I don’t even know why anyone would serve in the military, anymore. Yeah, they swear an oath to defend the Constitution, but in reality they are defending a dictatorship.
“I dont even know why anyone would serve in the military, anymore.”
To learn as much as you can of course.
And more and more they have to hide any Christian beliefs they have, and they have to be careful to not offend the sodomites.
I had a conversation with one of my (still military) buds the other day.
He asked me what I thought of Snowden.
I said I’m conflicted, because though he did violate the letter of the law regarding his confidentiality agreement, I haven’t seen any evidence of actual harm he has committed against the Republic. And what moral crime has he committed? In fact, Snowden has revealed some of the unconstitutional activities being conducted, acts of which favor freedom and adherence to the Constitution. Sunshine is the best disinfectant!
He said Snowden’s a traitor, but he couldn’t name any specific acts of treason such as revealing the names and locations of CIA agents overseas (like Jack Anderson did years ago, to the accolades of the media at the time — and got away with it).
Next time I see my buddy, I’ll ask him if he supports the second amendment (I know he does, and he’s probably a CCP holder too). Then I will point out the irony of his support for gun rights, versus his condemnation of someone who does a better job defending other constitutional rights than he does, even though he supposedly is the one who took an oath to defend the Constitution.
I don’t think of Snowden as being either a hero or villain, yet. It’s too early to know the entirety of his revelations. Maybe he will reveal specifics that compromise our ability to conduct special operations against our jihadist enemies — who knows, too early to say. But as long as he’s only revealing the existence of unconstitutional government abuses against American citizens, I applaud him.
Tis 100% true. Doesn't seem to bother many, does it?
But here's the disgrace: Another reality is that the .guv is the largest employer in the nation. Any sworn oath (the violation of which is no longer taken seriously from the Top on Down) is a mere formality, superseded by...next week's paycheck and tonight's pizza, beer, and episode of 'Dancing With Stars.'
There will come a day when the military is made up of mind numb robots and retards. And when they’re told to “fire”, they’ll pull the trigger no matter who or what is in the sights.
