A random search in any state inquiring about liberty groups, patriot groups or militias will fill the page. There are wide interests of these groups from strict Constitutionalism, to paramedic militias. The interest in liberty and a faithful adherence to the Constitution is somewhat remarkable given the lack of energy any of these organizations exert toward the actual goal.
It is as if we are all waiting for something, though I cannot fathom what. We have drones overhead, black boxes to be installed in cars, the police demanding the ability to listen in on cell phone conversations. We can be pulled over for suspicion of distracted driving and have our cell phones confiscated, but what we cannot do, without a long legal battle, is film the police. Hmmmm. They can surveil us until the cows come home, but we should not surveil them. Orwellian, or Marxism?
There was a play completed in 1949 by Samuel Beckett entitled "Waiting for Godot" which depicted the situation of two men, Vladimir and Estragon waiting endlessly for someone named Godot to show up. The longer it took for the person to show, the greater the event would be when he finally arrived.
We are nothing less in the Liberty/Patriot Movement. Idle, waiting for that one person, the one who will put impetus to our preparation, who will give us a cause, a reason to move forward with our plans.
We are stymied by our fear and by our distrust. Who is the provocateur? Who is the spy? How far can I go before everyone in my circle reveals themselves as a government agent?
While looking for a home organization in North Dakota, I found several groups that looked interesting. From liberty groups to militias, I found like-minded organizations. All had one basic theme: we are for liberty and a restoration of the Constitution, though we will do nothing overt to accomplish it. No, we would rather hope and wait. Maybe someday the GOP will recognize its true role in the political sphere and save us.
They won't. The Libertarians won't.
I see no way to save the union. The III Congress recently proposed quickly became irrelevant through disagreements and lack of participation. Again, myself and others were prepared to do the heavy-lifting to bring others along the obvious path only to be met with skepticism and objectionism.
I have seen the end of liberty and it is today. We have already allowed too many incursions into our privacy. The Constitution cannot be saved by the timid. Our rights and liberties were on loan from our forefathers and without our willingness to safeguard them, they have drifted away like sheep in the night; while we waited.
I have written about this way too long. Words cannot produce the desired action. In all, it appears that when the time came to stand up to thuggery and corruption, it just felt better to stay home and wait. I have expressed my desire to join those who are going to move, to throw my hat in the ring with them and charge, but no one has come forward to claim my service.
I have led two attempts to wrangle the masses into action and while the Summit produced some positive outcomes, it did not achieve its purpose. The first attempt was a total disaster. I have reluctantly led, been willing to follow, I don't know what else I might do, but wait for Godot.
