Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote an article for the Washington Times titled, "Why Americans Must Stop Actin Like Sheep, and Tell The Government To Take A Hike!" So many of us have been saying this from the beginning. They don't care about us, and it's up to us to disobey them out of existence.
I want you to know exactly where I stand on things right now. It's ESSENTIAL that we all remain FLEXIBLE and resilient as the chameleon is – changing our COLORS, but not our CORE PRINCIPLES – when it comes to investments and preservation of capital. We can't get attached to our investments, but rather we must make TOUGH DECISIONS and gutsy calls when the times demand them.
People of a certain age might remember the old John Birch Society slogan "Support your local police!" The idea here is that your local policeman is a liberty-loving buddy of yours who would only ever support just laws and constitutional mandates. Only those bad guys in the FBI or BATF would ever consider violating your rights.
Although it was nearly twenty years ago, I can remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. I remember the shock of hearing about the planes crashing into towers, at first believing it was a tragic accident and quickly learning it to be otherwise. I remember being told that 19 hijackers, part of a fundamentalist plot to destroy America, were behind the attacks and that the mastermind was a man in a cave in Afghanistan named Osama bin Laden.
America is in a haze right now. It seems like half the country is in denial of the danger while the other half is awaking from apathy and frantically trying to prepare. This is creating a fog of confusion as one side screams “it's nothing but the flu, stop buying up the grocery store...!”, and the other side just keeps stocking goods, though in an inexperienced way that prioritizes comfort over practicality.
