I am inviting conversation and input on this thread from any/every III Patriot who chooses to weigh-in. As I mentioned the other evening, a formal III Organization with tax-exempt status has been formed. I have several meetings with an attorney regarding bylaws in my near future, then you and I will have many conversations about how we want to structure our III org.
One of the first topics we need to tackle is the scope of what we intend to do. I'll start with a list just off the top of my head; some of it evolved from conversation with others. This list is far from complete, and far from written in stone -- I'm spitballin' so someone may talk me into, or out of a position, or indicate that something I suggest isn't proper.
What we decide as "the scope" of the organization will impact not only bylaws but also the Board of Directors. When it is time for a Board of Directors, I hope many of you will jump in and help pilot this battleship.
Please weigh in, but I think the organization should include in its work, the goals to help:
- bring us together
- keep working to improve morale and cohesion
- prepare our fellow III Patriots for what is coming
- consider some sort of legal fund to protect our own if needed
- put together a team of lawyers to hold rogue LEO & politicians legally accountable for actions such as the flash-bang incident against a toddler
Using Bundy as an example: I think we should have deployed the T.O.C. (had it been ready, of course) in the early part of that conflict to get the truth out to the public, expose the behaviors of the .Gov players, provide support to other Patriots on the ground, and help protect the Bundy's, etc.
As an organization, we must roll up our sleeves and get involved when SWAT murders a family at the wrong address. As an organization, I think we need to raise our voices and say "No!" when and where it needs to be said.
Obviously, we can't go everywhere and champion every cause. But we can do more. We will need III Patriots all over the country who are willing to pull a shift on the T.O.C. if it gets deployed near/in your AO. We'll need III Patriots willing to show up and back us up when we engage in conversation with a Sheriff's Dept. about his SWAT Team going rogue.
Those are just some of my thoughts. Feel free to agree, disagree, add your own. This is YOUR organization.
