Skip to comments.Taking an Oath
Posted on 03/20/2010 3:02:58 PM PDT by The Watcher
Ok, I've started a site, one where I have publicly taken an oath to preserve and defend the Constitution. Against all threats, and even if it means personal loss or even targeting by those who would be our kings-by-right. Will you join me? We have a forum to discuss, and a blog to read and to publicly affirm an oath to the Constitution. I hope in the immediate future, to finalize the software so that the publicly taken oath is a database, searchable and displayable by name and location.
Sounds something like Oath Keepers . . . .
Uhh . . . . where is it?

Sorry if you didn’t notice. The link is the “source”.
This is not the sites you listed. This is not an organization. This is a PUBLIC STATEMENT of what you will do. Nothing more and nothing less. It contains a forum to discuss things if you want.
Organizations hold rallies, need money and consume your time. And never would I discourage anyone from joining. This isn’t that.
You like the Oath Keepers?
They seem fine to me. But millions of us have taken no oath other than the Pledge of Allegiance, since we have never served in our military or government. This is simply a way to publicly state.. “If you’re going to start looking for patriots to be afraid of, WE ARE HERE AND READY FOR YOU!”
I took an oath to protect and defend when I joined the Navy. I feel I am still bound by it.
I think your blog is good.
I know someone who joined the Oath Keepers and he is not current or former military, LEO or fireman. They seem to have a category for civilian Oath Keeper and treat them alike as far as I can tell. They just vet people for a few weeks. I am sure they do not want want people sneaking in who are not conservative just to be agent provocateurs etc.
The "Show Me's" are getting ready!!!!
Thunder!!!! DON'T MESS WITH MISSOURI
The natives are getting restless...

I would imagine that it's strategically located between Columbia and St. Louis and/or Columbia and Kansas City ?
Looks like things are heating up across this country.
The 'sleeping giant' has started to awake!! LOOK OUT!!! The party on THE HILL is just about over!!!!!
I’d just point out, that many people have already taken an oath.
Every member of congress, hell, even the Post Office made me raise my right hand.
As a joke, when I was done with jury duty, I asked the Judge “Um.. don’t you have to swear us out, too? I might have to lie to my wife..” (rimshot) Jokes aside, technically millions of Americans don’t have to be sworn in to begin with if the premise is sound to begin with. Just call it or, provide another choice for a re-affirmation of the oath, etc.. &c &c..
If 50 million pitchfolks flew out of the stores over the next six months and started showing up at rallies, it would be pretty funny.
BTTT for post and thread.
Against all enemies, foreign and domestic is a given for me.
How does one know, if they are a pitchfork guy, or a kerosene combustible torch guy? It’s a tough call.
You do have two arms don’t you?
I'm thinking a proper pitchfork would have a loooong handle with just enough tines to securely hold an effigy head.
I’d be wary of that sort of thing.
Remember in the 60s, the story went something like “speed kills” and “ the guy who wants to know where the dynamite is, he’s FBI”.
Oaths? Oaths? We don’t need no steenking oaths. Seriously, what real purpose does it serve, if you’re a private citizen?
We don’t need you, either.
You forgot to answer the question.
Look, there are some things which are, as the founding fathers said “Self evident”. If you do not understand why you’d publicly make an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, or why you’d publicly take a stand to defy a runaway government and work without ceasing to restore it to it’s proper borders, then I can’t explain it to you in a posting here. In fact, if you see no value in it, then please join the KosKidz in thier destruction of our nation - where you can at least be honest about what you think and that you place no value on those old fashioned ideas and ideals that are worth fighting and dying to preserve in the character of our nation. Now, if as I suspect, you’re asking because the real meaning of your question is “What’s in it for me?”, the answer is “absolutely nothing”. In fact, it’s going to mean YOU are the target of the haters and the tyrants. And like the signers of the Declaration of Independence, you are marking yourself, by your own hand, as the object of their violence and malevolence. It could cost you very much. No, there’s nothing “in it” for you, other than to reaffirm to yourself, what it is you really believe, and whether you’re willing to fight for it.
That's the point. I know what I believe and I don't have to "reaffirm" my beliefs to myself. That's loony.
