❝ Down a Georgia country road, camouflaged members of the Three Percent Security Force have mobilized for rifle practice, hand-to-hand combat training — and an impromptu campaign rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump…

As the most divisive presidential election in recent memory nears its conclusion, some armed militia groups are preparing for the possibility of a stolen election on Nov. 8 and civil unrest in the days following a victory by Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I will be there to render assistance to my fellow countrymen, and prevent them from being disarmed, and I will fight and I will kill and I may die in the process,” said Hill, who founded his Georgia-based militia several years ago…

Just in case you wondered who is ready to die for the idjit vote, guns and glory, RTFA. No surprises and, hopefully, these dimwits are still governed by a touch of common sense when it comes to confrontation with legitimate law and order.
