They are doing something protect our freedom.


Their existence creates a plausible threat to those who would take our freedom.


Now, is our military being used by those not interested in wielding them in the best interest of Americans?


Sure.

But that is the failing of civilians. Not the people in the military.

Misrepresentation.

Not really.

Now, is our military being used by those not interested in wielding them in the best interest of Americans?

Sure.

False



But that is the failing of civilians. Not the people in the military.

The failing is with those left with the publics trust to defend the constitution.

Your thinking is flawed, it's EVERYONE's responsibility to defend and uphold the constitution. You, your elected officials, grandma down the street etc.

Your statement is just throwing blame when you should be looking in the mirror.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1165448


There is another party that has primary responsibility. Intelligence. WTF. They DIDN'T know that there was a culture of bribery and corruption in Washington that would result in a loss of American freedom and soverignty? Clearly compromised; in fact; participating in , enabling, and serving th process that has suppressed our rights.

It is elitist policy capture. The brass that set policy are directed by the elite. And the culture of perserving personal cultural safety instead "confronting the boss" is what has gotten us here.

I know its easier said than done; but the result is we all blame the other and the country falls. Who is primarily to blame? Who is obligated by oath to defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic; but that, as it turns out, is bullshit; its really just about getting a job, getting paid.. right?

No one person is to blame; the culture and assimilation of self preservation and doing or saying whatever is necessary to get position is.

And the ones who are heroes will insist that they're not.
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.
