If you're not happy with the direction of the country, go start your own. That's part of the idea being floated by a Bay Area non-profit.

06:11 pm - Help The Seasteading Institute -- only $9,176 to go!

When the ball drops at midnight this Friday, December 31st, it will not only close out the year, but mark the deadline for the Thiel Foundation's $250,000 matching grant. As of right now, we have raised a total of $240,824. This means that with 3 days remaining, we have only $9,176 to go!

Meeting this goal would be a huge accomplishment for the young seasteading movement. It would demonstrate to the Thiel Foundation that The Seasteading Institute is successfully broadening our donor base (from 6% non-TF donations in 2008-2009 to 33% in 2010!), help maintain our full 501(c)3 status with the IRS (which has requirements for breadth of support), and put us on a solid financial footing going into 2011.

Seasteading seems like the best long term solution to the problem(s) of bad government. If you agree, consider making a donation. (Full disclosure: I do some contract work for TSI, so have a financial interest in their success. But I would support them regardless.)
