Another week has passed, and judging from your comments, questions, and concerns, life isn't getting any more free out there. Good thing you come by TDV for insight and investigation of the ongoing fight for liberty. This week in the feedback, something's going on in Kanada, and where to go, Acapulco or Chile?

On to the feedback...


Dear TDV,

Will Alberta, Canada, survive the US collapse? Will 4500 oz of silver bullion protect my future? What other country is the place to move?

The Internet Just Became a Dangerous Place

[Editor's Note: The following is an excerpt from today's TDV dispatch to subscribers by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The Internet is more dangerous than ever before… and not because of “child porn” or Craigslist personal ads… it is because of governments.  Within that sinister cabal of governments known as the United Nations, control-crazy members like China, Russia and the Arab countries, are trying to seize control of the free flow of information. As reported in the Wall Street Journal:

The “Flee California Now” Proposition

November 28, 2012

[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV contributor, Wendy McElroy]

On November 6th, California declared war on prosperity. Any productive person who can leave California should, and they should do so immediately. It is already so difficult to escape state taxes that even working and living abroad is not an automatic exemption. Now, with a Democratic supermajority in the state legislature, tax hikes and policy can be rubber stamped. Imagine how difficult escape may be in a few years.

Meanwhile, other bankrupt states are watching the precedent set by California. The stretch of avaricious governments across the length of America should convince prudent people to jump across a national border and not just a state one.

Anti-Business US Government Puts a Stop to Intrade Making US Customers Happy

November 27, 2012
comments: 2

Reports have been swirling around about the death of another business at the hands of a US government agency.  While those reports weren't totally true, as usual, the US Government has squashed any attempt by unfree US citizens to do what they want.  Intrade is still alive and kicking (although it probably wouldn't be if it was based in the US), minus its US customers...for now anyway.  As of December 23, 2012, all US accounts with Intrade will be suspended thanks to the meddling of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

TDV Week in Review November 25th, 2012

November 25, 2012

The demons in Hell apparently understand the value in keeping one's word more than anti-capitalist hippies and regulation-craving statists do.

First a confession: I've become slightly addicted to the series "Supernatural". I haven't owned a television in over ten years. But once or twice a year I will discover a series that I actually like and watch the entire thing online over the course of days or weeks.

Hello beautiful but screwed up world,

I realize that as a commentator on semi-important things like preserving hard-earned assets and trying to live free in a fairly unfree world that I am supposed to speak in a professional manner and not talk too personally.  But, today is my birthday and I really just want to speak from my heart today.  I truly apologize in advance if you don't like it and it is only a delete key away from being quickly erased from your own reality.  I will return to more professional writings as soon as Monday...

Happy US Thanksgiving, TDVers! Time to give thanks for the continuing loss of liberty in the devolving police state known as the USSA! Now, dig into that genetically modified, hidden tax inflated turkey before heading out on Black Friday to fight other sheeple for big ticket items that will not make you any happier or freer, in order to celebrate the slaughter of a nation's indigenous peoples! 

Sober yourself up from that with some feedback...

You Can't Secede...Because We're Exiling You!

Once again we come to you as the humble messenger and past predictor of today’s major issues!

On January 20th of this year we penned an article entitled, “Forced Expatriation Coming to the USSA”.  In it we stated, “We can clearly see that the United Soviet States of America is putting in place the necessary tools to be able to strip whoever it likes of the so-called 'privilege' of being a US citizen.”  And, yet again, it looks as though it is coming to pass.

Neither Management Nor Labor Killed The Twinkie: We All Did

[Editor's Note: The following post is by TDV legal correspondent, Jim Karger]

I came close to avoiding the Twinkie topic entirely, if only because so many have already taken it on in animated, breathless fashion. The right-wing has firmly laid the blame on the union, those greedy bastards. After all, had they convinced their members to give up more of their pay, 18,000 would still have a job and all would be making far more than the average American worker.
