That is major. I always have fought, no matter who is in office, but this election is a deal breaker. When my overeducated butclueless daughtertold me Biden did not say on camera that they had pulled off the greatest voter fraud in history, I told her I saw it with my own eyes. She is a clueless Liberartian who thinks the riots did nto happen until DC one last night. I refuse to accept her texts, she is hopeless. I am completely disgusted, part of me thinking these idiot voters and tose who did nto see this coming deserve what they get, we are old, we will not see the full brunt of it, but it is sickening. No capitalism, so self responsibility, no sceintific truth, just Commie Harris and fascism.

    There is absolutely no difference between democrats and republicans except for the letter D or R after their name. I switched to I back in 2015 because I hated the thought of being associated with either party. It made no difference at all if the republicans kept the majority in the Senate because we still have the RINOs like Romney, Murkowski and Collins plus a bunch more who would fold like a lawn chair.

    Ben_C your remarks are on the button. I did not say "money" because there is no money at this point. My own plan for the future is to toss out any unessentials I have left (not many, as I've been sorting and tossing for quite a while now. I still have too much stuff). I am nearly debt free, except for a small mortgage, I still have a few minor items to aquire, I am going Gulch in place. I fear for my grandkids, my kids will fight for them until they are no longer able to fight. I am very proud to call them my children. Some say i'm giving up, but I call it"entering survival mode". Maybe we'll all meet on the other side of the coup, but I won't hold my breath. Meanwhile. I'll read and post until they shut us down.

      Ditto for me. And I share most of the perspective offered by @AJAshinoff. I truly believe the electionS (emphasis on plural) were stolen, which speaks volumes about the state of this country. The Founders gave us the Second Amendment for times such as these, but I do not see the wherewithal from the average citizen to do anything about what we are living through. They've been fed at the trough for so many years that they don't understand they are at the slaughterhouse. Sad.

    Corporate media is entirely responsible for the state of this Republic. They have chosen a side and are very good at hiding information that a large percentage of Americans are too lazy to ask questions about, or trumpeting the communist talking points that provide cover for the rampant corruption in congress. It is my belief they are the ones to focus on, they are using advertising dollars and a myriad of other large corporations they own to attack this Nation. We can do something about that. Remember when the NFL, NBA, etc began their kneeling/ blm tactics? It did not take long for a nationwide boycott to spring up that impacted them very quickly, media is no different, choke off the funding and a very clear message is delivered. It will require organization, and the will to act locally. Boycotts are ugly... they also are very effective. Media must be attacked economically, we cannot make them act differently, but we can damn sure stop rewarding them for it with our money. We will be putting together a public page listing local / national media owned companies and local / national advertisers, along with contact info. Pissed off? Need a project? They provide cover for corrupt politicians and communists, we crimp their wallet and maybe they let a little sunshine out. What, exactly do we have to lose?

    I no longer think this country is worth my allegiance any more. This "election" did it for me. I think the 74 million who voted and were not represented should protest and present reasonable demands that Biden should have to live with.
    1) Leave Trumps Immigration policies in place
    2) No new taxes or elimination of Trump's tax cuts
    3) No new regulations or elimination of Trump's regulation cuts.
    4) No national lockdowns
    5) No mail in ballots
    6) No voting without picture ID

    If The politicians wont at least NOT do these things, there will be hell to pay in the future
