Frequently Asked Questions

What is the history of PRO5?
PRO5 formed in March of 2020 when COVID restrictions started to happen. Many of our local patriots needed a place to feel connected, united, and not alone. The group started with about 30 people meeting in a warehouse and has grown in numbers and influence ever since.
What is PRO5?

The legal definition of a militia is:    (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.    (b) The classes of the militia are:          (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and           (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

What does “physical” mean in our purpose statement?
Remember back to when you were a child when someone tried to take your favorite toy from you. What was the first thing you did to stop that person? Chances are you said “NO, this is mine” and asked them to “STOP”. Maybe you negotiated a trade or said they could play with it later. That was you politically engaging with the other person. Now, maybe they didn’t care about your offer and took the toy from you. At that point you probably went to the nearest parent, teacher or adult and pleaded your case on the infraction. This was you acting on your behalf LEGALLY within the system you were taught to rectify a situation. Now, in the instance where the offender would not negotiate, and nobody was there to help you solve the problem, you are left with a choice. Do you defend yourself and your property from the person trying to take it from you or do you become a victim? Natural Law requires us to Claim, Use and Defend our property. Using the PR protocol of defending politically, legally, or physically, IF necessary, fills the Natural Law requirements. This is called an escalation of force protocol, and while we are a peaceful people by nature, IF the time comes to physically defend ourselves, we are united in that effort, promising to one another to help as required as our last line of defense.
Is this a private membership?
Can’t I just attend your meetings without giving my personal information?
We have learned that in order to truly be able to run to the aid of a neighbor, the likelihood of doing so requires us to know one another. Engage at your own risk if you do not want to give your personal info, but don’t say we didn’t warn you if nobody comes to your aid if you decide to remain a stranger. However, without your personal information you will NOT have access to the electronic systems (PRO5 website and Slack).
