George Washington was a member of the British forces prior to the Revolutionary War. Fact. Not Fiction. He was an exemplary leader in that force. There is no evidence that he was other than a great soldier for them. I regard him as the greatest of American presidents. The rest don't even come close to how awesome I would be as president.
Defending our nation as a member of the military is very different than agreeing with our CIC's mandates and example. Having been the capitalist that made money in our country, I felt a compunction to provide that protection that so many behind the Ivory Wall take for granted. Yes, we need to fix some shit. It is the soldier that provides that opportunity to make better decisions. Don't ever degrade the sacrifice of a soldier/marine/airmen/seamen/coastie in front of me. I will take you out. It may be the last thing I do. Be thankful for those that give you time to fix your damn country. They aren't the problem. Your inability to influence public opinion is the problem. They toil for your time to fix this shit.
Get it right. You don't get the right to have any opinion without the sacrifice of those that protect you and yours. Use that protection wisely. Pray about your fortunate circumstance and fix the crap that you can. Soldiers buy time for you to make decent decisions. If you don't make those decisions, you will pay the price. The soldier will live on. Your wife and children will be subject to those that win. You will be dead.
