THE U.S. WANTS YOU! MINUTEMAN PROJECT SEEKS VOLUNTEERS MINUTEMAN UPDATE - 15 November 2004 Dear Americans, The MinuteMan Project currently has 83 volunteers from the following 17 states: Arizona 40; California 14; Colorado 1; Florida 2; Illinois 1; Massachusetts 2; NewJersey 1; Nebraska 1; New Mexico 6; New York 2; Ohio 3; Oklahoma 1; Oregon 2; Tennessee 1; Texas 3; Virginia 1; Wyoming 1; [plus 1 from Canada] If YOU, or someone you know, wants to participate in The Minuteman Project, please read the recruiting poster below and respond accordingly. * * * * * * To Citizens of the Republic of the United States of America: Are YOU interested in spending up to 30 days along the Arizona border as part of a blocking force against entry into the U.S. by illegal aliens early next spring? I invite you to join me in Tombstone, Arizona from APRIL 1 - 30, 2005 to protect our country from a 40-year-long invasion across our southern border with Mexico. Chris Simcox of Civil Homeland Defense, and the publisher of the Tombstone Tumbleweed newspaper in Tombstone, Arizona has helped protect our borders for five years with only a handful of patriotic volunteers. It is time we provided him with reinforcements. I am recruiting volunteers to converge on the southern border of Arizona for the purpose of aiding the U.S. Border Patrol in "spotting" intruders entering the U.S. illegally. This is strictly a volunteer project. No financial subsidies are available. And, you will probably need a tent, sleeping bag etc. You will be responsible for all costs associated with your participation. Currently, about 5,000 "unapprehended" illegal aliens trespass the Arizona/Mexico border DAILY. Another 5,000 invade the U.S. from the Texas, California and New Mexico borders...DAILY. That's 10,000 per day - 300,000 per month. Over 3,000,000 (three million) per year! Our objective will be to spot these intruders with the aid of binoculars - telescopes - night vision scopes, and inform the U.S. Border Patrol of the location of the trespassers so that border patrol agents can intercept and detain them. Generally, we will not be confronting the illegal aliens. The tentative area of observation will be a 30-mile stretch of forested highlands, and lowlands along the San Pedro River. I hope to bring serious media and political attention to this event. It will tune the American people into the shameful fact that 21st century minutemen/women have to help secure US borders because the US government REFUSES to provide our dutiful U.S. Border Patrol and Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with the manpower and funding required to do so. I estimate the cost per person (for 30 days) could be as high as $3,500, depending on your travel, meal and lodging arrangements. I intend to stay the entire 30 days of this mission, however, that length of time is not a requirement to volunteer. The Tombstone area parks offer some interesting hunting, hiking, camping, and mountain climbing opportunities for avid outdoorsmen/women. If YOU are interested in participating in this unprecedented event, please contact me via email at: email@example.com [ all lower case ] Please provide me with a brief history of yourself. For example, your vocation, any military background, outdoors (outback) experience, etc. There are no prerequisites for joining this mission, however, I would like to know something about the experiences of those responding to this invitation. The Minuteman Project welcomes participants regardless of gender, race, color, creed, age, or physical disability. An enthusiastic invitation is extended to current and former members of any law enforcement organization, or military veterans with reconnaisance (LRRP) or intelligence gathering experience. Please INCLUDE the following information in your email response: 1. Name 2. Address 3. Telephone number and best time to call 4. Brief statement why you want to participate in this project 5. Brief account of any similar experiences related to the mission of The MinuteMan Project. 6. Amount of time (1 - 30 days) you desire to participate. 7. Any ailments or physical disabilities that might limit the "type" of participation, i.e., limited to deskwork only, confined to a wheel chair, etc. 8. Any foreign language(s) in which you communicate with reasonable fluency. The MinuteMan Project is in its development stage. More information about the project will follow as this plan comes together. D-DAY is 1 April, 2005. [PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL] Cheers, An American Without A Country James W.

When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him...for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -Mark Twain "While we slept, the United States was stolen." - author unknown "At the current rate of invasion the United States will be completely over run with ILLEGAL aliens by the year 2025...only 21 years away. ILLEGAL aliens and their offspring will be the dominant population in the U.S. and will have made such inroads into the political and social systems that they will have more influence than our Constitution over how the U.S. is governed. That ugly consequence is already taking place. The United States of America is under invasion." --- James Gilchrist - The MinuteMan Project Come on 'Merica, since our government doen't giva diddley, I spose we're a gonna hafta... Hope to see ya there...!
