how will you tell

coltpaxcoltpax Member Posts: 8,114
I got to thinkin today, and just had some thoughts. How will us pro gun and constitution fellers identify ourselves to others in a SHTF america? If the feds are confiscating guns right and left, how are we gonna tell who is on our side? I dont want to end up in a confrontation with any other people who support what I support. Can yall print some cool patches? Ha, that would be awesome though. But yea, Im not really expecting an anwer, but that just popped in my mind on the way to walmarts.

    well if they are there confiscating your guns i doubt if they are strict constitutionalist.


    a patch would be cool though.

    At this point, I am unsure if the OP is indulging in sarcasm, or attempting to actually learn something.
    As for friend/foe ..that will be determined by the direction the rifles are pointing.
    There will be mistakes made...anyone paying attention has heard of many instances of `friendly fire` killings even with the modern military ..equipped with all their fancy, sophisticated electronics.
    A patch sounds peachy keen ; Until you realize in the conditions we are likely to encounter, the mere possession of such guarantees a bullet in the head...on the spot.

    There will develop systems to separate the Beast-men from friendlies...Indeed, even today, you often need talk to a person a only a few moments to realize the kinship with some...and, conversely, the utter revulsion one feels for the followers of the Beast.

    quote:our founding fathers would agree with me.
    I would ask you...politely ..to stop polluting the Founders with your attempts to identify with them.
    You would not be fit to shine the boots of one of the founders...or dung out their stables.

    Tens of thousands of rabble fled this country during and after the War...and there is not the slightest doubt in my mind that you would have been among that `select' group.

    The only reason I can see that you would have remained ;
    Perhaps you would have seen a way to profit off the suffering and death of far better men then you.

    As has been said before, the more people know about certain things the greater the chance "loose lips" will sink your proverbial ship so people will be very cautious who they associate with.

    Yeah, what about these child killing, gun grabbing, homo helping government storm troopers, who have sworn allegiance to the united nations, are they Americans?
    Hell no their not Americans!
    If we shoot at the enemy we will die, such is war as they will die as well, feds feds feds, big deal, you are afraid of these henchmen that adorn a uniform and are employed by the government of which they give their allegiance too, as all that they are is henchmen of the government nothing more, a crooked and un-Constitutional government run by corrupt self seeking opportunists that are part of a collective thinking machine.
    We have already gone the route of standardized elections and who is to say that they are not corrupt, do we really know for sure, the elected officials never follow what they were elected to accomplish and there are always a myriad of scandals that we know of, etc, etc.
    Traitors? Depends on what or whom you are considered a traitor too, in this case, corrupt politicians and a tyrannical government, our Fore Fathers were also considered traitors as well, it really doesn't matter if the enemy considers you a traitor.
    Neither the 'feds' nor the government have upheld the Constitution as they have sworn and we are therefore no longer required to follow their laws, we pledged allegiance to the Constitution not a government. Thomas Jefferson said it paramount when he stated that when the government no longer serves the people then the government should be overthrown, that speaks volumes about how are Fore Fathers felt about our Republic and the Constitution. So NO, our Fore Fathers would not agree, but would disagree vehemently and act as militant insurgents against tyranny and show disdain for those that abuse their positions in government and sell out our Republic and its Constitution, curtailing their responsibilities to the people for a few pieces of silver and a false sense of security, which will fail miserably.

    [:0] [:0] ...very funny!

    Maybe fly a Gadsden Flag or similar?
    Enemies of armed self-defense focus on the gun. They ignore the person protected with that gun.

    Yes, the Gadsden Flag, various Skull and Bones Flags(also known as Death Head Flags) or the Confederate Flag make great battle flags and should dispatch the general impression of your plans to the enemy. As an American Flag however, the Betsy Ross Flag seems to be a better American Flag as it represents the Constitution and our heritage much better and as our Fore Fathers also chose to stop using the the Grand Union Flag in lew of our Independence from england, so also brings into question of our use of the stars and stripes flag which is in current use by the united states government.
