Several years ago I considered joining the John Birch Society. But after reading some of thier literature they seemed a bit far out for me. Just my impressions. Anyone here a member?

I was a member for many years and hosted a chapter at my office.

Lots of talk and letter writing. We all know what the Congressman and Senators do with letters.......

But for the most part I agree with 95% of what the JBS advocates.
I DO AGREE with with their "Get the U.N. out of the U.S.!" as well as "Get the U.S. out of the U.N.!"

I HIGHLY recommend their magazine "The New American"! http://www.thenewamerican.com/

Edited to add: At least that was the general wisdom in the military many years ago.



Memebership in the John Birch Society = no clearance, ever.

Those guys have their tinfoil beanies on WAY too tight, and double layers to boot. I just tape mine on for quick removal, and only one layer!

As opposed to the tyrannical democrat he was? He wasn't right-wing.

some JBers once spoke at a republican function I was attending; they claimed that Newt Gingrich, Tom Brokow, and Bill Clinton were all involved in a conspiracy to have the UN take over the US. yeah, right....

"I'm a faithful follower of Brother John Birch
And I belong to the Antioch Baptist Church.
And I aint even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!"

They actually used to come to my High School to recruit... but then, it was a sort of redneck school

Don't they advocate the use of wooden outhouses? Oh wait--that's the Birch John Society....

I had a membership for a year and didn't renew for the same reasons campy explained in his post. Way out in right field, sorry John Birch
