Help Wanted for New Project!! MyMilitia Only!

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow patriots of MyMilitia.com. I want to start a new project that will help all of us with education and recruitment in our respective communities. I want to start a small "paper" that will be published either once or twice a month. This one page paper can be posted on community bulletin boards, handed out to perspective members, or dropped off at businesses with waiting rooms that will allow our information to be distributed.


I will act as editor and contributor of this "paper". I am looking for more contributors that know how to communicate our message with normal members of the community without coming off as an extremist, separatist, or anti-government. We need to communicate effectively to those who may sympathize with our point-of-view, but may be uncomfortable with actually going to a militia meeting.


The point of this "paper" is to help educate people about how they are loosing their rights and freedoms. How our government has already spent our grandchildren's lifetime earnings. How our nation is bowing to foreign and corporate interests. But all articles must be written in such a way that it doesn't scare off people that would be new to this kind of information. I don't want this "paper" to look like extremist propaganda, but real information from men and women that care about this nation's future.


Contributes of this "paper" must be members of MyMilitia.com and all articles will be first submitted here for peer review and approval before being published to the paper. From article published here, I will edit and assemble them with a small MyMiltitia footer and a blank header at the top for each unit to add their own name and contact info. This will be uploaded here as a PDF. All each unit will need to do is download the PDF, put it in a program that will allow them to add in their own header, then print. Simple.


Right now I am calling this project "The Patriot Paper". This is really a good effort that I hope to get going by July. Let me know if you are interested in contributing, or if you have any good ideas to add to this.

I love this idea! How many pages are you aiming to put together monthly? Will there be room for folks like me to periodically send in articles?

I may occasionally have an article but I would not be a regular writer. I simply not that verbal of a person. Would you be "ABLE" to reprint cartoons which others have made public which I might find here & there?

Here is my 1st submission.



Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?


Their story…

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.


They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

Eleven were merchants.

Nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated.

But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.


Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.


Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.


Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton , Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.


At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.


Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.


John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.


So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!
