An open letter to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the military community
"I, _____ (Joint Chief and Military member), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
“You will bear true faith and allegiance to the same!” These are words that came from our founding fathers.
‘Thomas Jefferson and James Madison felt that if they could not guarantee all rights, at least they could guarantee those that would not allow the growth of tyranny.
Hence the freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech!
To preserve these rights, the second amendment was put into place. This constitution colors all actions in our country, affects all laws, and affects all practices. Though sometimes our nation may have problems relegating the balance between rights and powers, it is the sole document that guarantees our rights.
And it is this document that our congressmen, our president, and our military are sworn to uphold and protect against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and to swear true allegiance to the same, above all other oaths.
It has come time to look to you to uphold this sacred document in this time of growing tyranny that members of Congress, Judicial and Executive branches are trampling. I am confident that of all public servants (to the people of this country and the constitution) you are the ones who pay the ultimate sacrifice to that oath (with your very lives if necessary). You have shown great courage on battlefields afar and have bled to protect the fabric of this great nation and as such you place high value to these principles.
The American people are in great discontent by the usurpation of the Constitution and fear tyranny is at our very doorstep. You are, in effect, our last hope to confront and defend us from it. Your loyalty is not in question and we pray that you follow your heart and your reason to identify tyranny for what it is and defeat it, for us, you and future generations.
Those in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government who have breached their own oaths need to be removed for their transgressions which is not too difficult a task given their own statements of contempt for the very Constitution they have falsely pledged to uphold. America has always stood for strength and freedom for the world to see and slowly, like a cancer eating away at her body we are in great peril of death.
Sirs & Madams, we hope and pray that you will not follow unlawful orders that turn your sights against your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and neighbors from whence you came. You have the moral, legal and constitutional duty to right our course.
