OK - I'll ask more directly
**BUMP** The overwhelming response is obviously "yes", and I thank everyone for weighing-in. I simply can't express how much it means that I won't have to put my hand out anymore asking for help to finance III Operations. Please feel free to continue commenting if you are of a mind. Here's where we stand: Legally, the organization is locked-up, ready to roll. We could legally begin accepting memberships now - but for practical reasons it is too soon. The Organization will be a 501(c)(4) as far as IRS is concerned. That means the organization doesn't have to pay Federal income tax on most activities. There's a good and a bad to donations: The bad: Your donations/Memberships are not deductible. The good: A 501(c)(4) never has to reveal who you are to anyone, even IRS.
There is more, I'll share when prudent. Hopefully we'll have most of our blocks lined up by the end of the weekend.
1) Does anyone have any problem if we create an official III Organization? Caveat: Nothing would change except some swag and steady income for III Projects. No ranks. Leaderless resistance. You are still III whether you join or not. Everything. Stays. The. Same. - Except the III has steady income for things like the T.O.C. and helping fellow Patriots without having to make a big, noisy mess of it, etc. Money would be held by a Treasurer. Bylaws would be written in stone so no shenanigans. Does anyone have a problem with it?
2) Would you join on an annual basis? Get some swag and discounts.
3) Would you join as a lifetime member? Get some more swag & discounts.
4) Mission Statement: The Restoration of Rightful Liberty in North America.
Anyone got a problem with that short and sweet Mission Statement?
The ultimate winner is the III. Membership numbers mean we can tell NRA and Stewie to kiss our patooties. Yeah, I said it. Patooties.
