NOTE: The Clark County [Nevada] Republican Party was "taken over," last year by constitutionalists - a grass-roots coalition of Tea Party people, 912 people, Ron Paul Republicans, independents, and just plain patriotic Americans, many of them new to politics. They "took it over" from old guard party loyalists who had, in the past, supported unquestioningly oath- breaking politicians, and supported all manner of vile unconstitutional laws and actions by party leaders and office holders. Now it is in the hands of sincere grass-roots constitutionalists. So, when Stewart was invited to speak to the Clark County Republican Party at their last meeting, he did so not because he is a Republican, but because they are Americans.

Thanks, folks.

As he said [previous speaker, Travis Barrick, candidate for Nevada Attorney General], it is going to take time.

The Marxists have done what they call a "long march" through the institutions. Ever hear that phrase? When they figured out they couldn't have an instant revolution in America during World War I, then they proceeded on a long march. They have successfully marched through almost all of our institutions: academia, government, the law, you name it - media, they have infiltrated.

One of their goals was to capture one or both of the two major parties. They have been largely successful. They certainly have captured the Democratic Party. Now, it is an open question, in my mind, as to whether they have captured the Republican Party. For I have seen Republicans, over the last decade in particular, and long before that, who have acted more like Democrats or like socialists than like constitutionalists. That's why we are here, right now.

If we are to pull our country back from the brink, right now, all of you must make a decision of what you are. Are you Republicans only? Or are you constitutionalists first?

How many here have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic? When you swore that oath, what did it mean to you? Were you willing to give your life? Are you still willing to give your life? Does it ever expire? You are still bound by that Oath. When you vote for an oath-breaker, someone you know is not going to follow the Constitution, what does that make you?

It is enough of compromise, it is enough of being willing to sacrifice the Bill of Rights on the alter of expediency, on the alter of political correctness, or on the alter of safety. Liberty comes first.

When I served as a paratrooper, I swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I did not swear to simply obey the commands of anyone who happened to be in the White House or anyone who happened to be over me as an officer. I swore to defend the Constitution. My first duty is that. It says nothing in there about safety. Liberty is not safe. It is fool's gold to seek safety first over liberty. What did Benjamin Franklin say it was? "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." That's the bottom line.

So, why did I start Oath Keepers? I started this organization to buy you more time. As Travis said, "it is going to take more time to reestablish this Republic." This next election will hopefully be a good start, by kicking all the bums out, frankly. Any oath-breaker, I don't care what party they are in.

To buy you some time, I decided to go and talk to - reach out to and talk to - my brothers who are still in service - police, military, firefighters -, all who swore that oath. Now why would I go talk to them? Because they still have honor! The politicians don't have honor, by and large. I have been to D.C. [and worked there], I went to law school, I have clerked for the Arizona Supreme Court, I have seen up close what they do.

It is like watching sausage being made, you don't want to see that personally. But, what I saw is, by and large, the political class in this country and the legal class, the legal elites, all of them, willfully violating the Constitution almost every day. They have utter contempt for it. They have no honor, no integrity. They know what they are doing. They have knowledge, they know the Constitution. They are doing it willfully. So I focus on those who still have courage, who still have honor.

But I have to make sure they have the knowledge, because courage and honor without knowledge is not enough. They are kept intentionally ignorant. All of us were in public school. Were you taught your heritage in public school? Were you taught your history? Were you taught the Constitution?
