The Ruckus: Part II
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
October 29, 2010

In The Ruckus yesterday we suggested an optimistic scenario for Patriots to consider as a means of peacefully insisting that our Political Class return to a more faithful implementation of our Founding Principles.

Essentially, we contend that if Patriots respond to "it" by spontaneously holding RTC rallies (Right to Carry, not to be confused with Restore The Constitution) at every police station, City Hall, State House and the National Mall in the immediate hours following the beginning of it, the overwhelming show of Patriotic force would render the 800,000 badges and guns in America impotent, and would present the Political Class with a set of circumstances that simply can not be ignored or swept aside.

In classic fashion, we identified the Doctrine, the Strategy and the Tactics.

Doctrine:  Respect for Constitutional boundaries in our political system.

Strategy:  To stand down the members of our current Political Class and their tools of force that are imposing unconstitutional burdens on our Liberty and ruining the nation through the implementation of unconstitutional policies.

Tactics:  Patriotic Americans collect at every police station, City Hall, State House and the National Mall to peacefully meet stated goals. 

America has all the ingredients to bake a fresh Constitution Pie, just add Patriots and bake.

A few challenges exist to the successful implementation of such a plan.  Some are within the control of Patriots, others are not.

Perhaps the most likely cause of failure would be a lack of consensus regarding the plan.  If people don't know about the plan, and if people don't agree to it, it's a non-starter.

High on the list of challenges is the simple reality that many of those who consider themselves Patriots are simply too comfortable in their chains to get off the sofa and meet at the courthouse.  They talk a good game on blogs and such, but inertia is a killer of Liberty.

We think there are sufficient numbers of Patriots to make the plan work, once it becomes obvious.  There are many Patriots who have the resolve, tools, and intent to take a stand, but they are simply not willing to senselessly risk home and hearth until the Risk/Reward equation makes it prudent or necessary.

I understand Vanderboegh's calls for stickers and sign defacements...but is that how a Patriot wants to get on the radar?  Patriots who get caught doing such a thing are very likely to face the full weight of FedGov Lawfare, even if they choose to permit execution from the local/state level.

Count on it.

Most Patriots prefer to keep their heads down until the balloon goes up.  You won't see most Patriots in the woods practicing small unit tactics and listed on the roster of any militia.  Nor will you see them at RTC rallies.  The vast majority probably do not even know what III means - they are living their lives in the mainstream.

But, when it happens, they'll look around and see that other Patriots are geared-up & heading out...and many will catch up.

So, it is within the control of Patriots to talk about the plan and come to some consensus about the plan.

A few things beyond the control of Patriots include the response of LEO and the Political Class.  Yes, the most dangerous moments will be the early moments before there is a general understanding of what is happening.

LEO's first response to Patriots is predictable. The first Patriots on scene will face the most peril, obviously.  When the numerical advantage tips to the Patriots, common sense will have a chance to command the scenario.  Designating the parking lot of the local cop shop as your muster point is not the most prudent option.

Three Patriots in the parking lot of a police station is a problem for Patriots.  Thirty Patriots in every police parking lot...not so much.  Especially if Patriots are simultaneously congregating at City Hall and the State House. 

It is within the control of Patriots, at the local level, to work out the logistics to ensure the former is not the case, and the latter prevails. 

There simply are not enough LEO to be everywhere, in numerical advantage.

Patriots can not control the LEO response, but are certainly able to influence the response.  Numbers are the most efficient and humane solution to the risk, followed by demeanor and posture.

Most RTC events permit a sidearm in ready condition, and require unloaded, chamber-flagged long arms across the back.  Most RTC events will ask you to leave if you are a blood-thirsty idiot looking for a fight.  Most RTC participants will police their own, and work very hard to convey the proper posture to the general public.

Response from the Political Class is beyond the control of Patriots.  They will bring US Military into the mix the moment they understand what is happening.  If the nationwide Patriot Community erupts with spontaneous RTC rallies at every police station, City Hall, State House & the National Mall, there will be a small window of opportunity...likely not more than 72 hours.

Of course, Patriots choosing to meet on the National Mall have the most significant potential hurdles.  Just look at a map.  The Washington Navy Yard.  Fort McNair.  Bolling.  Andrews.  Quantico.  Meade.  DC can become a fortress in very short order.

Likewise, Civilian response is beyond the control of Patriots, though not beyond influence.  Remember that there is no such thing as a brilliant prolonged military endeavor.  The longer Patriots must linger in a location, the more likely agitators from the Stupidus Liberalis segment of society will arrive and escalate emotions.

Remember that any such spontaneous event will immediately go live on every MSM channel.  The eyes of the world will be on the Second Amendment crowd.  There are Leftist stereotypes out there about 2A folks (Really, there are!)  Patriots must take every precaution to avoid legitimizing those stereotypes and also fueling self-fulfilling prophecies about conflict.

Every Patriot must subscribe to the No Fort Sumter's philosophy.  It is not only morally proper, it is tactically and strategically proper. 

Schoolyard rules are in effect.  Don't start it...but there ain't no point in taking an unnecessary butt-kickin'...

The millions of people who take a Government handout every month will not appreciate these RTC rallies.  This includes not only the typical unproductive folks, but also the bureaucracy (Fed, State & local), LEO, and a significant segment of the business world that earn their income by working for/with the Political Class.  This includes Lobbyists and professional Hit Groups such as Unions, ACORN and such.

They will all come at Patriots hard.  They will insist that Law and Order prevail, and that something be done!  Of course, if Law & Order were in effect, we would not be talking about this topic at all.  But that won't stop them from demanding action against Patriots.  We know that there will be Leftist agitators who will seek to provoke violence, so that violence in response is justified.  They will insist that LEO and the military restore order...quickly, so they don't miss a check.

This is why it is so critical that any rallies by Patriots be swift, overwhelming, and finished with equal speed.

Achieve the goals, set the stage for Day One of the Restoration, and go home.

We know this suggestion is not perfect.  It requires many things to go right if there is to be any measure of success without running off the rails and devolving into something ugly.  We know that it will be easy for critics to snipe and dismiss the suggestion in its entirety.

But, if ugliness is a certainty without a major course correction, isn't it incumbent on every American to search for a less-than-ugly solution?


III Percent Patriots



Excerpt: There 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?!

Are 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.

Excerpt: 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 tell! 

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 sense.

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. 

Every narrowing, 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.

III Percent Patriots

Get your head on straight, Patriot!Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration.  Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

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 the republic.

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?


This book may not be for you.

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 are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

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.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
