    Oath Keepers, the military and police organization that was formed earlier this year and held its April muster on Lexington Green, may be a particularly worrisome example of the Patriot revival.

    With the Oath keepers or the souther poverty law center

    Oath Keepers, the military and police organization that was formed earlier this year and held its April muster on Lexington Green, may be a particularly worrisome example of the Patriot revival. Members vow to fulfill the oaths to the Constitution that they swore while in the military or law enforcement. "Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders," the group says. Oath Keepers lists 10 orders its members won't obey, including two that reference U.S. concentration camps.

    Too bad #2 has been broken in the past, and as for #3....it would have made maintaining order in New Orleans difficult after Katrina.

    And as for #10...let us remember that and support it in any protests in the future ala Kent State.

    If an American citizen chooses to be an enemy combatant against the people of the United States then in my humble but accurate opinion they have ceded their rights and should be treated as such, so I technically disagree with #2
    If I remember correctly #3 was locally instituted and not state wide, a distinct difference although under state law I believe the Governor has the right to declare marshal law statewide if the situation so requires.

    Can you cite an example of rule number two being broken?

    As for number ten, the key word here is "peaceably".

    And "a la" Pittsburgh G-20, where patriots chanting "USA! USA! USA!" and "Don't destroy our Constitution!" were blasted with sound waves, and then encircled and chased down with batons because they wanted to assemble in peaceful protest.

    When our police forces label vocal patriotic Americans as unlawful demonstrators (or even domestic terrorists), our freedom to assemble and to speak has already been lost. Most people don't realize it because they haven't gone out in public and become vocal about the issues. Try that and you'll soon learn how free you truly are.
