I have been asked by several individuals to head up a new project in defense of our God-given, natural rights.
This is the official, and public statement, that I will be accepting this charge.
I am humbled to be trusted with this, and pray that God will give me the ability and strength to serve this nation well.
I have been feeling this opposition to the Constitution from our government for a long time. I never thought I would see the rise of tyranny in my lifetime, but it is happening.
I took an oath eleven years ago to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and it is because of this oath I must act.
We will begin tactical training as soon as we can start meeting. It will start from the very basics and advance from that point. It should be noted that this is for defensive action only. The only offensive actions we will take as of now is through lawful channels, unless this government continues to infringe on these rights.
We will train to protect what is ours from God, but continue in petitioning this government to turn back from this dangerous path. As a Boy Scout we were always taught to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst, so that is the intent of this force.
We will stand ready if the government moves on the people, and become experts in our field as citizen soldiers while fighting the legal front for our rights. We have come to the tipping point.
We are in 1774 and this government will decide the course, but as a free people, we will not give our ground; this is our land, our country. Our nation’s Declaration of Independence states that we have inalienable rights, rights this current form of government steps on.
I do not wish to fight, but if one is to be had, I will not go quietly into the night. I will stand for what is right. I will uphold my oath. I ask any patriots who are in the area, and wish to join me in this, to please contact me.
You will be held to a high standard; you will swear before God to defend the Constitution; and you will be asked to fight back against tyrants. I cannot guarantee the outcome. But there is no more noble a cause than to stand against oppression.
May God see us through. Numquam cede, Libertatem aut mors.
