Three Percenters

Anybody that's hit my blogroll knows I carry a few blogs that might be construed as Survivalist or anti-government. Given the current state of affairs of our Nation and the attitudes of our nanny government as well as the rising threat from the mid-east, I appreciate the effort these folks have put into educating my Okie ass.
In my mind, our biggest threat to our way of life comes from our own government, both democrats and republicans. I've always maintained that a democrat is probably the more honest of the two parties - at least they let you know up front what they're about. Republicans on the other hand have showed time and time again that they make great promises, but end up lying their asses off to keep their cushy jobs in government. Of course, there are exceptions to this. I'll admit right now that Gary Condit was one of my favorite politicians - he was a conservative democrat from my hometown, rose from mayor of Ceres to Congress, I've met him and know his family from way back. As a matter of fact, his daddy preached my Granddad's funeral a few months back. On the other hand, the Congressman that represents our district now is a republican (can you say RINO?) and I wouldn't cross the street to spit on his sorry ass.
But I'm wandering......

Okay, back to the government. I live in Kalifornia. When I checked a couple of years ago, my state had 54 pages in PDF form of gun laws. By contrast, Montana had TWO. Granted, those are State laws, but it's no secret that more federal gun laws are in the works to disarm us. The Obamessiah is trying to pack the Supreme Court with liberal judges and I truly believe it's just a matter of time until our 2nd Amendment will be falsely interpreted and large scale gun confiscation will begin - a general disarming of the American People.
When the 2nd Amendment falls, the 1st will follow, then you'll have the domino effect. Our 2nd protects the rest of the Bill of Rights.
When that happens, there will be a revolution, a revolt. It won't be a mass uprising because most of our citizens are sheeple. Sheep. Meek and mild. Following the shepherd of the government.
But there are the 3 percent.
Below is an explanation of the meaning is of the Three Percenters that I stole (borrowed) from a site that I visit often, Sipsey Street Irregulars
I wanted to give my explanation of the Three Percenters, but this blog does it better than I ever could.
My question to you now, knowing that most of my readers (with the exception of the muslims that use it to beat off to my Camel Toe posts) are gun owners and conservative, is this: Are you, in your heart and soul, a Three Percenter, one of the 10% of the supporters or just one of the flock?
You don't have to answer in a comment (if I wasn't on a watch list before, I am now - no sense in you joining me) but ask yourself and be brutally honest.
Keep in mind I am not in any way advocating an overthrow of our government - just saying we can only be pushed so far

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 further 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 us 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.

Been a reader of the Dutchman for a long time.
Hard working, genius, excellent writer.
He needs all of the support we can give him.
Between the three percent and Oathkeepers I have hope.

I'm not sure anybody can really say they're a 3per until SHTF and they put up or shut up. Personally, I hope I have the balls to stand up when necessary. I think I do. Wirecutter, welcome to the dark side! Also, if you're not on a list, you're not doing your job.

If any of your readers don't know about the III%'s, Sipsey Street boys, etc,etc, then they are clueless in seattle and reality for them is a fleeting dream...
For US and those like US,

It's coming.

I am a part of that 3% too I suppose...

I have guns, a love of America as it was years ago and I have a BAD fucking attitude concerning all these asshats that think Obama is cool and Socialism rocks...

If it's WAR they want, then by God, WAR it shall be!

Great piece of work my Brother! Absolutely great!

All I know is that I've already had one circumscription and I ain't doing it again!
