“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter”.
- Reverend Martin Luther King
In July of 1987, I remember standing in a room full of my fellow cohorts, all of us were equal parts of nervous & thrilled for what we were about to experience. We all raised our right hand, and swore an oath to protect & defend the Constitution of the United States from enemies, both foreign & domestic. The shining look of grim determination on all our faces is a memory I will never forget. We spoke amongst ourselves and realized ideas such as honor and patriotism (which in today’s world is considered “un-fashionable”) was not only alive and well in that very room, we vowed to carry the torch of Liberty into the future.
Throughout my 12 years of military service, I decided it was time for me to leave my military career for greater horizons . Not for a changing of my priorities mind you, but it became more and more difficult to support the political leaders who directed the military. As I reflected on my oath of honor, the old adage became apparent to me; “you can take the man out of the Army, but you can’t take the Army out of the man”.
Fast forward to 2013, it has gone from difficult to impossible for me to offer my support to today’s political “leadership”…The America that I love & vowed to protect is swiftly fading into oblivion. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantee’s “We The People” have not only the Right to keep and bear arms, but more importantly, the obligation. The ugly reality is, our elected officials have been continually voting against the will of the people, while blatantly usurping the power away from America’s founding values.
Our Founding Fathers endowed ‘we the people’ with the specific responsibility of safeguarding the rights and freedoms guaranteed to us by the Constitution. As the current occupier of our White House travels the world bowing to world leaders while declaring “America is no longer a Christian Nation”, Obama (and his fellow political hacks) are running roughshod over our Constitution and steadily tearing down the foundations of our way of life that gave America her greatness.
“We The People” have seem to have forgotten (and have taken for granted) something extremely important. Whether or not our friends and family agree, Americans are on the verge of losing something very precious, our liberties. Considering the laundry list of treasonous acts perpetrated by the US government & the deafening silent response of the collective population is why I have chosen to exercise my Constitutional rights as an American citizen & form the Citizens Militia of Mississippi (CMM respectively).
Citizens Militia of Mississippi believe we have a duty and the moral obligation to uphold the same oath service members swear to. We owe the same allegiance to our children, families, communities AND to America. The time has come for Americans to stand up and remind our elected political officials SERVE THE PEOPLE, not the other way around. We must unite & rise up for the freedoms and rights our Constitution have bestowed upon us. We will no longer be silent to the tyranny destroying our great nation.
Knowing full well, groups such as Citizens Militia of Mississippi are being monitored by the wide spectrum of liberal funded legal organizations (you know who you are), I say this: The American people will NEVER SUBMIT TO TYRANNY. Republican and Democratic politicians who vote against their constituents for their own personal agenda$ should sit up and take note. Americans, in general, are both compassionate and peaceful peoples. However, when we are expected to go along with legislative decisions, made on our own behalf by those we elect, which purposely run contrary to our beliefs, push us beyond a logical and civilized breaking point, our wrath is swift & formidable. The American People will no longer be silent. Why? Because America was founded By the People and For The People. We will not stand idly by and watch elected officials shred our God given rights piece by piece.
God Bless America
