For anyone paying attention, a pattern is probably taking shape regarding the formation of our various III endeavors. Trust me, it isn't money! IIIGear helps build morale and cohesion, and helps make us identifiable to one another and to the public. III Arms serves as the cornerstone for the Citadel. The Citadel will be a safe haven when SHTF. The III Congress is a deliberative, political body where our members can help shape and guide our efforts. Last night we essentially agreed that a III 2A organization is needed, one that is drastically different from the failed models of NRA and other groups that play politics for personal profit.
Now I am turning my attention to what I have been referencing as the III 300. It still needs to be fleshed out, but the general premise is that it will be filled with III volunteers who have reached a particular point in their thinking, and who are prepared to take particular actions in the face of the Evils we face today. Patriots who are proactive. Patriots who dismiss the grey-man philosophy. Patriots who have decided that home and hearth are no longer safe enough to remain home.
We III are a small group. We are separated by large distances in many cases. But in other cases, there may be a fellow III Patriot closer than you may think. We need to link up, and we need to all develop a shared skill-set and a shared goal for a political outcome.
When the world gets sporty you may be alone. You may have 1 person you can trust to cover your back. If you have been busy, you have already identified a few people. If you have been very, very serious, you've put together a small militia team. You have done some scouting, and you may have even identified a Friend or Foe list.
Now here is a question I'd like each of you to consider deep in your own heart and mind: If the SHTF tomorrow can you and your 1, 2 or 5 buddies meet up and perform as a true Fire Team? If your goal is to simply go forth and hog-tie 5 Enemies of Liberty and leave them on the courthouse steps, do you and your buddies have the skills to get the job done when trained LEO, SWAT, Guard & Reserve, and perhaps even active .mil are active in your AO? Can you avoid contact? Can you minimize losses if contact is made? Can you and your guys get home?
Think on this for a while. Talking about it online isn't doing it. If you are former .mil - how long has it been since you really did it? If you are former .mil, have you properly trained the other members of your Team?
The small Fire Team of III Patriots will decide whether Liberty lives or dies.
The small commando-oriented teams of III Patriots will decide whether Liberty lives or dies.
You will be a member of one of those Teams.
May you never have to pull your trigger.
But if you do...can you achieve your objective and get your men home?
We have men in this community who have the skills. It is time that we organize ourselves and let these men teach.
Think about it.
And think about this: Are you a III Patriot who is ready to go to work now? Or are you a III Patriot who has concluded that your place remains at home and hearth for now? There is no right or wrong answer - but your answer must be honest.
Litmus test: If you think it is bold defiance to "smuggle" a foam cutout of a Glock behind enemy lines, you are not III 300 material.
