West Virginia Swings for Fences

I read earlier this week that some West Virginia politicians were inviting most of Virginia to secede and join them.  (Well, that's how we got West Virginia to start with, actually:  it was the one act of secession from the Civil War that was allowed to stand.)  Now I see that their legislature is considering a state sanctuary bill that is really pretty aggressive:
A bill introduced in the West Virginia House would set the foundation to create a gun sanctuary state by prohibiting enforcement of past, present and future federal gun control.... The bills include a detailed definition of actions that qualify as “infringement,” including but not limited to:

* taxes and fees on firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition that would have a chilling effect on firearms ownership;
* registration and tracking schemes applied to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition that would have a chilling effect;
* any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens;
* any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens.
My guess is that the Feds might have let you get away with anything except the refusal to accept taxes.

Ah, west v, the real v. As maryland too closely corrupts virginia. Does not feel like a southern state.

There’s good parts even of Maryland.

The good parts are not in power. This is the same historical argument about the House of Islam, war and peace. Yes there is a house of peace and most people prefer peace and moderation but... they aren't in power. If they aren't in power, then their influence is almost nill.

This is like a shadow in people's mind. They are suppressing the truth or avoiding the truth, instead they pick out the parts that matter to them. Meaning, the State Department cannot be full of traitors because... their buddies, friends, and relatives are in the State Department. Voila!

No, that's not how it works. Whether your buddies are in State or not, whether your buddies are good or not, doesn't matter. Because they don't control the DOS.

The Deep State does. And the Deep State are not made up of "good people". Some of them are patriotic, yes, but they are also compromised.

Every place in the US is mixed of good and evil. That's how the celestial system generates the reality that people call their life on Earth.

When something is so intensively polarized towards the negative however, there's a problem. It becomes a kind of gravity well or vortex.

People don't like that idea though. They want something more relatable for Virginia. The idea, perhaps optimistically, that everything will work out well if they follow the traditions. The situation calls for a strategic reassessment however.

To clarify what I mean, most people do not have access to even 50% of the truth about this reality or what allows the Deep State to control as much as they do. They still see only the surface layers of the onion. I have linked some of the dot sources, but connecting them is a different matter entirely.

So I'll use a parable.

When a wanderer from a foreign tribe comes to the capital of the world's greatest empire, the wanderer got into an argument and felt his honor was insulted. The wanderer requested a duel which was fought and ended in a draw or stalemate. Unknown to the wanderer, this was a ploy by the local who knew that the Empire had certain laws and regulations about dueling, and used this loophole to entrap the wanderer.

Meanwhile, what they did not realize was that the wanderer was an agent, who had been programmed to forget certain things. The wanderer was there expressly to gather evidence on the corruptions of the Empire. This led to the wanderer getting into quite the struggle and conflict with the locals. They tried all various means and methods to eliminate the wanderer, but none of it worked, because of the faction hidden in the shadows backing the wanderer.

Meanwhile, the Empire had a faction that was already aware of the hidden faction attempting to address corruptions in the Empire using the stalking horse of a foreign wanderer. The Imperial faction allowed the wanderer to do as planned, because the Empire had internal traitors they wanted to use this opportunity to get rid of.

Meanwhile, a foreign super power was watching the proceedings, and sent an agent to talk to the local who first fought the wanderer. This agent asked the local, if knowing what he knew now, would he have still fought the wanderer.

Well, humanity, what do you think the answer was?
