Covid pandemic mostly fake news so far,
but Communist China sees weakness
and will be sending more bat viruses to USA.
Add to human diseases in USA already.
Worse flu seasons, weak vaccinated population, sitting diseases,...
USA already has lots of other problems
Race riots, Food shortages, Smog, Pesticides, Junk Food,…
Civil war already underway?
Makes more populated areas less desirable.
More people = more problems.
Less populated areas have less viruses
less human transmitted diseases.
less riots, smog, pollution….
and often good food sources.
Why pay more to live in a big city and die sooner?
But less populated areas may have
more ticks, bears, wolves, deer,…
agricultural pollution, pig shit,
worse medical care,
leading to early death.
Especially older people must make sure there is good medical care within walking distance of home.
Often less food, jobs, services, housing, utilities, water, food, ...
Must study geography careful to choose the best survival location.
The reason for low population is some problems in the area
why people did not flock in before.
Large populations are found where it is easier to stay alive and reproduce.
But there are booms and busts.
Often underpopulated areas become overpopulated.
Such as Fresno paving over valuable farmland to build the poorest large city in California,
the new East Los Angeles that continues its downward spiral, homeless, crime,… potential riots.
Then overpopulated areas become underpopulated such as migration out of Detroit.
If you choose a less populated are make sure there are enough services there to stay alive.
It is hard to run away from problems.
If your problems are internal you will just take your problems with you.
If you can't read or cook or think or exercise then you will have problems any where you go.
Be prepared to work, do some gardening, gathering, building, hunting, fishing, physical labor and mental labor,
learning how to survive without constant help from the government and rich trying to rip you off.
The American Redoubt is a political migration movement first proposed in 2011
by survivalist novelist and blogger James Wesley Rawles
which designates three states
as a safe haven for conservative,
libertarian-leaning Christians and Jews.
Rawles chose this area due to its low population density and lack of natural hazards
a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, summed up one motivation for the movement:
"For a growing number of people, it's the designated point of retreat when the American economy hits the fan.
When banks fail, the government declares martial law, the power grid goes down."
The same article identified Rawles as "the guru of the movement".
Summarizing one of his reasons for formulating the relocation strategy, Rawles stated:
"I'm often asked why I make such a 'big deal' about choosing
conservative Christians, Messianic Jews, or Orthodox Jews for neighbors.
The plain truth is that in a societal collapse
there will be a veritable vacuum of law enforcement.
In such times, with a few exceptions,
it will only be the God-fearing that will continue to be law-abiding.
Choose your neighborhood wisely."
The American Redoubt concept is based primarily around the Rawlesian Survivalist Philosophy
including the precept "Racism Ignores Reason".
Rawles is outspokenly anti-racist and pro-Israel.
Rawles published a blog entry in 2010 titled "Lest Any Man Should Boast: A Christian Survivalist Perspective on Race, Religion, and Reason",
in which he stated that he was opposed to racism due to his Christian faith.
He covered at length his views that people are individuals and that there is no inherent superiority among races.
He observed that certain races have different genetics, but those do not matter before God.
The only thing that matters when he meets his maker, he contended, was whether he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.
In an interview by G. Jeffrey MacDonald published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rawles was quoted as saying:
"It's time to distance ourselves from the vile corruptness that we see inside the Washington, D.C., Beltway …
[The American Redoubt movement] is analogous to the Puritan exodus (from Europe).
They couldn't fit in and said, 'We're going to move to completely virgin territory and start afresh.' …
In effect, we're becoming pistol-packing Amish."
Rawles advocates a gradual demographic consolidation through political migration to the American Redoubt,
but predicts that the federal government will "hammer" any states that attempt to secede under the current political order.
"People who recognize that they are of the [Christian] remnant,
that they are God's elect,
will in increasing numbers choose to vote with their feet."
In 2011, the American Redoubt concept was endorsed by 2008 Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin,
who had relocated his entire extended family to western Montana.
It also soon inspired the launch of a weekly podcast by
Christian Libertarian journalist John Jacob Schmidt,
called Radio Free Redoubt,
and a volunteer network of amateur radio operators
AmRRON (the American Redoubt Radio Operators Network)
established in 2012.
It also inspired the launch of the blog and weekly podcast by Alex Barron, called the Charles Carroll Society,
Barron, a black Catholic Libertarian journalist, is the self-proclaimed "Bard of the American Redoubt"
who speaks from a Traditional Catholic, Constitutional Conservative, American Patriot viewpoint.
In 2013, he opined:
[Rawles] coined the term American Redoubt to explain this concept.
The American Redoubt a simple concept, it is called political migration.
... There are many groups who have done this over the years including the Puritans; Native Americans moving West to escape the European colonization
(I guess forced ethnic cleansing, but again I hope you get the point),
Americans of African descent escaping the Southern forced racial apartheid system (racial migration?).
Many, many groups move because of various reasons including political reasons.
The American Redoubt is libertarian leaning Christian and Jewish traditionalist
politically migrating from militant progressive secular states
that are becoming increasingly hostile to their Christian based western culture.
In February 2012,
The Seattle Times characterized the American Redoubt movement as appealing to "a growing number of people"
but concluded that as of that time "not all that many so far" had actually moved to the area.
In April 2012, the business/arts columnist for The Ferry County View, a weekly newspaper in Republic, Washington(
was critical of the Redoubt movement, characterizing it as driven by fear.
in 2013, The 700 Club aired a news segment that favored the American Redoubt relocation concept.
In an aside, the news story mentioned how the growth of the movement has even inspired the minting of silver coins.
2013, Christian Broadcasting Network completed a featured television news segment and accompanying article on the American Redoubt titled
Redoubt: Northwest a Haven for Dismayed Americans.
In the article they noted "... Some conservative American Christians are so dismayed with direction of the country that they're looking for a safe place for their families.
They call it the 'American Redoubt.'"
"I think that people recognize that tough times are coming.
And it's time to think about their situation,
it's time to think about how they live now,
and the security of their family,
the stability of society
and how they are going to relate to that …
But I'm finding something else, too."
. "That is that more and more people are resonating with this idea of
getting back to the land,
of living a simple,
more natural way."
It is unclear how many people have moved because of the American Redoubt concept.
James Rawles estimated the number
...well into the thousands, but it is difficult to quantify,
because the vast majority of the people who are moving are preppers,
who are by their nature very circumspect.
However look at admittedly anecdotal evidence such as the growth of Liberty Fellowship church in Kalispell, Montana
where the growth has been phenomenal,
and many of the families are moving from far outside of the Redoubt states.
Rawles does not provide figures for what he terms "phenomenal" growth of the church,
some recent meetings were attended by more than 1,000 people.
Evolution of the movement
comparing advocates of the American Redoubt to survivalists,
with the difference being that the Redoubters have
"become the shock troops for the Tea Party and openly support certain candidates."
Carlson also claimed that the political migration to western states like Idaho, Montana and Wyoming
has been driven by Redoubters seeking to be free from the federal government
and that while they disavow racism, they have chosen a location where there are no minorities.
2016 article about the movement in The Economist magazine
mentioned that "thousands of families" have now migrated to the American Redoubt
and that the movement is "quietly gaining steam."
Indeed, the election of Donald Trump has spurred on the movement.
In 2017 the Inlander said "But increasingly, they [Preppers] see more political violence in big cities,
and more of a divide between rural and urban environments.
The left's reaction to Donald Trump's presidency,
they feel, has deepened the divide,
making the day they've been preparing for seem ever more imminent."
In a Chicago Tribune article 2016, noted
It is impossible to know exactly how many people have come over the past few years,
real estate agents,
local officials and others said it was in the hundreds,
or perhaps even a few thousand, across all five states.
Here, they live in a pristine place of abundant water and fertile soil,
far from urban crime,
free from most natural disasters and populated predominantly by conservative,
mostly Christian people with a live-and-let-live ethos and local governments with
a light regulatory touch and friendly gun laws.
As of 2016,
Republican Party politics in Idaho's northernmost legislative district have been pulled farther to the right in recent years
with the arrival of conservative Christian "preppers" fleeing more populated states.
2014 two ultraconservative state legislators were elected from the district:
Reps. Heather Scott, R-Blanchard, and
Sage Dixon, R-Ponderay.
Voices of the movement
There are three primary outlets for the American Redoubt movement. James Rawles' blog SurvivalBlog.com

"how to" guides.
John Jacob Schmidt's blog Radio Free Redoubt and his radio show out of Spokane, Washington,
carries news and commentary often focused on the American Redoubt.
