The III %

I do not claim a political party, but if I did I guess I would identify with the Tea Party because of my firm beliefs on the Constitution and separation of federal and state. I am not a zealot though. I am a realist. We are a melting pot of beliefs, religions, races, and backgrounds. No one belief is going to pull us out of our deficit and make America a better place. There will always be conflict and strife. Too many people are jumping on the bandwagon, claiming to be a patriot. What most can’t seem to realize is even if we do have a regime change, there will still be a large percentage that are still unhappy. There will always be a large group of Americans that are against those in charge no matter what political party they are. It is natural for those not in control to want to rebel against those that are in control.

It is believed that during the American Revolution the active fighting forces against the King’s Army were only 3%. People now are trying to identify with this calling themselves the III %’s. The III%’s have a concept of starting their own community called “The Citadel Project”. They believe they can live in a fortified community in preparation for when “shit hits the fan”. They state “The Citadel will provide a place to live “a free/freer life in Idaho (or elsewhere in the American Redoubt) amongst the current strong, self-reliant and Liberty-loving residents of the region.” ( By doing this they are alienating themselves from the rest of America. What if a family can not afford to move to this community? Then they don’t deserve to live there? Where is the equality in that?

Separating yourself from the problem will not fix it. Starting a community like this will only make them look not only like a bunch of conspiracy freaks, but as enemies of the government. Because of the growing popularity of this movement they are bound to have people join them with less than honorable motives. Criminals will use this as an escape from prosecution, claiming they are being persecuted for being a Patriot. The founders of this town are starting the funding using money made from their firearms company.A great way to get your company’s name out there and make more profit is to align yourself with a political cause. Could this just be a way for these so-called “Patriots” to make a buck?

While I understand the intentions of this movement, I do not feel it will end up being for the good of the people. But these are just my opinions. As an American I am entitled to them. If you feel different, feel free to exercise your 1st amendment rights and let me know. If you try to infringe on mine remember I am a huge supporter of the Second Amendment


2nd Amendment

don_t_tread_on_me_hebaI try to stay away from politics in life because it just causes conflict since I am active duty military. I never know who will end up reading my posts and misconstruing my words. I am an American. I have no political ties or belong to any political party.I took an oath to protect the rights of the people.

The recent mass shootings have given politicians the chance to stand upon their soapbox and attack the constitution. They hide behind the sullen faces of the victims in order to push their anti gun agenda. They blame guns and blow off the fact that these individuals doing the killings are mentally unstable. How can a few nuts be a cause to try and rewrite the laws that have been working for many years.

Why should I have to register my weapons? Who’s business is it if I have a AR-15. It is not an assault rifle. The AR stands for ArmaLite, the original maker of the rifle REF: Gun grabbers want the clueless masses to believe it stands for “assault rifle”. It is a rifle plain and simple. I have mine for target practice and for home security. Why would I want a rifle for security? For the simple fact that I am trained with this rifle. I have put thousands of rounds down range to make sure I hit what I am aiming at. Why use a pistol I am less trained in and possibly miss?

Now ask yourself, do you really think tougher laws will prevent anything? The war on drugs did nothing but force people to get creative and come up with cheaper alternatives. Crack and meth were not popular till the war on drugs. A criminal does not buy a gun legally, so how would making it harder to purchase one legally have any bearing on a motivated criminal.

If we start to let the politicians change our constitution, they will never stop. Do not let them take away your rights. If you haven’t seen what happens when the citizens are left unarmed in other countries then you must be oblivious to the world. Every horrible genocide by a political party has always started by disarming the citizens. Do not be a sheep!


Boston Marathon

My prayers go out to the victims and all affected by this tragedy. I hope law enforcement can find whoever did this. Unfortunately many of those in attendance will suffer PTSD after this incident. I hope the health care workers can provide proper therapy for those who need it.

Of course the different media networks and politicians are spinning it to help their agendas. It saddens me that a tragedy like this will be used for politicians to push this or push that.
