guess i may have offended some of you in this ‘movement’ by implying that i thought there may be a stalkish weirdness involved in my first meeting with your kind. i apologize but need to be honest for a second.
some questions i feel the need to ask:
- if you are just a preparatory movement (i.e. you are just preparing for ‘the inevitable fall of the empire’), why so clandestine? there is nothing illegal or wrong with forming an organization that considers itself a support group of some sort in the event of an emergency situation.
- due to the fact that i found a letter on my windshield in the parking lot this a.m. (try a plastic bag next time it froze to the glass) am i not being reasonable in thinking that this may just be a very, very localized thing?
- i assume your folk only see what i write by going through other sites? my blog is not exactly well read so i must assume that when i notice all past views have come from sites that i have posted the link on that you could very well be messing with me
- are you related to the State of Jefferson movement of pre-WW2 fame?
so to keep my promise (for now), i will post verbatim what your letter said this morning.
this is reproduced verbatim so as to not offend:
‘you will receive a correspondence from time to time and we would appreciate if you would copy it to your site in a complete manner. if you deem any info unsettling we understand if you censor said info, but we may repeat it in the next correspondence if we deem necessary.
we are not linking you to us in the slightest bit except for the fact that you are a voluntary outlet
we are not revolutionaries, but prefer to call ourselves eventualists, who see that what we are doing is purely preparatory. we are convinced that the proverbial shit will hit the fan at some point within the next ten years and want to be able to help the citizens of our five present states pick up the pieces and form a new republic
we believe the founding fathers of the American experiment were an important part of human societal evolution and the majority of their intentions and constructs need to be preserved within a republic founded on the principles they set forth. modified only in the sense that societies change but philosophical intent must be embraced and protected.
there are various academics who have been involved in our movement since the financial collapse started, and even though it is purely a hypothetical exercise, they have begun a civilization-like gaming experiment, setting forth ideas on republican governance and constitutional building scenario based on the original founding documents
we chose our potential footprint for the republic (the present states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming), for geographic, ideological, and strategic reasons that we will explain if this correspondence evolves
we will elaborate if you are interested in being a conduit. if you post this we will assume consent
we are the Republic of Jefferson.’
