"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury."
- attributed to both Alexander Fraser Tytler and Alexis de Tocqueville
Imagine, for a moment, that our newly elected President, Liehawatha Warren, and our new Vice President of Free Shit, Bernie Sanders, take office with a Democrat House and Senate. Among their first orders of business are as follows:
- a new wealth tax on assets
- a new tax on meat and dairy
- double the income tax rates
- double gasoline taxes
- totally open the borders
- universal basic income for poor and immigrants
- reparation payments for blacks, browns, and LGBTQs
- criminalize all semiautomatic firearms
- criminalize anonymity and "hate speech"
- nationalize the internet
It isn't hard to see...
Beto O’Rourke, a presidential hopeful, has started selling T-shirts on his campaign website that read: “HELL YES WE’RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR AR-15.”
The T-shirts cost $30 a pop and are available in a couple of styles — a unisex in “Dark Grey Heather” or a women’s cut in black.
Neither is it too hard to imagine that the result would be Civil War 2 - Electric Boogaloo - Deplorables vs. Socialists.
If the Boogaloo does kick off, I humbly suggest your first orders of business are to determine which side you are on, who is likely with you, and who is likely against you. Here is a helpful checklist:
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists You?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your family members?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your neighbors?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your schools?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your church?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your coworkers?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your employer?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your local police?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your county sheriff?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your state's government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists Your state's national guard?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The US military?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Mexican government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Mexican people?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Canadian government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Canadian people?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The British government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Russian government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The Chinese government?
❏ Deplorables ❏ Socialists The United Nations?
The second order of business is to determine if you are going to choose to actively participate in the Boogaloo fun, or hope to remain a spectator. This is really a two-part analysis. The first is a risk-reward question, the second is a moral question.
The third order of business is to conduct a detailed personal security review based on an updated threat assessment. You should really do this regardless of your answer to the above. Having read the following article in advance and completed its inventory would certainly help you...
Questions to assist in creating a working inventory of mind, body, and equipment for living in dangerous or uncertain times
The fourth order of business is to conduct a political review. Essentially, whichever side you are on, and regardless of your desired level of participation, you want to take a long hard look at all of the political aspects of your life, and consider how they might possibly be viewed by both sides.

The fifth order of business is to determine if your chance of survival and/or contributing to victory, depending on your goals, is more likely if you stay where you are, or if you go to some other place.
The sixth order of business is to make a plan. The title of this plan is, "What exactly am I going to do, now that The Boogaloo has kicked off?" You should find that making this plan is much easier having accomplished the above orders of business.
It is my opinion that most, or all, of this thought can be done in advance. Some of the best help for this advance planning that I can give you, today, is contained in my ZeroHedge article...

And, if you think that you are going to fight, then you better get a quality instrument...
Defending your liberty with a rifle.
...and learn how to play the Electric Boogaloo as a member of an ensemble, or at least a duet...
Because, as Maestro Max says about performing The Boogaloo...
"No air support, no resupply, no medevac, no reserve platoon, so you better be a good combat shooter."
Remember, friends, that a failure to plan is a plan to fail.
Peace, prosperity, liberty, and love,
