Promoting The Power Of The Sword
by Russell D. Longcore
Secessionist movements are found in many states. But with the exception of the groups in the state of Texas, most groups are not getting much traction with the populace. Organizations such as Freedom Texas, The Republic of Texas and The Texas Nationalist Movement have been very successful in promoting Texas statehood, and are well known for their effectiveness. But petition drives, printed flyers and radio spots may not be the best way to promote secession.
Today, I would like to offer an idea to help ALL the secessionist organizations promote state secession as well as to promote The Power of the Sword.
As I wrote in Secession and the Power of the Sword 2015, openly promoting militias during the death throes of the United States government in Washington DC could be considered domestic terrorism. But the states need to begin training militias NOW.
How might that be done in a low-key way?
What is the one common denominator of militias? At its most fundamental level, self defense relies upon firearms. At its most fundamental level, the militia relies upon every militia member being trained to be a rifleman. Look at what Switzerland has done with their militias. Citizens keep battle rifles at their homes, and are required to be qualified rifleman.
I recommend that each secessionist movement take upon itself the holy calling of training people in the use of firearms.
~ Sponsor pistol and rifle shooting events far and wide.
~ Become sponsors of shooting events that are being held by groups such as the National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
~ Work with every gun shop and sporting goods retailer in the state that sells firearms and supplies. ~ Make sure you are a sponsor…not just an exhibitor…at every gun show that happens in your state.
~ Sponsor firearm training classes at very indoor and outdoor shooting range in your state. Pay the fee for people that want to take the class but cannot afford the fee.
Then, at every event, talk about state secession.
People talk to their friends about their experiences, both enjoyable and not. Make the use of firearms enjoyable and people will talk. Now, they have both a good memory and a good new idea. You now have a new friend of firearms and possibly a new friend of the ideas of militia and secession.
And you have added all those names and addresses to your database.
Between now and the collapse of DC, the secessionist movements of America can make tremendous inroads with the people who will be most directly affected by that very collapse.
Don’t wait another day, Secessionists. Find a gun shop, a gun show, or shooting organization and get DEEPLY INVOLVED. Control your own destiny. Get moving.
