WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
The Apostle Paul exhorts the church: "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." 1Co 1:10
I have heard that there are divisions among the brethern within the militia movement. This ought not to be. Nothing destroys unit cohesion faster than discord. It creates doubt, suspicion, and factions. Those who engage in "sniping" need to understand the damage being done not only to the target of such backbiting, but also to the source.
I feel that we are moving into the final stages. The threats we have long heard of seem to be coming nearer. The rhetoric is growing louder. The danger is rising. The militia is poised, but not quite ready. We still have to meld our forces into a solid cohesive front. Our in-fighting gives our enemies the needed wedges to exploit the natural weakness of self-interest and personality conflicts. Of the threats we face: agent provocatures, dissipators and moles, the most dangerous are those who sow discord among the breathern. Scripture says:
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Those who threaten our Liberty and our Constitution, along with those to twist, distort, and ignore the Constitutional chains that bind them as servants of WE THE PEOPLE, are increasing their acts of oppression. The "long train of abuses" spoken of in the Declaration of Independence is growing longer with each passing day. Soon, there will be bloodshed as the forces of darkness try to supress the soldiers of light. If we are not united in our cause, we will be hindered by our own doing! This cannot and must not happen! No soldier wants to be hampered or weakened on the eve of battle.
That individual who stands with you on the battle line or in the foxhole has dedicated himself to fight for liberty against the forces of tyranny. That individual may give his life to save yours. Shouldn't that fact alone make that person worthy of your respect? Why then do we wound them with our cutting words, criticisms, fault-finding, rumors, and other things that weaken him? We should be lifting up each other, encouraging each other, forgiving each other, BECAUSE THAT INDIVIDUAL who is willing to give his life deserves respect.
Why then the backbiting, bickering, and fault-finding?
To those who continue to wound our fellow militia members with words: Stop it now!
To those who listen to criticism and rumor: Stop it now!
To those who are the target of lies, rumors, and idle gossip: Rise above it.
It is said that there are only two people who will tell you the truth about you: An enemy who hates you or a friend who loves you. Scripture says: "Faithful are the wounds of a friend. . ."
Do not take all criticism as an attack against you personally. Criticism can be a good thing, but for those who give criticism, do it in the spirit of love. And to those who receive criticism, consider that it may be useful. If there is some truth in criticism, filter it out and consider that it may be accurate. Use it to correct a deficiency or mend ones way. Once that is done, forget it, drop it, bury it!
I urge you all to settle the arguments. Be the first to apologize and to foster harmony. Reach out to those you are at odds with. Be the one who seeks reconciliation.
We have little time remaining before we will forced to work together. Better to learn to work together now.

Thank You Mr.Olson:
Very well thought out and presented!
Without unification we are doomed to fail,and this is not an option for us or the future of this great country!!
This is unfounded and has not been proven out Frank
This mail has been circulating for nearly 2 weeks now,and there is no confirmation.
Please rest assured this just another attempt to scare our membership!!!!
Getting ready means a lot of hard work in doing so. No time to get all upset and angry with each other. We have our enemy out there checking us out as it is.
We do not need any infighting or just harsh words.
Reserach, research and more of the same is what we need. Ears and eyes open, listening and watching is what we had best be doing.
Sooner or later we will likely be facing that enemy and we had best be ready to do so.
Very well said Minuteman: LETS NOT FOCUS OUR ENERGIES TO DESTROY EACH OTHERS OVER DIFFERENCES........I posted a blog about illegals and I was chewed up by some members here; I did not say
anything back or replied.
Instead just like you said: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TO MAKE THIS MOVEMENT STRONGER and BETTER for FREEDOM.
UNITED WE WILL SURVIVE
"We must all hang together or we will surely hang separately."
I've said this to many people over the last year and a half. We haven't had much of a problem with infighting, but we do have a problem with "secret squirrels"!
These are the people that come to the meetings, get together with other members and tell them that they have no chance against the gov't (or Chinese invasion, or ?) so they might as well form a "survivalist group" and bunker down and "wait until it's over". For some reason they seem to think they'll be welcomed as patriotic heroes simply for surviving.
I try to tell them the meaning behind the Franklin quote above, "if we don't stick together and stop them before they get to our homes, what chance do you think 3 or 4 of you hiding in a basement will have?"
Be careful of infiltration by COINTELPRO..divide and conquer.
This has been the scenario since the attempted bombing of James I by Guy Fawkes.
There is always an insider, whether it be the Black Panthers, Klan, Patty Hearst's Organization..there is always an FBI or CIA operative involved. Those who doubt need to explore Webster Griffin Tarpley at tarpley.net and his work. He speaks of a British operative in the Republic of Texas movement resulting in the jailing of Richard McClaren.
Members should be careful and vigilant.
