I'm a little concerned that folks are forgetting the true meaning of Memorial Day.  It seems like a lot of attention is being focused on the living veterans and soldiers.  Even the President, in his weekly address, seemed more concerned with writing letters, shaking hands, or saying thank you to those serving.  Come on folks... don't forget to thank a veteran; but this weekend, whisper a prayer of thanks to those that gave their all for this great Nation, visit a cemetery and place a flag or flower by their headstone.

There's another holiday that honors the living soldier.

It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag, 
Who serves beneath the flag, 
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, 
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag

The Constitution just protects the rights.

No the constitution declared our rights which were given by God.  The soldiers defend and protect those rights!

No, the original wording of the US Constitution did not mention rights... so the Bill of Rights (amendments) were added.

If you read the Ninth, 'The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.'

You'll note that your rights are not limited to only those stated (enumerated) within the US Constitution.

You'll also note that the soldiers do not protect those rights... they swear to protect the US Constitution.

I pray that our soldiers, police, sheriffs, militia, jurors, judges and elected representatives  learn and study our Constitution. That they remember the oaths they took:  that is their job to protect and defend it. That they recognize when orders they are given are in violation of that Constitution, and at such times, that they choose the Constitution over all the enemies of it, foreign or domestic.

God bless all of them that do.

           To put it simply is to give an analogy relative to the animal kingdom . In this scenario there are 2 groups . Sheep and the sheepdogs that protect them .People usually know which group they are in .

I would direct any soldier, policeman, guardsman,  veteran, anyone who swears an oath to our Constitution, to go and check out and join those who are reaffirming their oaths to protect and uphold the Constitution.

http://oathkeepers.org/oath/

Share this with your soldiers. There are domestic enemies of our Constitution making plans for its' demise right now. We need all of our servicemen to be made aware of this now and to  remain loyal to their oaths.

The Oathkeeper's pledge:

 

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.

Our previous president came extremely close to breaking at least two of the oaths.

That is because some of them are actually based on the US Constitution...

#1 is a situational provision.

#2 The 4th does not require a warrant, if 'probable cause' exists.

#3 US citizens would be held on charges of treason under Art. 3 Sect. 3.

#4/6/7/8 would be Art. 4 Sect. 4.

#5 would be a violation of Article 6 and 4 Sect. 4. - A State must chose to be in or out of the Union... and receives no quarter or protection under the Constitution should it secede from the Union.

#9 again is a situational provision.

#10 is not an executive function, simply a restriction on federal legislative authority.
