Great article by Gary Harper. I believe we are short on time and need to get prepared as quickly as we can.

From all that she had seen, my grandmother was always talking of Revolution. She said you would not believe how crooked the whole thing is. And, how bold and arrogant they all are.
I just finished Max’s new fiction, Patriot Dawn. They story centers around a family in the midst of a societal collapse. I found it to be well written with an excellent story. While they are a few typos, the story flows very well and explains light infantry tactics and logistics. Maps would have helped me in the explanation of the areas especially during attacks.
The characters are built up through the story in a way that is easy to relate to. There are ups and downs, not everything goes right for the heroes and that makes it realistic to me.
Without giving away too much, the most important character is Bill to me. Without Bill’s prior preparation, the Resistance would have had a much harder time gearing up their activities if they could have at all.
I pray there are a lot of people like Bill out there.
I highly recommend this novel and I hope he expands his new fictional world much like Michael Z. Williamson did with Freehold.
I believe debate is important and there is a time and place for it. There are many blogs that encourage debate but this is not one of them.
To be clear, I am interested in what you think in regards to new ideas or constructive criticism to improve the ideas posted. I am not interested in hearing can’t, won’t, shouldn’t or couldn’t.
I believe we need to work harder at building trusted relationships, developing our own propaganda campaign outside of the internet, pressing our representatives to stand up for us, reaching out to other organizations and developing skills.
The socialists have labelled us as gun nuts and worse, they have defined the very words in the debate, they reneged on compromises agreed to in good faith, they have betrayed the Constitution and they have spent America into ruin.
The socialists have worked for decades infiltrating every part of America’s society. They do intend to fundamentally change this nation by any means necessary. Words will not change their position.
It will take time, money and sacrifice to return America to a Constitutional Republic.
Each of us that holds to the ideals the founding fathers set down in the Constitution can not do much alone but together we are formidable.
Sweat now or bleed later. It’s that simple.
Simple and powerful.

I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.
The internet is a boon to the world in that it can quickly relate information to a massive amount of people in a minimum amount of time. Of course, as we witnessed in Syria, the government can shut down the access pretty quickly. A few key hubs and you are looking at page not found on your computer screen.
These are a few good ways to expand your circle locally. Suppose you volunteered at a homeless shelter and handed out a pocket guide of the Constitution or perhaps you and a few friends could host a potluck at your church or at the local VFW post.
If you are a veteran, you should look into joining the VFW or the American Legion.
If you are uncomfortable speaking in front of groups, check out The Toastmasters in your local area. It is a great way to get trained in communicating ideas to large groups.
If you are a member of a gun club, do what you can to increase membership. I have made several attempts to contact a gun club near to me without success.
We need to expand our ability to communicate our beliefs and ideas to the nation, one person at a time if need be. We are all operatives in this culture war and we are behind the curve.
Please share any ideas you have along these lines.
Most of the blogs I read encourage training which I completely agree with and there are many excellent sources for such training. They can be expensive, however and this idea might work in everyone’s best interests.
I developed this idea watching Bill Whittle’s video after the election. I had a specific blogger who is motivated to share his knowledge in mind when I thought of this but anyone can use it. Basically, we share the cost of training. We could set up a non profit and donate 20 dollars a month for a minimum of a year. If 1000 people donated that would equal 20,000 dollars a month. It would have to be a random selection of trainees per course but we could get a lot of people trained that otherwise couldn’t afford it. It would provide needed training for the community and keep this patriot doing what we need him to do while providing for his family.
This is not to take away from the other training sources and you might have to wait for your turn.
Remember, fortune favors the prepared. I am willing to contribute to another patriot’s training. So the question is: What is your freedom worth?
I don’t know how many people have actually read the opposition’s blogs. There are many, most practically a part of the mainstream media. How did they get so big? That’s simple. They are financed by the George Soros types.
So what do we have on our side? Establishment Republican financiers which are a part of the problem.
Basically, it is up to us. Our weakness and their strength is unity of purpose. Think about the decades of propaganda to the point that now they can call for the assassination of a presidential candidate without any repercussions. All of the compromises the Republicans have foolishly agreed to with the Socialists ( I refuse to call them Democrats).
The unions, the media, and the educators have spend years upon years subverting the culture.
So what can we do?
We need to have our own psyop. I would like to see a billboard of the President on a vacation or playing the golf with the caption, My life is great. How’s yours? right outside the unemployment office. I would like to see a mailer of some of Oleg’s work. http://a-human-right.com/introduction.html
I have been reading about the Feinstein ban and the looming “war” on several different blogs. I contend that the Cold War never ended, it just shifted to a different battlefield once we were softened up enough.
The very first thing we should do is develop our communications capability. Yes, the blogs are an excellent resource to share information and opinions but it really doesn’t compete with the MSM. They control the information that is available to the public. How do we overcome that?
First, we need to develop our secure communications. There are great resources available to everyone online such as GPG. Here is a great start:
An increase in encrypted communications between your friends, family and others would be a cause of concern and stress their resources. Does the government have backdoors into these programs? Probably but they still have to spend the time to decrypt your email to your brother about your fantasy football league. Please include a message to them so it’s worthwhile. Something like:
Please send me all information about aliens so I can write a book you can use to discredit me later.
Second, we need to use go to meeting and skype to see each other face to face.
Go to meeting is a great way to have a conference call. Skype can be used to talk one on one.
Some simple rules to follow:
Don’t discuss anything illegal.
Don’t give out personal information until you have met in person.
We are talking amongst ourselves just fine but there are millions of people who feel the same about the direction of the country but aren’t actively seeking us out. I think the Chick-fil-a response proved that.
How do we reach the rest of the public?
We will get into that next.
