Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."

Oath Keepers


"On my honor, I will never betray
my badge, my integrity, my
character or the public trust. I
will always have the courage to
hold myself and others
accountable for our actions. I will
always uphold the Constitution,
my community, and the agency I
serve."


It's been a lot of years, and while I don't remember exactly what the words were to the oath I took when I became a police officer, I'm sure they were something like these.
A friend of mine told me about a blog site called Oath Keepers so I checked it out. What I found was a group of current and former military and law enforcement officers who have never forgotten the oath they took. That oath was to preserve the constitution that those who came before us gave everything to draft and defend. I found it interesting that their loyalty was not necessarily to the government, but to our founding documents and the people and freedoms that they represent. They are non-partisan and make it very clear that there have been unconstitutional decisions that have been made by both parties that they will refuse to uphold or defend.

As a matter of fact, here is a list:
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.

Obviously, this pre-Marxist administration is making a lot of Patriots nervous and I am glad to see organizations such as this spring up. Over 200 years ago, farmers, shoemakers, blacksmiths, doctors, and ordinary people from all walks of life saw that line of red coats come over the hill. They had a decision to make, become subjects of the Crown or grab their muskets and either live free or die. Most of them chose to fight, and many of them died doing so.

I believe that the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and our very Constitution was written with the blood of those who gave everything so that we could enjoy the liberties we hold dear. My blood is no more or less vauable than their's was and I intend to honor my oath as well.

I have included the link in my list on the left. Check them out.
