Worshipping the state’s costumes

This week I was banned from the page of a “super patriot” who faithfully worships at the altar of the almighty Amerikan state.

He had posted the photo below and I evidently did not show proper reverence for the uniform of the Evil Empire’s strong-arm men.

I commented as follows:

GW: And why should being in a government costume make a difference? If you spit on anyone you should receive a throat punch. But I suppose some animals are more equal.

Mr. Snowflake took umbrage at my remark and responded as follows:

NK: Greg my friend I sure as HELL don't think a MILITARY UNIFORM is a DAMN COSTUME. This type of comment puts you in a clown suite [sic]. You being a pastor you should realize those wearing the uniform have kept YOU SIR free to preach. One more post like this and your [sic] BLOCKED from seeing anything I post.

I thought I might make the effort to enlighten the ill-informed sheeple and replied as follows:

GW: Do as you wish NK. I wore the costume of a Marine Corps Captain; I served the empire for eight years as an infantry and intelligence officer . . . Now, compared to Smedley Butler, that ain't much at all. He wore the uniform of a Marine Corps Major General, was the recipient of two Medals of Honor; and wrote: "I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism." 

-- Fighting for my freedom?? I think not. Am I more or less free as a result of all the Amerikan adventures abroad??

Here’s Smedley book: "War Is a Racket", but don't get all confused by the facts.

War Is A Racket, by Major General Smedley Butler, 1935
“It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”

It is indeed unfortunate that so many have been brainwashed by the empire. They repeat the phrase “the military is fighting for our freedom”, but when challenged they cannot explain how this is might be. So instead they cut off discussion, so as not to have their delusions assailed.

Many of them are, no doubt, good decent folks; folks who should be our natural allies; and yet they are devoted to the illusions of the Amerikan empire above and beyond anything else. They cannot or will not see the tyranny that is before their eyes.

Brainwashed to love your oppressors

In a recent Gallop poll the three most trusted institutions in the US were as follows:

   1. US Military (73%)

   2. Small Business (68%)

   3. The Police (63%)

I’ll not take exception to the inclusion of Small Business, but the other two show the extent to which the populace has been brainwashed. The primary sources of this brainwashing have been the government schools, the military itself, the corporate media, and big-time sports. I’ll have to address those specific institutions at a later date.

Too often I hear friends, who claim to love liberty and to oppose Big Government, laud the empire’s costumed strong-arm men. Do they not realize that these are the very people who are currently being utilized to infringe upon their God-given rights? Do they not realize that when the empire comes for their guns, and for their cash, and for their metals, and for their food stores, that these costumed actors will be the very individuals that they face?

And don’t fool yourself; the vast majority of them will follow whatever orders they are given. And what makes me think so? Well, they are ALREADY following unlawful, unconstitutional and immoral orders EVERY DAY.

The American military actively participates in undeclared, and hence, unconstitutional wars. They attack people in their own homelands who have done us no harm and they often kill the civilians right along with the military, dismissing them as collateral damage.

The police daily enforce unconstitutional gun laws -- unconstitutional, because all such laws are unconstitutional on their very face. “Shall not be infringed” means “shall not be infringed.” How difficult can that be to understand?

The police conduct so-called sobriety check points, which violate the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable and warrantless searches. They participate in seizure of property upon mere suspicion and without due process, violating the protections of the Fifth Amendment.

Past conduct indicates future action, so you are very foolish indeed if you look for allies in the military and police.

Yes, many of my conservative friends are confident that the military and police will support the people “when the time comes.” BUT the time HAS come and they have ALREADY proven that they will simply obey whatever unconstitutional and immoral orders they are given.

Prepare yourself to stand against tyrannical government and its hatchet men.

Deo Vindice!

Educate Yourself and Others While It Is Still Possible

Mark Twain has been credited with saying: “If you don’t read the newspapers, you are uninformed. If you do read them you are misinformed.”

Until relatively recent times, there were few alternatives to the corporation newspapers, and their successors, the corporation broadcasters.

With the advent of the internet, a plethora of news sources opened up, many of them solid and reliable; and some perhaps not so much. One can, however, become a well-informed and rational thinker by carefully searching through the reliable information that is available on the internet today. I seek to do this daily as I visit a multitude of web sites including, Lew Rockwell, The Ron Paul Institute, World Net Daily, Newsmax, The Rutherford Institute, American Thinker, Breitbart, The New American and many others – and adding in for good measure some reliable and intelligent bloggers, like The Captain’s Journal (Herschel Smith).

I would encourage everyone who reads this to make every effort to educate themselves as well. If you don’t believe that you have the time to visit these sites every day, I would encourage you to at least browse through our weekly paper, Just for Your Consideration. I compile it from information that I consider to be of interest and value.

Some of you already receive the paper as a PDF attachment to my weekly email blog. If you are not subscribed, you can request to be added to our mailings on the Free Florida First web site: 

There is also a direct link to the most recent edition of the paper at the bottom of my weekly blog entries:

These alternative and reliable sources of information are increasingly coming under attack. Virtually all of those mentioned above are being designated as “fake news sites” by the government bureaucracy, the corporate media and those who control the gateways to the internet such as Google and Facebook.

Those who desire to control us are none too pleased that you have sources of information other than their agreed upon and vetted propaganda.

Moves are underway to restrict the free flow of information on the internet by any means possible. The past is being rewritten and the present is being obscured in order to usher in a future that our controllers have planned for us mundanes. It is a future envisioned by George Orwell as a boot stamping on a human face.

Further Orwell noted: “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”

You can rest assured that our enemies are doing all they can to control the present . . . and thereby the past and the future.


Be the Resistance!

The USA: Too Big for Liberty

The monstrosity that is called the United States of America is far too big to offer anything like liberty and self-determination to its inhabitants.

Take the recent presidential election as an illustration. Consider the map below. There are 3100 counties within the states that constitute the USA. Donald Trump won 2600 of those counties and Hillary Clinton won 500. The map below depicts the counties won by Trump in red and those won by Clinton in blue.

Now consider, that as physical beings, we all live in certain geographic areas; we all occupy certain real estate, whether they be large or small. In these areas we naturally form communities, as we associate with our neighbors, who are generally much like us and with whom we learn to live in peace because of our proximity to them.

Should those in the vast geographic areas represented by the red on the map be told how to live by those who occupy the much smaller geographic areas represented by the blue, even though they may constitute a plurality of the population? And if they were to be so ruled, could that by any stretch of the imagination be called liberty or freedom or self-determination?

Now reverse situation, suppose those in the red areas were to impose their will upon those who live in the blue areas. Would not this likewise be a situation devoid of any liberty or freedom or self-determination?

Washington, DC is the seat of a vast empire that extends over a vast geographical area. The politicians in DC wield tremendous powers over the nation as a whole. In particular the US President wields great power over the entire nation. Whether we like or not – whether that was how it was intended to be or not – that IS how it is! Whether US Presidents are elected by popular vote or the Electoral College or some other hybrid method, almost half of a huge population is disenfranchised and brought under bondage to the rest of the population.

The only solution that offers even a measure of freedom is to reduce government to a much, much smaller level. Restore local, accountable and sovereign self-government. I can learn to live with my neighbors, but how do I learn to live with liberals on the “Left Coast” or socialists in New England?  Why should I even want to attempt such a thing?

I don’t care how folks on the West Coast of California or New England or even in Southeast Florida live, just so long as they leave me alone to live as I would here in the rural sand hills of North Central Florida.

Sure there are details that need to be worked out if we dissect the Amerikan monster into manageably sized sovereign units, but this is the only path to lasting peace and liberty. What we now have is not working – it cannot work – and the longer it is forcibly maintained, the closer we draw to bloody wars of self-determination. Perhaps we can find solutions short of physical conflict.

Why not try self-determination? Why not try liberty? Why not try local self-determination? There may even be a place for something like the original Articles of Confederation that allowed for a loose cooperation between the states. Anything more leads to the sort of tyranny we now suffer under. A tyranny that is at the very least aided and abetted by the US Constitution, if not actually enshrined within it.

So, here in Florida, I would say: If you socialists want Dade, Broward, West Palm, Tampa, Orlando and the areas surrounding the communist indoctrination centers (UF and FSU), y’all are welcome to ‘em – good riddance – JUST LEAVE THE REST OF US ALONE!

Be mindful of this. You can only keep people in darkness and in bondage to something like the Amerikan Empire for so long, eventually something will give and if it is left to fester long enough that something is almost certain to be bloody and violent.

Deo Vindice!

Draining the Swamp and Turning It into a Septic Tank

Well, we’re about a week and a half post-election. All the Trump supporters got what they thought they wanted. It remains to be seen if they will really want what they get from a Trump administration.

I remain doubtful that there will be any real change or that there will be any meaningful difference between a Trump administration and what would have been under Hillary Clinton. I have to admit though, that I’m enjoying all the angst from the liberal media and infantile college students.

I found a quote this week that pretty well summarizes my view of this election -- and really of all of them. It even inspired me to construct the following meme:

Voting is like buying a lottery ticket, only dumber.

In any case, I can think of no reason to participate in selecting the next ruler of the yankee empire. As I often remark: Ain’t my flag; Ain’t my country. And I come to hold that position more firmly every day. 

Choosing the next emperor does nothing towards achieving the ultimate goal of small, limited, accountable, LOCAL governments.

Donald Trump is a northeastern, liberal money-grubbing yankee. We can expect his reign to reflect who he is. One of my favorite commentators, Fred Reed, recently wrote: “This column will follow the evolution of Donald Trump into Hillary Clinton.” Fred proceeded to list a number of items that already indicate the beginnings of this transformation. (

I have noted multiple such examples of this myself. I will mention but a couple and provide some headlines and links.

First, an article entitled: Lindsey Graham Backs Possible Trump Nominees, Slams Rand Paul Filibuster Threat”

Anyone backed by that consummate neocon, scalawag from South Carolina should be highly suspect. Amongst those he thinks would be good appointments are the likes of former New York City Mayor Rudy (“Why do you need the 4th Amendment, if you’re not doing something wrong?”) Giuliani and Nikki Haley, a second-generation carpetbagger and professed “Christian” who still worships in the temples of the pagan Sikh religion, in which she was raised.

Nikki Haley has proved herself to be the enemy of all true Southerners, of their heritage, and of their faith. She joyfully orchestrated the removal of the Confederate Flag from the grounds of the South Carolina statehouse.

What I really find odd is that some of my friends in the Southern Independence movement think that Haley has no place in a Trump administration. Let me remind you again that Trump is a northeastern, liberal money-grubbing yankee. Why wouldn’t this traitorous Republican governor of South Carolina fit right in? I suppose the bigger question might be: Why would a Southern Patriot support Donald Trump to begin with? And why would they think that he would support and promote their values?

Secondly, I recommend an article entitled:  “Ron Paul: Skeptical on Whether Trump Can 'Drain the Swamp'”

Ron Paul is one of the very, very few true statesmen that I have seen in my 66+ years. He matches the optimism of the wormy compromiser from South Carolina with a very healthy skepticism based upon the character and reputation of those who are being vetted by Donald Trump for positions in his administration. Of these potential appointments and nominees, Dr. Paul notes that they are "not exactly the kind of individuals who will change things."

An old folk/rock song from my youth contained these lyrics:

   “They paved paradise to put up a parking lot”

Along those same lines it would appear that Donald Trump intends to:

   “Drain the Swamp and Turn It into a Septic Tank”

I would love to be proven wrong and have to eat crow, but there seems to be very little prospect of that happening.

I’ve wearied myself by speaking of the blasted yankee government. I shall return now to the far more important struggle for Florida’s Independence.

Deo Vindice!

Is it over yet? Please let it be over!

OK, y’all, so the liberal New York yankee has been selected as the new emperor of the Evil Empire, over the shrill liberal Chicago yankee.

I have to admit that even I can enjoy seeing the wailing and gnashing of the teeth of the liberal media and various celebrities who vowed to leave the country if Trump won.

Someone, who was once a friend (not sure he would still count himself as such), charged me with looking on those who supported Trump with contempt. That is simply not true. I think most of them are like-minded folks who have not yet been disabused of their myriad delusions concerning the Amerikan Empire. I believe that SOME of them – SOME of them -- will be awakened soon enough. Others will, unfortunately, return to their slumber, confident of their "victory" and glorying in the Trump presidency, which will essentially continue on the presidencies of the Bushes, the Clintons, Obama, etc. Really all that has transpired since the election of the tyrant Ape Lincoln.

I have ZERO confidence in seeing any real change or improvements in the Empire under the rule of Trump - BUT I am encouraged that the American people have shown their disgust and displeasure with the status quo by electing a candidate who was promoted as a genuine alternative.

Anyway, a few days have passed since the election and I think those of us who love liberty do well to sit down and try to put all of this into perspective.

A man whom I have known for many years, a man who was once called “the most dangerous man in the mid-South”, and a man that some of us know as the Moneychanger did this early on election day, before any of the results were in.

For more on “the most dangerous man in the mid-South” you can click here:

Franklin Sanders has seen the teeth of the Federal Leviathan bared against himself and his family. He stood and he prevailed. He continues to stand and to encourage others.

Franklin Sanders wrote the following commentary BEFORE the results of the election were known. We would all do well to carefully consider his words and to put them into action to the best of our ability.

The SYSTEM kills freedom, because human freedom is its most lethal enemy

By Franklin Sanders

No point in talking about markets before the election results are in, but I want to put a bug in the ear to urge y'all to think holistically or systemically.

Loads of operatives in the politics industry -- Americans turn everything into an industry -- want you to believe that changing this or that little element in the system -- even changing the president or passing some amendment -- will change things.

Nothing could be further from the truth. This is whole-blindness, staring at the parts instead of the whole and fatuously wishing that changing some part will correct the whole.

With the yankee government, we are dealing with a SYSTEM. The whole system works together, and changing a president changes nothing. As proof, look at the last 36 years. Reagan changed things? Hardly. Biggest spender in US history until that time. Same holds for all his rotten successors, & most of his 20th century predecessors.

You are dealing with a SYSTEM, where over 50% of income comes from government spending, about 3/5 of that from federal spending, and about 2/5 from state & local government spending. Read that again, & draw the obvious inference: there is NO US economy, there is a one-legged economy that cannot stand without government spending.

So am I against incremental improvements & change? Not at all, but they are bootless, worthless, & feckless unless they aim at changing a SYSTEM which stands strong because like so many piglets half of everybody is sucking on the government teat. I'm not talking welfare, either, but defense spending & subsidies, which dwarf welfare spending. Every farmer who receives subsidies, only about 20% of farmers, in fact, will fight like an enraged mother banshee to keep that subsidy. More, the banks long ago seized control of Washington, so no politician will cross them by reforming them. No politician will stop NAFTA, GAFTA, or BLAFTA shipping US jobs overseas because the corporations who profit from slave labor own the politicians.

The entire system is ordered to profit a few at the many's expense.

Technically the system is FASCISM or national socialism or corporativism. Its strength is in the number of piglets at the teat. It began in this country in 1865 and grew to maturity during the New Deal. Since then it has metastasized into every crevice of privacy and life. To continue the metaphor, the System is the cancer, and the cancer must be killed or it will kill the body.

Most of all, the SYSTEM kills freedom, because human freedom is its most lethal enemy. Government claims to be god, and so like god, it must know and control everything. Freedom cannot coexist with the fascist state, nor can privacy.

I am not against incremental change, or even political activity, but you must view it holistically and systemically. Unless your activity works to change or eliminate the system, it only wastes your time & feeds the System's political industry. Far better to spend your efforts at the state & local level, removing taxes and regulations and restoring freedom in your own community. You have more leverage there than anywhere, and certainly more than at the national level.

Bear in mind: It is a System that troubles you, not a president, not a judge, not a constitutional amendment, not one law, but an entire System that oppresses you.

So take heart: whichever vile teenager wins today, you still have plenty of work to keep you busy dismantling their SYSTEM. Never let them make you think you "are the only one who thinks like you do" or that there is no hope. Brick by brick they built it, and brick by brick we can, and will, take it down.

Franklin Sanders lives on a farm in Middle Tennessee by choice, deals in physical gold & silver, and has been writing and publishing The Moneychanger for nearly 26 years.

Remember who you are, where you came from, and who your friends are.

I think it is becoming increasingly more important to remember who we are, where we came from, and who are friends are; and that we act accordingly.

Recently my wife and I made a trip to the Conyers/Covington, Georgia area to celebrate my mother’s birthday with her.

We actually had a most enjoyable time, even though Conyers is only some 20 miles from Atlanta. Somehow we generally managed to keep to stench of that “New York of the South” at bay.  As John Shelton Reed remarked: “Every time I look at Atlanta, I see what a quarter of a million Confederate soldiers died to prevent.”

On our trip back to Florida we detoured by the Jefferson Davis Memorial Historic Site in Irwinville, Georgia.

Recently there had been some discussion of closing the state park down, due to budgetary issues. For now at least, Camden County has entered into an agreement with the state to maintain the site and to keep it open, with slightly reduced hours.

Next time you are traveling down I-75 through Georgia, I would encourage you to stop and visit. The site is less than a 20 minute detour from exit 78.

This is the site where the only president I acknowledge, the honorable Jefferson Davis, was captured by the yankees on May 10, 1865. Following his capture he was imprisoned for two years, but interestingly enough, was never brought to trial.

Some of the most knowledgeable legal authorities in the US feared bringing Jefferson Davis to trial. They were afraid that he might well be exonerated, and then the immoral and unconstitutional nature of the recent northern aggression would be exposed for all to see. Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, Salmon P. Chase, Said: "If you bring these leaders to trial, it will condemn the North, for by the Constitution, secession is not rebellion...His [Jefferson Davis'] capture was a mistake. His trial will be a greater one. We cannot convict him of treason."

As you have occasion to travel about, even if it be only within your own immediate area, I would encourage you to visit such historical sites and to do business with like-minded folks. Promote such sites that celebrate your Southern history and culture. Beyond that, I would suggest that you stop wasting your time and money with folks who hate your guts, who hate your culture, who hate your history, and who hate your faith. Such entities as the NFL, the NBA, MLB, the NCAA, the SEC, Disney, yes, and even NASCAR, come immediately to mind. Why do we continue to feed and promote those who are the avowed enemies of all that we hold dear?

So, instead of attending a professional or college sporting event or wasting your money at a theme park, why not visit a historical Southern site or a Confederate or Southern museum or cemetery? 

Throughout our beautiful Southland you will also find multitudes of cemeteries where the remains of our Confederate defenders are buried. Just off the Interstate, on the way to the Jefferson Davis Historical Site is such a cemetery in which numerous Confederate soldiers are buried.

If you look carefully you can see the cotton field in the background beyond this soldier’s grave in the photo below.

I realize that we cannot fix everything immediately, but we can do those little things that help to keep alive our Southern culture and the memory of our forebears.

By the Grace of God, let us do what we can to keep fresh our Southern memories and to starve our adversaries and their money grabbing endeavors.

Deo Vindice!
