I am really glad to see this organization. I think they are doing important work on educating police and military about the constitution and their obligation to refuse to obey illegal orders.

Here is a good interview about organizing a military stand down against NDAA.

This is not an oath, this is public law. It is against the law for the President to use the military for any of these actions in this oath. Very daring to stand up for what is the existing law. On the other hand, the governor is allowed to use the National Guard for these actions and they do it all the time.

Yeah sure. During the 8 years of Bush they were "sleeping".

Mostly, they like to play with guns out in the woods.
