College Student Writes Paper On Oath Keepers




Elias Alias note: One of our more active Texas chapter members has a daughter in college.  He has sent in a copy of a class paper written by his daughter, which received excellent marks from her professor. I want to acknowledge her paper here at Oath Keepers’ national website and salute her father for raising an outstanding and patriotic daughter. I have withheld the names of both father and daughter, pending permissions. Enjoy -

Stewart Rhodes founder and president of the nonprofit organization Oath Keepers has dedicated his life to the Constitution of the United States. His extensive knowledge on the Constitution has led him all across the country educating the American people about the Constitution and what it really means.

Oath Keepers and its members is an organization dedicated to educating the American people about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and how our members of congress took an Oath to defend and protect them. “We are Not advocating or promoting the overthrow of any government whether local, state or national. We want our governments to return to the Constitutional Republic which the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution defined and instituted,” (Gooch). The Oath Keepers are not right winged or left winged, they just support and vote for the people who are loyal to the Constitution. Most of the members of Oath Keepers are of the military, law enforcement, and firefighters but openly welcome other members. All they ask is for you to help them in the fight to educate people more about the Constitution, before going to the polls, other than just the basics that are taught in the schools.

Although Oath Keepers are not the traditional political organization in which they support one side or the other, they are political in that they support the Constitution which states who get what, when, and how and anyone who violates that for their own selfish gain or any other reason is going against the Constitution and therefore going against what America is all about.

Most, if not all, the sponsors of Oath Keepers are in some way involved or related the military, law enforcement, or firefighters, such as: Solder Assist- care packages for all deployed military personnel, Tactical Graphic Design- Visual Communication Specialties, SWAT Magazine- Stewart Rhodes writes a column (Enemy at the Gate), Rat Cutlery- Knives and Survival Gear, Pro Troop Events- Calendar for Pro Troop Events, Liberty Rider- a cross country bicycle ride promoting the value of Liberty, Gathering of Eagles- Defending the Liberty our servicemen have fought to protect, JPFO- Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership, Sheldon Law Firm- Military Law and Litigation. I believe that the reason that all the sponsors have to do with military, law enforcement, and firefighting is people they understand what it really means to take an oath to protect the Constitution, but they want others to understand what it means as well.

My father is a very active member of this particular organization and I’ve actually met Stewart Rhodes and in reading what they are all about and talking to him I believe it to be a valuable site and information because everything that they stand for can be summed up in one word Constitution. As an American citizen I hold the Constitution to be true, firm, and right. It’s not biased because they support all members of Congress who uphold the Constitution and stay true to their oath. For someone who doesn’t really know the Constitution their efforts may seem extreme, but they took an oath to defend it and will use whatever lawful mean necessary to protect it and they believe others should do so as well, so we Americans don’t lose our freedom. The website can help with this because it aids in educating the public about the Constitution and the laws that are a being made and have been made that violate the Constitution.

    I would very much want to thank Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes for his stance on what I believe to be some of the best written words EVER put to paper since our Lord came to this earth nearly 2000 years ago. 1776 1787 1789 1812 1863 1963 1989 . The declaration of Independence and constitution bill of rights have inspired men to die for it. Today I believe that there is a new wave of freedom blowing across this land and that a government of the people, by the people and for the people WILL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH!! !! I too learned the constitution in Boonville IN where our 16th president learned the constitution before moving West and later ran and won the after numerous loses in IL then went on to win the White House! Til the day I die I will be devoted to learning every word and recite the words accurately. Mr Romney forgot to mention unalienable rights when he inaccurately invoked the the writing on the wall at the last debate while Mr Obama said nothing of 10 years of study of the writing on the wall. Divine Providence once again will be invoked by myself and EVERY FREEDOM MAN like Mr. Reagan said January 11, 1989. We the people tell the government what to do and not the other way around. Thank God Almighty for article II SECTION 1 clause 5 of the constitution and that attorney general John Jay advised our 1St president of this great republic to add it in our founding documents!! Let the freedom bell ring until the day that our Lord comes to take us who believe home! The big house in the sky! I believe it will!!!!! General bDavid life time Oathkeeper of the US Constitution and may the God of the universe bless the United States of America one nation under God Almighty!
