WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
Opsec and all aside, We were wondering how of us are there in the US today. First to define our terms-organized or unorganized, state guards or other? Which groups do we include? Is the NG a militia? Do Inactive reserves count? Not an easy task. We decided that we are looking at the unorganized militia.
We took a shot in the dark, and say that if needed we could field 150,000 unorganized militia troops. That's just a guess but feels about right. Anyone have a better guesstimation, I'd be interested. Ya don't have to be specific, please just estimate-
If 3% is true the we are 9,300,000 strong. ( current population-310 million)
Why? Patriots are far and few between out here. 9 million is a lot of people, where the hell is everyone?
In case your worried about the feds snooping on us, friends, Ol Davy's got some news for ya'll- They know more about us then we know about each other or them.
why keep a low profile? unless there is something to hide.
I am out there my church knows I am militia my community my government on all levels knows i am militia I am not ashamed to show people who I am.
This is how we get more people hard to recruit when we hide in the shadows. Sure it has put me on the radar more then some but you know what I have been able to build somewhat of a working relationship cause of it.
Do what you feel need to but my suggestion is rethink your approuch brother
Here is an outline of an idea I have been thinking about for a type unit that is not politically oriented but community focused. Militia is a hard sell these days.
Is it a militia? Don't think so.What do you all think? have been Researching into Operations Other Than War and thinking about our role in it.
The Community Readiness Group (CRG) concept is based on CERT, police reserves, and similar to a volunteer fire department. A volunteer community Emergency Services organization, , whose mission is to assist neighborhood Emergency Services during times of extreme emergency or natural disasters.
While I believe in the political objective of the militia movement, we suffer from a public image problem. Perhaps a slightly different structure and mission focus could open up our fellow citizens to the ideas of self reliance and political freedom.
It could be composed of a Headquarters Element and 4 operational sections- Technical section, Humanitarian Aid section, Medical section, and Security/ Rescue resource.
Headquarters would be tasked with the Management, Deployment, Staging, Training, Public Affairs and Overall operations
Technical sections mission is to assist in the establishment, operation, maintenance and security of an communication and computer network during an emergency. Also helps provide technical expertise on electrical power, water resources, construction, demolition and other areas of technical expertise.
Humanitarian Aid sections mission is to assist in the distribution, preparation, and collection of Food, Shelter and Clothing in times of Crisis. Also helps provide Child and Animal care and locating missing relatives.
Medical sections mission is to assist in providing Emergency and Patient care in a time of Crisis. Also to help provide Field sanitation and Water treatment
Security and Rescue Sections mission is to assist in Perimeter & Area Security, Welfare Calls, Reconnaissance, Search Rescue and Extraction, Processing Evacuee's.
Basic Training should consist of- Emergency First Aid ( START) Disaster Preparedness, Basic Search and Rescue Techniques, Radio Communications Fundamentals, CERT training, Basic Rifle/ Pistol Marksmanship, Firefighting Fundamentals, and much much more.
Agreed we need law enforcement on our side so build a relationship with them let them know who you are and what your about ask them what's right and wrong from their perspective be respectful another words the golden rule.
dont go on youtube with a mask and rant thats only gonna draw negative attention. some of them will agree with you others may not but generally they respect the rule of law and if not they have to be held accountable to the law just as we do.
I have heard stories from law enforcement of cops feds etc being fired for violating others rights or abuse of power etc.
If we reach out to our brothers and sister just imagine the power that could bear as opposed to living in fear and ending up in prison cause we over step the bounds
MinuteMan I like your thinking.
Just guesstimates mind you!
I would concur with your number of Americans, but as to the 3% I would think that number would vary dependent upon a multitude of factors such as the economy, condition of things like the grid, cost of gas, oppression, and political situation and food shortages; just to name a few. That percentage above could be as low as one and as high as ten. And if everything is met to its extreme maybe 25%.
What do you think?
Outstanding Sir! I feel that as the need arises the people will rise to the occasion as they have on numerous occasions.
There will be people who want to help and need to be shown what to do. What will be needed is Officers and NCO's that can train and lead troops when that occasion comes. A few men can train many soldiers.
I also agree that a tax revolt and other types of "passive" resistance could turn the tables without violence. Keep up the fire!
I'd be careful with the morgage, I've already lost my house.
But if you stop paying the mortgages then you got the monies for the investing.
