  1. I've thought about putting on "civics" lectures, free to the public; wherein the main topic would be the Constitution "what is the United States exactly". Run through the structure of government, the "levels" of government (federal, state, county, municipal) and their relationships to each other. Emphasize the Bill of Rights that guarantee our right to privacy, due process of law, and the right to bear arms in defense of ourselves and our country. Stress the importance of the responsibilities of citizenship: voting, serving on a jury, serving in the military and membership in a Militia. Also, that our form of government requires participation: the more there is, the better it works. That's where the Militia really shines. Then get into the mission of your militia unit and it's (hopefully) relationship with local/county government. Stress that we serve the people, and our communities while safeguarding our rights contained in the Constitution. I haven't gotten that far into it, but roughly 30 minutes would seem about right, with question/answer period to follow. Just my thoughts.
  2. Well, you know...back in the day. See, the Army gets to call in mortars, airstrikes etc. on the bad guys; and there's always a "rescue party" on the way. Militia doesn't have any of that, so the best thing to do is avoid the fight unless you can be the guys laying the ambush and then run like hell out the back door. A whole different mindset. You're a good sport.
  3. Going to war isn't some kind of game. Like I said in my first post: 4-6-8 people (keeps growing, but still not even a full squad) should not be doing offensive operations. If 99% of groups are that small they should re-think their tactics and not try to be like the US Army, that your video is based on. The basic theory is to overwhelm your opponent. You don't necessarily need to have the numbers, but you'd better damn well have the firepower (6-8 semi-auto rifles won't do it).
  4. For simplicity and brevity: 1. If your strength is 4-6 men, you got no business doing offensive ops. 2. If you're the lead element in a larger force, take cover, stay put and return fire... let the following units do the flanking while you keep the enemy's head down. 3. You're going to take casualties.
  5. The original video is hilarious!! Fire teams are 4 men not 6 (you can run 3 man teams, but then it's using 2 teams, not one: different tactics). Any good ambush will have at least two sides of fire...and they'll be as mobile as you are. On the other hand, those are pretty neat toy soldiers. If you're working with government troops, they'll tell you what to do. Personally, I think militia would be well served by learning "unconventional warfare tactics" since they won't have the advantage of numbers or support, if they're working on their own.
  6. Here's a parallel thought: pistols. I'm not a big handgun guy myself, but I've heard lots of people say that your first weapon should be a pistol... then a long gun. Any thoughts/opinions? Obviously, in the Militia (as in the military) the primary weapon should be a capable long gun, but for those of us without a parent organization, what do you think?
  7. My opinion, for whatever it's worth, is to get hands on one as soon as possible. Based on what I see going on politically, the future looks increasingly rocky. Even the Boy Scouts have "Be Prepared" as their motto. Who gets elected President is only "surface topping". Our society as a whole is crumbling, due to several factors; not the least of which, is a breakdown in basic civility toward other people. Even today, people are targets for violence if they wear a red baseball cap with MAGA on... and his will only be aggravated by the results of the election no matter who is elected. If the Democrats win, they will see it as validation of their tactics, and if the Republicans win, the left will double down on the violence. Make no mistake: the one-world government types (swamp dwellers, socialists, anarchists and radicals of every stripe) will not stop until our Constitution is scrapped and the UN tells every country what to do and how to behave. Remember this: any weapon you have, is better than one you don't.
  8. The Electoral College was developed and put in place for only one reason: To prevent the "majority" in a Democracy from imposing it's will (simply through weight of numbers) on the total population. If we didn't have the EC, as mentioned above, the 6 or 7 largest US cities would ALWAYS DICTATE what the rest of the country would have to live with. Here's an example, that's not too far fetched. A New Green Deal idea says that pesticides are killing us... all the big cities, with their progressive ideas agree. The MAJORITY popular vote passes a Constitutional Amendment (referendum) saying no pesticides can be used in producing our food stuffs. Insects proliferate and crop yields drop...so the majority votes to put a steep tax on the producers, so the government can subsidize the higher priced crops. Nothing can stop the lunacy of the MAJORITY. Enter the Electoral College. The (sparsely populated) agricultural producers across the country "control" 292 of the 435 Congressional Districts, so when the pesticide ban comes to a referendum vote, it doesn't pass. The less populated agricultural areas in this case, were able to stand against the MAJORITY popular vote, because the votes are divided by Congressional Districts. The Founding Fathers were pretty sharp cookies... much more so than the air heads and biased political hacks that are operating the government today!
  9. Iodine...yuck!! Worst tasting stuff I can think of. Be careful too, it's very poisonous. If it were me, I'd carry chlorine bleach (unscented) instead of iodine.
  10. Vapor Barriers work, not doubt about it... but be careful: barriers don't "breathe". For example, if you put on a garment, then a plastic bag, then your outer garment, moisture (sweat) will accumulate inside the barrier. That can lead to hypothermia, as everything UNDER the barrier will be soaked. When you are not active (generating heat) your body temperature will cool down even more rapidly due to the excess moisture/evaporation.
  11. There is a "long game" at play here. As RevRifleman says, the media, banksters, schools, elected officials etc. are all playing their part, and as time goes on, real Americans will find themselves in a smaller and smaller minority. At some point it will collapse. Maybe "transform" would be a better word; into the socialist utopia they're all working toward, even now. As it stands now, "we" won't stand a chance, we will have been outplayed. Many on this board believe we should already be mobilized and taking action. Outnumbered, and labeled as "right-wing crazies" nothing much will change, even with all the sacrifice. There has to be a change in the hearts and minds of the people. We need to remember who we are, the rights and freedoms we enjoy, and the kind of economic engine that made this great country possible. It falls on each of us, you and me, to begin reversing the process of decay that's infecting our country today. Sure, we will all need to stand up and be counted when the time comes, but the real fight is here and now. I agree with SpartanOps when he says there should be some pushback. So, let's start resisting: not with weapons now, but with our opinions, our core values, our voices. You can start here: 1. Get to know your county Sheriff. Is he a supporter of the Constitution or not? 2. Go to your school board meetings. What are they teaching our young people? What socialist crap is in the textbooks? 3. Go to your city council meetings. What ordnances/laws are they shoving down our throats? Read up a little on Agenda 21: sustainable development 4. Contact your City, County, State and Federal elected officials. Tell them what you want to see passed and what you don't. 5. Start a "concerned Citizens" group and discuss what's going on that needs to be looked at. You can begin at the VFW/DAV/Bowling Team/Coffee Club etc. Right now, today, you can call your US Senators and tell them to vote NO on the following bills: The switchboard number is: (202) 224-3121 HR-1263 Nat. Firearms Act of 2019 HR-8 Bipartisan Background Check Act of 2019 HR-1112 Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019 S-42 Background Check Expansion Act Don't just sit there and let this continue to happen. Do something about it.
  12. We are obligated to oppose them. Sorry, the logic there is a little tricky I guess.
  13. I've been asking the question of "when" will it be time to stand up. This video gives a history lesson with some real guidance in it. Even back then, the colonists sat still for quite a bit of "abuse" from the Crown. Today we have a Congress who is nibbling away at our Constitutional rights, bit by bit. As citizens of the United States of America, we are not obligated to comply with unconstitutional laws. Quite the contrary. Remember that technology and government are virtually the same entity: they spy on you, gather information about you and eavesdrop on your communications. If you need secure comms, maybe find a different method
  14. Here's my two cents worth. Mexico has it's problems, no doubt. Their "National Army" or whatever was corrupted and failed in it's mission to rid the country of drug cartels etc. There's no reason to think that the socialist President will have any better luck with this "new" National Guard. What really concerns me is the UNITED NATIONS backing that he will receive. The UN has a long standing position (their main mission) of "one world governance". What that means is they want the entire world, including the United States, to be controlled by them alone... and they aren't even elected by anybody. They want the USA destroyed as a nation: our Constitution thrown in the trash and our people subservient to a New World Order of potentates sitting at the UN. So, what we will see is a new military formation, supposedly cloaked in "humanitarian" missions, with the underlying (hidden) goal of destroying the sovereignty of these United States of America. It begins at the border, but once the illegals are in, the structure of the USA will begin to crumble under the façade of "human rights" instead of Constitutional guarantees of personal freedom. They will of course be assisted by the likes of Occazio-Cortez, Pelosi, Swalwell, and Nadler, whose socialist allegiance is with the one-world government and not to the United States, that they swore an oath to defend. Make no mistake, we are in for a rough ride, and we are going to need every man, woman and child that believes in the sovereignty of this nation and the Constitution, to do all they can to ensure that our ideals survive this onslaught.

That this mandates a certain responsibility and assurance of good faith, transparency, and due process. As a voluntary user of and contributor to My Militia, such responsibilities will never be betrayed or reneged upon to the detriment of yourself or our community. Common decency demands that we remain vigilant as a trusted force among our people, and for these reasons we will never stand alone and hereby decree that for as long as we stand, so will our site, and if we shall fall, the last of us will purge it from existence.
