FAQ – IIIPSFA – 24 June 2014
1) What is the IIIPSFA?
The III Percent Patriots Society for America is a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt educational organization established in 2014 to restore rightful liberty in America. “Rightful liberty” means, in Thomas Jefferson’s words:
[U]nobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
We like that idea, and we think a lot of other men, women, and children will like it, too.
2) OK – now really – who are you guys?
Oh – you want the real story? OK, but remember – this is code word stuff, subject to all of the provisions of the official Secret Squirrel oath and code of conduct:
The III Percent Patriots Society for America is a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt educational organization established in 2014 to restore rightful liberty in America.
Peaceable men and women, passionately committed to individual freedom and political liberty, educating and supporting other like-minded individuals.
Keep it under your hat, though. OPSEC, you know. The walls have ears. John has a long mustache. 🙂
3) Are you a militia?
Short answer: No.
Longer answer: No, but we in the Society are supportive of militias, other consensual freedom-minded groups, and individuals who believe in fundamental human rights and are willing to work to re-establish those freedoms in America
4) What is the mission of your organization?
We’ll spare you a repeat of the Secret Squirrel routine, but really – we say what we mean, and we mean what we say. The III Percent Patriots Society for America was established to work for and achieve the restoration of rightful liberty in America. Nothing more – and nothing less.
5) What does that really mean?
First off, it means we have a heck of a lot of work to do.
Go read Harvey Silverglate’s Three Felonies A Day website at http://www.threefeloniesaday.com/Youtoo/tabid/86/Default.aspx . Better yet, go and read his book.
How many people in modern-day America know what Silverglate is saying, let alone understand it?
Now add in all of the Snowden disclosures of domestic data interception and intelligence analysis by Federal agencies.
Fast and Furious? Benghazi? IRS emails?
Still more work.
To re-establish rightful liberty in America, the Society has to
a) awaken people to the tyrannical threats faced by all Americans,
b) provide them with the information they will need to change that situation, and finally,
c) support them as they do just that.
In other words, a LOT of work.
6) How do you propose to do that?
You start with a core group of people who aren’t afraid of hard work and who understand the situation. Then you look for gaps and fill them. Wash, rinse, repeat. You’d be really surprised what happens once people realize that their consent is all that holds the entire Potemkin village together. Withdraw that consent, weather the ensuing storm, and build for the first time in living memory a society based on individual freedom and opportunity.
7) Won’t that mean anarchy and destruction of society?
Ask yourself these questions:
Did I not rob a single other human being today because of the police?
Or did I not do it because I am not a person who robs people?
America is in the position it is today because generation after generation has been taught that the police and other government agencies are the only thing holding back chaos. Such a belief is just not true. Individuals who refuse to be predators are the core of society, and frankly, government is simply not the answer to all (or even most) problems in life.
8) When did you begin your organization?
Although it has been in the works for some time, we launched the Society on June 15, 2014.
9) What have you done so far?
So far, we’ve
· established our presence on the web,
· opened the membership roles, and
· begun the process of outfitting one of our first projects, which is designed to respond to situations like the Bundy Ranch and make sure that the truth gets out, regardless of what the government and their media accomplices do or not do.
10) Can anyone join IIIPSFA?
Anyone who wants to help restore rightful liberty in America is free to do so, regardless of their race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or any other of the false divisions used by the global oligarchs to hold onto their power and keep the masses fighting among themselves.
11) How do you differ from the NRA?
Well, we certainly aren’t Washington insiders who have been part of every major Federal gun control measure since the National Firearms Act of 1934, if that’s what you mean. More importantly, while we are very pro-gun, we are at our cores individual freedom zealots, for we know what Ayn Rand meant when she said:
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.
12) How do you differ from the Oathkeepers?
As an organization, we aren’t a mildly-less-senile American Legion post holding a copsucker/copsuckee co-dependency square dance to raise money and sell swag. Our individual members don’t have a track record of turning and running away at the first hint of possible danger or controversy. We are a group of men and women who run towards the fight, not away.
13) How do you differ from smaller gun rights organizations?
We’re just as poor or poorer, so that’s one thing we have in common. We are broader in our interest areas than groups such as JPFO or GOA, but any individual, group, or business that supports the pursuit of rightful liberty is an ally and a potential friend.
14) There’s a lot of folks who claim to be for freedom and want my money – why should I join you guys?
There’s only one real question to answer:
Do you see the Society as a way that you can help the fight for rightful liberty in America?
If so, you should consider joining us in any way that you can do so. If not, that’s OK with us too.
15) Won’t I be endangering myself and my family by joining the Society?
You and your family are already in danger from the ravages of an out-of-control government that believes that you, your children, and all of your assets already belong to it. What remains to be seen is what you plan to do about it. Helping us restore rightful liberty is one constructive way to channel your outrage.
16) I’ve heard some bad things about some of the people in the Society – is it true?
On the internet, you never know what someone is going to say about you. The truth is that at least two of our members have criminal convictions. Both are productive, respectable members of society today – and that’s what counts for us. Do your own research, consider the sources of the information and their motives, and make up your own mind. Take nothing on faith.
17) What about violence?
As individuals, every single one of us has a God-given right of self-defense. Many in the modern world would infringe upon that natural right or ban it altogether. Such people are evil, and we stand in direct, open opposition to them. As an organization, the Society has the same policy as did the Minutemen at Lexington Green:
Don’t fire unless fired on.
That works for us, and we hope it works for you.
18) Can you tell us more about your future plans?
Not any specifics right now, but keep an eye on our blog at http://iiipercentsociety.blogspot.com. You’ll know the latest right there.
19) Do you expect trouble from government investigators?
You’re not suggesting that government agencies such as the IRS might harass individuals and groups based on their political beliefs, are you? That’s crazy talk right there… 🙂
20) What about kids – can they join?
At present, the Society does not have a junior membership program planned. But kids are always welcome at any of our events, subject of course to the good judgment of their moms and dads.
