Gentlemen & Ladies,
I have followed with gut wrenching anguish this unfolding murderous saga that the federal government, FBI and BLM are perpetrating upon the citizens and the defenders of liberty in Oregon. Many of you have told me, directly or via Facebook that we need to do something … anything. Oregon, the area where this is taking place is over 2500 miles from here … driving or trying to get involved at this stage or flying out there would be a mission without any possibility of success. So, what are we to do? We have sworn to uphold, defend and protect the U.S Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
In the first place, the Constitution does not even allow the federal government to own property outside of the confines of D.C and the ports … necessary for commerce per clearly stated directives in that document. In reality, the BLM and the actions of the federal agents are without legal basis and are clear violations of the law. The federal government has trumped our Constitution by bullying, withholding tax dollars (the irony here is they collect all that money from us) and offering our money back to us as a bribe for grants, projects, roads, bridges etc. The government is consuming us … bite by bite … we see their illegal acts occur in the west because they have illegally seized most of the western states and hold it in “trust” for the citizens of this nation! If we owned that land … try and build a house on that preserve or on any of the hundreds of millions of acres they “possess” … good luck.
So, I am back to the original question. What can we do? Our organization needs manpower/woman power. Our numbers need to dramatically expand. The CPT units we have are very capable but they are too few. Our chapters … like our CPT units are also too few. So, if you want to do something to enable us to be that force for good … “RECRUIT”! We need CPT units in every county in this state … in fact we need more than one in most counties. We need to organize Pa Oath Keeper chapters in every county.
Gentlemen, talk is cheap but actions speak volumes. It is better to face an enemy on equal footing, with strength, courage and the firm conviction that we are defending that sacred document. We must follow in the footsteps of our forebears who fought that Revolutionary war that gave us this nation. They risked all. Can we do any less? We either grow to a force to be reckoned with or we remain just a thorn in the side of those who continuously take our “God” Given Rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
We have a lot of work to do and very little time to do it in. Remember Lavoy Finicum, a loving father, a Christian and a man devoted to the cause of liberty … murdered in “cold” blood for standing up for what he and all of us believe in!
May God Almighty direct us in the most pure and correct path in these difficult times we face. May he give us courage in the face of adversity, wisdom to know when to stand against tyranny and the knowledge necessary to protect our families, our communities, our state and our nation!
