What do you think about Freedom's Guardians? That way we don't look offensive, as much as defensive. We're not looking for a fight, but if you want one, you should have thought about a different opponent.

As of right now I would say no to verification. Reason being, we are simply too small at the moment to have to worry about that.

I love this paragraph! I think it does a great job in capturing the very essence of the group. Let me know what you need from me.
