Please allow me to introduce myself. I have been an avid reader of this forum since 2009. Yes. You read that right. I feel like some of you are identified by me as friends. I hope to be able to share more of myself in the coming months. I have been a very private person. What I have learned here over the years has helped me to prepare my family. I am so very grateful. I live in the mountains of SouthWest Virginia, USA on a mountain farm that I hacked out of the wilderness with my own hands and some equipment. I am a constitutionalist. I used to identify as a Republican. I believe socialist and collectivist philosophies are antithetical to our constitutional republic and the great lie of the left is that we are a democracy. I worked in Washington for many years. I call it, Mordor on the Potomac. September 11th is not Patriot's day. April 19th is Patriot's day. And we are already in a fight for our survival. I look forward to engaging in enlightened discussions with many of you. And to the propagandists of the failed philosophy I say to you, bring it. Thank you for taking the time to read my first post.
