Gary and I have worked hard these last 2 yrs (15+ for Gary) to get We the People to understand the role, and the importance of the Committees of Safety, and to get them re-established once again. I have read comments that the CoS are outdated and of no use in a modern theater. I have read and heard ppl say that no Militia commander would subordinate to a civil authority. I would like to re-post the story of how a modern CoS formed, mustered the Militia, and saved a small neighborhood from a natural disaster, with no help from the local gov't, or police. This story is courtesy of Layton at WRAM, a good man, who remembers being taught about the CoS long long ago, when he was a child. Here is his story:

"You know, there is a lot of talk about Katrina,and rightfully so, but I was in Houston for Rita, and our street was without ANY services for over a Month. We did not see any LEO for almost a month, well, my neighbors came to me and wanted to do something to protect themselves,so we got together and the ones that did not have weapons, I loaned then the ones I had and ammo, we got the 2 streets on either side of us to also join in, we then worked out a 24/7 guard roster,then blockaded the entrances to the 3 streets and manned them and set up roving patrols on the streets to protect the homes of the ones that evacuated.

It worked out real good, we pooled all supplies and had mass meals together,had a command post set up in a garage manned 24/7 and all had contact with walkie talkies,and at one house that the VP was at, we also had a ready reaction force to go where needed if required.At about a month,we had one patrol car stop and he saw what we were doing and thanked us and radioed back that they did not need to work that area as it was secure.

What does this have to do with the subject, well in actually a lot, you see,just think about it, we had a MINI COS, we had the command structure, we had input from the citizens as to what they would like, we had a mini Militia in a sense and we had the civilian input.Plus we had the unity of the three streets agreeing to come and work together as one for a common goal. So you see,one will not work without the others, if no one would have worked together for the common goal, it would have been every one for themselves.

The working together part has to happen before the others can happen,see point?"

To all the nay sayers, and doubters, I say Think Again! This story is a perfect example of why a CoS is so necessary, as well as a "sales tool" for pitching the CoS to your neighbors, and getting them involved. Pitching them as they "really are" to Tea Partiers, and others, could put more of that demonizing/negative light on the CoS right now, so we must adapt and overcome, and bring a new view of them, a new presentation.

The CoS, It's What the Founders Did

Randy:
That is a powerful example of what We the People are capable of doing when a need arises. After reading it, I am going to prepare a disaster response plan for my neighborhood and present it to our next neighborhood association meeting which will included a discussion of CoS.
Thanks and God Bless you and Gary for the work you are doing to restore our Republic.

Mike,
I will suggest that some attorneys will discourage the neighborhood association from participating in something like disaster preparedness, suggesting liability, and any other excuse they can think of. Be prepared for that.

If that does occur, then you nee to be ready to suggest that the members who are concerned join a Committee of Safety association, also, that will be prepared for disaster preparedness.

If they question liability, ask them if free Americans cannot look out for themselves without having to concern themselves with liability, or, have the attorneys gone so far that we can no longer look out for ourselves.

Hi Gary:

Thanks for the feedback. Perhaps subconsciously, I ignored the liability issue as I honestly despise attorneys for how they have perverted our concept of justice in America. Still, I will incorporate your recommendations into my own so thanks again for your input. It is always appreciated.

Maj Cross has recommended the formation of local CoS' though I have not yet started that process, though I will now commit tot that as well.

If my neighbors are worried about liability, I will ask them if the threat of potential liability outweighs the real probability of economic collapse and the ensuing chaos that will threaten our very lives. If they cannot see the value in a CoS then, all I can do is find others who do and move on.

God Bless Brother,
Mike

Mike, I'm glad you see benefit in the CoS, and have the motivation to get them set up. Any help you need, just ask and we'll see what we can do. You can also approach the local VFW, Legion, and local Tea Party groups, those would be your easiest converts to be honest.
