Oath Keepers

I'm pretty dismayed by the things that I see going on in this country. But this morning I became aware of something that gives me hope. It is the Oathkeepers. These folks obviously take their oath seriously and that oath says that they will protect us from enemies both foreign and domestic.

It's hard for me to even conceive of discussing the possibility of domestic enemies. But, I think there is a real threat to our freedom brewing. As I look at the view out my window I pray for all of us.

The View

For those that do not know, Oathkeepers are both police officers
and military members who have reaffirmed their oath to
uphold the U.S. Constitution, and who have taken a solemn
oath that they will not follow orders to turn on the
American people.

This is their oath...

The Oath

1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people

3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control."

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.

10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

And the "Three Percenters" are police officers and soldiers
who have decided they will draw a line in the sand here
and now, against any further moves against the 2nd Amendment
and any move to confiscate guns from law abiding Americans.

They symbolically represent the 3% of American colonists
who actually stood up and fought against the Kings tyranny
during the American Revolution...

Thank you for the kind and encouarging words that we give you hope! We're not fringe militia crazies. Most of us are very highly tarined military and Law Enforcement and we're some of the most patriotic Americans you will ever find.
