Oath Keepers

I don't know if you all are aware of it, but there are many (and increasingly more, I think...) active duty military, veterans, and peace officers who take the oaths they swore very seriously:

Oath Keepers
(From the site) "Oath Keepers: Military, Veterans, and peace officers who will honor their oaths to defend the Constitution, will NOT 'just follow orders,' will stand for liberty, and will save the Republic, so help us God."

You should pay particular attention to their "Declaration of Orders We Will NOT Obey."

  1. There are more and more of these people appearing, and becoming more and more vocal.

    I wonder if the current administration is paying attention to this - or just assuming in their arrogance that everyone will just obey anything because "they won".

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
