To All Our Military, Past and Present - We'll Look To You, Our Heroes!
I am writing this entry in honor of all the men and women who have bravely and honorably served this nation throughout its great history, but specifically to those who still serve. And I have some tough questions to ask. When you joined whatever your chosen branch of the military is, you took an oath. The oath required that you "solemnly swear (or affirm) that (you) will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that (you) will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that (you) will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over (you), according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help (you) God." First, I find it interesting, especially in these times, that you pledge this oath to God. That, in itself, provides some comfort to those of us who believe in the Constitution, and the Judeo-Christian beliefs that this country was founded upon. But what happens if/when you have to choose between defending the Constitution of the United States and obeying the orders of the President of the United States? What happens if/when the two become incompatible? What will you do? You need to think about that. I hope you will choose country and the Constitution over the President, for the country is more important than any one man. Those of you who have served the country are heroes, plain and simple. Hold fast to your honor and your integrity if it comes to making the hard choice. We are witnessing the American Republic being changed into something that contains facets of fascism, socialism and communism, and will soon resemble something much different than the American Republic as it was created. At some point this 'new' system is going to become incompatible with the ideology conveyed to us through the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. It is inevitable if we stay on our current course. This President, with his rhetoric and his radical progressive agenda, and with this appointment of Communists and Socialists as "special advisors", has set us on a course that in my opinion, over time, will lead us directly to one of three violent conflicts. A race war (which he has fueled), a class war (which he continues to fuel) or an ideological war (in which the radical left revolutionaries have already unleashed the first salvo). In my opinion, if we do not get President Obama out of office soon, or at the very least dramatically influence the direction in which this country is headed through OUR voices, the next President may not have the strength of character or the will to avoid such a conflict. The writing is on the wall... Wake Up America!
