Why join a militia?
Because you are a free being, with rights that need defending from those who do not respect them.
Because among those rights are the rights to self-defense and free association.
Because there is nothing wrong with joining a militia, unless they intend to start a fight.
Because the state can’t always protect you, and a militia can fill some of the gaps in that protection.
Because militias have an undeserved bad reputation, which good citizens like yourself can help improve.
Because society is less civilized than we deceive ourselves into believing, and that veneer can peel off faster than an Ikea paint job.
Because certain traditions are worth honoring and defending and promoting.
Because there are real-life, next door problems that the military is not being used to stop.
Because the government is not your friend.
Because you already are a militia of one.
