While millions of people celebrate the Thanksgiving weekend by shopping till they drop, I won’t join them. It’s not because I’m protesting corporations, and it’s not because I don’t want to share what I have with others. In fact, I want to share with everyone so much that I’ve chosen to take a different path.

I hope you’ll join me.

Please watch this video to see what we’re working on, and how you can partner with us to help out. Scroll down to read more.




First of all, I have to be the bearer of bad news.

The US national government has accumulated so many powers for itself that when it starts using those powers, all those nightmarish dystopian young adult novels published of late will look like a walk in the park.

The feds claim the power to spy on you and everyone in the world. And they do it. They claim the power to determine whether or not you can protect your family. They claim the power to control the size of your toilet, what kind of light bulbs you can buy, and what types of plants you can grow and consume in your own back yard. They treat you like cattle in exchange for your “privilege” to fly. They deceive you so they can “tax” you for doing nothing. They “bail out” their corporate friends when the currency they inflate loses value.

They have no-fly lists, and secret kill lists.. They militarize our local police with all the extra machinery purchased with your tax-dollars for their unconstitutional wars.

They intimidate, they lie, they bully, and they deceive.

It doesn’t matter that they haven’t done all of these things on a mass scale, to you, personally. What matters is that they’ve seized the power to do so. And someday – I don’t know exactly when – someone is going to have an excuse to use those powers on you, your children or your grandchildren.

The so-called “federal” government in Washington D.C. is the most dangerous organization on Earth.


Someone had to say it.


As the late Chalmers Johnson said in a speech I saw him give some years ago, “Things that can’t go on forever…don’t.”

They simply cannot get away with this forever. They won’t.

And while some people have taken the position that the only way forward is to “wait it out” until an economic collapse happens, I believe this strategy adds to the danger we face.

In that same speech, Johnson correctly noted that throughout history most societal collapses have resulted in more tyranny – not less. Historically, total dictators like Hitler, Mao and Stalin have risen out of such events. Waiting out an unknown event only ensures that we’ll continue to have tyranny right now and also increases the potential for even more tyranny later on.

I’m not willing to take that risk.

So I’ve dedicated my life to changing things now no matter how difficult the odds might be.

I know, as James Madison taught us, that the way to stop the federal government is by employing a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union.” I know, as Hans-Hermann Hoppe taught us, that “without local enforcement by compliant local authorities, the will of the central government is not much more than hot air.”

In other words, we need to nullify.

Whether that nullification comes on a state level or a local level, we need to nullify. Whether that nullification gets done by a state legislature, a sheriff, a jury, or an individual, we need to nullify.

Whatever your issue and whatever your goal, the only way to win is to nullify. Everything else will only lead to more of the same.


I’ve sacrificed many creature comforts of modern American life so I can afford to do this work full time. I gave up my car and my cellphone. I don’t have health insurance or cable tv. I’ve only taken one vacation in the last decade and my trip to visit family this Thanksgiving is my first is seven years. I work endless hours – 8am to 1am for 5-6 days at a time is not unusual – and have been personally attacked and smeared by the establishment for my beliefs and what I do.

While I’d love to earn a good salary, go on trips, and buy stuff for my friends and family, I know that doing something good for other people is much more rewarding for me.

With you as my partner, the gift I am working to share with the world is this path to liberty.

Some people tell me that this is impossible. They rightly point out that government controls the education system, has its hands and plants in the media, and uses disinformation agents to break down opposition on the web.

While this might feel impossible to overcome, for me the only way forward is to do what’s right. For me, doing what’s right means a lifelong struggle for liberty even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

The greatest gift that anyone can receive is to learn the path to liberty. Once armed with that knowledge, they will have the freedom to use it or not.

While it’s not possible for me to give this gift to people on my own, together as partners we can get the job done. And whether they know us by name or not, generations to come will remember the gift we gave them.
