|The wordings of the current oath of enlistment and oath for commissioned officers are as follows:”I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).”I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.” (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
During the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress established different oaths for the enlisted men and officers of the Continental Army:
Enlisted: The first oath, voted on 14 June 1775 as part of the act creating the Continental Army, read: “I _____ have, this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as a soldier, in the American continental army, for one year, unless sooner discharged: And I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as are, or shall be, established for the government of the said Army.” The original wording was effectively replaced by Section 3, Article 1, of the Articles of War approved by Congress on 20 September 1776, which specified that the oath of enlistment read: “I _____ swear (or affirm as the case may be) to be trued to the United States of America, and to serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies opposers whatsoever; and to observe and obey the orders of the Continental Congress, and the orders of the Generals and officers set over me by them.” Continue reading

Like John Steward, but not as nearly as funny, I believe humor brings the darkness to light. The below is not meant to insult anyone in any form, but only to enlighten you to how crazy OUR government is being. Fear is the tool that has been used against man for eons, this period is no different. Every common sense person who has traveled this great land knows you can’t stop the attacks. You can be self reliant. You can be aware of your environment. You can work within your community to make it better. Ask yourself, “Who determines, who are terrorist.” I hope you enjoy, and it works best if you have a redneck voice while you read the lines.
You Might be a Terrorist if?
If you got the gall dang nerve to think the constitution is better than the government, you might be a terrorist— sovereign citizen movement Continue reading
