Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. ~Proverbs 16:19

The Strike

What would John Galt do in our present circumstances?  The producers in Ayn Rand's classic novel  Atlas Shrugged escaped the looters by relocating to mythical Galt's Gulch.  Where is Galt's Gulch today? Where can ordinary, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens go to escape the looters?  We are the government's milk cows, their ATMs, their checkbooks.  Those being carried in the wagon outnumber those who are pulling it.  Congress refuses to defund the very agencies that are crippling us.  The Left calls us every insulting, degrading name imaginable.  Yet, we are the engine that supports most of them.  
What if...

...hypothetically...there was a day, a certain day, when all the producers across America called in sick?  Also, on that day, the producers bought ....nothing, and they didn't make up for it later.  They simply "cut back"?  

What would happen?      

Throughout the writing of her book, Ayn Rand's Atlast Shrugged was titled The Strike

“We are on strike, we, the men of the mind. We are on strike against self-immolation. We are on strike against the creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties. We are on strike against the dogma that the pursuit of one's happiness is evil. We are on strike against the doctrine that life is guilt.”  Ayn Rand

Atlas Shrugged
