Below is the thread I began a long time back. Today, in 2013, I see that I did not do a good job of explaining what the militia IS. We began explaining what the statutes say a militia is composed of, but not what it IS.

When I return to this thread, we will pick back up and examine it further. For now, you have the beginning of it all:



Militia - n. 1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers.
2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency.
3. The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service.

http://www.answers.com/topic/militia

On behalf of the people at the Militia of Georgia and U.S. Militias, I'd like to welcome you to this board and offer you the opportunity to learn all about the militia. This thread will begin to tell you a little about who we are, what we do and how you (no matter where you live) can be of service to your country as a patriot and a Citizen / Soldier.

The Militia of Georgia is a nonprofit, unincorporated association of volunteer activists working to restore and promote the ideals of Freedom, Liberty and God given Rights. We are activists, patriots and citizen soldiers defending the Blessings of Liberty that our forefathers fought, bled and died in order to secure for us and generations yet to be born.

First started in 1987, the Militia of Georgia lays claim to being the legitimate and constitutional militia representing all the citizenry of Georgia. We are the oldest and most continuous militia in existence in the United States and the largest in Georgia.

This discussion board is also the home of U.S. Militias, an effort by people in every state to bring about reasonable standards to the militia whereby we can all work together and have some reasonable expectations from our fellow militia brethren. This effort will be more fully discussed in a separate forum.

TYPES OF MILITIAS

There are several kinds of militias in America. The major types are the Organized Militia which consists of the Army, Navy, USMC, USCG, Air Force, Reserves and National Guard. Then there is the Unorganized Militia which consists of the able bodied citizens who may be called upon in cases of an emergency.

In the category of Unorganized Militias, you have private (select) militias and those which are constitutional militias.

A select militia can be one of several different varieties. One more modern interpretation of a select militia is:

"A select militia is a group which receives pay, training, and tasks above and beyond what is expected of the general population. The National Guard is an example of a select militia"

http://polyticks.com/polyticks/beararms/beararms.htm

And yet another example of a select militia can be found in the following description:

"A select militia was an armed group formed not from the entire population of a jurisdiction by public notice, but selected by some method that might make them unrepresentative of the community, and a threat to lawful government or to the community"

http://www.constitution.org/col/5508_col.htm

The Militia of Georgia is a constitutional militia - and as of this writing the only constitutional militia in existence in the state of Georgia.

Beginning in 1987, the Militia of Georgia operated as loose knit survival and patriot type organizations held together by intermittent meetings and survival / patriot functions (such as survival expos.)

The first militia units were formed under the leaderless resistance module as envisioned by Lt. Col. Ulius Louis Amoss which were employed by far right groups including the Ku Klux Klan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaderless_resistance

In 1998 it became apparent that the U.S. genuinely needed to reestablish the unorganized militia which had been neglected for a number of decades. Small survival and militia groups began meeting informally and discussing ways to unite and create a people's militia. In 1999 all of the known militia and survival organizations began meeting to create an elected body to represent the people and the Militia of Georgia emerged as the preeminent militia. Officers were elected and the governor of Georgia was contacted and informed that the unorganized militia was now active and had an elected body.

Every two years thereafter, the state leadership faces an election in which all the participating militia units across the state vote for the Commanding Officer and the Executive Officer. The Militia of Georgia is the only militia in Georgia which was formed by all the known militia units across the state and by public notice. And although we no longer live in a constitutional Republic as guaranteed in Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution, the Militia of Georgia is the closest thing the people have to a constitutional militia and the only one which is accessible to all the militia members across the board.

In the next posting on this thread, we will describe what the militia believes in and what they do. Additionally you will begin learning how YOU can become part of the militia, regardless of where you are in the United States.

What is the Militia of Georgia and what do we do?

In the previous posting we described ourselves and you probably know, from reading a lot of other sites, what most people think the militia is. Let's look at all this a bit closer. You've read the following quote quite a few times, but let's examine it once again:

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

The founding fathers intended that the people should be armed as a bulwark against tyranny and oppression. However, I'd like to share an analogy with you in order to describe what the militia is and what it is we do:

As you realize, just about any male in their prime can donate his sperm via the act of sexual intercourse and create a child. That makes him a father. But, the guy who donates his sperm and then leaves town will be a father, but he will not be a daddy.

The daddy is the guy who gets up at 2 a.m. and gets peed on, puked on, and has to endure the changing of diapers. He is the guy who is the authority figure who teaches and nurtures the child while providing the necessities of life and providing a loving and stable home.

As you can see from that example, there is a difference between a father and a daddy. And so it goes with the militia.

The founding fathers said many times that they intended for us be guaranteed the Right to keep and bear Arms:

"The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun." (Patrick Henry)

When the citizens have guns, it does not, in and of itself, constitute a militia. It's just citizens with guns. When those citizens take on the role of a Citizen / Soldier and exhibit those attributes which a soldier would have do they then become militia.

The Second Amendment reads as follows:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the Right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

As Citizen / Soldiers, we should be well regulated. That is, we must have firearms, ammo, spare parts and the training it takes to be qualified soldiers. We have to know a little about the law so as to know when to respond and the proper way to respond. We have to understand a little about politics so that we know what it is we believe in and when the appropriate time to act is and exactly what response is justified given a set of circumstances. In the Militia of Georgia we have drawn well defined lines in the sand and your militia brethren should be willing and able to join you in defense of certain principles. Check out this link for the complete details:

http://www.freeforum101.com/usmilitias/viewtopic.php?t=6&mforum=usmilitias

When you have established your lines in the sand, made a commitment to Liberty and have (or are in the process of) obtaining the requisite gear, then you may be ready to join the Militia of Georgia.

What does the Militia of Georgia do?

In the Militia of Georgia you will network with people in your area to become self sufficient so as to be able to function even if cut off from the rest of society due to inclement weather, civil disorders or even an outright war.

You will train and work with people, preferably in your own community, becoming proficient in the same skill sets that a regular soldier would have.

You will aid in recruiting others into the militia and educating others on issues of relevance regarding Liberty and Freedom.

You will prepare for all kinds of scenarios.

We will provide the networking opportunities. We will offer access to the training. We will even work with you to make sure you acquire the requisite gear you need and the training you will need. You will be afforded training opportunities, opportunities to meet others in your neighborhood who share your interests and outlook.

The Militia of Georgia provides you the vehicle. It is up to you to utilize the militia and become a real Citizen / Soldier.

In the next posting we will tell all you need to know in order to join the Militia of Georgia and start helping.

I appreciate the vote of confidence and will finish this up before entertaining questions others may have.

What we believe - How you can join and get involved

The Militia of Georgia believes that:

1) All men are created equal and that the source of our Rights comes from our Creator (our God, whomever we deem that to be)

2) Rights are unalienable. They cannot be bought, sold, taken away nor given away. The only way a person can "lose" their Rights is through the conviction of an actual crime (by a jury of their peers) - and such "crimes" cannot include you exercising a Right you already have

3) While the people in the Militia of Georgia acknowledge that we no longer live in a de jure (lawful) constitutional Republic, as envisioned by the drafters of the Constitution, we also point out that the people have never legally repealed the Constitution. As such, we openly declare that we are working to preserve, protect and defend that Constitution as it was originally written and intended by the framers

4) Finally we are guided in philosophy by the Declaration of Independence and incorporate it as a basis for defending Liberties and Freedoms.

How the Militia of Georgia is organized


The Militia of Georgia begins at the very basic level of a Unit. Each individual Unit is comprised of people (preferably living close proximity to each other) who will work and train together. Every Unit begins with the individual militia member who chooses who he / she wants to work the closest with. While the Militia of Georgia will recruit and accept ALL qualified people, the Unit is of local structure and selects its members according to their own criteria. The State Headquarters does not dictate who may or may not be admitted to any given Unit; the State HQ will not involve itself in how each individual Unit chooses its officers.

In theory, you can join the Militia of Georgia and be denied membership in the Unit closest to where you live. You will still be a militia member and the State Headquarters will help you establish a Unit in your area that is separate from any which may deny you membership if you so choose - OR, you may opt to be a Member at Large (which simply means you are not part of a Unit.)

We suggest, but certainly do not mandate that each Unit should be at least three people, but should not exceed twelve or so members. The bigger a Unit becomes, the more cumbersome it becomes; therefore the less effective the Unit becomes.

At the next level is your State Headquarters. The State HQ is comprised of a Commanding Officer (C.O.) and an Executive Officer (X.O.) The Commanding Officer and the Executive Officer are elected officials who run every two years and are approved by the individual Units within the militia.

The State HQ is in charge of regulating the militia. The State HQ oversees the training, education of members, the public relations and the general business of the militia. The State HQ will make sure you have the requisite equipment and training with which to do the job and they will coordinate militia activities.

It is up to State HQ to decide which actions will be pursued and what avenues of redress we will seek when circumstances dictate. All media interviews and statements thereto must be routed through the State HQ. All joint FTXs (Field Training Exercises) involving members of different Units must be presented to the State HQ as do any kind of business relations between different Units and outside organizations and entities. In addition, the State HQ may create specialty Units within the State HQ command to take on necessary tasks as needed.

Finally, you have a Rules Committee. The Rules Committee is comprised of ONE representative in each Unit. Each Unit selects their own representative, who will be known as a Captain at State HQ functions (though their actual rank within their Unit may be at a different level.)

The job of the Rules Committee is to pass Rules and Regulations to be sent to the C.O. for implementation or veto. The Rules Committee MAY, at your option, be used as your first line of recourse in any dispute you may have with the militia, the members, policies, etc. You may take your complaint (s) to the State HQ, but there is no appeal from State HQ decisions. By contrast, either side in any militia dispute may apply for an appeal of a Rules Committee decision at the State HQ level.

So how do I join?


You've read what the militia is all about; read the Final Notice and Appeal; researched the group and asked about its leaders. Now you want to know what you have to do in order to join. Here are the steps:

1) Your first step is to fill out an Application for Enlistment and sign an Agreement / Waiver of Liability. These can be obtained from the Militia of Georgia by sending an e mail to mog.legal@yahoo.com OR writing to us at P.O. Box 158 USPS, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046

2) You may be recommended to a Unit OR we may ask if you if you'd like help establishing one in your area if none are available and / or not accepting new members

3) You will be contacted from a representative from the State HQ and interviewed. From there, you would be given a handbook and instructed on how you can meet your qualifications for attaining the rank of Militiaman 1, which signifies that you have fulfilled your probationary requirements. See the Members Info forum on this board for complete details

4) Once you've completed the paperwork, begin training to meet your minimum qualifications and met with a militia representative (or gotten into an existing Unit), you will become a Recruit In Faculty and on your way to being Militiaman.

You have the basics. And if you have any questions on what we've covered in this thread, by all means ask away. Thank you for your time and patience on this subject.

After reading many of the board headings, it became obvious to me that it is sometimes just too difficult to find all the information in one spot. So, in the balance of this thread I will point you to some discussions from the past that will help you answer any questions you may have about the militia, what we do, etc.

The first thing I want to mention in this posting is that the Militia of Georgia is the only militia in the state of Georgia whose leaders are NOT appointed. This militia went through a lengthy process to become a militia that you could have complete confidence in. Unlike the small, self proclaimed militias, all our officers are selected by the members they serve; the commanding officer comes up for re-election every two years. We'd like for you to read the following link if you have any questions about who, in the state of Georgia, constitutes the legitimate militia (upon which the people could rely on as a defense against tyranny):

http://www.freeforum101.com/usmilitias/viewtopic.php?t=154&mforum=usmilitias


NOTE: While we are the legitimate militia in Georgia, others have tried to usurp our name. Don't be deceived. These operations were generally started by a single individual setting themselves up as "Commanding Officer," Lieutenant Colonel (sic)... or even a higher rank.

And, while they tell the public they are not a "racist" organization, their affiliates ARE, in fact, associated with the KKK and some of their supporters are former members of racist groups. We are not making any judgment as to the value of such relationships, but we feel that full disclosure IS necessary. We have made a full disclosure about our leadership and history:

Just a little something about the militia:


Quote:
“The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.” -- Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper No. 28

Quote:
“The President, and government, will only control the militia when a part of them is in the actual service of the federal government, else, they are independent and not under the command of the president or the government. The states would control the militia, only when called out into the service of the state, and then the governor would be commander in chief where enumerated in the respective state constitution.” -- Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper No. 69

Quote:
“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People.” -- Tench Coxe, 1788

Quote:
“What sir is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane (poison) of liberty.” -- Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, I Annals of Congress at 750 (17 August 1789)

Quote:
“The militia is the natural defense of a free country against foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. The right of citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of liberties of the republic, since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the U.S. (1833)


Just a little reminder of the true intent!

What The Militia of Georgia Can DO For You?


Many militia organizations come and go. They all follow the same general path in their creation and demise. Some well intentioned patriot will start up a discussion board and / or website. He or she will then anoint themselves with a rank of "Sergeant Major," "Major," "Lieutenant Colonel," etc. and begin recruiting.

This new militia will rent a building for meetings or maybe they will lease some hunting land for a big outdoor shindig, complete with military vehicles, uniformed army wannabes and lots of guns. Newbies come in, check out the eye candy and figure that the self appointed "Lieutenant Colonel" has their excrement together and that group seems to "take off" with the sky as the limit.

However, once the work begins, the leadership finds out that most of the people they recruited have personal issues, prejudices and sometimes personality disorders which keep them from being able to work as a cohesive unit. As time goes on, the new militia figures out that a lax policy on the regulation of the militia doesn't work. And the new rules that come into play mean that many will throw their hands up in the air and declare that "nobody can tell me what to do."

Those who have financial problems, emotional problems, marital issues, prior legal issues, etc. may be approached by law enforcement... or perhaps a spouse or other family member may be approached. Then you end up with members who are there to give information to the alphabet agencies and / or create dissension within the ranks. Actually, some new militia organizations are created by those very people when they cannot infiltrate their host militia.

Anyway, we feel it's best to tell you up front what it is the Militia of Georgia can do for you and what you can expect before you make a commitment. Let's start with the State Headquarters. Here are the top things we do at the State HQ level:

1) Recruit new members

2) Maintain a website and / or discussion board to keep everyone plugged in to news, events and relevant information and training

3) Provide you with contacts in your neighborhood where you can join an existing Unit in your neighborhood OR start your own Unit of the militia which would be subject to the rules and regulations of the Militia of Georgia

4) Provide training and networking opportunities

5) Establish rules and regulations necessary in the maintenance of a well regulated militia

6) Assist each individual militia member in acquiring the requisite gear and training necessary to carry out their duties

7) Assist Units in acquiring the requisite level of knowledge and skills required to function

8) Provide a vehicle whereby all Units can be of assistance to their communities and the state

If you enter the Militia of Georgia expecting eye candy (easy access to weapons, military gear, etc.) you will be sorely disappointed. BEFORE an individual militiaman goes into a live fire exercise of any kind, they MUST show a minimum competency level of understanding: familiarization with their weapons and gear, knowledge of all the safety rules and having the proper safety equipment (shooting glasses, ear protection, etc.)

The training you get will begin at an INDIVIDUAL level. Once you have done some basic preparations at an individual level, you will be equipped to interact with a Unit. That means you will acquire some requisite gear, develop a personal Evacuation - Rendezvous Plan for your home and family; create your own Bug Out Bag and come up with a Family Communications Protocol.

Once you have demonstrated your commitment to preparedness and have actually demonstrated that you can and will organize at the individual level you will be introduced to the same types of training at the Unit level and beyond... but, not before.

MANY times people introduce themselves to the militia and start trying to interact with the militia before they ever even fill out an application and show their commitment level. When they do not achieve their goals of instant self gratification, they are likely to use their exposure to individual militia members to solicit for membership in their version of the Bigger and Better Deal (BBD.) We deliberately place obstacles in the path of those who seek instant self gratification and personal aggrandizement.

It is not our job to recruit for those who want to build their own personal Select Militia. We have to recruit for the benefit of ALL the citizens. And if you want to be successful in the militia, you must be willing to work within the existing structure and if you can do better, use the existing opportunities to get into a position of authority and then DO a better job. EVERY leadership position is available for a challenge at regular intervals. We just want to be up front with you BEFORE you commit to this militia.

I'm just updating this thread. Obviously many people read this thread and still don't know what the militia can do for them. So, let me elaborate:

Once you've submitted an application to join the militia, your training begins. You will take the Basic Militiaman Course. You can do it online, in your spare time and you will end up being more informed and prepared than 85 percent or more of the American population.

From there you might want to opt for S.P.I.K.E. (Specially Prepared Individuals for Key Events.) That is a hard core program for those who take their citizen - soldier skills real serious.

Once you begin your training, we can recommend you to a UNIT in your area provided one exists. If one does not exist, we will gladly jump in and help you recruit some people and start a local UNIT in your neighborhood.

In addition to the training and the help starting a local UNIT, the Militia of Georgia maintains this site for fellowship, discussion and a way to connect and network with others close to you.

Finally, at a more personal level, the state HQ is ready, willing and able to help you reach your goals: get out of debt, learn new skills, become self sufficient, understand the system, and whatever else we can assist with, we are there for you.

Just a curious question, and I'll admit I'm fairly new to the militia movement.

Is the Militia suppose to be Sate or National?
I ask this as I see state militias, then read people saying the Militia should be nationaloized?
Where I am at, they have state ones, and others who are non affiliated with anyone except themselves.

In and of itself, the militia answers directly to the governor of a state. We do not have the authority to "nationalize" the militia.

The Militia of Georgia DOES network and recognize other state militias that have legitimacy. They network with us and have similar standards as we do.

That recognition puts all of us into a category we call U.S. Militias (an organization that existed before the sites using the same name.) Today no "organization" exists in the traditional sense (we call the unified effort U.S. Militias though there is no actual organization, leaders, etc.) It's just a mutual recognition of other militias that have the same standards.

A lot of people see the militia as being part of a resistance movement. So, their Units remain underground. I think that the further we are forced into the NEW WORLD ORDER and left without the constitutional guarantees due in the Constitution that they may very well be operating within the parameters set by the founding fathers. For if we no longer have a de jure (lawful) constitutional Republic, the system may not only refuse to acknowledge the militia, but try to outlaw it. At that point, we may very well be forced to become a resistance effort.

But, let me stress that we are committed to exhausting EVERY legal and nonviolent remedy at our disposal before entertaining the idea of an underground resistance effort. But, as the republic slides into the cesspool of tyrannical control, it is a subject that we need to start thinking about.

Thanks for the information. I agree with the statement "we must exhaust ALL legal and nonviolent means" as our first remedy to the situation.

2011 UPDATE

WHAT IS THE MILITIA?

For whatever reason, many people have chosen this board to prove they are militia and their argument is, the Second Amendment makes them a militiaman.

That is an endless debate in which people without the requisite legal and historical background try to Google a few things about the militia to prove their point. Let me simplify our position to you:

The Second Amendment does not confer any Rights upon anyone. All the Second Amendment can do is guarantee the Right. Your Rights were bestowed upon you at birth by your Creator (your God, whomever you deem that to be.)

You have an individual Right to keep and bear Arms. When the individual is called into militia service or volunteers for militia service, they become a militiaman. There you have a collective Right, a duty, and a moral obligation to defend your Freedoms and Liberties through a militia.

Remember: we opened this thread with a definition of what a militia is. The militia consists of the whole body of people that volunteer for militia duty. It is a "force" or people. An individual with a firearm is NOT the militia. A basketball player is not the Atlanta Hawks. But, the combined roster of players for that team constitute the Atlanta Hawks. It's the same principle with the militia.

Individuals with individual weapons do not constitute a militia. Neither can they insure the security of a free State. The individual still maintains the Right to keep and bear Arms, but does not constitute any force or whole body when acting independently.

Some people can cite you portions of laws and out of context quotes from a myriad of sources, but the plain and simple truth is the founding fathers made it simple:

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive."

Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787)

We cannot defend Liberty and Freedom with individuals that simply want to retain the Right to keep and bear Arms. Unless and until they understand what the purpose of a militia serves, we will live in darkness, destined to live in slavery and oppression. We are more than an auxiliary for the Department of Homeland (IN) Security. We are the last line of defense in a nation, defending your Rights against enemies foreign and domestic.
