You have a problem. There is No Militia in your area?
Solution: Make one! It’s called Tun’s Tavern. Look it up.
Problem: You don’t have money, you can’t pay for college, you can’t give them medical and dental. The risks of personal injury, maiming, imprisonment, and death are great. You have nothing.
Solution: You have nothing to lose! The only way out is forward.
Dan Pink describes here what motivates people… Notice College Tuition, Medical Benifits, and money isn’t a sufficient motivator. Our Forefathers organized under the same perils. They didn’t get a ticker tape parade.They didn’t even get the benefits Vietnam Veterans got. They were abandoned…
“There are those who say: ‘I am a farmer’, or, ‘I am a student'; ‘I can discuss literature but not military arts.’ This is incorrect. There is no profound difference between the farmer and the soldier. You must have courage. You simply leave your farms and become soldiers. That you are farmers is of no difference, and if you have education, that is so much the better. When you take your arms in hand, you become soldiers; when you are organized, you become military units.
Guerrilla hostilities are the university of war, and after you have fought several times valiantly and aggressively, you may become a leader of troops and there will be many well-known regular soldiers who will not be your peers. Without question, the fountainhead of guerrilla warfare is in the masses of the people, who organize guerrilla units directly from themselves.”
You know who said that? Mao Tse-Tung.
I HATE to say this but the godless heathen red commie bastard has a point.
Mao was a tremendous leader. Have you ever heard of The Long March? This dude took 130,000 soldiers in an 8,000 mile retreat and only 4-5000 emerged. Those 4-5000 went on to form the Army that over threw the Chinese Government. We cannot be outdone by commies!
But what would cause people to march 8,000 miles facing the killer elements of the Himalayas, the Gobi Desert, and swamp lands? To face starvation and fatigue? To face an enemy determined to kill them with a vastly superior force?
I will let Major Sullivan Ballou answer that for me. His words say more on the subject than I could ever hope to capture.
