MVT: Quality & Substance Matters
Max has a post I commend to each of you, here.
It sparked a discussion with a strong ally & friend of mine about the difficulty the Liberty Movement is having in finding significant numbers of serious Patriots who are willing to invest the time and effort and resources into real training. I have met many of you face-to-face over the last few years. I know how deeply committed many of you are about being ready to either step off the porch or be in a position to defend yourselves, or serve in an auxiliary role of significance.
I also know how many folks take a single day of training and consider themselves Subject Matter Experts, or even competent, with no real need to repeat a class or train the material with others, or work in a logical progression to build on those skills. This is badness.
I ran a poll a while back asking how many people would meet you on an X if you called. I'm adding a new poll on the right, tightening the question. Please take a sec and hit it for us.
How many serious, capable, trained, fit Patriots would muster with you on the X in 60 minutes if you called? In full Battle Rattle, willing to die before going home to secure Liberty. Do NOT include your buddy who means well, but is NOT working on diet, PT and skills improvement. I mean men (or women) who you KNOW will have your back and prove it by training with you now, when it is easy.
Having a Slick & Tricked (TM) AR is useless if it ends up being a French model - never fired and only dropped once. Having a dozen men on your Militia roll call is meaningless if they play "Militia", the grown-up version of Cowboys & Indians.
