I talked to a cop for a long time last night about Oath Keepers

And about the War on Drugs.(At 4 in the morning in a casino haha)

He was very friendly and supports marijuana legalization and the right for civilians to bear arms, but was still adamantly opposed to legalizing other drugs. I tried my best to joke with him and to challenge his viewpoint and he played along but didn't budge.

He did promise to look into Oath Keepers, which I hope he follows up on.

The ones

I have talked to about it are very friendly and take their oaths seriously.

They believe you should have a right to carry a rifle or pistol?

Not in my town.

If you have a CHL they will still harass you if they see it.

They are nothing more than terrorists in this respect, demanding a permit to exercise a constitutional right.

And even then you might get hauled in for a 24 hour psych evaluation and get your house searched out of the deal.

Cops are not nice, they are a threat to Liberty.

What justifies the sarcasm?

What justifies the sarcasm?

Probably because most -if not

Probably because most -if not all- people who are not awake do not perceive a distinction between the Constitution and the Government. If they don't see the distinction, they could very well claim to uphold their oathes and they will, but they will be Preserving, Protection, and Defending the Government and not the Constitution; however, since they usually don't see a difference between the two they would think that they would be doing exactly what their oath says.

thanks for your faith in the citizens of America.

As a staff sergeant in the US Army who to this day has his car mounted with several Ron Paul campaign magnets, I would back the constitution any day. You must be too shy to talk to soldiers or police officers.

I know what I know from

I know what I know from talking with Marines because my friend was a Marine, and I would visit him when he was Stationed at 29-Palms. Most of the people at the base that I met, and that my freind talked to about their oaths did not recognize the distiction between the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. Government.

Also, A cop in my area last year shot a 21 year old to death, while the kid was handcuffed with his hands behind his back and the kid was lieing on the ground. The ADA said that it was a justifiable shooting because the kid was kicking at the 3 officers. Even though each of the 3 oficers had tazers, mace, and the fact that there was 3 of them and they were all bigger than the kid, it was still called a justifiable shooting.

While you may know the distiction between the US Constitution and the US Government, I could almost garuantee that the vast majority in the Military as well as those in Law Enforcement do not recognise a distiction.

It's all about talking to people

As we are all human beings. I watched the debates this campaign season with my friends fiance who is a cop and together we cheered Ron Paul on. He's not a bad guy. There are good cops and bad cops, just like there are good people and bad people.
