There are many reasons to “Vote with Your Feet” and move from corrupt, statist, liberal-Democrat, high-crime Nanny States to a low-population-density, extremely low-crime, limited government, libertarian, Constitution-loving, Pro-Second-Amendment, Patriotic, moral-conservative, God-fearing, safe-haven refuge in the American Redoubt of Idaho - Montana - Wyoming - Eastern Oregon - Eastern Washington - Northern Utah

Vote with your feet by moving ( to the libertarian safe refuge of the “American Redoubt” in Idaho - Montana - Wyoming - Eastern Oregon - Eastern Washington - Northern Utah or the Texas Redoubt or the Tennessee Cumberland Redoubt ( for more Bill of Rights freedom, especially Second Amendment gun rights — see

Sadly, the beautiful state of California is now a lost cause politically. But still keep fighting to restore her greatness.

American Redoubt Pages:

What exactly is the American Redoubt? See for more details from James Wesley Rawles, whose description of our Redoubt many of us wholeheartedly support.

We are “Prepared Individuals Living in Uncertain Times” is the motto of James Wesley Rawles

We Vote-with-our-Feet and have prepared “For when times get tough, or even if they don't” - the motto of Jack Spirko's SurvivalPodcast (

One could say that the American Redoubt was “founded” when Montana became a State of these United States of America on November 8, 1889, just 1 year before Idaho and Wyoming.

For those who are more attached to the East Coast and can't easily migrate to the American Redoubt in the Intermountain-West, we recommend the blog of the inspirational M.D. Creekmore who posted Joel M. Skousen, Author, Strategic Relocation North American Guide to Safe Places, on the Tennessee Cumberland Plateau solution to the “The East Coast Retreat Dilemma”:

“As a relocation specialist and designer, I found safe retreat locations and helped clients develop high security homes in every state of the union and you can too. The concept that anyone caught East of the Mississippi River is doomed is only partially valid and highly exaggerated. You can achieve a significantly higher level of safety going beyond the Appalachians to the high plateau regions of Tennessee and Kentucky. This massive and relatively unpopulated area is called the Cumberland Plateau—most of which falls within the state of Tennessee.” Joel M. Skousen ( is a relocation specialist and author of “Strategic Relocation North American Guide to Safe Places.”

22 Long Rifle

A hit with a .22 is better than a miss with a .44

Michael Bane writes about the Ruger LCR-22

The solution to the challenge is, as it pretty much is with all guns, to shoot them a lot. A .22 option allows you to shoot them a lot, and cheaply. I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that if you’re new to CCW and think a snub revolver might be the way you want to go, I might get the .22 LCR first…no, .22 isn’t the world’s best self-defense cartridge, but it is substantially better than harsh language. Secondly, you will have a gun that you can shoot a lot and that you will keep even if you decide to go to a semiauto for CCW. If you feel comfortable with the .22, it’s an easy transition to the .38 (which I’ve been carrying for a couple of months now) or the .357 version.

While the 38 and 357 are very good choices for a pocket revolver, there are those who, for whatever reason, cannot tolerate the recoil of those cartridges from a lightweight revolver, but still need something which they can carry for defense. Ruger has answered this need with the LCR chambered for the 22 Long Rifle cartridge.

Advocating a 22 revolver for defensive purposes fuels a lot of arguments. It is by no means the ideal man-stopper. If I know that I am headed for a fight, and cannot avoid it, I want a good twelve-gauge semi-auto shotgun, loaded with buckshot, or a rifle, depending upon the situation. However, I cannot easily hide a shotgun in a belt holster, so I compromise, and carry a handgun, as most of us do. Any handgun carried for defense is a compromise. We must balance power, weight, size, and recoil before deciding upon the ideal carry gun. Most of us advocate a good semi-auto 9mm, 45, 40, or 10mm, but usually end up carrying something smaller as an everyday, everywhere, pocket gun. I carry different guns from time to time, usually a lightweight bobtail 45, or a high-capacity 9mm, or one of my 10mm autos, but when I carry one of these, I still have a 38 revolver or a 380 auto in my pocket. For a gun that is ALWAYS within reach, a lightweight pocket gun is very handy. Again, we come back to recoil. I get emails from folks almost everyday with severe arthritis who cannot tolerate the recoil of a lightweight 380, and even if they could, they lack the hand strength to manually cycle the slide. Choosing a revolver, again, the recoil is a factor in a weapon which is light enough to always be present. While the 22 Long Rifle cartridge is way down on the list of reliable one-shot fight stoppers, having a lightweight 22 that holds eight shots, as does this new LCR, is perhaps the best choice available for many people.
