The Bundy Ranch and Militia Leadership
I'm just an aging old gun bunny who happens to feel it is the duty of all able bodied citizens to be a part of the militia. Whatever the requirements for militia service are or were have changed so many times over the years they are basically not important today. What will be important are the circumstances when the militia is once again called on. When the time comes everyone will be expected to do what they can and whatever the mean age was 100 years ago will amount to jack squat today.
60 maybe the new 40 this time around since the abortion clinics have been running non-stop for fifty some-odd years.
The legal issues that have come before are also a non-entity. Who cares if one court or Congress determined who the Militia was answerable to in 1870 or 1908? Local circumstances at the time will set those parameters for us in 2015 or whenever this time around. As fiat cash dries up volunteers become the problem solvers once again, we have seen this many times throughout history. It's nothing new. Each person will decide where their loyalties lie when the time comes.
I also played the military game during the 80's and early 90's. I know the score and I saw the propaganda in action. When statistics become more important than ability the entire institution becomes suspect. When qualified individuals are passed over while those who are not qualified are recruited in some sort of social engineering attempt to prove a theory than nothing works at optimal and the leadership is questionable at best.
We have suffered through half a century of social engineering based on a theory that is flawed, therefore it stands to reason that those offered up to us as proven leaders today will be flawed as well.
I am not saying all this to discredit anyone or point fingers. I am only pointing out that we are seeing a process develop that will have to run it's course. There has been no vetting of leaders in decades that fit the morals, attitude or needs of local militias. The only way pure propaganda ideals are going to be purged from the movement is through trail and observation followed by the consent of those who will be lead.
If you have been following the after action reports and such or the squabbling between the various groups that participated at the Bundy ranch than you know what I am speaking of.
I feel this is important because it will eventually effect all of us. Whether you consider yourself an active militia member at present or not as things run their course you will be active eventually. One way or another. When that time comes pick your leaders with care and always keep in mind the establishment that caused all this were the one's doing the vetting.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
