The Three Percent in 1775.

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders’ Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any further circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders’ Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic.

We are the people that the collectivists who now control the government should leave alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption. We are the Three Percent. Attempt to further oppress us at your peril.

To put it bluntly, leave us the hell alone.

Or, if you feel froggy, go ahead AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

This is from Sipsey Street Irregulars and I agree with this statement and fully support it.

  1. In addition to only 3 % of he Colonist population rising up, you have to remember that our politics were dirty even back then. When it came time to sign the Constitution, only 9 of the 13 colonies willingly signed. The remaining 4 were forced into signiing under threat of starvation, excess taxes and the prevention of free trade. I do not toe any party line. I tow the “me” line. And I was raised to back up my word, honor what I say, and stand my ground without backing down.
    If the government wants to control my weapons, then they better register my cast iron cookware and tableware too. I’m a knife and tomahawk thrower, and I was taught to survive in any terrain.

  2. Hello all. I’m “Artemus” and a PROUD Vet of the U.S. Navy & Army and former cop from TX – (now I’m stuck in Uglyhoma) – Anyway – Yes, we did fight amongst ourselves back then – but look at where we are now, the greatest country in the world- (I think) As Charlie Daniels put it – “We have done a little bit of fighting amongst ourselves, but you outsiders best leave us alone” The same still holds true today. If TSHTF – I’ll be the first one with the necessary implements in hand and start getting busy. I’m pissed b/c as a 7 year Vet (now with PTSD) the V.A. has denied me benefits. It’ll take me a year & 1/2 to appeal it !!!!!!!!! Flabergasted does not even come close to the way I feel about that. I’m a grown man – 47, I was so mad and felt betrayed by my own Gov’t, that I actually came home in tears!!!!! Well, NO MORE TEARS !!!!! I’m mad as hell and I will be with the rest of you Patriots ready to go, and if anyone gets hurt, my wife “Viking” will be there to patch us up and get back out there. I am willing to die in a pile of my own brass if I have to!!!!!Thank you for letting me vent. God Speed Patriots!!!!!!
