Oath Keepers

This is a repost from The Patriot Page.

Americans Will Not Be Standing Alone

Oath Keepers-Guardians of the Republic is a webblog devoted to reminding current militatry members, vets, and members of law enforcement that their oath is to the Constitution of the United States, not to the politicians.

Oath Keepers mission statement reads;

Oath Keepers is an association of currently serving military, veterans, and peace officers who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.

Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.

We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders."
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”

If you, the American people, are forced to once again fight for your liberty in another American Revolution, you will not be alone. We will stand with you.

There is at this time a debate within the ranks of the military regarding their oath. Some mistakenly believe they must follow any order the President issues. But you can rest assured that many others in the military do understand that their loyalty is to the Constitution, and understand what that means.

The mission of Oath Keepers is to vastly increase their numbers. We are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our own troops. To win that battle, Oath Keepers will use written and video testimony of active duty military, veterans (especially combat vets), and peace officers to reach, teach, and inspire our brothers in arms in the military and police to fulfill their oaths and stand as guardians of the Republic.

If you are currently in the military, are a veteran, or are a peace officer, please submit your written and/or video testimony on your oath, so you can help us win that battle for hearts and minds. Your submission may be anonymous.

Guardians of the Republic, fulfill your oath. Join us.

This is what real patriotism is all about, standing up for what is right. Thank God that, thanks to these patriots, Americans will not be standing alone.

"I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

The words, "that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" are the first order. This is borne out by the words which follow immediately thereafter, "that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same". When the orders of the President, or the commanding officers are in comflict with the 'first order' then the 'first order' takes precedence. The President of the United States is not the Pope. The Constitution, which was written by the people, define his office and set the limits thereof. He works for us, as do all of our elected officials. When those whom 'we the people' have elected, violate the perameters which we the people have set for them, they forfeit their authority. Savvy?
