For free men understand that if they foolishly allow others to fend for them, then they are forever enslaved to those who would provide them a living and defend them from threat. Warriors and Capitalists distills the essence of true freedom into actionable strategy and tactics. We share with you tools and training that you can use to defend your life and expand your livelihood. Fundamentals that will help to build a better future for your family and this great nation - whether on a battlefield, in the boardroom or on Main Street. Welcome Warriors and Capitalists. Welcome home. You are amongst brothers in arms.
WE DEFEND CAPITALISM
We start by defending capitalism. Most folks today will define "capitalist" in derogatory terms, as a rich individual with capital to invest. But if you look at the definition of capitalism then the real meaning of "capitalist" becomes evident. Capitalism is defined as "privately owned means of production operated for profit in competitive markets". Based upon this definition it follows that anybody who owns the means of production and operates in competitive markets for profit by definition is a "capitalist".
If you own a pick-up truck and landscaping tools with which you provide lawn care for profit in a competitive market then you are a capitalist.
If you own a brain and a mouth with which you provide consulting advice for profit in a competitive market then you are a capitalist.
If you own a small factory with machine tools with which you sell precision machined metal parts for profit in a competitive market then you are a capitalist.
And yes, if you own a small fortune in cash, and invest this cash for profit in other businesses in a competitive market then you are a capitalist.
While a few capitalists may be rich individuals investing in trade and industry the vast majority of capitalists are working folks who own their own means of production and live or die based upon their efforts. You certainly do not need to be wealthy to be a capitalist. Capitalism is a celebration and expression of free enterprise and self reliance. Capitalism is the economic foundation of the United States of America and functions at it's best when it is unregulated and governed only by the competitive forces of a free and unfettered market.
Why are we making these distinctions and why do we want to reclaim the word "capitalist"? Because capitalism is under attack. A full frontal, brutal assault by forces in unions, government, the media and entertainment who are trying to drive America towards a European model of socialism. The fight for capitalism begins by understanding what it really is.
WE IMPLEMENT THE SECOND AMENDMENT
It's curious that the right to bear arms, a fundamental human right, a fundamental Constitutional right, is even open for debate - let alone subjected to some of the most restrictive covenants found in America today. There are many good folks out there fighting the good fight to defend the Second Amendment. Our focus here is to implement the Second Amendment - meaning our objective is to provide you with the best firearms training necessary to defend your life, your family and your business.
WHAT IS WARRIORS AND CAPITALISTS?

The folks contributing to Warriors and Capitalists include business owners, cops, gun enthusiasts, home schoolers, firearms instructors, retired special forces members and high threat security contractors and operators.
THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
All of us who contribute to Warriors and Capitalists are pretty stout individuals. As you might guess we can take a punch and deliver one if needed. This is an open forum where folks are able to express real feelings in real time without the need for grammar teachers, copy editors or politically correct PR flacks filtering the contributions.
We deal with intense topics and at times contributors may post things that they later regret. We encourage full throttle exchanges and in doing so acknowledge that when this happens all contributors have the right to "walk back" a comment - meaning they publicly withdraw the statement, acknowledge it was made in error and apologize to those offended.
"Full throttle exchanges" is not a license for uncivilized, rude or boorish behavior. It's ok to attack plans, logic, rationale or position - but do not attack the man or the woman holding the position. Nor do we tolerate trolls or sock puppets. You'll simply be banned and your comments deleted.
Spelling doesn't count. Nor does grammar. If your measure of a man is diminished because he uses a split infinitive then you'll be happier elsewhere. We encourage contributors to write the way they talk, and since we are all warriors and capitalists, and not english professors, our use of the english language can and will be quite tart.
Last and most importantly, while we may passionately disagree with the direction America is taking, nothing, absolutely nothing that we say or post here should be construed as encouraging or supporting illegal actions or activities.
