Re: [FSP] membership growth over time
- There is a wild card that the L.P., and FSP hold, that you may not
even know you have in your hand. That is the ever boiling tempers of
all our liberties being stripped away daily, all in the name of
fighting terrorism. Most of the lemming media brain washed public
don't care, but I'm sure these new laws will push 10s of thousands of
liberty minded people who are already fed up with the Gov., to the
breaking point. No doubt a few thousand of them will be looking for
organazations like ours, and the L.P., to join.
In short, FSP membership list should see a spike as these laws are
more widely reported, and horror stories start occurring to the
IE, the ATF gistapo, barge in looking for anything and everything
that they may deem as a treat, only to find out that not only have
your liberties have lost a few layers, but also, that the Gov. has
the WRONG house, person, or whatever.
Ok, I drifted off topic a bit...bye for now.
