Do commitments mean anything anymore? Too often we say things like “I promise”, “I love you”, and “Yeah, sure” without giving any thought to what that means and what cost might be associated with fulfilling the meaning of these words. The evidence of this is all around us and something has to change.
**Disclaimer: political thoughts below**
It is for this reason that I was at first interested in checking out, and am now a full member of, an organization that seeks to remind those that have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America of what that oath, and the document that the oath is stated to defend, really means.
Whether or not you have ever taken the oath as a public servant or defender, I would encourage you to look at this organization if you value the Constitutional freedoms and responsibilities that are granted to those citizens of the United States of America. See if it lines up with your thoughts. If it does, we would love to have you join with us.
About Oath Keepers
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.
Oath Keepers reaches out to both current serving and veterans to remind them of their oaths, to teach them more about the Constitution they swore to defend, and to inspire them to defend it.
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”
