How to Activate the Constitutional Militia in Your Area

Copyright ? 1994 Constitution Society. May be copied with attribution for noncommercial purposes.

Once you have received and read the materials that may have accompanied this document , and have decided that the constitutional militia needs to be activated in your area, there are several things for you to do:

[] Try to find like-minded persons in your area. Ask around. Try patriotic organizations, such as the VFW and the American Legion. Sound out people at gun shows and gun stores. Ask if there is already a militia activated in your area or if anyone is considering it. Put out notices for interested persons to contact you.

[] Form a Safety Committee. Having found a few like-minded persons, meet together, share materials, and agree to issue a militia call-up.

[] Pick a suitable date, time, and place for the first muster. It should commemorate some historical event. Ideally, it should be in a highly visible location, within the municipal limits of a major community, and on public property.

[] Try to have a notable speaker or stage an event that will appeal to the media. Be creative. Although the first muster will primarily be an organizing meeting, it is also a media event and should be staged that way.

[] Publicize the muster. Post public notices in the local newspaper of record, on the courthouse public notices bulletin board, and in the newsletters of sympathetic civic groups. Mail and fax press releases to the media, especially talk radio stations. Try to get on as a guest of major talk radio programs, and call in announcements of the muster during listener call-in periods. The notices should answer the questions: Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. Send along supporting documentation.

[] Compile patriot mailing lists. Enter them into a computer database if possible, or prepare mailing label masters for producing self-adhesive mailing labels for repeated use.

[] Prepare draft by-laws, regulations, and guidelines. Adapt them to your local situation. Make enough copies for the number of persons you expect to attend, and try to get the documents out to them in advance to save time trying to read them at the first meeting.

[] Mail announcements to as many people in your area as you can. The advertisements and radio broadcasts are important, but many people will also need something in their hands that they can read that will motivate them to attend. They need to come with some common understanding of what a militia is, how it can be organized, and what it might accomplish. You might include the draft by-laws and regulations in the mailing if you can afford the postage and copying costs.

[] Invite local officials and representatives of military and law enforcement organizations to attend. Try to involve them from the outset, to reassure them and win their support.

[] Prepare documents to be handed out at the muster. They should provide information and instruction on all the points that may be of interest and concern to the attendees. Make enough copies so that everyone can get one set, and make some extras for persons who could not attend.

[] Conduct the muster. The first order of business will be an introductory speech, followed by adoption of by-laws, regulations, and guidelines, then the election of the commander and other officers.

[] Give attendees an opportunity to speak. Let them voice their experiences, their feelings, their understanding of the situation, and their hopes. Build a resolve to recruit more participants, train them, and conduct more musters.

[] Elect a Safety Committee and a Correspondence Committee. Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of participants. Pass out materials. Collect contributions toward the expenses of the muster and to pay for notices of future meetings. Agree on the date and place for the next meetings of the committees and perhaps of the next muster. Adjourn the muster.

[] Followup publicity. Issue press releases to the media. Visit reporters and explain what you are doing, providing them with literature. Get on talk radio and television.

[] Assist in activating the militia in neighboring counties. Encourage attendees from neighboring counties to go back and activate the militia in their own counties. Send organizing teams on a tour of the state and nation to find and motivate local leaders to do the same. Establish correspondence committees linking local militia units at all levels.

[] Set up regular training sessions and camps. Initially, each of these may need to serve a multi- county region. Shooting ranges, especially those that can simulate combat. Tactical military training. Police training. Emergency and medical training. Survival training. Seminars on constitutional law, on jury powers and duties, on investigation of official and corporate corruption and abuse, and on reform measures.

[] Set up an alert system. Establish and exercise a telephone tree. If feasible, set up neighborhood sirens or other sonic alert signals. Establish alternative communications networks, such as amateur radio, line-of-sight comm links, visual signals, and couriers. Establish links to the broadcast media, and contingency systems in the event that the media are shut down.

[] Either publish a newsletter or use an existing one. Sometimes several counties can combine their efforts in a regional newsletter. Maintain a steady flow of information and guidance to supporters.

[] Get on the Internet. Share information and plans with others across the country and around the world. Pass on the information to people not on the Internet through newsletters and handouts.

[] Recruit officials and civic leaders. Make sure all of them are informed of what you are trying to do, and make sure you know where each of them stands. Insist on strict construction of U.S. and State constitutions according to the original intent of the Framers, and make sure they know what that means. Line up both the high officials and rank and file of law enforcement and military organizations. Identify supportive judges and lawyers. Work to defeat opponents and replace them with supporters.

[] Set up regular booths at public events. Gun shows, fairs, conventions, political rallies.

[] Operate a speakers' bureau. Get your best speakers to speak before civic and other groups at every opportunity.

[] Do some fun things. Parties, picnics, and other events for the entire family.

[] Enforce the law. Investigate official and corporate corruption. Infiltrate corrupted agencies. Recruit whistleblowers. Protect witnesses, investigators, and their evidence. Get grand juries to bring indictments. Expose wrongdoing. Concentrate on vote fraud, corrupt judges and law enforcement officers, and other offenses that would not ordinarily receive official attention or that are being covered up.

[] Secure entire areas against attack. Make it infeasible for criminals of any kind to attack people in certain defensible areas, which can serve as safe havens for larger areas. Establish defensive perimeters around persons or organizations that might be particularly subject to attack. And establish mobility and secure communications in the event area security cannot be maintained.

[] Roll back unconstitutional legislation. Work on legislators. Pursue cases in court. Get abusive officials out of office. Go after the special interests that are the ultimate source of corruption and reduce their power.

A thought:
  Rather than start a Militia, which might raise hackles, we could simply start a Mutual Aide Society. The MAS would be a central rallying point for Porcs and Freedom Folk in case of emergency, be it natural disaster or the collapse of society, or a severe recession, turning into a depression. I see the Society having a place in the country, where folks could move to in an emergency, maybe camp out, or build some huts. Stockpile essential supplies, self defense arms and ammunition, radios, basic tools for survival, and such. Perhaps buy a farm, rent it out to a member to live in. A working farm would be great for this. If enough people chip in, it shouldn't be tough to accomplish.
  Any thoughts?

I like it. The problem with a "militia" is that it's just like a Confederate flag. No matter how noble or honorable the intentions of the person waving it, it both raises hackles and shuts minds, and it attracts some very wrong sort of people.

"Militia" tends to focus on the militaristic aspects, while ignoring most everything else. When your only tool is a hammer (or rifle), every problem is a nail (or target).

I've got what is probably one of the larger gun collections among our participants here. If it ever comes time to use guns, one per participant is enough. And I don't want to be surrounded by rednecks in camouflage if that time comes -- they're obvious targets. An effective militia will be composed of long-haired computer repairmen, laughing landscapers, young mothers, old men, and teenage girls. They'll look like everyone else, instead of running around like a pseudo-military force.

I definitely agree with you. I foresee bad times ahead, and I would like to be with level-headed, friendly freedom folk.

I'll second that agreement.

That said, if somebody wants to start of a private, for-profit, army to compete with the government ones, I won't complain either.

I wrote this in a private message, but was asked to post it here:

I envision a mutual aid society as a club, a free association of volunteers, who commit to support one another during certain situations. I don't see any need for the MAS to own anything like land, or a farm. Such formality tends to get in the way of the "mutual" and "volunteer" part of such groups.

The White Mountain Land Club is prospecting for a large piece of land to be jointly owned and parcelled out as the member see fit. That's great, and I wish them the best, and I'd even join up if the timing were right.

I think of our theoretical Porc MAS as a homeschool group on a larger scale. Bring everyone together, and each contributes what he has to offer. One teaches art history, one teaches music appreciation, another teaches improvised explosives. One teaches algebra, one teaches chemistry, another teaches advanced hacking techniques.

If the fur flies, the rarest commodity will be trust. Building personal bonds -- and knowing who can be trusted -- is required before any of the more serious work can be undertaken.
