The Last Refuge

We are self-identified as The Last Refuge for a very specific reason.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”

[…]  When Congress refuses to act, and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them. (Applause.)

I’ve got an obligation to act on behalf of the American people. And I’m not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people that we were elected to serve. (Applause.)

Not with so much at stake, not at this make-or-break moment for middle-class Americans. We’re not going to let that happen.

President Barack Obama (2012)

In other words, Obama spits on separate-but-equal branches of government. He urinates on the Constitution. And he is quickly, inexorably, transforming this nation into a Banana Republic.   So, Democrats and those of like-minded association:

Do you recognize the serious price you are going to pay for your failure to stand up for American laws, traditions and ethics ?   You will live, eventually, to regret tolerating lawless, anti-American behavior that undermines the foundations of this Republic.

President Obama’s behavior — and its subsequent approval by Congressional leaders like the deplorable Harry Reid and the despicable Nancy Pelosi — represent a slap in the face of every Marine, Soldier, Sailor and Airman, who take an oath to uphold the Constitution — and then put their lives on the line to follow through with their sworn oath.

We carry a greater understanding than most; Realizing something self-evident, liberal promises are merely full of feel-goodiness, and utterly empty platitudes, designed entirely to tug on emotions and embrace victimhood and entitlement mentality.

They are used solely to encourage people to never think on their own. And it can be dangerously tempting.   They sound nice in unexamined theory. Everyone likes free candy! So, it’s easy for some to believe that one should have A Right to everything one simply wants.

Occupy Wall Street Protester – New York City 2011

President Obama and the liberal congress are showing Americans these twisted theories in practice, and the truth is being revealed, albeit unintentionally.   However, obviously given the recent election results, few are yet fully comprehending the totality of the scheme.

The reality is that throwing (other people’s) money around, the feel good-y meaningless rhetoric and naive utopian ideas never work in practice. In fact, they do the opposite. They are actually detrimental in practice. Worse, they aren’t even meant to work; they are only meant to gain and keep Power.

They are meant to keep the citizenry dependent and sheeplike. The Left would like nothing more than to change “We, the People” to “We, The Sheeple.”

It might be impossible to wake up everyone, but more and more people are waking up each day.   And as each unintended consequence becomes visible they will come to understand that there is only one thing which everyone does have a true Right to, which doesn’t require a monetary “stimulus package”, yet is also oh-so-invaluable, nor does it have a need for “reform.”


Now in the interim period between “cause and effect”, which is right where we currently stand, there are divergent approaches.    Bill Whittle has one, and Ann Barnhardt has another.     Another track similar to Barnhardt is within the construct of Robert Oculus.

You will note that all three points of similar diversion contain a dispatch of modern resistance.    Whittle advocates for a separate and exclusive parallel society.   Ann Barhardt advocates for extreme lawlessness and publicly, angrily, Going Gault.   Robert Oculus just cuts out the infection, abandons the limb and focuses on the remaining healthy bit.

The problem with all 3 approaches is reflected in the picture that leads this post.   “Isolation”.     How many conservative patriots can actually live, function, and survive beyond those walls?   Are we just willing to write them off?  Are You?

Is she not yet still worth fighting for?

We think so.

And while we’re fighting, we are not going to tell the cannon holders what Trees we are hiding in, or what our entry point is into the collective society behind the wall.  What separates the American Patriot apart from any other person in the world is an American would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees.  That means something to us, and perhaps to you also.

Knowledge is power – A single sniper, perfectly willing to die for principle, well skilled, well-trained and severely disciplined, can keep an entire selfish battalion in fear while halting their advance.

Want proof?

Example:   The entire monolithic collective governmental legal apparatus is united against George Zimmerman – Yet an insignificant Treehouse can hold back the opposition.

The Treehouse is truly going to be a REFUGE in the days ahead.  And as that becomes increasingly important, we will guard the DNA of it even more fiercely.   This is a place where like-minded folks gather to restore their strength and build themselves up for the ongoing battle, whatever form it takes, and we will protect it.

    Dear Conservatives;

    We tried it Mitch and Boehner’s way since 2010. We blocked every insane thing that 0bama, Reid, and Pelosi came up with and saved the nation……for awhile. Then the 51% majority in the nation blamed the conservative Republicans and voted to keep 0bama and his policies.

    0bama never owned any of his pet legislation or a legacy……other than 0bamacare which hasn’t kicked in yet because of our blockage.

    I say let them have it……..everything they want……..the sooner the better. 0bama dreams it up and puts it in legislation……let 0bama and the Dem0crats vote it in…..have all the conservative Republicans abstain…..Let it all burn down to the ground……then we can rebuild.

      Recently awakened Conservative here…

      As much as I agree with the “burn it down” mentality, I am fearful of what that actually entails. I hear some people say “Lets just go into civil war and get it over with.” The first American Civil War cost approx. 625,000 lives between the union and the confederate armies. Who knows how many civilians were slaughtered by both sides over the course of that conflict?

      Do you really want a second?

      If we do go into another civil war, and somehow some remnant of this country manages to survive, where then will the blame be cast? Will it go to Obama and the Democrats, who put the destructive policies in place? Or will it go to the Republicans/Conservatives, who stood aside and let it happen?

      Over the last two months we have seen the reports and leaks by various sources regarding Benghazi. Those Americans called out for help when they came under attack, and Obama and his cronies turned their backs on them.

      This nation is under attack by the socialist policies that the Obama administration is enacting. Will you turn your back on America when she needs you the most?

      • I wholeheartedly agree. “burning down the house” is defeatest. The progressives must be positioned to “own that which they create”.

        Progs are master deflectors and you cannot win against them from a position of defense. You must be on offense and allow the citizenry to see the failures within their policies.

        So long as you accept responsibility for attempting to diminish their damage, you are positioning yourself to be the easy blame for their failures. The only way to win is to let their policies play out – while the public accepts whose policies they are.

        This is why I advocate in the strongest terms for redefining the lines in the sand. Do not allow bailouts of states – make the individual states and local governments pay for their own unsustainable spending policy. Do not constrict spending at the Federal level, instead constrict what the spending is permitted on as it pertains to States.


        • sirwin says:

          That is exactly why Romney was so strong in the first debate. He wiped the floor with Obama over his economic track record, and the nation got to see it. Maybe we even saw some shame in Obama, when he could not meet Mitt’s eyes towards the end.

          I fear that attacking the progressives and their policies is not enough though. We also need to go after the entitlement class and the low information voters who put them into power.

          Here is a good example of the voter base I am talking about:

          How we reach through to this kind of ignorance, I do not know.

          • ragnar says:

            You do not reach them. Ever. And in this doomed democracy we have become there are over 50% of them. I despise them. So, what to do? I say let them destroy themselves while we escape. They will destroy themselves if we refuse to help. They rely on the productive to be their beast’s of burden. Not this puppy. I won’t do it period.


            • Davud says:

              “…while we escape.”-

              Assuming that wasn’t meant entirely in a figurative sense, escape to where, however? I’d punch my ticket and leave now…


  2. Larry Dribelbis says:

    This may not be on point with the main idea of this post, however I must say I like the idea that Whittle presented. I’ve actually considered the idea for education in the past, only on a community level. But the purpose of this comment is to say I don’t think Whittle is saying not to fight for this country. I think he just has a different way of doing it.

    The end result with the idea he discussed is that the hardworking virtuous people end up back on top, just maybe not in our lifetime. That’s okay as long as we can plant the seed. It also seems to me that, although he says what he proposes isn’t going Galt, it has some similarities. The difference with his idea is that the producers don’t stop producing for the thieves, they just work harder and build in the shadows. The producers give exclusivity to like-minded people in their dealings. This is exactly what the people in Galt valley did.


    • Larry Dribelbis says:

      Galt* valley. The difference is that the people that went “Galt ” isolated themselves from the rest of the world. In the real world it would be very difficult to operate under the radar in such a way. So for now, it would have to be done “hidden in plain sight”. I certainly think some aspects of his idea could work, especially on smaller levels. The biggest problem I see is that the government would be threatened by this, and if it got too big, they would most certainly attempt to shut it down.


      • ragnar says:

        I am having my own small private revolution. My little wallet is closed. Don’t shop til’ they drop. It is more fun than I have had in a long time. I feel liberated. Regardless of what anyone else does I am having a well, not a revolution. A private counter-revolution is more apt.


  3. jwoop66 says:

    I agree. Give them everything they want except for the second amendment. Lets just rip off the frikkin band-aid already.

    I’ve asked this each time you’ve posted it, but Where did you get this picture? What is it called?


    • jwoop66 says:

      Ok, I just scrolled back up and saw you have a source. Thanks!



      I think it’s called “the world in the year 3000” or something like that. It’s been around for several years…. we’ve used it more than a few times for various discussions.


    • sirwin says:

      The Second Amendment is on of the biggest obstacles keeping them at bay. They know that, and are trying to remove or circumvent it.

      We’ve seen this with gun registration schemes, the AWB, and now the UN small arms treaty talks. Under the guise of “public safety” we’ve seen gun rights trampled on for decades.

      What comes next? Confiscation?

      They can have my guns. I will give them the bullets first, at 1200 fps.


      • myopiafree says:

        Hi Sirwin – If this country deletes the 2nd Amendment – LEGALLY – then they can have what they want. It will be my freedom also, as well as freedom-of-speech. Hitler was LEGALLY elected in Germany. He was legal for three weeks. Then he declared a “threat”, and took “emergency powers”. He appointed Goring as Police Chief. Then Goring confiscated all guns (except the NAZI Party) to create a “safer and better society”. Take away the 2nd – and you can expect a police state. Wreck the economy by destructive over-spending, and you will create an “emergency” situation – as it was in Germany. Alex Tytler was more “RIGHT” than even he knew. This is indeed both tragic and depressing.


    • diwataman says:

      It’s actually a piece by Radoslav Zilinsky titled “Worth enough?”

      I haven’t looked around for the artists intention but if I were to guess I would say it’s actually more inline with what you all are against. I believe this artist would not like John Galt at all, lol. Just a guess though.

    Apparently this wonderful famous passage quote of Alexander Tytler is actually by de Tocqueville. Please look at correcting it. Thanks.
