    Wait, is this jim donald from blog.jim, or somebody else?

    1. He’s the only Jim Donald that could put up with us.

      1. Monarchyorsomething June 30, 2016 at 2:35 pm

        Ok, but seriously, does he have a website or not? Does he not have one or want anybody to know?

        1. Yes, it is THAT Jim Donald. How many Jim Donalds do you suppose we know?

          1. Monarchyorsomething June 30, 2016 at 2:46 pm

            Yeah I figured, in my defense though if we weren’t in a dystopian world jim donald would be a super common name instead of mohammed in western countries.

  3. Great podcast! I enjoyed listening.

  4. I do not think the us government would fight one of the states like texas if they wanted to leave. Obama is no abe Lincoln. The liberals know they would never lose the presidency again without texas . Why would they want
    to keep it?

      I agree with you, but the fear would be if they let Texas go, what other competent and capable state would exit. That is the precedent set by doing so. Plus Texas, if all trends continue, goes blue in 2030s. The Feds are worried about this and have run simulations on any form of uprising, civil war 2, etc. Right now the only people who know how weak DC is are the Feds themselves and dissident right people.
