III Percenter

I've noticed that more and more folks are describing themselves as III Percenters without really having a grasp of what the meaning is so I'm going to run it down real quick.

A III Percenter is a Constitutionalist first and foremost.

A III Percenter is somebody that's had enough of the government's bullshit and have decided that they are not going to comply with unconstitutional laws no matter what the consequences are. Read those last 6 words again.

A III Percenter is somebody that will fight to the death against an overwhelming force for what they believe in. Fuck The World, baby. Come get some.
And that pretty much nails it.

We're not a formal organization, hell, we're not even a loosely connected organization. We're just a bunch of strongheaded folks that's tired of the shit and have said "enough".
There's no leader and there's a good reason for that - we'd self destruct. Most of us, by design, are individualists. If we weren't we'd be following the rest of the flock. Myself, I'm so goddamned Alpha that if I were a wild animal I'd kill my young to eliminate the competition.

You can be a Patriot and a Constitutionalist without being a III Percenter, but you can't be a III Percenter without being a Patriot and a Constitutionalist. Just can't happen.

Ken I just saw on the TV that the Citadel in Idaho had their weapons factory "approved". Thats good news. I'm reading more and more about it.

I couldn't agree more. That's why I don't claim to be one. I have a family with kids, I have to think about consequences.

But if the line is crossed....

Some people thinking it is some kind of club to join?

That whooshing sound you hear is the concept flying over their heads.

I certainly have never claimed such but I am very much in agreement with what I see and read.
I believe the fact that this country has strayed so far from it's founding documents and ideas is why it is so FUBAR right now.
If that makes me a Constitutionalist then that's fine with me.
Go ahead and put me on your domestic terrorist watch list, again.

America is long dead, shivved in the back by those who swore to protect her and left bleeding in a dark alley.

The struggle to preserve her memory and ideals has been joined and the future of this new amalgamation with the same name is being shaped daily.

Pick a side or get the fuck out of the way.

I used to be a three percenter, and I hope to be one again soon. Perhaps I should explain, I served my country faithfully in the SF community for 24 years. I retired in 2009. My heart goes out to those who serve during these dark times as I believe that they are conflicted as to whether to follow orders or faithfully uphold their oath to our country.

But as to why I am not currently a III percenter.
Myself and my wife feel called to adopt a child, but not just any child...A child that is currently inside of the states' child protection service because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. These children are not only suffering from the abuses from their own family members, but also from the state who supposedly is there to protect them.

If anyone has any doubts about what lies ahead for us all under the kindness and compassion of a government who is empowered to take care of us, should simply look at how they currently treat those who are in their care and are unable to defend themselves.

We are in the process of liberating a child from within this hell hole of bureaucratic care, while we navigate these treacherous waters we are consigned to play by the rules of CPS in all matters. I have come to swallow my pride and be willing to sacrifice my own liberty (temporarily) so that I might free one human being from the clutches of the state. I do see the light at the end of this long dark tunnel. When the legal proceedings are complete and he is truly a member of our family, then all of the restrictions, reporting requirements, and endless inspections will be done and we will once again claim our freedom and liberty our God bestowed upon us as citizens of a free country. Already CPS is dropping hints such as "after the adoption, we really should continue counseling and support services for the family, in the interest of the child of course." I nod my head and smile, and say "that sounds interesting".

Some may not agree with this sacrifice of our personal freedoms, and I do understand that conviction, this is not a course of action I would recommend for anyone, unless they are called for this service..I look forward to the day when my son is old enough to understand and we talk of what his family sacrificed so that he could breath free air and walk with his head held high.

I would thank my fellow patriots and simply ask for their prayers for those children who have been abused and are currently held within the state bureaucracy.

I do understand and I think it's very admirable. I wish you and your family the very best.

Anonymous @ 4:17 AM; You are showing true III spirit! When the time comes we will all be giving up liberty temporarily for the longer term goal of freedom and liberty for others.

God Bless!

I always hesitated to call myself III because I feel it's such a rare and wonderful Patriot. Would I step off the porch and go TO the fight? No, I can't abandon my girls (and trust me, there are days I understand why some animals eat their young). But will I stand and fight to defend my home and country when the fight comes to me? Oh hell yeah. Will I do whatever possible to support the III Percent? Absolutely.

I totally understand how people with children feel, your first duty is always to your children. Unless you are wirecutter who would eat them. My kids were my whole world, still are, but they are grown now and don't need me as much. So I guess it is left up to us old farts who have already raised our families. However, I am sure that many of our founders had small children as well and they sacrificed all. There are differnt levels of resistance and support. A cook or a clerk may not be on the front lines, but without them the Army goes hungry or does not get the supplies they need.
and to anoymous, I think what you are doing is very admirable as well, and I also wish you the best.
And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
Matthew 18:5

I am, and have been a Patriot and III Percenter for years. I've always said if I could crawl to battle and my fingers still worked I would defend the Constitution till death.
In my heart and with my God lives my organization. If in my battle I meet other Patriots, so be it. I wlll have your back.

Anon@4:17 - would you please re-send me your email? I deleted it out when I posted the comment.
Thanks again.

wirecutter said...

PapaMike - Agreed wholeheartedly.
I'm 53 years old and have lived several good lives in that time.

I will regret leaving my wife on her own but she was very aware of what she was getting into when she married me.
