I have grown increasingly concerned about the future of our country. It seems that there is little an individual can do, aside from being politically active and donating funds to conservative candidates (both of which I have done). I do not want to see us lose this country to Marxists. I do not want to see us lose our rights, any of them. I am at a loss of what else I can do as an individual? Any suggestions?

My wife and I were just talking about this this morning. People sit and talk, but that is all it is TALK. The government is just sitting on their hands be it fed or local. My state is LOST. We really are. Our solution was to move. So we did (In April). I now live out in the middle of nowhere. The closest town of any size is 30 miles away. But I still don't really feel great for my country. If there is a legitmate answer I am all ears. Because I feel we are doomed.

Kind of think you got those covered. I preach to those who really need it -- non face covering, refuse to admit the 6 foot rule folks. Let them know their POTUS has done more for them than any "D" lately and pray they come out of the dark side.

If the authorities won't enforce the law and protect law abiding citizens, there is an alternative - but it is not a desireable one.

What to do?
Easy!
Get your friends and neighbors out to vote!

Talk-up why they should vote as conservatives or Libertarians, rather than as Progressives.
Call attention to what the Progressives have, um, accomplished, and all of the harm it has done so far.

Don't waste your time trying to convert hardened Socialists, but rather move quickly on to more receptive minds and the fence-sitters.

We are all going to become either active members of the militia or part of the statue-yanking, everything-hating mob before this particular circus leaves town. What to do will become readily apparent either way.

The only thing I can think of is linking together with like minded people in your area for safety and protection of property.
I wish there were milita in the area who weren’t filled with Rambo like folks.
Bingo on the first sentence. The second sentence would likely get you on the government's s&%t list - but considering the alternative...............

I don't know. We've all read the warnings that have come down thru the decades.
Here we are. A lot farther down the slippery slope than anyone could have imagined. We went off the edge a long time ago.
I think the deep state is patiently awaiting and hoping the push back from the right will give them the excuse they need to step in. They've certainly been ignoring the sedition from the left.
Whom can you trust ?

One word--organize! And I mean with folks who will walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

Talk to people, try to help them understand what is happening and why - get them out to vote. There will be other things if this doesn't work. Help them prepare. Know where those around you stand. We don't want to speak of what must happen and be put on a list somewhere, but you should have a plan by now. Pray the need to act does not come to pass.

I was gratified this past week when one of my LDS friends from the sheriff's office who lives more remotely than we do, invited my wife and I to come stay with he and his wife if civil unrest comes to our area.

The only thing that gives me hope is that the Left is very vocal and very, "in your face". However, there's a reason for the term, "silent majority".

How many of those rioters, Antifa punks and BLM actually go to the polls and vote? That would require effort.

There are 2 choices in November. One, while imperfect, will keep the Constitution intact...especially the 2nd Amendment. The other will plunge us into Socialism and the destruction of the Capitalist system.

Turning out the vote in November is all we have to stop the Left.

Trump does seem to be the only adult in the room - a sure sign that something has gone horribly wrong! But you are right in that he is our best political hope.

Let me see if I can get this right this time. LDS believe in "Beans, Band-Aids and Bullets. Where I moved to, there are quite a few of them (Me Included) We are developing a "Got Your Back" or Mutual Assistance Group. I have also let some of my like minded friends from my old neighborhood know the same offer exists.
