If you are going to defend the Constitution, then you can't ignore the parts you don't like, you have to embrace the whole thing.
That's the thing, they're not ignoring the parts they don't like, they are vowing to uphold it.
I'm not going to list all of the the orders they will not follow, two should be sufficient.
1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
That would be upholding the constitution, not ignoring it.......
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
BTW the SCOTUS has already ruled on this one, and they say that the 2nd amendment pertains to every American citizen.
2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects -- such as
warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons.
This also would be upholding the constitution......
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The SCOTUS could not possibly keep up with all the cases of unconstitutional things being done by this government, it has gotten so far out of control
that it would be a complete waste of time.
Just don't vow to take up arms against the United States Government just because you lost an election and you think you are being dudded. That is
unAmerican, bordering on sedition, and if you act on it, it is Treason.
I can't speak for the Oath Keepers, but i haven't vowed to take up arms against anyone. On my part it has nothing to do with losing an election, I
haven't had an election end with the candidate i voted for win in over twelve years. This is Not
about Obama, it's about an out of control
government. Obama didn't pass the damn patriot act, but he hasn't gotten rid of it either, he didn't bail out the banks against the people's
wishes, but he hasn' t done anything about that either, he's added to it, he hasn't brought our troops home, etc. He's not responsible for all
that has gone wrong with this country, but he's catching flack because instead of changing it, he's adding to it.
Many people don't think it un- American to get rid of an out of control government, they think it's their right and duty. It's only sedition if the
government is acting lawfully, anything they do in direct violation of the constitution is unlawful. I guess if there ever was a revolt (which i
highly doubt) the act of treason would be determined by the victor.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and
Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open
Emphasis mine. There are many that do not view the act of outing an unjust and out of control government as waging war against the United States.
We could continue to go back and forth like this, but it's pointless as neither one of us seem likely to agree on this subject, so let's just agree
