Probably the one question we get asked the most is “What is 3% of Idaho?”
You wouldn’t think that would be that difficult to answer would you? Trust me when I say we didn’t either!
Where the biggest issue comes into play is with regard to the traditional view of “What is 3%” when combined with what many assume a 3%’er is.
So many these days automatically associate “militia” with 3%’er which is understandable but not totally accurate and when you add in that many who claim to be 3%’ers can actually be close to (at the least) a domestic terrorist. So much of the perception boils down to do you find yourself thinking of ways to defend yourself and your family should the government attempt to overstep their authority or do you think of ways to actually be the aggressor in hopes of derailing those powers that be and their efforts you may deem as overreach.
Here at 3% of Idaho we fall into the first group … but we have had a tough time saying it in such a way it’s easily understood. Why, exactly, that’s been the case has eluded us for quite some time. However, we recent were made aware of an article published by a fellow patriot and when we read it we couldn’t help but stand up and yell … “THAT’S IT!“
