Since we started our discussion here about “Militia groups” a lot of readers have sent emails asking for my personal opinion on the subject, so instead of answering each and everyone of those one-hundred or so emails, I’m going to answer that question here today…
It’s my opinion that when it comes to defending the U.S. Constitution from being eroded by the federal government that the “Militia groups” like that we have been talking about here, are pretty much useless. But if done right they can have a positive effect on on their community and do some good.
Groups should be geared more toward helping their community, at a county level and members should all preferably, live in the county, for example instead of the what ever state Militia, it should be lets say; the “Fentress TN County Militia” and they should work to help within their county, where they can actually make a difference.
For instance, they could go out and check on the elderly and see if they need any help, maybe even pitch in and mow their yard or repair a leaky roof, they could haul in food, generators and other needed items to people that are in need after an emergency, they could help clear roadways after a tornado or hurricane. They could act as a community watch. Or even pick up and clean up trash from illegal dump sites and from the roadsides.
They should do anything and everything to help within their county and community – and yes the county “Militia” could help defend the county and its resources, from thieves and refuges if needed after a disaster. For example: the Arizona Militia that was on the recent video that I posted are helping their county and local area by patrolling the border.
Have a purpose, and preferably stay at the county level and actually do something good, instead of just showing off your cammies and face paint while shouting don’t thread on me.
You’ll do more good and get more results defending the Constitution by joining the NRA, the Tea Party or other political groups and being active in those. Or better yet form or join a county “Militia” and get to work helping your neighbors, plus join the the NRA, the Tea Party or both.
And that’s my opinion, but yours might be different and that’s great – I fully support your right to believe how and what you want…
Okay, now let’s see what did I do to prep this week?
