They are enemies of the state!

"We will not conduct warrentless searches" YEAH RIGHT!

These are the same people that have been supporting the unconditional DRUG WAR! They LOVE illegal searches.

PHONY LIARS!

Right-wing THUGS. Fire them!

1. One of their points seems a little crazy
...namely number five, "We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty", only because I can't believe any state's seriously considering seceding from the union.

But the others are constitutional issues that we'd hope our law enforcement and military would take seriously, no matter who's in office. (Provided that they're not doing something stupid like enabling convicted felons to keep firearms, in which case they should be fired for not doing their damned jobs...)

Only other criticism I'd make is their timing -- obviously to sane people, we're not slipping into tyranny because a Democrat is president. And where were they during the Bush years?

3. Point five is about Texas, most likely
They probably have a lot of Lone Star Oathkeepers who want to create a Muslim-Judeo-Mexi-and LGBTQrein Texas Christian Caliphate, with Dubyese as the official language.

4. Gathering of Eagles?
What a laugh! More like the Gathering of Ostriches.

5. Oh, the group "gatheringsofeagles.org"
For a second there I thought you meant flocks of large, predatory birds swarmed around them.

6. This is a crypto-fascist right wing group that hates liberals and taxes.

In other words, it's another crypto-fascist right wing front.
