Everyone agrees the path we are on is unsustainable; and a growing number are aware that the reason is because the path we are on is increasingly diverging from the Constitution. One manifestation of this increasing awareness is the Tea Parties.
Some examples of unconstitutional government are: regulations, bailouts, gun bans, spying on Americans, Social Security, Medicaid, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, etc.
Divergence from the Constitution (other than through legitimate amendment) should not be possible. Right? For example, the President, the Congress, and the military all take oaths to uphold the Constitution. However, pretty much all of these individuals either don’t understand the Constitution, or simply don’t care.
Now considering that our government is unsustainable, the government will have to become increasingly fascist – without appearing overtly fascist – like it has been doing for at least the last 100 years. In fact the powers behind the rise in government seem to be aiming for a global version of unsustainable government. Of course, they don’t see it as unsustainable because sustainable to them simply means that they stay in power.
Unfortunately for the champions of global governance, the American people are simply not cooperating, and thus extreme measures may be necessary to achieve global governance.
The American people usually accept incremental increases in government out of ignorance and apathy, and they usually accept the occasional increase in government in reaction to a crisis, which all seemed fast enough for the global elites until now, but now they are faced with increasing public awareness (thank the Internet) and a potentially major shift back to individualism and the free market. Therefore, I fear a series of devastating crises will be used to institute major change.
Most likely, the government will (among other tactics) provoke a small population, say in Montana, who they can rely on to fight back, and then the government will escalate, and then the people will escalate (they’ll even be coming from Texas). Now this could go badly for the government because of video and the internet, but even if the government shuts down the internet, their plan could easily work because the so called “liberals” elsewhere will say “I don’t like that the government shut down the internet, but I don’t really know why, and I don’t really know what the government is doing; however, the one thing I do know with absolute certainty is that the people in Montana are a bunch of Glenn Beck watching racists who deserve whatever they get.”
Given that the American people are the last armed citizenry on Earth, and that we are not cooperating, then we must be disarmed so that progress towards global governance can move forward again without our being able to stop it. The champions of global governance cannot allow us to continue to be an example of the benefits of individualism and the free market. Their stealth strategy has stalled and is being exposed.
Unfortunately, once the last armed citizenry is disarmed, then the resulting fascist world government would not fall until it decayed from within – about 1000 years from now. If I were a religious person, I would probably believe this to be the 1000 year reign of Satan – but let’s not get sidetracked.
The government will have to rely on the US military to perform some pretty fascist actions both to provoke initial conflict as well as to ultimately disarm the people in reaction to such conflict. Of course, the American military would thus be violating the Constitution, which they took an oath to uphold.
If only the US military, law enforcement, etc. would also take a more specific oath to not obey a list of well defined unconstitutional orders, then such a code among the military and law enforcement just might be the deciding factor between a future of freedom and prosperity – or 1000 years of global fascism.
I would like to see every single military and law enforcement officer take the following oath to not obey certain unconstitutional orders. They could call themselves Oath Keepers for their determination to stand by their oath to uphold the Constitution:
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.
OK, you can unclench your sphincter now because Oath Keepers is already a reality and may be America’s last best hope, and America may be the world’s last best hope.
Oathkeepers: this has got to be the most passive-agressive "oath keeping" I have ever seen. They are doing nothing more than stating "I will not break THE LAW" gee thanks for confirming that! That is so nice to know!
When the "OathKeepers" are ready to finally keep their EXISTING OATH to protect this country from all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, let us know. Because right now, they are breaking their real oath while our Constitution is being ravaged.
In addition to simply not obeying unconstitutional orders, which is a huge step forward all by itself, it is true that the Oath taken by government personnel also includes the promise to defend the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. However, there is much room for ambiguity in that statement. I think the Oathkeepers are getting off to the right start.
I am an Oath Keeper. I personally know Stewart Rhodes, Founder of the Oath Keepers. Stewart is a former U.S. Army paratrooper and graduate of Yale Law School. Can you think of a better resume in these times? He is doing a heck of a job with limited resources. The Oath Keepers have just launched a national effort to recall and/or remove members of Congress who voted for NDAA Military Detention.
Great achievements in history have been accomplished by very small groups of brave individuals. Just look at their role in the Bible. Look at the founding of our country. There may come a day when a group of Oath Keepers stands down to the orders of a tyrant(s). This could easily be a THE turning point in the fight for liberty. Join the fight at oathkeepers.net.

What makes you all think that it's going to be the US military that disarms the American CITIZENS? NATO is the standing army for the United Nations. Why does the UN need an army? What's the purpose? I see blue helmets disarming the US army and citizens. Oathkeepers, or more like Gatekeepers, wont have to lay down their weapons, they'll be taken by force if not surrendered. Stewart Rhodes is a fraud and disceiver, join the fight? What fight?
