    If You Are Devastated At Trump Presidency “It Might Be A Sign That You Rely On Or Worship The State Just A Bit Too Much”

    The inauguration is behind us now, but many – millions, it seems – are still immersed in fear, anguish, and grief over the reality of President Donald Trump.

    #NotMyPresident is still a very active hashtag on Twitter.

    People are already calling for impeachment, claiming Trump’s presidency is “illegitimate”.

    Celebrities (I refuse to mention them by name here and give them more attention) are still using their platforms to express anger, disappointment, and distress over the Trump presidency.

    Protests continue, and people are venting and ranting and arguing on social media.

    But maybe – just maybe – the widespread frustration and despair over the election outcome is unnecessary.

    Please understand that I fully support free speech and peaceful protesting, and my intention here is not to criticize those who have been attending protests or participating in other forms of activism.

    No, I am not going to lecture anyone about that, or attempt to discredit or berate those who are vocal about their concerns regarding what is to come in the next four (or more) years. Many concerns are legitimate, and I am grateful that more people are speaking up and attempting to make their voices heard.

    But I believe it is time to let the shock of the election inspire something positive – true action.

    Perhaps the time for lamentation has passed, and it is now time to DO the things we can to make our world a better place.

    In other words, I believe that we are responsible for our own lives, and that shifting focus to what we CAN control is a much healthier and beneficial approach than continuing down a path of despair.

    better

    So, I have a question for those who are in panic mode right now and think Trump is going to ruin everything…

    If you are devastated about who the president is, do you think it might be a sign that you rely on – or even worship – the State just a bit too much?

    As I stated before, many of the concerns people are expressing are undoubtedly legitimate. Will Trump’s administration continue to expand the police state? Will there be more war? How will immigration be handled? Will peaceful people who use cannabis be caged? What will happen to the US healthcare system? Are taxes going to decrease, or increase?

    These are issues that we don’t have much control over. In case you haven’t noticed by now, the government is ultimately going to do what it wants, will of the people be damned.

    There are concerns, however, that are arguably less legitimate. The “right” to health care is a significant one. Trump is already taking steps to dismantle Obamacare, and this is causing (understandable) anxiety for those who relied on the program.

    But if access to medical care is truly a right, that means we have the right to the labor of others.

    As I explained a few days ago…

    Positive rights require others to provide you with either a good or service. A negative right, on the other hand, only requires others to abstain from interfering with your actions. If we are free and equal by nature, and if we believe in negative rights, any positive rights would have to be grounded in consensual arrangements.

    Health care and free birth control are two “rights” many claim to have, but that is a perversion of the concept of rights. Claiming the “right” to free healthcare, for example, would mean that it is okay to infringe upon the negative rights of taxpayers and healthcare providers. The government cannot infringe upon our rights to pursue health care, buy birth control, and purchase other items and services – but no one owes anyone healthcare. It is a good, just like food, clothing, and other things we are free to buy.

    In other words, a right is not something someone gives you – it is something that no one can take away, or prevent you from pursuing.

    For those who believe that access to health care and other taxpayer-funded government programs is a right, I have a question for you:

    Would you be willing to rob others to fund those programs?

    That may sound like a crazy question, but think of it this way: What happens to people if they refuse to pay taxes?

    Are you SURE you are okay with using the force of government to make others pay for things you want?

    Keep in mind that this could backfire on you at some point in the future.

    I can’t fully blame Americans for believing it is the government’s job to take care of them. After all, the State’s existence continues for that very reason: People have been conditioned to believe they can’t survive without it. This indoctrination begins at a very young age, especially for those who attend public schools.

    Americans have gotten used to the idea that they have “rights” that are, in reality, privileges – privileges that the government can take away with the stroke of a pen.

    For example, the very powers that Obama used to implement the ACA are now being used by Trump to dismantle that program.

    voters

    Worrying about what might happen during a Trump regime will not change a thing.

    However, being proactive and taking personal responsibility for the things we can control can help us feel more empowered and independent.

    Learning about agorism, free-market healthcare (also called concierge care), growing your own food, buying locally, trading goods and services within your community, homeschooling your children, and collaborating with family, friends, and neighbors on projects can help you substantially reduce your reliance on the government. Learn and/or develop skills that will be useful to you and your community. Prepare and plan for job losses, economic crashes, and other possible disasters or hardships. Donate to charities and GoFundMe campaigns. Volunteer. Feed the homeless. Help each other in times of need.

    Agorism is a social philosophy that advocates creating a society in which all relations between people are voluntary exchanges by means of counter-economics. The concept was first proposed by libertarian philosopher Samuel Edward Konkin III:

    Konkin’s agorism, as exposited in his New Libertarian Manifesto, postulates that the correct method of achieving a voluntary society is through advocacy and growth of the underground economy or “black market” – the “counter-economy” as Konkin put it – until such a point that the State’s perceived moral authority and outright power have been so thoroughly undermined that revolutionary market anarchist legal and security enterprises are able to arise from underground and ultimately suppress government as a criminal activity (with taxation being treated as theft, war being treated as mass murder, et cetera).

    Agorists stress the importance of alternative strategies outside political systems to achieve a free society. Agorists claim that such a society could be freed more readily by employing methods such as education, direct action, alternative currencies like Bitcoin, entrepreneurship, self sufficiency, civil disobedience and – most importantly – counter-economics, which was defined by Konkin as:

    The Counter-Economy is the sum of all non-aggressive Human Action which is forbidden by the State. Counter-economics is the study of the Counter-Economy and its practices. The Counter-Economy includes the free market, the Black Market, the “underground economy,” all acts of civil and social disobedience, all acts of forbidden association (sexual, racial, cross-religious), and anything else the State, at any place or time, chooses to prohibit, control, regulate, tax, or tariff. The Counter-Economy excludes all State-approved action (the “White Market”) and the Red Market (violence and theft not approved by the State).

    It’s time to face the truth: the government does not care about you. It’s up to you to take control over your life. You own yourself, after all, and that’s a great thing.

    “A majority that yields to the promises of security instead of seeking liberty and self-reliance is giving up something real and valuable in return for false promises. The fact that strong leaders are willing to demagogue, spin, deceive, and lie proves their goal is neither to care for the people nor to advance liberty. Instead, it’s their perverted desire to rule over others that drives them. But, even authoritarian regimes don’t last if there isn’t general acceptance of their governance by the people.” ― Ron Paul

    If you are upset about Trump’s presidency (or even the existence of government at all) directing that energy towards attaining as much self-reliance as possible – and as little dependence on the State as possible – may do wonders for your outlook.

    What can you DO to make life better for yourself, those you care about, and your community?

      It’s what snowflake, titty-baby, Liberals do!

      If they can’t have it their way – The crying commences!

      • Genius says:

        Buy stock in Kleenex!

        • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

          Genius, LOL! Good one! Damn good article. If you depend on the state, i.e., government for everything in your life, then you have ‘screwed up royally’, like my wife used to say. You’re just SOL [SHIT OUT OF LUCK]. YOYO [YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN]. DEAL WITH IT!

        • Chances are … I’d probably make a bigger return if I invested Stock in Dildo’s than Kleenex.

          I’m willing to bet that Dildo’s are a preferred lifestyle choice over Kleenex for these titty-babies, and I’m also willing to bet they are still using dirty socks on the floor to clean up their goo – just because, they are that nasty.

      • Reality Check says:

        I’ve watched for 8 years while all you He-Bitches have pissed and moaned and whined and cried and name-called and insulted and demeaned and lied and… and… and….
        NOW you have become exactly what you hate the most.

        Now YOU are the SHEEPLE!!!!

        You’re buying all this kool-aid at any price and just as fast as you can.

        Well, your new Master appreciates what a good little well trained He-bitch you’ve all allowed yourselves to become.

        Your new Master is the biggest threat to the Constitution since the War of 1812 but y’all are too busy being “holier than thou”
        sanctimonious self-righteous name calling internet sandbox bullies to see it.

        I used to enjoy being a member of the prepper community and being ready to help pave the way to a better future if the Shyte were to ever hit the fan, but you sheeple… not with you.

        I can almost imagine what each of you “tough guys” looks like sitting there, pecking away, alone, divorced, kids left ya, dog doesn’t even like you any more, FOX news droning on in the background.

        Thats not how it has to be.

        Sack up. Stop being afraid of the real world.

      It all boils down to What are the legitimate functions
      of government. Our constitution outlines these in Art 1
      sec 8.Nobody seems to recognize this! There is no mention
      of healthcare, education or an air force. It seems to me
      this part of the constitution needs to be updated and
      ratified as recognized law. Currently we treat this part
      of our constitution as a sham. If we can actually agree
      on what the legitimate functions are, we can move forward
      as a nation of free people

      • NunyaBidness says:

        “or an air force”

        It’s really neat that you made an attempt at thinking and were able to come up with that gem, but they clearly called for defense of the country via armies. That those armies can now fly is inconsequential.

        Must be one of those imbeciles that demands the 2nd amendment only allows for owning flintlock rifles.

        And how do you rationalize that part about the militias in the 2nd and Art 1 Sec 8 dictates the fed gov must actually arm those militias? You down for buying me guns?

        Please, no sophistry, the militia was every able bodied male and has NADA to do with the Natl guard.

        • grandee says:

          Art 1 Sec 8

          To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

          To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

      Man I love this comment. It says it all.
      A libtard think that it is up to the federal Guberment to take care of them. They forget we are the Government, and it is up to us to take care of our self before taking care of someone else. Ain’t that the shits that they can’t take care of themselves in any way shape or form.

      Please Lord let the SHTF so the suckers off of the hard working Patriots can live free, and not have to carry the zombies/blood suckers any more. Damn they are getting heavy!

    4. Kevin2 says:

      The left actually believes that they control “The State”. With that premise its reasonable to conclude that its preferred that “The State” controls everything and “The People” control “The State”. They fail to realize, regardless of present and historical evidence, that “The State” either controls “The State” and or outside powerful entity actually controls “The State” and “The State” controls you. Independence is an alien concept that frightens the shit out of them.

      I’m MELTING! This is getting FUN!

      From the “Do They Know Something We Don’t Know” Department:

      Silicon Valley billionaires are ‘prepping’ to survive in underground bunkers

      http://www.recode.net/2017/1/23/14354840/silicon-valley-billionaires-prepping-survive-underground-bunkers-new-yorker

      Key sentence is this: “According to Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, the prepper movement among tech-made billionaires is largely inspired by fear that artificial intelligence will one day displace so many jobs that there will be a revolt against those behind the technology.”

      Maybe they will be right, but for the wrong reason (e.g., EMP, nuclear war, etc.) Personally, I think the jobs WILL come. This is what the well regarded John Mauldin (google him, his email updates are free) has said, and I think (hope!) he is right. Singapore has jobs; Venezuela does not. Stop the socialism and the jobs will come. Ludditism doesn’t work.

    8. Liberty minded says:

      I didn’t vote for Trump, and I’m not a progressive, hug a tree liberal either. Where does that leave me?

      As I see thing in D.C. (Dis-Connected) is “See the new boss, same as the old boss” until proven otherwise.

      Shrink government, repeal terrible laws, and improve freedom, and liberty…until then, I don’t buy it.

      • NunyaBidness says:

        I leaves you decided whether or not you have enough sack to take a red pill, ignore the false dichotomy of washingtard DC and vote your conscience. Those people will never represent someone like you (us) until they’re forced to.
        And that time may be coming sooner than we think. I don’t think the libtarded left is going to allow for peaceful transition of power much longer.

      AND SHTF EVENT CAN AND WOULD DO WONDERS.

      What a societal social cluster phuck.

      Nature would take its course and reduce the lower life surplus inventory.

      Its also a sign that they are mad because welfare black and other minorities will be forced to get up off your lazy drugged up ass, 6:30 am like the rest of us. There ain’t nothing controlling me because I am out of control.

      SO GET OFF YOUR STINKING LAZY USLESS ASS.

      No wonder they are screaming out nooooooooooooooooo in public like the idots. Infact it would be nice to see these usless eater, “surfs” being forced to get up off their ass, and have to fill out applications, with no transporation, no car, and no apartment, and it would be nice for them to spend some good quality time homeless like people like me, who had to tough it out for 2 1/2 years with not help. Mommy and daddy wasent coming to my resque. It was fuck me. What resqued my sorry ass was none other the the SHTFPLAN.COM. now when shtf stikes, I just say, oh, I am not in shtf, I am closing on my land later on this year, my own person SHTF GETAWAY. I am buying that shit cash, fuck the bankers, fuck them. welfare people must be immediately kicked out of housing, the apartments demolished, and have them focable put out in the streets. This shit needs to start immediately in Houston. Too much of this bullshit going off in my city.

      HCKS.

      Welcome to the shtfplan.com trolls.

    11. Plan twice, prep once says:

      Actually I’m a bit devistated.

      It’s hard to imagine I could actually publicly disagree with my president and not be called a racist!

      Kind of like Jane Cutain doing that old news segment on Saturday Night Live, and not having Dan Aykroyd say, “Jane you ignorant slut”!

      Amazing the left now calls you a racist if you support any President Trump policy, regardless of topic or effect. At least the stupid Globalists are consistent.

      Great song.

    13. I do not believe Trump is theater. The left right theater got out voted by the people and the electoral college vote fair and square.

      The crying is by two types:

      1. The chews Marxist globalist who hate the cattle/masses they in their Supremisist phylosophy are plotting and planning to either enslave or kill slowly or by more violent means. This group is small but they lead the rest and are the reason for war and poverty and social decline. They are very very diabolical psycho sociopathic evil persons.

      2. These are the masses/the herd/the brainwashed. This is half the citizens of voting age. They are the target for the first group who uses them but actually hates them.
      This group has been lied to all their life. They are manipulated by the media, TV, movies, modern music lyrics, subliminal messages, celebrities, and politicians. These are victims of group one. Group two is hated by group one but they cry together.

      This all leads me to one conclusion. Group two can be transformed into an ally. Group one is the enemy who must be exposed thereby losing much of his power. Ultimately group one will recognize the insanity of his beliefs and humanity will be freed or the virgin mother will stomp him in the head as prophesied. In other words, the leaders will be killed.

        A true dupe. …while yammering about others being brainwashed. Which is wrong.

        They’re the same group of people that believe in gigantic, benevolent govt that’s going to endlessly provide for them. The difference is between the revolutionaries and the evolutionaries.

    14. “Free society”?

      Much like gravity, there is no consistent explanation of how that really works…cuz ya know they ain’t gonna letcha alone.

      In order to have a truly free society, you would have to kill all the assholes that steal your wealth at the point of a gun. Then you would have to kill the sociopaths that protect and enable the assholes.

      Well, then you may have a free society where no asshole thinks he can order you around and if you become an asshole you die.

      Death to the assholes.

      and other gibbs me dat users a Zyklon B air freshiner!

    16. Brian says:

      For all the people who believe they can reform the Federal government and make it run right, the worst thing that can happen to them is to actually get the job. Pride cometh before a fall. Wanting to be President is the greatest arrogance in the world. If God did created the world in six days and you were with him on the seventh day, he wouldn’t have been able to rest because you would have been telling Him what He did wrong!

      Devastated? Hell no…this is the happiest I’ve been in a long time. Eight years, as a matter of fact.

    19. Ill be even happier when the mass deportations begin, and President Trump begins talking about cutting out welfare, EBT, and LBJ’s “great society”programs.

    20. Infantry Veteran (4x's) says:

      Hey Reality Check,

      I can’t wait to meet you and your kind when the ship starts sinking.

      America Haters, such as yourself, will go straight to hell because I’m personally going to be packing your sandwiches. The traitor in chief, Barry, is now out so let the games begin. The name of the game now is called, You Lose because you lost. Soon, you and your America Hating kind is going to lose it all.

      Count on it because I am.

      In the meantime, I will do my best to make things as good as I can for those around me, whether they are an insane liberal or not. It’s time to love now, because the time to spread the hate, if pushed to spread the hate, will be devastating. We don’t want that. We want love!
