    What is a "Three Percenter"?

    During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.
    Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders' Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

    The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any futher circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders' Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against Enemies Foreign and Domestic.

    We are the people that the collectivists who now control the government should leave alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption. We are the Three Percent. Attempt to further oppress us at your peril. To put it bluntly, leave us the hell alone. Or, if you feel froggy, go ahead AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

    Good post T. I also liked this from the link;

    This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can't be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won't be done. The Founders' Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.

    But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

    And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

    This is another group that makes up a large portion of the 3%. I am very serious about the oaths i have taken for most of my life, and have tried to explain it to others who "are damn mad and ain't gonna take it no more". Some of them lean more towards the "outlaw" side of things, and in my mind need to be reined in a bit. These people are far more eloguent than i am!

    There is at this time a debate within the ranks of the military regarding their oath. Some mistakenly believe they must follow any order the President issues. But many others do understand that their loyalty is to the Constitution and to the people, and understand what that means.

    The mission of Oath Keepers is to vastly increase their numbers.
    We are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our own troops.
    Help us win it.

    You swear to support and defend the Constitution. You do not swear to support an illegal President who is attempting to transform this county to Communism.

    I think maybe you misunderstand me. I fully understand the oaths i have taken. i also understand the difference between lawful and unlawful orders. My conscience is clear in regard to oaths taken, and any future action i may choose to take. the "outlaw types" that i stated i felt needed to be reined in a bit.... well lets just say i get the impression they have no military background, and that they would be hard to lead, follow, or to trust to have your back. in other words .... most likely more of a liability instead of an asset.

    What I feel for this land cannot be said with a vote or a prayer because as long as the truth is not known it wont make a difference.

    In order to know why we are where we are you have to know as to who put us here, it is bigger than you or I will ever know and is a plan that has been in place for the last 100 years.
