The III Community can
never succeed without the active support of
at least 10% of the liberty-respecting American
population. Twenty percent would be better.
Depending upon the
poll one considers, those Americans who
self-identify as Tea Party folks ranges from 18% up
to nearly 30%. There is a mood in the republic
for a return to more of our traditional, Founding
The III Community is
the most strident sub-group on the Right in
demanding faithful respect for Constitutional
values. Many in the III Community have
surrendered hope that the republic can or will be
set to Her proper course before a major event sparks
violence. Whether an economic collapse brought
about by our irresponsible Political Class, or a
heavy-handed move by Collectivists in Government, a
significant Terrorist or False Flag attack, or even
a major natural event that is manipulated for
Collective political gains, many in the III
Community believe that serious change in America
will only come when accompanied by violence.
Violence is never
morally justified but for cases of self defense.
The parameters of justifiable self defense are for
While many in the III
Community advocate pre-emptive violence, the
majority does not. Most are simply resigned to
the conclusion that violence will come, sooner or
As the nation debates
Her course, it is of vital importance that the III
Community remain politically competent and not
behave in a manner that permits the forces of the
Left to marginalize the community.
While most who call
themselves III Percenters have resigned themselves
to eventual violence, the vast majority of people
who make up the Right in America do not share this
acceptance of violence...yet.
The political reality
is that the III Community must pay heed to the
Hearts & Minds of those fellow Americans who are
sympathetic to the goals of the Right.
Gratuitous violence will immediately earn scorn of
moderate Right Americans, even those who call
themselves Conservatives in the Tea Party.
Indeed, any violence that is clearly beyond the
scope of self-defense will be condemned by the vast
majority of the public.
Mike at Sipsey Street constantly preaches, No
Fort Sumter's, for this very reason.
The other guy must
draw First Blood. Violate this premise and the
III Community will immediately cede the moral high
ground and be relegated to the category of
Extremists, shunned and dismissed from the discourse
of the republic.
The next landmine
that must be studiously avoided by the
III Community is within our rhetoric.
Rhetoric is the art of using language to
communicate effectively and persuasively. To
be taken seriously on the national stage one must
use words prudently. While using strong
language is acceptable, the old axiom that you must
Say what you mean & Mean what you say, is
The moment one draws
a line in the sand and offers a penalty for crossing
it, and that line is crossed, you must make
good on the ultimatum. If not, you have been
punk'd. You have demonstrated that you are not
a serious participant. Excuses may be offered,
but the fact remains; You have failed to live up to
your own words.
So, rather than draw
lines in the sand with ominous retribution offered
to any who challenge you...don't draw the line.
Shut up. You not only ruin your credibility,
but you diminish the entire III Community.
When your entire
political platform is premised upon violent
counter-action in the face of tyranny and you
suddenly find yourself personally confronted with
that tyranny, and you bend knee...
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
Excerpt: The Bill
of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that
are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately
ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the
relationship between Man and Creator.
restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in
Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are
unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.
Mike at Sipsey Street came up with the
outstanding idea to place the above stickers out
in the world. As a shot across the bow to
the Political Class, I can't think of a better
method of warning those who would be our Masters
that peril lies upon their chosen path.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic,

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem
confronting America today. The underlying cancer
eating the American Soul is Liberalism. But for your
Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be
elected to office.
It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at
the polls. Liberalism must be defeated in our society
and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill
Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every
Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the
nation and our Constitution. Why should any business
owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for
politicians who further ruin the company?!
The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied
entry into your social circle. These stupid people are
responsible for the insanity that affects everything from
your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your
children. Why would you break bread with them, when
they are the reason your bread costs too much? Why
would any parent permit them access to their children, when
they are responsible for ruining your child's future?

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive,
go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This
book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic
Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and
government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels
who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons
Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act,
the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal
programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the
United States of America.
Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and
special interest groups that support Liberal politicians
and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming
legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the
United States of America.
Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who
support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature
of the politician is known to the public—or programs are
equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid
and support to a Traitor.

Number 5 is wholly a
