Is It Time to Leave America, While You Still Can?

The Common Sense Show

 

One prominent talk show host is telling his listeners to get out of the country because the Denver Post is reporting that there are 200,000 Russian troops in America. I have previously reported on government documents which demonstrate that FEMA reached a bilateral agreement with Russia to bring in 15,000 Russian troops. I also believe that there are Russian sleeper cells located throughout America based upon reports from Russian defectors and eyewitnesses such as Dr. Susan Helman of Gatlinburg, TN. But to leave the country based on the erroneous reports of a talk show host would be a gross mistake.

The Russian media immediately interviewed me after I reported on this story in an attempt to discredit me and cover their true intentions. However, there is no report from the Denver Post claiming 200,000 Russian troops are in America. There will be no direct military invasion of the United States until some other things occur such as a series of false flag attacks, declaration of martial law and the use of foreign troops (e.g. Russia, China) to quell any civil disturbances following the false flag attacks or following a currency collapse. Following the complete subjugation of the American people, there could be an invasion of the US by Russia and China if WWIII were to break out. But leaving the country for the hysterical claim of 200,000 Russians ready to invade in a moments notice, would prove to be a fool’s errand.

Are there other reasons to leave the United States and take up residency abroad? There does appear to be several valid reasons to do so. For the time being, put aside your English/Russian dictionary as we process the reasons for possibly wanting to expatriate.

Many Have Already Left

An expatriate, who has left America for the greener pastures of Germany, has written to me over a dozen times telling me to get out of America while I still can. I freely admit, that on the balance sheet, the reasons to leave outweigh the reasons to stay. And the reasons to move our children away from the growing tyranny in this country are even more numerous. However, our enemy calls themselves the New World Order for a reason. It may be possible to move to a place like Norway and get some temporary relief, but in reality, you would only be staying one step ahead of the burning bridge.

Last year over a 155,000 Americans expatriated to foreign countries, mostly for economic reasons. I have bad news for these people.You expats may have temporarily escaped high taxes and over regulation from the federal government, however, when, and not if, the dollar collapses, all foreign currencies will collapse as well and you will be trapped in a foreign land. I do, however, agree that there are some valid reasons, at least on the surface for leaving.

Do It For The Kids

At this point in time, about half of all recent college graduates are working at jobs that do not even require a college degree. The number of Americans in the 16 to 29 year old age bracket with a job declined by 18 percent between 2000 and 2010. Incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation since the year 2000. In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees. One poll discovered that 29 percent of all Americans in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket are still living with their parents. Overall, approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents according to Time Magazine.

America is no longer the land of opportunity as the United States is not even in the top ten. In fact, the United States only ranks 20th in terms of overall gross pay! There are very sound economic reasons to look at when deciding on whether you should leave the country. Young adults who are degreed and/or skilled in fields such as engineering or information technology skills, are really wasting their time by working in the United States. Eight of the world’s ten highest-paying countries for information technology (IT) managers are in Western Europe, according to a new survey by Mercer Human Resource Consulting. The survey found that Swiss managers are paid the most, followed by those in Germany and Denmark. In fact, IT management is another field where U.S. workers fail to crack the top ten in income, the United States ranks 14th in IT management compensation. Even debt ridden Spain, Italy and Greece pay their IT managers more than what Americans earn on average.

 Employment

If there is a valid reason for leaving the country, the unemployment rates would seem to be a compelling reason. Unfortunately, the public does not know what the true unemployment rate is in America because the Department of Labor plays games with the numbers. For example, if you hold a real estate license, and even if you have never sold any property, you are considered to be employed by the Federal government. If your unemployment insurance expires, it is assumed that you have found employment, even if you have not. This is referred to as the discouraged worker category.

The “Alternate Unemployment Rate” more accurately reflects the current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were eliminated from official existence by the Federal government back in 1994. That estimate is added to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes the previously short-term discouraged workers.

The “U-3″ unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the BLS broadest unemployment measure, “including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment” as this group would be categorized as the underemployed. When all figures are combined, the Shadow Stats calculations are staggering as the unemployment and underemployment rate is approaching 24%!

 

However, I strongly feel that you are only delaying the inevitable by leaving. We are not just going to see an American economic collapse, we are going to witness a global collapse.

America’s Economy Could Soon Collapse

Employment issues aside, America only has to look at three economic indicators to know that we are in a lot of trouble. The budget deficit is $17 trillion dollars, unfunded (partially or otherwise) mandated social programs constitutes another $222 trillion dollars and the credit swap derivatives total between $1 quadrillion dollars to $1.5 quadrillion dollars.

When we look at Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and all the government programs that we all take for granted, the price tag is a whopping $222 trillion dollars. These numbers are going to be exacerbated and grow exponentially because the bulk of the baby boomers are entering retirement age. Even if we took every single penny that the federal government takes in and devote it to paying off these social programs, it would take 111 years to pay off this debt.

In the United States, credit swap derivatives created national debt totals of over one quadrillion dollars. That is one thousand trillion dollars! The entire GDP of the planet is estimated at $66 trillion dollars. And somehow, in the infinite wisdom of Congress in 2008, we falsely and naively believed that a $750 billion transfer of wealth (i.e., Bailout #1) was magically going to save the economy and the collective futures of the American middle class. In short, the debt created by futures speculation is approximately 16 times greater than the sum total of the entire wealth on the planet! And we think we are going to climb out of this? We could fund 1,000 bailouts and the eventual outcome will be the same, slavery by debt.

In no civilized country in the world do the banks have the right to steal money from citizen depositors. However, in America, this is already being accomplished as ex-Goldman Sachs CEO and ex-senator and ex-governor, Jon “the Don” Corzine, stole 1.2 billion dollars from secured deposits from MF Global, lied to congress about his actions and today is enjoying the fruits of his thievery. Let’s not forget that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals who just ruled that banks can steal the money of its depositors and it is legal! This would have been a SHTF moment in every other Western country, but Americans are taking this grand theft on their backsides, sipping a beer and bemoaning the performance of their favorite NFL team on this Super Bowl Sunday.

I have chronicled in a recent article that JP Morgan Chase and HSBC are making it almost impossible to wire money out of their banks into overseas accounts. Further, the IMF has announced plans to tax all bank accounts to the tune of 10% and that is just for starters. Can America be far behind? And the rich are getting richer at the expense of the middle class.

Over 50 percent of all stocks and bonds are owned by just 1 percent of the U.S. population. Additionally,  Treasury Secretary Lew is borrowing against select Federal retirement accounts. And add to these grim statistics, we have only the 51st longest life span despite spending the most money. Our kids attend schools which are ranked last in the modern world. Searching for better opportunities does make sense in light of these statistics.

Civil Liberties

Well, we may not have our health and we may not have our wealth, but at least we have our freedoms, don’t we? Nothing could be further from the truth. Our local police forces are being federalized and incidences of unwarranted police brutality are skyrocketing.

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Democracy Index 2011, the United States is tied with Romania for forty-ninth in civil liberties. Several countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway are tied for first.

With the Patriot Acts, the NDAA and several other draconian pieces of legislation designed to protect us from the boogey men we call terrorists, we have lost Habeas Corpus, we are losing our free speech rights to the United Nations and every form of due process that we once cherished under our Constitution. And if you don’t like the unfolding criminal enterprise system which suddenly appeared before our collective eyes, the bankers have rolled out a technocratic police state which would make Stalin and Hitler envious. Both the police state and impending martial law are bolstered by the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 2.2 billion rounds of high tech bullets engraved with the names of citizens who dare to oppose this tyranny! The Constitution has been destroyed and thrown on to the garbage pile of history. And only in tinhorn dictatorships and communist countries do we find this kind of criminal enterprise flourishing!

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

I have personally known a FEMA retiree and his family who have left their home for a self-contained community with like-minded alphabet soup agency personnel in order to protect their families from what is coming. Additionally, Doug Hagmann’s DHS insider contact painted a very grim picture of the deadly martial law crackdown that is coming. Same stories, different venues.  If you believe that a false flag attack is in our near future. And if you believe that brutal martial law, complete with gun confiscation, was going to take place and if you think that FEMA camps and mass executions of political undesirables was going to occur, then these would be some very valid reasons for leaving this country.

In a later article, I will expand on these thoughts as well as examine some very compelling reasons for staying in the United States through thick and thin.

    Of note, I had heard the IMF global theft story was a cover. There were many gold futures contracts up for delivery so they transferred all the money to JP Morgan. They then said the money had been stolen and declared bankruptcy so they wouldn’t have to deliver any physical gold; because essentially there is none. They are desperate to keep gold smashed down or their managed fraudulent system will collapse. Quite frankly, it is going to have to collapse.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: I AGREE WITH YOUR LAST STATEMENT. HOWEVER, THERE WERE TOO MANY VICTIMS TO NOT LEND SOME LEGITIMACY TO THE IMF STORY. WE COULD, HOWEVER, DEBATE, HOW SEVERE THE CRISIS IS.

    Amen! I left the once great USA in 2012 and it was the best move I ever made. You only appreciate freedom when you have actually experienced it. I no longer have to be worried about being groped by some TSA pedophile, jailed for collecting rainwater, harassed for using organic milk, or having a lemonade stand without a license (I know someone here that actually operated a restaurant without a license for two years). On New Year’s here you can see children in the street setting off firecrackers on the public walkways completely unsupervised. In the county where I used to live, an adult could not even purchase fireworks, let alone use them. I will agree trouble is coming everywhere; but God’s judgement will be different on different nations. I am in a country that is rapidly growing but does not have much of a middle class and the poor do not rely on government welfare. If the global economy shut down, mostly the emerging middle class and elite would take a hit, but I doubt you would see mass riots in the street because people’s EBT cards do not work. The government here has not been building FEMA camps to exterminate its people, nor does it have the high technology resources for doing it with the precision of the USA. I have debates with the expat community down with regards to whether it was the right thing to move down here given the New World Order will eventually be everywhere. At least it will take a lot more time to get down here, and will probably not be as brutal a putdown of the civilian population as the USA (to which most people agree). I also do believe God will set up sanctuaries around the world to preserve the remnant (see Revelation 12 as well as the promise to the church of Philadelphia earlier in the book), and the country I am at now has many areas that could fit the bill. If you believe the USA is Mystery Babylon, as I did, I took the Lord’s admonishment seriously to leave, even though it was a difficult decision. You should ultimately pray about it. I was prepared to go down with the ship, but God convicted me that for me to stay knowing what I know was the equivalent to suicide, which He does not condone. Sure He can protect me, but only if I am obedient. Mary and Joseph had to flee to Egypt, Moses had to flee to Midian, most of the Christians in Jerusalem were driven out to the Gentile nations, and even David at one point had to flee to live with the Phillistines (talk about irony…). It is not as difficult as you think to move. Poor Mexicans and migrant workers who have less resources than the average American move every day to the USA. But people in the USA say that they cannot afford to leave, even though they would be surprised how much cash they could raise by selling all their “stuff.” But people do not want to sell their stuff, or have their quality of living suffer (even though it actually will go up, when you consider what is coming to America). Like Lot’s wife, they do not want to flee. Do not get me wrong, God is probably directing many people to stay (like Jeremiah stayed in Jerusalem), but there are also many He is probably prompting to leave that are unwilling to listen to the Spirit because of the flesh (even patriotism can be driven by pride; if God is against this nation, it will not stand and His will trumps our desires). About two months after I left, I know someone who also left on a shoestring budget. I think the thing that finally pushed her over were her children, who she did not want to see drafted in World War III, and wanted them to have a chance of the future. It is difficult to imagine how horrible things will be. Americans have not lived in war zones. Many people who think they can just handle it, will not be able to.

    The reality of all this just hasn’t set in yet. Wait until people can’t withdraw funds from their bank accounts, inflation triples the cost of food or worse the shelves are cleaned out. You’ll see a completely different picture. It just hasn’t got bad enough yet.

    Dave my American brother ,once again you have surrounded the bullseye now it’s up to us to hit dead center,, ready aim and stay and defend your HOME . Myself and millions of others will be shoulder to shoulder with you!! Dave’s reminder it’s not called the new WORLD order for nothing. Gods word teaches that unless the days be shorten’ed no flesh will be saved, or unless Christ return there will be no one untouched by this. Somebody complained yesterday about biblical references in the replies , to answer reply what is your hope? cause in this ever changing world Gods word is the only thing that DOES NOT change, many here choose by faith hope in Christ, To all respectfully what is your hope??.

    As Mr. Hodges has pointed out, the unemployment rate, counting the long term unemployed, is about 24%. But if we count the massive numbers of people on welfare, and the able-bodied parasites on SSI and Social Security Disability, people who could and should be working and supporting themselves, the figures are much higher. For years I worked as a claims representative and eligibility worker, and the abuse of the system, aided and abetted by leftist hearing judges, is incredible. Then, even if we assume that the government work force, already bloated even before the Obaminable Hussein became King, was somehow normal, if we count the huge numbers of “workers” added in the last few years, all of them not only not producing wealth, but actively sabotaging the economy, the real unemployment rate is clearly far over 30%, possibly over 40%. We are in a depression far worse than the Great Depression; it is just temporarily hidden by fiat money and borrowed money.
    As for taxes, add up federal and state income taxes, property taxes (you do not own your home if you pay what amounts to rent to the government) and sales taxes. Then consider the hidden taxes embedded in the price of everything we buy: we pay all corporate income taxes, and the sales taxes, energy taxes, and property taxes of farmers, truckers, supermarkets, etc. The average American is paying at least thirty five to forty percent of his income in taxes, probably more…it’s just disguised so that most people are unaware of it.
    And here is the real kicker. Putin is a ruthless strong man, but not a true NWO fascist like Hussein. In Russia, people are free to home school their children; the sexual perversion agenda is not forced on the people; Christians are not persecuted; and self sufficiency (growing your own vegetables, for example) is actually encouraged. Russians have too low a birth rate to replace their population…perhaps Americans should move there.

    Is it time to leave America? Exactly where in the world would 320 Million people emigrate to? It is difficult for the average person to leave and take their possessions with them. In the overall scheme of things the amount of people leaving is miniscule. The moment there is a mad dash for the gates and cash transfers to foreign banks on even a small scale the government will simply institute capital controls. So if people are able to leave they will do so empty handed. I would be surprised if more than half a million people have the wherewithal to leave. But again, where are you going to go – South America? Argentina and other countries are imploding. Chile is the “paradise du jour” with Galt’s Gulch and all that. But there is limited (very, I’ve checked) availability. Most of these utopian communities popping up in other countries require proof of a lot of assets in order to join. And just like Americans are concerned about immigration, other countries aren’t going to stand idly by and accept an influx of people who take jobs and resources away from their own citizens. Bottom line: most people aren’t going anywhere. It is better to focus on how to live your life where you are presently.

  7. Don Was February 2, 2014 at 7:20 am

    And don’t forget, The U.S. Government and it’s corrupt agencies are making it increasingly hard to expatriate. If you “owe” the corrupt thieves in the IRS any amount of money, for example, they can block your application for a passport (if you already do not have one) the DHS is working on an “Electronic Fence” to keep Americans IN. Rather than keep Illegal Aliens OUT. I agree with Dave when he says in so many words, that there is no where to run to.

    People fail to understand that The Psychopaths who are destroying the United States and every other nation on the planet, CANNOT be reasoned with, Cannot be appeased, Mercy or Compassion are “alien concepts” to Them. “They” Are 100% self-interested, and totally Sadistic. The only cure for such demonic individuals is their destruction, not imprisonment, not exile, they are too evil and dangerous to be allowed anything other than liquidation.

    let’s not forget the build-up of middle eastern troops in the high desert military bases. these troops too have their own infrastructure (tanks, weapons, command structures, etc…) all under the guise of “training”.
    their numbers too are increasing!!

    You said, “However, I strongly feel that you are only delaying the inevitable by leaving. We are not just going to see an American economic collapse, we are going to witness a global collapse”.

    I really appreciate your insightful articles, buy think you have a blind spot when it comes to leaving. The idea that there is no escape of the inevitable seems more like a statist view.

    I left 4 years ago for South America. I don’t normally hang out with Gringos, but have developed friendships with local people. If my income gets cut off, I have places to go where I don’t have to pay rent and don’t need heating or cooling year around. If I’m hungry, I can go outside and pick some fruit, etc. It is generally tranquil here. I lost about 70 pounds of weight here and no longer have all the toxins in my body. I have let go of a lot and it is like I have a new (or second) life now.

    BDIY the Baltic Dry Index. This is a measure of dry goods and mostly raw materials being shipped. When this index tanks it means no one is ordering, things aren’t being manufactured, and sales are declining. This will drop before the stock market and maybe before the collapse of the dollar. It might even trigger it. As far as Europe, I believe you’re right just staying a step ahead of the game, 95% of the people are targeted for extinction, it doesn’t matter where you live.

    The U.S. will not go down, alone. When the global economy collapses, and it will if the U.S. economy tanks out as many believe, I don’t think it would be prudent to be the American visitor in a foreign country. Even if it is an English speaking country, you are still that weird person who doesn’t quite speak right, doesn’t understand all the nuances of the culture, has no familial ties, and, hey, isn’t that guy from that nation that just screwed everything up?

    Hi Dave,
    As usual a great article. I had planned to leave the U.S. after I left NSA and the State Department but God had other plans for me. I Had already been granted a 20,000 hectare concession by the Ecuadorian government was all set to leave when God told me I could not leave until such time as He showed me. That was 25 years ago. I guess I am just too hardheaded to quit this country. I love this country it is just the government I despise. Here are some of my reason: http://codgerville.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/its-2014-what-are-you-willing-to-die-for/

    Some of my old foreign contacts have invited me to move to their countries (Africa and Mid-Eastern nations) but like you say, what is about to happen is GLOBAL. Look at the countries that are already teetering on collapse: Hungary, Poland, Venezuela, Argentina, the Ukraine has already collapsed and many others. We can’t hide from this one. I’ll stick it out here and I have a feeling you will too.
    Good luck and God bless you and yours in 2014.

    This article presents an interesting conundrum.It seems that by leaving CONUS you would be only one step ahead of NWO pursuers who have perfected tracking/monitoring techniques.The alternative is staying put and preparing or having a bug-out location which would also be easily monitored with contemporary technologies.(some of which are not publicly known) This devious inhumane World Order has only one defense in my eyes and that is through Scripture and Faith in our Savior no matter where you are. We are about to go through the Test of our lives and only those who have “studied” will know the answers.Our salvation will not be in this world it will be in the next. Seek the truth.Know Jesus,Know Peace,No Jesus,No Peace http://rcg.org/books/tshtbl.html Ezekiel 34:24-26

    24 And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.

    25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

    26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. Revelation 12:6 Mid-Tribulations

    When things get bad on a global scale, the title ‘foreigner’ would not be something I’d want associated with my name. I understand why the Jews were slaughtered by Hitler. Home is all you know. Will another country take you in or throw you back. I’ll stay here, prepare as best I can and warn others. There is honor on both sides of that fence.

    TPTB are probably fine with emigration – especially if they get a pound of flesh on your way out. After all, why would they want a bunch of aware, irate, people of means hanging around and rabble-rousing the proles into a frenzy? Nope, you play right into their agenda if you bail…

    We are in the end of times and everything recorded in the Word of Jah WILL be fulfilled. We are not to fear, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in our Almighty Father who will never abdicate His Throne. If we do not keep Him enthroned in our hearts, then we have something to fear and be worried about was the enemy is trying to do. He IS ALREADY defeated and we are to ENFORCE that defeat.

    He fed the children of Israel during their trek through the wilderness. Their clothes did not wear out for 40 years and there was NOT ONE feeble among them. Only those who did not believe in the promise He had given them to enter the ‘promised land’ failed to enter in.

    We are in the wilderness, making our trek to the promised land He has designated for us. We will overcome by the blood of Jahshuwah, the word of our testimony(do we believe?) and not loving our life unto its death.

    We are to fight the good fight of faith with the sword of the Spirit and our praises to the King of Kings. The praises of Jah’s people will scatter the enemy.

    Step into the authority that has been given us in the Name of Jahshuwah and stand firm in the power of His might. Victory is ours!! It has already been won at the cross. Look up!! Our redemption is drawing nigh!!

    Hi, Dave. I appreciate your insights, as well as those of Doug H., Alex J., and so many others. Honestly, it is a colossal nightmare to try to reconcile what is depicted in the MSM, what one sees with their eyes, and the “insider” information of alternative media sites. I confess I can’t do it.

    My anchor in all this chaos is Yehovah. If He says to move, I will move. If He tells me where to go, I will go. If He tells me nothing, I will stay where I am. Do I want to stay where I am (on the US/Mexico border)? No, I do not. I want to head north, to the greener fields well watered I once knew. But, until and unless, I remain where I am.

    He gave me a “word” recently. The word was “ready”. I knew it meant He had finished a process in me. He has prepared me for whatever nightmare is coming my way. As recorded in HIs Word, I am called to stand firm in the testimony of my Savior, Jesus. With HIs preparation and HIs strength, I will do so.

    For all who are uncertain, turn to Him. He will prepare your spirit for whatever lies ahead. Stand strong in the LORD our God.

    As to where to go, I would avoid Chile which seems to be promoted as the “place to be” by Simon Black and others. I had a friend who moved there last year. He loved it for a month or two. Beautiful place, great buses, more first world than US…. Then reality set in. Several months later he was coming back to Paraguay (which is where I am), as he found Chile to be more of a police state that the United States. He has some real horror stories when dealing with the powers that be there. From what he describes the “non-corruptible” cops are psychopaths who have no soul and take pride in making people suffer through stupid laws and regulations. When he got back he went as far to say he would never step foot in the country EVER again. I know another person who lived there for many years and married a Chilena and did not like it either. As an Austrian down here commented to me, Chile is way too efficient a society to ever be a free country. Paraguay is just the exact opposite – people are very laid back and most people have a habit of ignoring laws with impunity. What most westerners find odious about the culture is what makes it one of the best places to be at this time. With 6 million people in a country the size of California, there are plenty of places to escape to if chaos arose. There are even Christian communes such as Filiadelphia in the northern Chaco that are pretty self sufficient that I imagine will be among the safest places to be on the planet if things go the way I suspect they do (assuming one can stand the heat up there; not sure that I could…).

    The fact is most people will not leave until it is too late. But if there comes a point where people rush for the doors, countries will just close their doors to American refuges; that is one of the reasons I needed to leave sooner rather than later. Like I said earlier, I think it is something everyone has to pray about. Judgement is coming to the world, but some nations are going to be judged much more harshly than others. If there was no place to escape from the New World Order, then there would be no remnant at the end of time. God would not tell people to flee Babylon unless he made provision for places of safety for them. I do not want to see America come under the tyrant’s boot any more than the next person, but if it is God Himself who sends that judgement, know that the people will not win. If there were spiritual repentance on the order of Ninevah, then there might be a chance, otherwise, most patriots are probably going to be martyred. That is not necessarily a bad thing. But what if God would have rather you preached to the other nations as to why America fell on more fertile ground for the gospel? What if God wishes to scatter the remnant church of America out to the rest of the world the way He scattered the original Christians to scatter the gospel to the Gentiles? (which occurred due to persecution within Jerusalem; God did not have most of these people stay to be martyred, and if He did the gospel would not have spread). You might even eventually die overseas later down the road, but you might have another 5, 10, or 20 years (who knows) to spread the gospel amongst people who want to hear it. Again, that is why I would highly encourage everyone to pray as to whether they are seeking God’s will, or their own. There is no doubt some are specifically called to remain and others to go; just make sure you go to Him WILLING to do his will with an open heart.

    One other suggestion on capital controls and getting your money out. This is a real potential problem. I know there has been a lot of bitcoin bashing out there, but as long as the internet is up, it is very viable method that could be used to transfer wealth overseas. There is a misunderstanding that bitcoin is a replacement for cash or gold, WHICH IT IS NOT, it is an alternative to the global SWIFT system for payments. But the reason it has gone up in price is because it is being used to get around capital controls in places like Iran, China, and Argentina. That is why I do not believe the conspiracy theory that this was created by the elite to acclimate people to the mark of the beast system (you cannot even do quick cash transactions with this because verification takes 10 minutes, and ideally should take over an hour if people held to the original protocol; and this is the exact opposite-no need for identifier due to digital signature technology); just the opposite, they do not want this system to be in place. Eventually the internet could be brought down and bitcoin would be worthless, but one can use it to transfer money overseas as long as the internet is still up. Paypal a friend or send cash to a friend to buy bitcoins in the US (even if the government shuts down the exchanges, they cannot prevent private bitcoin transactions), then IMMEDIATELY travel to a country like Argentina (across the border from me where bitcoin premiums tend to be high) and then do a private trade for bit coins for dollars/real/guaranei/gold/silver. You might have the value of bitcoin decline in the process (or go up) but you will not lose 100% due to not being able to get it out of the country. If anyone here finds themselves in that situation, just remember this alternative. It is still better to wire money out if you still can.

    “I freely admit, that on the balance sheet, the reasons to leave outweigh the reasons to stay. And the reasons to move our children away from the growing tyranny in this country are even more numerous. However, our enemy calls themselves the New World Order for a reason”

    Frankly, while I acknowledge hard Neo-Malthusanism is coming to the US, I don’t see trading hard for soft or in the middle as an alternative. There’s also the coming wars to take into account. The reasons are very simple; the Tyrants club or Dummies Club is seeking to counter the populace’s sentiment away from supranational interests or supranationalism. War is the fastest and most direct avenue of depopulation particularly of philosophies that run against your interest like nationalism, religious, liberty, and etc.
    There’s two principle reasons why the world’s nations are not at the same stage of Bismarkianism:
    1). This is because the populace is being pacified, and they’re in soft Neo-Malthusianism. South America, Africa, and Asia are in soft. North America and Europe is on the verge of hard. Select areas already have been given free reign by the Tyrants club.
    2). This allows the Bismarkianists or otherwise known as Elitists, Globalists, and etc to convince people who are compelled to flee to flee to nations that ultimately are outsiders and easier to track, target, and eliminate at a future date.
    Lets emphasize this point shall we?
    People desire to leave because the public-private partnership is drowning their opportunity and eroding their standard of living. Therefore, they’ll be named various enemies of the state, and it is almost guaranteed that the announced authoritarian government will name these people terrorists or simply orchestrator of the economic woes to the unwary populace. The mechanism is already in place, so they can target people abroad particularly in the vicinity of ‘enemy activity’. Bismarkianists have a tendency to make examples of such people, and they take great pride in making show trials for people who believed they could escape. Communist National Socialist Stalin was notorious for bragging about assassinating a dissident who escaped his clutches in the Americas, and it further used to express the reach of the Soviet Union.

    “I have personally known a FEMA retiree and his family who have left their home for a self-contained community with like-minded alphabet soup agency personnel in order to protect their families from what is coming.”

    People should move to where like minded people are, and they should make the community as independent and defensible as possible. The last thing people should do with a push for not only national but supranational Authoritarianism is make themselves an indefensible target.
    Frankly, since I’ve studied the NWO topic, I’m not giving up my rights particularly the Second Amendment to expat. No!
    I’m not going to volunteer for the black list and show trials when the crap hits the fan. Authoritarian governments derived by Bismarkianism are notorious for show trials, and they target pride and are notorious for their ability to assassination dissidents with their reach.

    I’ll take my chances right here in the US and whatever threat assessment they have in my dossier.

  28. Hindsfeet February 2, 2014 at 1:47 pm

    Dave,
    Sorry, I’m late to this discussion, my computer crashed/died, lost all info, links,etc. Felt like I was having “withdrawal” from missing your spot on articles.

    To answer your question, “Is it time to leave America while you can?” My response is no. Without America there is no Free World. Again, it’s The Rise of the New World Order so no matter where you go, IF God allows it it will happen.

    Thanks again for all you do to educate and prepare us.
    I’ll close with one of my favorite quotes.

    “This is God’s universe and He does things His way. Now, you may have a better way of doing things, but you don’t have a universe.”

    Job 5:17-23 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hand make whole. He shall deliver you in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shall thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. For thou shalt be in a league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle SHALL BE in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.

    Jesus is the only way to make it through these tribulations –

    I am tied down financially for one year. Yeah, sounds crazy, but my group made a financial move 4 years ago that tied up most of my assets for 5 years, so I am one year away from the pay off and financial freedom, and then we likely will leave. I really wish I had the ability to leave now. I cannot convince my wife to pack up, leave with the kids and be safe until I can join up. I know I could leave if I had to walk to to Canada and leave from there.

  31. Bruce February 2, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    Dear Dave,

    { There really is “NO PLACE to RUN!” }

    Just for the record, its not the New World Order, its just the “World Order” its as old as TIME.
    Everything we see or know is nothing more nor less than Mystery Babylon, or perhaps better said RULE by the
    ” Kabbalah & Talmud” also known as the teachings of the Fallen Ones.
    Until people wake up to this, the facts are quite clear. History will repeat its self over and over again.

    The method they have used is the same today as it was thousands of years ago: { Create a Problem, wait for a reaction, then have at least three solutions in hand. } The modern name is the Hegelian Dialectic.
    Thus everything old is NEW, as well – everything new is OLD.

    The question should be, are there any who wish to wake from your “Indoctrinated” State of being
    Or is the sublimated Babylon Material life your goal.

    When one understands the “Sprit World” AKA a “Higher dimensional being” of what allows one to see the world in a different LIGHT, all is clear.
    Perhaps better said the LIGHT of Jesus Christ, the SON of our “GOD” as spelled out within all Humans DNA, YAH = GOD again that’s found within all humans fused block at the base of our helix.
    GOD who created all Humans, as in all of us no single group nor race is better than the next.

    No matter what the Fallen Ones may say, be it within their twisted written or oral history. My Good people look into Brother Nathanael Foundation. Learn the TRUTH before you can’t. See The LIGHT of Jesus before you can’t.

    As I have said before, its TIME to pick the side of History you wish to be within.
    The light of Jesus or the PIT of Lucifer. Its your choice, GOD gave all of us FREE WILL to do such.

    Shalom

    WHY YOU CANNOT LEAVE:

    America is the battleground and was validated by Lindsay (traitor homosexual) Graham on the floor if the US Senate on the creation of the NDAA.

    If you believe in Liberty and detest tyranny, you cannot leave.

    America is indeed the battleground and we are quite literally fighting a war of good vs evil. Those who leave have acquiesced to satan while those who fight have acknowlged their allegiance to God, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

    Do you think you will be ‘safer’ in another country if America falls? You will not. You will ultimately die an untimely death!

    Would you rather die on your feet or
    on your knees?

    I intend to die on my feet. My time is short and I have made my peace with God.

    Understand this….if America falls, literally several hundred million people will die on this planet. It is completely unacceptable, not just to me, but to God. We cannot allow.

    Fight the Good fight and defeat evil in every nook and cranny that it exists.

  33. "Alice" February 2, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    I made the move last August to China.
    It is the second time I have left the states and found instant “breathing room.”
    As ironic as it sounds, this country is far more open and liberal than the states
    ( if you can live without facebook and youtube, which for me is no trouble ).
    As in an earlier post by “Chris” – children are indeed on the streets launching fireworks at
    new years. Cops are not armed. The first thing I did when I got here was buy a second hand
    electric bike (charges from a wall socket ). No license, no fuel, no problem. Indeed, whether you
    are single and without kids or raising a family, leave if you have the ways and means to do so.
    Plus, there is a wonderful charm to living in a society that is over 5000 years old and has the worst
    times behind it. Wherever you go, pick a place that has already experienced tyranny and oppression.
    Once a country recovers from that, they rarely slip back into it quickly. If that were ever to occur
    here again, it would be at the end of our lifetimes.

  34. utahred February 2, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    I would love to leave but my unbelieving husband won’t hear of it. So I will prepare and shelter down. I will pray that when it’s time to die that I won’t be a coward.

  35. John Scribner February 2, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Dave—Like Chris I left the once great US in 2013. The reason for my leaving was the realization that the US was referred to in the bible as Mystery “Babylon the Great”. I was taught from a very early age that what God says in the Bible should be listened to. What he says twice should be feared. What he says directly in 5 different passages should be taken as God screaming it at you. “Flee Babylon”. Passages: [Jer 50:8—-Jer 51:6,9,45—Rev 18:4] Read the account of Jeremiah’s warning to Juda. They were told to surrender to Babylon and live or don’t and die. Now it’s Babylon’s judgement and God says, get out of Babylon and live or stay and die. If you decide to leave it should be for this reason and this reason only, God says to get out. Remember, God starts his judgement in the house of God first and it is referred to in the bible as the time of Jacob’s trouble, not mentioning any other nations directly. The world will suffer along with Jacob but not to the extent of Jacob. When God says to get out and save your souls God means that most places outside of Babylon will be far safer than Babylon it’s self.——John

    Stupid Americans….Dave, you’re right. Just reading the posts of people commenting to your article, you can see the stupidity in their spelling, punctuation, grammar, and their attempt to communicate their ideas, concepts of the future etc. My high school education trumps their college education every day thanks to the system we had back-in-the-day.

    When it comes to courage, that can only be indicated by their actions. Knowing what is coming I am now a prepper enhancing my skills, training, supplies activities as well as protesting visibly the actions of our government via a group know nationally as “Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment”. The patriots doing this are causing American motorists to wake up, research the facts and take action to wake other up, too.

    There numerous organizations that have developed through insightful leaders that people are not aware exist where they can take action against the government’s tyranny. Oath Keepers, the John Birch Society, whose prophecies over the past several decades are coming to fulfillment, the Tea Party Patriots (the original Tea Party organization – all others are fake or fraudulent) and so on. If people want to truly take action there are plenty of opportunities if Americans will get off of their posteriors, away from the television and stop posting all over social media to take physical, visible action to connect and correct the mindsets of their fellow Americans.

    Find your action group on social media and start working to save this nation for your children and grandchildren. However, be ready to sacrifice your life for what that in which you believe. Memorize the last line of the Declaration of Independence and use that as your statement of your commitment, “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

    Also, get your own copy of the Constitution and become familiar with it along with the Bill of Rights and the other 17 Amendments. Knowledge is power and too many people are powerless in this nation that once was great.

    As a Canadian watching events unfolding south of the border I am genuinely frightened for you all. The people who are saying to you, ‘get out while you can’ are the ones who are seeing your situation from the perspective of geographical and emotional distance. It reminds me of what I’ve read of 1930’s Germany. There were Jews who left and, therefore, kept themselves and their children safe. Others were warned but it was inconceivable to them to leave their country where they had lived for generations, loyally fought for during World War I, had businesses and homes or elderly parents. Many couldn’t have left because they didn’t have the funds to do so. So many reasons not to leave…….and of course we know the tragic outcome.
    To those who are followers of Christ, if there was ever a time when you need to fast and pray you are living that time. Set aside all but the most essential things you need to do and begin to fast and pray for the Lord’s direction for you and your family. Do ONLY what He shows you to do. (Read Ephesians 5)
    To those who are not believers, please try to think objectively. To think your guns will protect you against SWAT teams seems like trying to stop an army tank with a peashooter. While you bravely speak of dying as you try to stand and fight, please consider who will look after your children or your old parents if you die. Perhaps you won’t die in a stand-off but you sustain a life-changing injury or you’re hauled off to indefinite prison as a domestic terrorist and your children will become wards of the state. At that point your usefulness to your cause as well as your family is pretty much nullified. All I’m saying is to please ‘think smart’.
    I suspect that guns, canned goods, etc will be confiscated in house-to-house raids. Betrayals will become rampant. (“see something, say something”) The most important ‘preps’ you can make are spiritual and emotional. If you’re staying, cultivate peaceful friendships and be an encouragement to one another. Research history and learn from those who survived the Stalinist and Nazi regimes.
    Seek wisdom and choose carefully.

    You pose a serious question for review and thought. An interesting book outlining the U.S. parallels with Nazi Germany is called “Ominous Parallels” by Leonard Piekoff. He is a student of Ayn Rand. While I quickly point out that his worst quality is his transference of atheism or church hatred from Rand to himself, the book is an interesting read. He methodically outlines how the wrong ideas have been inserted into every aspect of our culture, from religion to art to business and government. These ideas were foreign to the founding of this country. He also correctly identifies that the U.S. was founded on the philosophy of Aristotle,(individualism) and not Plato (collectivism) like the rest of the world.
    Piekoff’s conclusion is interesting as well, as he makes a case for some form of authoritarian dictatorship coming here. He says the form that appears in each country depends upon how much that country’s people will accept. Each country’s populace will accept different strengths of tyranny based on their history. One factor he doesn’t address at all is the strong brainwashing that has prepared several generations for the global statist take-over. With the schools these days, people are willing to accept more fetters than ever. So the thinking is that if you do stay here, you will be fighting not only tyranny with tanks, but tyranny of your neighbor’s mind-controlled lack of understanding. You will be on two fronts simultaneously, because when trouble hits we have Katrina’s example of how most average citizens will react. Dog-eat-dog. (police ran or confiscated the good guys guns too remember).
    According to well known psychological constructs, most people will not fight the government in the face of overwhelming force. They will go along with group thinking and submit under martial law. Every psychological test shows that is human nature. Our own revolution showed that too, with only 5% or less participating actively to overthrow the king. That was before school brainwashing in punishment avoidance. School brainwashing is extremely strong in most people. If you don’t have like-minded people you can trust, you will be hard pressed to find them later, and even so, how strong they will hold with you can only be known under fire. At that point its too late to change plans.

    Dave the Lord told me on election night 2008 who this man was and what was going to happen to the United States. It didn’t make sense to me at that time. After much research I began to connect the dots. About 4 years ago I felt that the Holy Spirit was leading me to leave. the US. In the last 2 years I have heard the Holy Spirit screaming for me to get out! I didn’t leave before because Satan put some serious infirmities on my body. I am still having some health issues, but I know I have to obey what God is commanding me to do. Last summer when the Supreme Count ruling came down on homosexuality, the Lord said to me “Get out of Sodom and Gomorrah.” My other issue has been that my husband and adult children do not believe that anything can happen in the US. I believe that God wants me to go and build an “ark” for my family elsewhere. Also I recommend that you read THE END OF AMERICA by John Price. You can download it on kindle for 99 cents. If you believe that America is the new Babylon, then read Jer. 50 and 51 and insert the US everywhere Babylon is mentioned and read what happens to Babylon. Every day we become more and more oppressed. I’ve travelled to numerous Central and South American countries in the last few years and believe me you don’t feel that way in these countries. I’ve met many, many expats that love their new lives and the freedom that they are experiencing. Certainly when the evil one is revealed, the whole earth will exposed to this madness. But if you leave while you can, you may be able to buy a some time for your family. BTW I do have my husbands’ blessing to go and build the “ark.” even though he thinks we have plenty of time. He doesn’t read your articles or listen to SQ, trunews,etc. even though I constantly encourage him to.

  42. Syrin February 3, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    To yokel the local. You are overlooking something. The “alternate media” has woken MANY people up to the reality of creeping tyranny. I am willing to bet there are tens of millions if not more who are ready and willing to fight, and equal number preparing for collapse. TV shows have sprouted up around people “prepping”. This isn’t just some fringe underground movement. I live in a very affluent neighborhood, and I would day over half are prepping. It’s just that most don’t share this info out of fear of being targeted and/or persecuted, so while people are being indoctrinated daily at multiple levels, many are also being brought back into reality through this site, infowars, drudge, etc.

    To those who would think that to leave this country might in some way indicate a lack of courage or patriotism, it might benefit us to remember that this country was founded by people who were fleeing their home country to escape tyranny of one sort or another. America is a set of ideas and ideals, not a geographical boundary. This real estate was available; that’s why this particular piece of ground became the land of the free and the home of the brave. To take those ideas to other parts of the world, in pursuit of that same freedom, may be the most truly American thing one can do. It certainly takes a particular kind of courage to uproot one’s entire life and transfer it to another place in the world.

  44. IronLady February 3, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    Have never posted, but read your articles faithfully. I am not sure if any readers may be interested, but I would like to share something that may be of interest to perhaps some who would desire or consider expatriating to Canada. A law was passed in Canada in April, 2009, that enables first generation children of Canadian citizens to recognize/acquire their Canadian citizenship. My father was born in Canada, migrated legally to the U.S. as a child, and eventually married my mother an American citizen. Both my sister and myself were born in the U.S. and as of late 2012, we both have dual citizenship. My sister has both a Canadian and American passport. If you research this law on line, do not let the 1947 date dissuade you. My sister was born in 1943. The forms to apply are on line and the entire process took approximately 8-9 months. If you have any questions, your nearest Canadian consulate will should assist you. Ours was wonderful!

    We gonna find it of much dificulty to coexist with an American, your pride based on empty value as nationality race or hypotetical-volume-of-money-one-could-make-in-his-life-but-will-never-do are just too hard for mos of us
    So please , dont go anywhere and stay in home

    I too left the US. Back in 2008 after being looked at like a kook for pointing out inconsistencies in logic to just about everyone I knew I said hell with this place and started making plans to escape. We had about 2 years until my wife retired from her job and the day after she retired we were gone. We weren’t running away but simply refused to participate any longer in the destruction of the world. All of the severe injustices to the people in the US went unnoticed or ignored and I couldn’t see any form of protest, for what that was worth, that would work, short of going to jail. The only protest I could make was not paying any more taxes that were absolutely necessary. No support for the war machine. Not one cent. I totally agree with you that it’s gonna come crashing down, first there and then it will trickle down worldwide. It could all be stopped if everyone would just stop. Stop playing the game. Buttttt, we all know that that’s not gonna happen cause the people of the US are stupid sheep that are led around by the little boxes they watch 24/7. I’ve been out of that place for almost 4 years and there is nothing that would make me go back. Nothing. In those 4 years I’ve watched more and more rights being taken away and seen the corporate puppet politicians sling their bullshit with increasing rapidity and still there is no major protest. So much for incrementation. I agree a lot with what Pigwit said above also. Being in a place where the majority of the population is self sufficient makes for tough cookies that can easily survive should the power go out. I pretty much did what Pigwit did too as far as the weight thing and removing toxins from my body. These days I very seldom eat processed food, never eat fast food and have completely turned it all around. You just gotta realize that just about everything you were ever told or learned is a crock of bullshit and was done for money. Reprogram yourself and go at the game from the other end. Follow the 180 rule.
    I realize that there are many, probably most, people that are so into the system up there that it’s very hard to leave. Pretty scary too, to cross the line and do it. I don’t have too much money but you don’t need a lot to get by. Most of the things that people just gotta have is bullshit. You don’t need much to be real happy cause it’s all in your head. I ain’t no spring chicken either. 62 and happy as hell. Remember, the takers will take until you don’t let em take no more. Ole!

  53. AnneMarie February 4, 2014 at 11:25 am

    @ John Scribner – I left the USA over 40 years ago and renounced my American citizenship a short time later. I hear what you’re saying, but the USA is not Babylon (the Vatican is, it’s a religious issue), but the USA is the second beast of Revelation 13:11, the second beast has the worldwide influence required to restore the first beast to global supremacy like it had during the Dark Ages. Either way, God refers to the USA as a “beast”, the USA is NOT God’s nation, it is controlled by Satan the dragon, which is evident when we watch what is happening in the USA. The USA will receive God’s wrath more so than other nations because of its promotion of the first beast. The dragon stands behind both beasts of Revelation 12 & 13, that should tell us why things are happening the way they are in the USA right now. People do need to get out of the USA, but it’s not that easy anymore; some say they will never leave but when the SHTF they will try desperately but all escape routes will close immediately.

    “it takes a particular kind of courage to uproot one’s entire life and transfer it to another place in the world”, brings Kitty Werthmann to mind. That is exactly what her family did when they escaped the Nazis. Because she escaped and survived, she knows first hand exactly how the sinister game plan that Hitler implemented plays out, she lived it and she has been very vocal in trying to warn us, and some of her warnings are graphic. The U.S. is on that path. I believe our omniscient God has allowed people like Kitty to be here in this time and this place. Whether you agree with it or not, the Chronicler’s and Yokel the local posts here are relevant and worthy of consideration. Christians who can get their children out of the public school system by either home schooling or private education are doing so. They are leaving behind a corrupt educational system for the physical, mental and spiritual safety of their children. They see the dangers looming and they act. American citizens who are convicted and convinced they need to leave the U.S., if even temporarily, for the sake of their families are no different Lest we forget the angel that appeared to Joseph, and instructed him to flee with Mary and Jesus to Egypt for the protection of Jesus to escapes Herod’s slaughter of the innocents. Egypt isn’t the perfect place either, wasn’t then and it isn’t today…but fleeing there served its purpose until the smoke cleared, in that case the death of Herod. The Lord will lead his people individually, just as he calls us…one by one.

    To all the Canadians giving their 0.02 cents, do you really think you are safe in Canada?
    Mr Globalwarming Gore was asked about the North American Union recently and hinted about how they are trying to push that along, the Mexican stooge along with the Canadian stooge nodded their heads in unison.
    Canada is tied and linked to America in so many ways. Once the unrest settles in America, how long do you think it would take to overthrow the defenceless Canadians.
    I imagine it is tough to leave America, I moved to Europe for a few years and missed too many luxuries. Even having a car in most of Europe is a luxury.
    God Bless America

    What? Leave and miss the Great Mairanas Turtle Shoot? Why? It’s not gonna be any better anywhere else, anyway. In fact, conditions in most 3rd rate south American countries are fairly poor. So, stay, and take aim; it will be a target rich environment. You cannot miss!

    I moved to Croatia from Canada in 2004. I was born here but don’t remember much as I left when I was a baby. It’s a third world country in a sense that even 20 years after the war, not much has been done to democratize it fully, but I live in the country surrounded by lush greenery, grow my organic garden and have a very successful healing/TCM practise where I don’t pay taxes because it’s on a voluntary basis.
    It took me a few years to get used to the customs and way of life, but I have not once wished to be back in Canada especially now with the Fukushima fallout. We still have clean air, our ocean Adriatic Sea is one of the cleanest in the world and although the NWO will eventually come here, at least I can feed my family and not worry about the shelves in the store being empty. It was hard to let go of all my stuff and move, but when I look back I wonder how I managed to collect so much crap. Living a simple life creates less problems, learning that health is the most important thing in your life and no matter how much money you have, it can’t cure your cancers caused by radiation.
    It’s not about should we move or not, it’s a personal choice and we all have different priorities in life. Mine was being able to live a quite and peaceful life where I can still grow organic food without being fined for it.

    To Dwight: No, this real estate was not available. Try telling a Native American it was vacant and up for grabs. To anyone reading who thinks global conspiracies aren’t real, try asking a Native American if it’s possible for a government to round you up and put you into prison camps.

    Great article, however the USA is already long gone. Sometime ago the USA morphed into the “US-Israel Empire,” and I’m afraid that the US as a stand-alone independent nation will never return. USA…RIP.

    Love your articles Bro. Dave Hodges! I pass on and share them weekly. Leaving the US and expatriating is a huge personal decision not to be taken lightly, that has to be preyed and meditated over, it is not for everyone. After 45 yrs in ATL. GA I had had enough and came to Ecuador in SEP 2008.

    You never know what someone else has gone through until you walk a mile or so in their moccasins. In the early 90’s I had my full rude awakening with the events of Waco – Ruby Ridge & OKC. (not a johnny come lately to the Patriot Movement just due to 911)

    Not much internet around at that time in early to mid 90’s, but as I was making my rounds in the SE gun show circuit, I would gravitate to the booth with all the good old VHS NWO tapes, books (Creature from Jekyll Island / Behold a Pale Horse) & photo copied “taboo info.” (I had the good fortune to meet Randy Weaver at a Gun Show, a very Humble & Nice Gentleman)

    ..and of course tuning into SW radio for the Chuck Harder Show, Hour of the Time Bill Cooper etc. I was passing out the late Officer Jack McLamb – Vampire Killer booklets to my local law enforcement, trying to wake folks up on a local county level and at my workplace, show up at town hall meetings- question my Congress Critters, etc. etc.

    We organized a community group of about 35 like minded folks that grew to over a 100 members w/ bi weekly meetings called “Citizens for a Constitutional GA” 1994 -95, we briefly had our own SW radio show aired live on meeting nights. (I had the good fortune of meeting Anthony J. Hilder & Bow Gritz as guest speakers at some of our meetings) ..but our little group was basically infiltrated & disbanded after just a few years…{I Was somewhat NAIVE}

    …but I had subsequently gotten myself labeled and into a world of trouble on the alpha bet soup gang level that took many years & many many FRN’s to work out & to somewhat unravel. Just for trying to make a difference and to wake others up.

    I feel like I tried my best, did my time in the US & Patriot Community / Movement and obviously it was not good enough way back then in the mid 90’s. (Even w/ the amount of today’s awakened (3%…? maybe) I don’t think this NWO plan could have been derailed as far back as 80’s – 70’s nor the assassinating killing fields of the 60’s)

    ..BUT, Maybe I can make a difference from outside the wire for anyone that feels compelled to escape. Here in EC we have a year round growing season, (below the Fukushima Fall out line / pattern up in NA & Northern Hemisphere) the EC economy & currency crashed 14 yrs ago and are now on the USD. The Ecuadorians are tough & rugged people that know how to barter and survive w/ or w/o a paper currency. It will be no shock to them when it all goes down again.
    ..Above Comments (arm chair quarter backs) make remarks that expatriates are cowards, scared, afraid, unpatriotic, etc etc. ..and some expats may be. (so what, we all have free will) But until you have been hit with some trumped up charges for exercising your so called Constitutional Rights: IE soap box – ballot box – cartridge box, (about all but gone) and are looking at 10 to 20 yrs to serve, and get put away in some of their special holding facilities for a tune up from time to time, please – gimme a break?

    Patriots Movement folks that get really loud & vocal -know how to protest – organize – act up and expose taboo truths & topics, w/o getting locked up every time they turn around, really makes me wonder if their not under some sort of control: maybe divine intervention?, or maybe Gate keepers if you will?? What I tried & did was not pretty or fancy, or necessarily the right way to go about it, but I felt compelled to do something, even if it was (so called) wrong.

    ..I’m not saying EC is a perfect paradise 24/7 it’s got it’s own ups & downs- “Put your faith in no man” (or govt) It just works for me, for now, and for the past 5.5 yrs. I just want the chance to peacefully make up for some of the time I lost. When the The US. N. dist of GA gave me my passport privileges (not right to free travel privilege) back & said I was free to legally go…guess what.

    Hell- I aint as stupid as I look. I can take a hint: “If you don’t like the way we do it around here boy? either do something about it, (see what that got me) or leave!” – “I don’t go away mad, I just go away” –NWO wins, Lil Jack Lost, so what, at least I did put forth an effort and tried to make a difference.
    — I’m not naive enough to think Armageddon is exclusively reserved just for the good ole USA. I’ve all ready endured 7 years of whaling & gnashing of the teeth up there, I just wanted and needed a brake & to be rooted and ready for when the real 7 yrs of great tribulation breaks out. God Bless & Godspeed to Bro. Dave and all his readers!

    The notion of “staying and fighting” is absurd! We Americans have spent our lives handing over mopre than 50% of everything we earn to a government that has built a military that can ruin almost every nation in the world; and which has militarized the police forces and tons of other government agencies; and many of our neighbors gladly serve these agencies and do their bidding.

    My goal is to find a very out-of-the-way place; far-removed, and where people live as they always have- in a self-sufficient agrarian economy which is totally localized. THAT is the only way to escape “the system”/NWO, etc. This is why srlf-sufficiency is out-lawed in many places in the developed world- if you are not dependent upon “the system”, they can not easily control you.

    Get out while you can and enjoy some freedom. No sense dying for a cause that few will appreciate; and in which you will not succeed. Find a quiet place, and live a simple life and enjoy sdome real freedom- anything else is just a needless waste of your life and resources. Only problem is, that few good places are willing to take Americans, unless you are wealthy.

    It kills me how many are jumping from the frying pan, into the fire. Canada? The country where pastors are in JAIl for criticizing homosexuality? Germany? Where taxes and the level of control are higher than here?! Chile? A veritable police-state already…. YOU NEED TO GET FAR AWAY from all this BS- not just to someplace which is “different” and whose tyranny you simply don’t see because you are new- much like foreigners who come here don’t immediately see our corruption and tyranny. Think small! Think remote! Don’t think about trying to duplicate the infrastructure and conveniences you have here, because those things are built upon tyranny!

    EDITOR’S NOTE: DO YOU HAVE A SOLUTION? THE WAY THIS READS, I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD REPORT TO THE EXECUTIONER AND GET IT OVER WITH

    The USA seems to be filled with tension these days. I hoping to move to Port Vila, Vanuatu. I visited there for 4 months last year and found it very agreeable. The people are friendly and the climate very nice. Here is a site to acquaint yourself with Port Vila (www.ProSaveProperties.com). There are many place to consider, you just have to start looking. But I think the important thing is to find a peaceful place – at least that is my goal.

  65. Gordie Lloyd February 5, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    Yes, like I said….find a remote, far-away small nation to go to. I made a list of the few remaining places which do not belong to the UN- Those places I will investigate. Or…in a larger, more “mainstream” nation, like some in South America or Asia, go to a very remote area, NOT the big cities and towns. (By contrast, remote isolation in the US will NOT work, as the criminal gov’t can easily find you, and will almost definitely consider you a defector/etc.). Also, for those who haven’t prepared yet,…better get to it and hope there is still some time left. Me, I left New York City over a decade ago, for a self-sufficient rural life- and I’m thriving in it. Someone fresh out of the city, even if they can find a place to go, and get there in time, is not going to be able to adopt a natural self-sufficient agrarian lifestyle overnight. Learn to live without all the technology and conveniences and apart from “the system”. Find a place which doesn’t have resources that the rest of the world wants; where the US (or other superpowers) military is NOT involved (Just finding a place where the US doesn;t have troops/bases, lets out about 80 countries, alone!). And think “poor” places.In reality, poor places where people still live like they always have (i.e. have not become dependent upon jobs and government) are the best, as such people are not controlled; and not reliant upon the gov’t and the world economy, and actually live quite nicely; and their societies will not unravel when TSHTF, becasuse they have no part in “the system”. (I did the same thing in microcosm when I left NYC- moving to one of the poorest states, where land is cheap…and so are taxes; and the gtovernment is not as intrusive as opposed to places that have plenty of unending resources. I bought myself some time! I have a much better life; I have ZERO debt, and can live extremely cheaply. all ready to leave; only my obligation to an elderly parent keeps me here now- but I am very thankful for the impoved life i now have, and the extra time with that parent, and hope that things hold out a while longer.
