Molon Labe! -- Come and Take Them!

4.19  ·  Rating details ·  170 ratings  ·  16 reviews
After a decade of retaking their stolen freedoms, the people of Wyoming (many of them newcomers) are forced to finally confront their jealous masters in the U.S. Government. Can a lone, courageous state successfully resist federal tyranny, or has the Bill of Rights been reduced to a myth? Can an allegedly free people act free, or is our liberty just a 4th of July farce?

American Redoubt
Mar 23, 2013 rated it it was amazing
This is what I learned from this awesome book.

Seriously considering the dismal state of the U.S. economy, massive government debt and overspending, the money printing out of thin air by the Federal Reserve (QE3 - printing money like it's going out of style, because it IS going out of style), and the U.S. Debt to GDP ratio.

Thus, it seems time to get out of the stock market soon, cash in your IRA-401K paying the 10% penalty and get reinvested in tangibles like the "Five B's": 1.) Beans, 2.) Bullet

Interesting book written by a man who is deeply knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects, including the law, case history and legal precedents; US history, both recent and of the country's founding and its founders; the entire spectrum of information related to virtually all kinds of guns, ammunition and other weaponry; politics and the mechanics of voting and ways to determine and influence election outcomes; and much, much more. This fictional work is replete with references to real people ...more

The preview in the back of Boston's Gun Bible was a serious draw but overall the book ran out of steam. The narrative is more of a choppy series of vignettes; still one of the better of its genre though. (Patriot-porn)

Libertarian dream

I can easily imagine a World like this one. Well written and great story, I loved it. If you can’t imagine a World without Police or government you might want to skip

Is liberty in our time possible? Can coercive governments be eliminated and replaced by voluntaryism? I hope that it is and they can. "Boston" details a plan for such freedom, and I wish that such a place as Preston's free state (Wyoming in the book) existed in the U.S., but instead liberty is infringed by the same government that should preserve it. A good story; as Molyneux notes, the U.S. tends not to invade nuclear powers; all the riflemen in the world won't be protection against tanks, miss ...more

this book is interesting, it has problematic language and other issues. However it is interesting, the books premise is that Wyoming takes full advantage of the interstate commerce clause in a crumbling America. It creates a bastion of freedom a Libertarian Utopia if you will. in an extremely simple and flat sense. It's almost childishly silly to think of how easily this all falls into place. Don't get me wrong i enjoyed it as I tend to enjoy stories like this however it is a simple and flat sto ...more

A novel about a violent rebellion against the unconstitutional American Police State. What's not to like? A book of ideas that, unlike "Unintended Consequences," also contains an electoral political component, and a charismatic main character who provides a figurehead to the libertarian movement. Well worth reading.

great story!

2020 state still free and standing against an intrusive domineering government

a story about real life. the free state movement is real. people voting with their feet is real.

somewhere, sometime, this will meet the bonfires.

Couldn't finish. I've read a lot in this genre. Way too much exposition not enough story.

Great book about freedom, liberty and gov't interference. Not as well written as Atlas Shrugged or Unintended Consequences...but very entertaining and thought provoking.

I loved the Boston T. Party Gun Bible. It had a lot of good information nestled among the chaff. This book has more chaff than good information and some very poor writing.

It was interesting, but also pretty biased. Some of the more thoughtful parts were overshadowed by the loony propaganda and murder. Also a bit disjointed.

American author known for his libertarian stances on privacy and arms.

He is also one people behind the Free State Wyoming project whose goal is to bring people of "demonstrably ethical character" to the state of Wyoming in the western United States to encourage "political liberty, free trade and voluntary cooperation."
“If you do not have — right now —an FAL, M1, M1A, or HK91, then there is something you have chosen not to own for your freedom. If you do own such a rifle but cannot — right now — from offhand position hit a dinner plate at 100yds within 5 seconds on demand without fail, then there is a skill you have chosen not to earn for your freedom. If you are not a Rifleman — right now — then you have announced to the world that your commitment to liberty goes only just so far. If you will not spend a summer and the price of a used jetski to become a Rifleman — to become a deadly foe of tyranny — then you are just mouthing platitudes, treating liberty as a hobby and expecting brave men to do your fighting for you. If you're not a Rifleman — you're just a hobbyist. By choosing to move to a state where you can't become a Rifleman, a hobbyist is what you'll remain.” 0 likes
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mill” 0 likes
