Defending the Constitution

The Armed Forces of the United States risk their lives without question to defend and protect the United States and our Constitution. They are not our enemies. They are our benefactors, our defenders, our protectors, our Sons and Daughters, our Brothers and Sisters, our Mothers and Fathers. They are the best of us.

The current President and the vast majority of both the House and Senate do everything in their power to tear down and destroy the Constitution and our way of life. They are one and all, liars, hypocrites and traitors in every sense of the words. The oath they take means nothing to them. They are the worst of us.
