It has been just under a month since a number of us met at King's Mountain on behalf of the III Congress. We decided we'd move forward with the Congress, to try and grow our ranks and serve as a networking vehicle to draw together various facets of the III and Liberty Movement. When we left I told everyone I would put together an email list of Delegates and circulate a draft of our first Resolution so we could work on it as a group and get the language where we want it. I've been a bit delayed because I have been fleshing out other aspects of III projects, including the III 300 and training functions, trying to figure out how they can all complement one-another. I've got those new elements to a point that we can begin talking, so our first order of business is to get the III Congress solidified.
The III is not how Kerodin defines it - it is how we all define it. That is the purpose of the III Congress, to unify our voices, articulate goals and strategy, and become a political force. So now is the time that I ask anyone who wants to be part of that voice to go to the III Congress site, sign up as a Delegate, and help us chart our course. The Congress is a dues-based organization, part of the 527. Every Delegate contributes a small $10 monthly fee to help finance basics. Remember that one of the biggest challenges facing the Colonials who fought in the war was lack of funds. Let's not make that same mistake.
I have ordered III Congress patches (velcro backing) and expect them in the next week or so. I'll ship them out when they arrive. (They look like the image above and measure 1x4)
At the moment we have Delegates from almost half the States, and some States have more than one Delegate - forming proper Delegations just as the Colonies did in our Founding Era. Our goal is to grow our ranks and have full Delegations from every State, hundreds of III Patriots who each help create our unified voice and set our path forward.
One of the most important lessons from the Battle of King's Mountain is that the Colonials who showed up were individuals (as we III Patriots pride ourselves) who acted in unison to achieve a common goal - to kill the Tories on the mountain.
They achieved their goal, then went home.
It is our turn.
We need as many III Patriots as possible to become Delegates, to help us unify and set course, network and build. Here's the link.
In the meantime, over this weekend, I'll get that mailing list together, our resolution draft out to Delegates, and any Delegate who wants the ability to post at the III Congress site need only let me know so I can have you added as an admin.
