@Hawkeye_diesel I am a military brat, raised by an officer, and former reservist. I, and every male in my family for generations, as well as you, took an oath that begins with, “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…”. This is the first and most powerful statement in the oath we took because it holds precedence over everything that follows. For my part, I have not seen a governmental cycle yet that has not stepped all over the Constitution. Therefore, I find it difficult to hold allegiance to holders of office. For me, respecting the office does not equate respecting the person holding office; nor, are they prerequisite to each other.
We, and now I speak of all people everywhere, are in seriously dangerous waters. We had better start looking at the long game of survival of the species before we drown in petty archaic notions and institutions.
