Rhodes eventually wants to create a legal defense fund for Oath Keepers who are disciplined by their employers for defying orders they deem unlawful or immoral.

That's one of the biggest problems IMO.
An element that is ingrained into every part of society and government but is intent on working against the populace is hard to identify as it sounds like pretty much the average public servant.

You mean you have alot of built up rage and you want an excuse to be violent?
If you want to fight against an idea, you better start now. There are all types of tools at your disposal. Voting comes to mind. Getting publicity to the leaders you want in office. Ever tried that? Or is that not violent enough of a revolution?

And that is exactly why they made a Constitution and a form of government that is able to change if the people wish it.
The constitution and form of government we originally had is gone, and those in office have known this for a long while now.
Do you not see how compromised and beyond correct function and application it is?
Oath Keepers, to actually be in a position to choose to uphold their oath means that our streets are already in chaos and military action is being ordered against the population, at that time there is no reset button, no pause button, and the choices are real and permanent.
This is a committment to the citizens, to you and your family and friends.
How can this even be discussed in the negative?
The climate is ripe for a third party?,
It will never happen, the opportunity is perfect for a final strike against our way of life from the inside, but all of the pieces lining up like they are is just an illusion or the overactive conspiracy thinking paranoid mind at work.....right?

Let's remember problem-reaction-solution...if these oath keepers get a taste of power, why are they less likely to be corrupted than any other group of patriots-types? What if they are a set up? One thing I have learned from watching this country and world history is it is best to trust no one, judge by deeds not rhetoric.
For now it's all just hot air. Let's see them in action.

Launched in March by Las Vegan Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers bills itself as a nonpartisan group of current and retired law enforcement and military personnel who vow to fulfill their oaths to the Constitution.
More specifically, the group's members, which number in the thousands, pledge to disobey orders they deem unlawful, including directives to disarm the American people and to blockade American cities.
What is so hard to understand, It's simply a group of present and ex military personell and present and ex LEO's that are going to honor the oath that they took.
They aren't going to "round up" anybody, they're simply going to keep true to their oath.
Isn't that what the military is suppossed to do, defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic ?!
Why try to demonize a group of people that are pledging to be honorable ?!
