Ohio Oath KeepersOhio Oath Keepers has called a Regional Midwest Conference for the entire Oath Keeper Membership across the nation. Oath Keepers also extends an invitation to all other patriotic groups in Ohio and surrounding states to attend this conference.

This conference is being called as a means to understand the need to create a cohesive effort to stop the tyrannous onslaught to our countries basic ideals. The need to put aside political differences and personal diversities to fight the socialistic uprising within our country has never been more important.

It is essential as individuals and the many diverse groups to arrive at a consensus to stop the usurpation of laws and the destruction of the very existence of this great country. If we do not stand together, this once great country, this land of opportunity, this land of the free and home of the brave, will cease to exist as we know it…
