Militia for America Now: Manifesto

We, the Militia for America Now (MAN), hold these truths to be self-evident:

  • The United States of America is a grand and noble nation. For much of America’s history, ours has been the greatest of the people, by the people, for the people government on this earth. But our nation is failing. Our heritage is being dishonored. And we the people now face our biggest challenge since we fought King George.
  • Our forefathers understood that we the people must sometimes organize to protect ourselves against government—even governments, like our own, which portray themselves as democratic. That’s why the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights in our constitution—the sacred text of our nation’s government—grants us, America’s citizens, the right to form our own militias.
  • The United States of America is a government whose authority rests on a sacred trust with the American people, as embodied in our constitution. When this government no longer honors this trust, when it no longer represents us, we have a right—no, we have an obligation—to stand up, and hold our government to account.

Therefore, we the people of America, and specifically we the members of MAN, call now for a new American militia, of the kind envisioned by our forefathers! A militia, as our forefathers wrote, "with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt, two spare flints, and a knapsack, a pouch with a box therein to contain not less than twenty-four cartridges, suited to the bore of his musket or firelock, each cartridge to contain a proper quantity of powder and ball.” Or the modern 21st century equivalent thereof.

Our new MAN militia will do two things: it will serve notice to America’s Washington D.C. ruling class that the people of America now have their own force; and, it will empower the America’s people, particularly with respect to their real control over their so-called representatives in Washington, D.C.

We, the citizens of America’s noble experiment in democracy, must now join forces in a new expression of the power that we the people have been granted as a birthright, so that, as Abraham Lincoln said at Gettysburg, "this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom," so that our "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

The time has come to form a militia of the American people. This is our challenge. This is our mission. This is our birthright.

We invite patriotic Americans to join MAN operatives in a 3-day militia exercise in Bucksville, Oregon, April 1-3, 2011. For more information, visit our website: MilitiaForAmericaNow.com.
