American Pirate - ManifestoOver 230 years ago citizens throughout the colonies, realized self reliance was not enough. Attempting to take care of oneself along with family and property, in conjunction with participating in some type of community was becoming hindered by outside influences. The human need to belong and be recognized by one’s peers was becoming controlled by unseen, uncareing, unyielding foreign military powers. Commerce was being influenced more by political agendas than “supply and demand”. The average “citizen” realized that laws and tariffs were not fairly developed or enforced equally to all. Financial influences by far away global corporations that have no interest or concern for anything other than “profit”! There is a difference between vigilantism and being vigilant. Most citizens of this country are not prepared for most unforeseen situations. It is easy to have “Morals” and “Principles” when they are not challenged. I do not encourage you to join me.
