Marine Veteran: "pledging my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor"

I feel the true measure of a man or a woman is what is in their heart and how willing are they to act upon that. Taking an oath, or making a even a simple promise are key to the real value of someone. I have worked very hard to impress this upon my own sons, they know that when “Dad” gives his word, that is the way it will be PERIOD, and that I will not settle for anything less from them or from myself. I am very proud to say all 3 sons will be standing on those yellow foot prints at M.C.R.D. within a year.

I took my first oath during the 70's when I enlisted into the U.S.M.C., I was a teenager at the time, looking back I did not fully understand that oath's full meaning, that understanding came over time as I matured, my eyes opened to the real value of a mans word given, and to always carefully consider any oath or promises made. I am proud I took that oath, and ashamed that at times I was caught up with the typical right Vs. left argument that seems to consume most Americans that for a time I lost sight that I am an AMERICAN and not a Republican or a Democrat or anything else beyond that. If I stay true to my promises made and oaths taken I will always do what is best for my God and my country, so again I say for all to witness...

I, David Kale, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, pledging my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor. So help me, God.

We took an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution, no where does the Constitution allow the Government to take from one man and give it to another, I challenge my fellow Oath Keepers to send any and all stimulus monies given to them back to the Government, or donate it to a worth while charity, if we are going to keep our oath.. we first start by living it to the best of our ability, both my wife and myself have taken no stimulis checks, payments or monies.

Ladies and Gentleman, I leave you with this one ideal.. it is better to live and even die on your feet as a free man or woman, than it is live on your knees at the feet of a loving and caring master.

Best regards to my brothers and sisters who keep their oaths and promises,

David Kale


David will hopefully be speaking on behalf of Oath Keepers at both the Salt Lake City Tea Party and the Provo, Utah Tea Party (if he can arrange it schedule wise). Talk about doing double duty!

Thank you David for stepping up. We are fully confident that you will represent us with honor and spirit.

David stepped up on his own initiative and volunteered to speak at his local Tea Party events.

It is not too late for you to do likewise in your area. Approach your local Tea Party organizers - why would they not want to have a veteran speak on behalf of Oath Keepers or lead the Tea Party participants in taking the oath?

It makes for a memorable and very meaningful event, and it is something positive for a change, amid all the negative news we are bombarded with daily. It is a message of courage and hope, and it is fully fitting for a day when we should be rededicating ourselves to both the ideals of the American Revolution, and the resolve and determination of our forefathers.

July 4 is rivaled only by April 19 for evoking that spirit - the spirit of 76. And our oath, and our stand in honor of it, is a powerful tool to use to dispel fear and to spark the fire of liberty that still burns somewhere down inside every American.

The Oath is a powerful force for good. Use it.

We are not a social blog-site we are a specific issue blog-site.

That issue for us is the Keeping of our Oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the united States of America and hence our name Oath Keepers.

Thank you for visiting.
