Somewhere they can fish and hunt and shoot to their heart's content with no "greenies" telling them otherwise. This is the place!
I don't like the militant restorationists very much, but I would not wish the Aleutian Islands on anybody.

Just read about the WW2 campaign there sometime. ...

WA state Dems put up a website cancelmattshea.com. The summary timeline fills in some back story on Shea's shenanigans.

A few years ago, the State GOP would have thrown Shea under the bus by this time.
How times have changed.

That website would have been more effective for the intended audience had it not included the S-word at the bottom.

I have indeed read up about it. That's what makes it a perfect location for these cross-eyed Nazis' new Thousand Year Reich.

Shea interviewed by a John Birch Society moron:
YouTube Video This video is not hosted by the ISF. The ISF can not be held responsible for the suitability or legality of this material. By clicking the link below you agree to view content from an external website.
I AGREE


The first few minutes consists of The Muslims Are Coming paranoia. Then a few minutes in defense of Dominionism replete with poor me, ever the victim. Wraps up with Shea promoting the John Birch Society.

I live near a small town inside the borders of proposed Liberty State. In the local paper events section, there are listings for Farmers Market and other local events. It's surreal to read about the local Liberty State chapter needing a new chairperson, alongside the other mundane listings. Tra la la.
