It ends when 15% of us say "enough" and mean it.

Enough!

Please explain, when you have time, what you mean by 15%. Is that the percentage of citizens needed to call for a Constitutional Convention? Thanks.

I'm glad you asked. It's supposedly the amount of interest you have to get in something for a tipping point to happen, for critical mass to occur, and for the media to report on it and for it to become a 'societal issue'. Maybe it was as high as 20%.

Anyway the idea is that you don't have to convince a majority of people to change, just a substantial minority. Then the snowball is rolling.

There's some more graceful economist theory for it somewhere, I should have saved it.

So 99% was too high? lul. I bet not 15% will move their asses let alone care enough to inform themselves.

I try to stay hopeful... polls show 60%+ distrust the government. A lot of people are boycotting Google and social media. The Democrats are flipping on Israel.

I have a few questions and a bit of advice for US citizens who have watched both the videos linked here:

Do you have a valid passport? It usually takes about a month to get one but sometimes longer.

Do you have enough cash to live abroad until you are able to support yourself, and any dependents, until you are self-sufficient? If not, consider converting any assets into some sort of currency. Remember that US law does not allow you to take over US $10,000 (in any form such as gold, etc.) across international borders without reporting it.

Consider where in the world you would like to live if you decide to leave the US. Then, check on the immigration laws, cost of living, etc. in that country.

Banking laws have changed over the last few years for US citizens so you cannot assume that you can just walk into a bank in another country and open an account.

I may sound alarmist but that is because I am alarmed. Laugh if you like—I don't mind.

Yeah, just saw this from another source. 1st Epstein "suicides", now this is happening to this guy, the cover is coming of and what's underneath ain't pretty.

I dunno. They didn't arrest him. Who got the docs and laptop? Google or Justice? I can't see the PD being 100% thrilled about being used like this. They cordoned off multiple blocks.

The pigs are 100% comfortable being used as enforcers for the corporate plutocracy, they have been for 150 years. At least.

Is this part a new development? Did I miss some news?
