Lincoln's "Homestead Act" might also have worked for Russia...
to give the Russian people a chance to homestead and own
their land :).. instead of letting the evil jew-oligarchs steal it :mad:




What was the Homestead Act?

The Homestead Act of 1862 has been called one the most important pieces of Legislation in the history of the United States. Signed into law in 1862 by Abraham Lincoln after the secession of southern states, this Act turned over vast amounts of the public domain to private citizens. 270 millions acres, or 10% of the area of the United States was claimed and settled under this act.

A homesteader had only to be the head of a household and at least 21 years of age to claim a 160 acre parcel of land. Settlers from all walks of life including newly arrived immigrants, farmers without land of their own from the East, single women and former slaves came to meet the challenge of "proving up" and keeping this "free land". Each homesteader had to live on the land, build a home, make improvements and farm for 5 years before they were eligible to "prove up". A total filing fee of $18 was the only money required, but sacrifice and hard work exacted a different price from the hopeful settlers.

The Filing Process

People interested in Homesteading first had to file their intentions at the nearest Land Office. A brief check for previous ownership claims was made for the plot of land in question, usually described by its survey coordinates. The prospective homesteader paid a filing fee of $10 to claim the land temporarily, as well as a $2 commission to the land agent.

With application and receipt in hand, the homesteader then returned to the land to begin the process of building a home and farming the land, both requirements for "proving" up at the end of five years. When all requirements had been completed and the homesteader was ready the take legal possession, the homesteader found two neighbors or friends willing to vouch for the truth of his or her statements about the land's improvements and sign the "proof" document.

After successful completion of this final form and payment of a $6 fee, the homesteader received the patent for the land, signed with the name of the current President of the United States. This paper was often proudly displayed on a cabin wall and represented the culmination of hard work and determination.

The Homestead Act remained in effect until it was repealed in 1976, with provisions for homesteading in Alaska until 1986. Alaska was one of the last places in the country where homesteading remained a viable option into the latter part of the 1900s. The Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 substantially decreased the amount of land available to homesteaders in the West. Because much of the prime land had been homesteaded decades earlier, successful Homestead claims dropped sharply after this time.

The Homestead Act of 1862 is recognized as one of the most revolutionary concepts for distributing public land in American history. Repercussions of this monumental piece of legislation can be detected throughout America today, decades after the cry of "Free Land!" has faded away.

Both Australia and the USA grew and progressed under laws
promoting WHITE immigration.... so why not modern Russia :)

A Russian Homestead Law would entice the ETHNIC RUSSIAN
expatriots to return to the fold ;)

And, also it would entice other desireable WHITE immigrants ;)

how much worthwhile land is there in russia? If I was Russian (thank god I am Ukranian American) then why would I claim 160 acres, or .12345678 hectares of shitty Russian/Siberian land?

nice idea sweet heart, but I recommend staying in Houston or Palestine Texas.

Two additonal factors to consider:

1. Early homesteads were successful because there was NO property tax. If there had been property tax, the homesteads would have reverted back to the government.

2. There was only one homestead per family. If someone left the family homestead to live elsewhere, they could then qualify for their own homestead.

Like I said... when the massive number of NON-Whites
now pouring into this county have overrun the USA...
which might be next week :eek:... then you will be
singing a different tune !!

There is only one thing that *might* save the USA from
sinking forever in a perverted miscegenationist crime-ridden
cesspool... and that is if Dubya would become King Dubya...
in fact, if not in title... and used police state like powers to
take back the nation from the evil perverted miscegenationist
ANTI-CHRIST JEW/NWO that is destroying it :eek: :cool:

There is nothing wrong with Russian soil, Uncle Sam and BTW you are now a Ukrainian American??? I thought you said you had been a secret agent with Securitate?

Well you certainly get around.

Russian soil is among the most fertile on the planet.

Russia is the granary of Europe.

About the act Atossa, did it limit the holders of land to whites? even after slavery was abolished or was it beforehand?

".... and no one will make them afraid." :)




Micah 4


The Mountain of the LORD


In the last days

the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established
as chief among the mountains;
it will be raised above the hills,
and peoples will stream to it.

Many nations will come and say,

"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD ,
to the house of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths."
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

He will judge between many peoples
and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.

Every man will sit under his own vine
and under his own fig tree,
and no one will make them afraid,
for the LORD Almighty has spoken.

All the nations may walk
in the name of their gods;
we will walk in the name of the LORD
our God for ever and ever.

The LORD 's Plan

"In that day," declares the LORD ,

"I will gather the lame;
I will assemble the exiles
and those I have brought to grief.

I will make the lame a remnant,
those driven away a strong nation.
The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion
from that day and forever.

As for you, O watchtower of the flock,
O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion,
the former dominion will be restored to you;
kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem."

Why do you now cry aloud-
have you no king?
Has your counselor perished,
that pain seizes you like that of a woman in labor?

Writhe in agony, O Daughter of Zion,
like a woman in labor,
for now you must leave the city
to camp in the open field.
You will go to Babylon;
there you will be rescued.
There the LORD will redeem you
out of the hand of your enemies.

But now many nations
are gathered against you.
They say, "Let her be defiled,
let our eyes gloat over Zion!"

But they do not know
the thoughts of the LORD ;
they do not understand his plan,
he who gathers them like sheaves to the threshing floor.

"Rise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion,
for I will give you horns of iron;
I will give you hoofs of bronze
and you will break to pieces many nations."

You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the LORD ,
their wealth to the Lord of all the earth."

*******

The Act was after the War Between the States... it helped
promote western expansion... I don't think it restricted race...
but the vast majority who used it were WHITE :)


Tsar Vladimir could use it as a basic blueprint to help formulate
his own plan that would be suitable for Russia :)

Btw... I agee with Pumpkin above about property taxes...
they are NOT Godly and would destroy the incentive
to own property.

Also... once property was in the hands of the people...
it wouldn't hurt to also enact a sort of "hereditary farm"
law like Nazi Germany had... that was designed to KEEP
the large productive farmlands in the hands of the "volk"
who are the bedrock of the nation and culture :)

Who ever sent me the email apparently didn't like
my "Homestead Act" idea for Russia... but he indicated
he lived in the USA... whose very success is based
upon that Act's concept... ie, GIVING [notice that is
giving, not selling] government land to desirable
hard working people [notice that is people who will
work the land themselves and not land speculators]
to populate unpopulated vast areas of the country !
