I like the idea of Death Valley .
SECESSION NOW ! I wonder how bad it has to get before people realize they actually DONT need the government , which they dont . That would be the only positive of an economic collapse , it would prove that we are the hand that feeds them , and not the other way around . There was a period in the Roman Empire , where emperors were being swapped out like changing underwear , violent power changes at the top ……….but to the average Roman , not much was noticed , why ? one reason was because the local and provincial governors were competent . We dont need those people in the Washington Soviet , we never have .

Sadly, the .gov is the hand that feeds too many, right out of our pockets.
And its unlikely to go anywhere, just too large and self creating.
Too many work for or within it to be able to shut it down.
