In response to AFNAV130's comment:
I have heard it said many times that this country is as divided as it was near the time of the Civil War. I for one relish it. I want what I hope is coming to come. Then those who feel that the government needs to protect them will be put to the ultimate test. Those who believe in personal freedoms and the rights that the constitution gave us, versus those who try to destroy it at every step in the name of "progress". I spent 10 years, which I now am sad to think about, defending the Constitution and the people of this country. It makes me sick to see the rejoicing here in AZ about the veto. It said nothing about gays, straight, white, black, purple or otherwise. All it said is based on religious principles a business owner OF ANY BACKGROUND can refuse service. What, pray tell is wrong with that? It's not a goverment office or establishment. Private business. The misinformation is astounding. If it devolves into a shooting war, all the better. Only then, when the smoke clears will the truth finally show itself. I put my money on those who actually care about freedoms, veruss those who believe transferring them to th government is the right course of action. War for states rights? Sounds about right.
Here's an ex soldier who wants to re-fight the civil war. An embarassment to military men and women everywhere if you ask me.
Again, here is a person who doesn't understand the oath a military person swore. To support and defend the constitution. Embarrassment? I know I'm not worried about you if something kicks off. You'll capitulate quite expeditiously. Funny thing. It's the last thing I want. But if it comes to that, I know the men from Boston will be on the opposite side of where they were 150 and 230 years ago respectively. That to me, is as sad of a thought as could be. And quite an indicator of where we are as a society. I used to loathe Robert E Lee for years growing up. Was he an embarrssment? I find now, no. At least I served, what about you?
I served - 25 years - enlisted, warrant and full commissioned. I find your comments advocating a shooting civil war in this country impossible to comprehend. That you would make reference to supporting and defending the Constitution in the same paragarph is beyond astounding.
And I caution you to be quite careful about generalizing military service. I can assure you I can find little if anything at all that you've posted that I can agree with.
Sure. Same as it was in the mid 1850s huh? All enemies foreign and domestic. Remember that lil nugget? I find your inability to comprehend what's happening moronic. Go check how many people have not registered their weapons in Connecticut. Go. Please check.
25 years? Must have been long ago. I am saddened that someone who apparently thought enough to serve 25 year can sit back and just let things go. That is a sad indictment of yourself, sir. Go ask WW2 vets. Nam Vets. Oath Keepers. I don't want a shooting war. But if that's what it takes to get the Constitution back to the forefront, get freedoms back to the people, then so be it. I won't stand in it's way. Prism, Obamacare, IRS, F&F, the list goes on an on. Patriot Act. More like the intolerable acts. Again, the likes of Adams, Hancock and the gang are hanging their heads in shame about people like you. Leave this here and it is a message for you and your ilk.
John Adams: Oh posterity, you will never know how much it cost us to preserve your freedom. I hope that you will make a good use of it, for if you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.
