Has anyone out there read "Starving the Monkeys" - fight back smarter, by Tom Baugh?
I am perusing it at present and have mixed feelings. I am not reading it start to finish, that comes later.
I understand his basic premise, and some of his statigies, but I also take great pause at some of his "suggestions."
So I am just wondering what others think. I know the book is only beginning to make the rounds, but if you have read it, please feel free to give me your feedback.

Oh Gen, I think you are my only reader!
How sweet of you to ask and post a comment.
He takes Ayn Rand's principles of the "collective" and gives his way to cause them to go on into collapse sooner rather than later.
One thing that gets me is he doesn't want people to stand up and say "hell no!" when they come for our guns. He thinks you can just wait until they - The Monkey-run collective, collapse and then we can take their guns,etc. I am very pro 2nd ammendment and I think we can see from history that we need to set the line in stone there. It really may be our only chance to survive if this Second American Revolution takes the next step, which I pray it does not...but if they come for our guns... Well there is only one reason to disarm a people and it is not for peace.
We are already so resticted in what we are "allowed" to have that it is cause for great concern. We will be sheep led to slaughter Mark my words, check your history, if we are unarmed, we are dead, or worse, we will wish we were.

I'll give up my guns...ammo first.
Just hope they allow an installment plan of about 3000 fps!
God knows I'd want to be compliant and my God have mercy on their red mists..

I agree with you that we will definitely hollar 'Hell no!' if they come for our guns! I agree with you totally. Them disarming us is not for OUR safety, but theirs! I told hubby if 'they' come for our arms while I'm home alone, I'll go to jail before I give them up. (And he better not give them up to get me back!) 'Give me liberty or give me death!' (Sorry for all that....I'll have to look that book up.
