A.r.m.

Recommended Posts

This is the American Resistance Movement. They are a forum much like this, just more focused on the constitution and our God given liberties. In a sense, a militia of sorts, or a site for the establishment of militia. What do you all think of the idea of an armed militia, or many?

Pretty sure if there were never any militia's we would all be speaking British. Unfortunately, however, over the years quite a few of them out there with agenda's have given much of the militia movement a bad name.

 

Overall I support them, just not the ones with idiots in them.

The government really could handle the whole militia thing a little better. There's enough people out there who want to be a part of the solution that if you used this valuable manpower resource on task like disaster relief and old school civil defense stuff you could get a lot more cooperation out of them. Local government and militias just need to get better at talking to each other over things that are not legal troubles for there members.

Quite a few militias in Texas and Arizona have pretty much taken things into their own hands since the government doesn't seem to be asking them for help, and are just patrolling the borders on their own and just working with local authorities if they do come across illegal's.

The US constitution establishes the militia and gives Congress the duty to regulate it. Interestingly enough, if it weren't for the so called "militia movements" the progressives would have to create them (who knows, maybe they did?). I assume you are referring to groups that organize along military or para-military lines for the purpose of training for battle.

 

While I may or may not be sympathetic to the movements, I think it is a serious error to join such a group. No militia can face up to a modern organized military force. By joining such a group, you put yourself right in the center of the 10 ring for every intelligence community in the country. Not exactly a gray man lifestyle. It further serves as a 'straw man' enemy to provide a reason for martial law.

 

My recommendation for preppers is that if you are serious about surviving a SHTF event then stay away from organizations whose purpose (avowed or implied) is hostilities with the United States.

I agree that today most militas have a bad name but I feel that they warrant it due to their actions and mentality because it seems like most are para military types. CIA FBI.....scape goat .....red flag. It would seem like a better idea to me that if he these type of people want to really help than the group should be based more on emergency prepardness. Helping out during storms, keeping supplies to help those in need. Stock up on food and water/the basics...not guns and ammo.

The Texas State Militia sent quite of a few of their members to Joplin Missouri after the devastation tornadoes they had their. And I believe one of Michigans, or maybe it was Wisconsin, militia also did the same. Theirs lot of militia's out there that actually do some good and actually work with authorities, but as usual, people focus on the bad seeds instead.

A good idea is to join your local C.E.R.T. ( community emergency response team). I know of some good militia organizations that do community work and volunteer where needed. The cloud does hang over most tho.

Please be careful how dangerously you flirt with the line of advocating or entertaining violence towards the U.S. Government in any form regardless of what your reason(s) are.

 

On this forum it will get you banned. This is not the forum for polarizing folks to violent action towards the government or violence that you would hypothetically carry out due to outrages you have against any public or any defined private group(s) or individual(s).

 

In the U.S. at large it will get you jail time or worse depending on your actions at the time of your confrontation.

To the above two commentators: point taken. Perhaps you should google A.R.M. (American Resistance Movement), and consider whether the thread is appropriate for this site in the first place. I concluded that because the thread was still up, the topic of conversation was up for discussion. Again, point taken, I'll keep my comments to prepping, and I'll stay out of the Freedom and Liberty section since I'm obviously interested in discussing topics not appropriate for this forum. I'll proceed to delete my comments on other threads that are similar to my above comment.

The Texas State Militia is an official organization of the state of Texas and is tasked with emergency reponse, preparedness and the defence of the state of Texas it is not a privately organized militia and does not bear any resemblence to them a handfull of states do have state militias
