What are we fighting for?

Federalism, ie the idea that independent states band together for their mutual benefit, to accomplish just the specific things that they cannot accomplish independently, ie common defense, trade without impediment, and the other 15 of the total 17 things specified in the Constitution that are the sole responsibilities of the federal, not national, government.

And beyond that, people are free to make their own decisions and vote on things that affect just themselves without imposing their will on others or having others will imposed on them.  So if folks in California or more specifically San Fransisco want to live a particular way, no problem.  That is their right.  They get to do that.  I don’t have to live under it or pay for the consequences of it.  Likewise, if I want to live with like-minded folks in another state or locality and vote for and live under a different set of rules, I get to do that.  No one is forced to stay in either place and support it or pay for it.  They can move.

Maximum freedom.

The alternative that the lilb-progs are trying to take our country towards, socialism, communism, or fascism, has a control by a central authority, theoretically “the will of the people” except it always ends up being a few chosen incestuous power-brokers, a new royalty, who impose their will on ” the little people”.

Fought a revolution to get away from that. 

Willing to fight another one.

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
