i only want you to quit telling me to do something that I just cant afford to do. I have tried my hardest to make enough money to leave this state
ever since things went down hill in 2008, should have moved before then since now construction just doesn't pay anything at all. I don't
necessarily agree with the OPPT, and completely disagree with the nonsense being spewed here. Simple fact is that if the OPPT is correct then by
their own descriptions of the corruption going on there is no way any court would admit to this, and will instead lock you up for attempting it. Its
just that simple. I do wish the states would hold the feds to the constitution though instead of allowing them to operate inside individual states
which is a right explicitly denied the feds. If you don't believe that one then just take a look at some of the laws being passed about gun rights
such as in Texas, or the one Idaho has had for years now (Texas sure is trying to monopolize on it and make it sound like their the first, kinda
I did not tell you you HAD to move, It was a suggestion, if you think it's better elsewhere then by all means, find that elsewhere, however if you
wish to remain in the Republic, there are rules and regulations you must follow.
Throughout this thread some very good ideas have been put forth that ordinary people can do without resorting to the OPPT nonsense. It has also been
stated, that with all of it's flaws, our system, for better or worse is still one of the better systems of government out there, and yes it needs
work, but it needs legal, and lawful work, not slights of hand and BE'ing and DO'ing and new age nonsense.
Gun rights have nothing to do with this thread, and seeing as I am not anti-gun, in fact as I sit here and type this I am armed, as I have to run out
and it would be a violation if I went out without being armed, I agree, the second amendment is a right granted and it should not be trampled.
However that does not mean that every attempt to legislate is a trample of that right.
But to suggest in any way I need to pay for your misfortune? Nah ain't gonna work with me.. I've been homeless, I've been without anything, had to
dumpster dive to survive, trudge through feet of snow to find a place to hunker down and get a few hours of sleep before continuing on, but I made
it.. If you look at some of the more rational suggestions presented, you can make it, we all understand both sides of this coin, but in the end
result, the country is what YOU make of it, not what Heather Tucci makes of it, or any amount of BE'ing and DO'ing and Nunc's and Preatra's and
Loving light and aliens with all our gold.
Do I feel bad that my tax money goes to helping people on Medicaid and Food Stamps, no, because i needed those systems at one point in my life, to me
I'm giving back to someone now that needs it. So I think the fraud in that system needs addressing, yes.
Do I care honestly that you can't afford to move out of your state? No not really, and it may sound cold, callous and heartless, but, not many people
CAN afford to move out of their state, I'm taking a HUGE hit on my home so that I can move my girls to a better school district, I am downsizing all
aspects of my life, I don't expect anyone to hold out the can and feel sorry for me though, it is a choice I am making, just as it is your choice to
stay where you are, if you don't need to, then why should money be the determining factor? Sell your home, or if you rent, pay up the last rental
payment and hop in your car, on a bus, or a train and just go wherever, not one person is stopping you, nor is anyone saying you need permission to.
Are you afraid if you do that that it will be hard? Probably will, but if it's worth that much to you to be out of wherever you are, you should
pursue it, and find that way, hard or not.
It really is that simple, and in that way, we are free, free to make the best of it or the worst of it depending on our outlook.
