Reacting to Bob Wright's earlier post on seriousness of purpose, a reader contacted Bob with this question:
Mr. Wright,Your time is valuable, and although you don't know me from Adam, your insight and wisdom would be greatly appreciated. I'm just a soft around the middle individualist. I don't profess to lead men or wallow around in the mud playing Rambo, but I'm dedicated to the cause of freedom from government tyranny. I wouldn't make a good troop soldier; I've had one hip replaced, and the other is slowly failing. I struggle to carry my four year old son from one room to another when he wants a tiny bit of coddling. What can I do other than die under a hail of bullets for resisting disarmament if it comes to that?
Mr. REDACTED:I am pleased to answer your communication. I recognize that the communication Mike posted is a chastisement of a group for failing to train properly( one of my most common rants) I will tell you now it will take at least 5 non-fighters to every fighter to have a hope of actually resisting. Every skill under the sun will be needed.Not knowing your history or background I cannot map a specific course for you to take, perhaps I can encourage you to leave behind any misgivings about your inability to carry a rifle making you unfit for important, possibly essential service, in the cause of freedom and Liberty. As we mount an effective resistance, carrying a rifle will be one of the easier things to do. The dedicated and relentless efforts of the non fighters in support of the fighters will be the single greatest determiner of our success or failure.Look at any Army anywhere, you will find a 5 to 20 support to fighter ratio exists. Without them the Army dies. So it would make an interesting after dinner conversation as to which group actually wins the wars that Army will fight.There is a place for every skill set in the resistance. We will need welders, fabricators, mechanics, medics, heavy equipment operators, clerks, carpenters, electricians, computer apps people, teachers, communicators, writers, photographers, historians, dentists, cartage specialists, packaging distribution specialists, Energy specialists, propagandists, safe houses, local guides, engineers of the chemical, electrical, and mechanical varieties, logistics specialists of all kinds and lets not forget fundraising specialists to help fund it all. I am asking that you find your specialty, that which you can do and can contribute and make it work to support the resistance. If we could get a good representation of the above skill sets all working with common goals and coordinated direction we could not lose.And just for the record I do not "wallow around in the mud playing Rambo", I work very hard to try to give real life training that will increase the trainees chance of surviving his encounter with the evil ones.God Bless you sir and if you determine just what the skill set is you can contribute let me know and I will see if I can put you to work.PS: Have talked with Mike V and shared our exchange He would like to post it on the blog . . . if that would be ok with you. Please advise.Bob Wright.
