I’m going to take down the poll in the right column about a possible PatriotCon for 2012.
As mentioned before the response rate, given the number of visitors to this site every day, is anemic. Participation rates were much higher during the crafting of III to Liberty, and visitors were fewer. While 80% of you who voted would support a meeting of our Community, it would be a small gathering.
I know there are several small groups planning to get together, and that may be the best course for the winter, spring & summer. Personally, I would recommend you consider meeting a few of your more trusted allies if able, at gun shows, Tea Party events, and in the spring & summer, perhaps even hook up at an Occupy or other OpFor event.
The odds are high that Occupy will return stronger and more aggressive in the spring, ramping up consistently into summer and toward the elections. I think violence is a given. That’s what Communists do best. Each city will have its own personality, but the hands up the arses of the Useful Idiots will all be unified in their goals and their willingness to sacrifice as many pawns as necessary to achieve their goal of pushing America beyond the point of no return.
If you consider meeting with your fellow Patriots at public events, I would suggest you gear up (Go Bags, III cap or patch and as much 2A as is legal for the venue). But please leave the cammies and chest-thumping rhetoric off-site.
Warriors never need to bluster. Show up and let your statement be the gear, and the hardness in yours eyes behind your Oakley’s.
But be careful. I suspect the Enemies of Liberty want a Boston Massacre next season.
And they want all of us to go where such an event might lead.
Play your game on your timeline. Engage on your terms.
Next year will be as close to 1775 and 1861 as you and I will likely ever see.
That assumes the economy does not lock-up and force events onto an accelerated timeline.
Use this time wisely.
