One in .35 million

Out of 350,000 adults in Ada County, only ONE:

knows what Austrian Economics tells us about the very near-term disaster to the world economy
AND
knows what the unification, federalization and militarization of the nation’s law enforcement agencies portends
AND
knows what the plethora of unconstitutional executive orders threaten to do
AND
knows what the recent flurry of fascist laws of Congress will cause
AND
knows what, and how far along the implementation of, UN Agenda 21 is
AND
knows the proper role of the county sheriff
AND
is able to explain that role verbally, in writing and via five interlocking websites
AND
is fully aware of the risks to all of our lives, liberties and property with the current trajectory
AND
is an experienced business manager, supervisor and leader qualified to be Sheriff
AND
is courageous enough to stand up and take that position in spite of serious personal risk
AND
has a campaign that could win unconventionally thanks to social media and instant messaging.


HOWEVER,
I will not contribute to his campaign because he is not ________
or does not ________.

I will sit back and wait for * The Right Candidate * to come along.

The popularity of this perspective is a disappointment to me.
I may well have to accept the judgment that I am overly optimistic of human nature.

If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
– Winston Churchill

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
