The Three Percenters. (III%)

* During the Revolutionary War, only THREE percent of the people actually fought against Great Britain.

* Only TEN percent of the citizens actively supported that three percent.

* Approximately TWENTY percent considered themselves to be on the side of the Revolution, but they did not actively participate.

* Toward the climactic end of the war, approximately THIRTY percent actually fought on the side of the British.

* The rest of the citizens had no disposition either way. They didn’t care. They didn’t want anything to do with what they deemed to simply be a political issue.

The sanctity, liberty, and freedoms of this nation were brought about by the unselfish, honorable, patriotic, committed, and determined acts of a mere 3%.

This three percent didn’t let the comforts of life blind them to the eternal significance of freedom. They didn’t allow evil speaking to sway what their heart told them was true. They didn’t postpone their actions for a more convenient time. They didn’t value their own life over the life and liberty of their fellow citizens.

In many cases, they sealed their testimony of Freedom, Liberty, and Choice with their blood and the blood of their families. Although it was only three percent, it was still sufficient to create a nation which was to be an example to all the rest of the world of a truly free republic. This three percent laid the foundation of the most powerful and prosperous nation on the earth. This valiant three percent manifested to the entire nation, and surely even the world, the unalienable value of hope, faith, family, virtue and freedom.

    Interesting information. Using these percentages, along with today’s USA population number from the 2010 census (308,745,538), we can calculate how many people would be needed today to defend Freedom, Liberty, and our Constitution from our oppressors.

    We would need 9,262,366 (3%) people to fight for our Constitution.
    We would need 30,874,554 (10%) people to actively support the Constitution.
    We would need 61,749,108 (20%) people to be on the side of the Constitution.
    There would be 92,623,661 (30%) people that would be on the side of our oppressors.
    And, the 114,235,849 (37%) remaining would be apathetic.

    I AM III%

    Call me a V%-er. I strongly support the Constitution, even revere it, and DO help in small ways, like volunteering for the Run-Ben-Run campaign and teaching my kids why the Constitution shines. But it is a journey of heart and mind, pushing toward being a III%’er, yet one I am willing to make. It takes both time and thought. For me, I look to the strength “behind” that document; the Judeo-Christian values once found in larger quantity in America.

    The number of militias and membership is growing fast. The Founder’s warnings of standing up to tyranny have struck home.

    The increases are flamed by the actions and inactions of the many entities within the USA that command and control We, the People.

    From government and their bureaucracies to the legal system and the monolithic corporations with their massive influence the common citizens of the USA are being trampled upon.

    The militia movement is a natural reaction by a free people who have become powerless within a country controlled by an elite class whose army of lackeys control the many systems of command and control that guides the day-to-day and long-term functions of all that comprises the USA.
