Dirty Civil War

Good read top to bottom.

But I really like this warning...cannot be stated often enough!

I believe that the Constitution will remain our most important defensive bulwark. The Constitution will be our most effective litmus test for separating the oath takers from the traitorous oath breakers. Former military and LE leaders should take every opportunity to remind their active duty brothers of their sworn oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They should also politely remind them that Team Liberty will have a very long memory when it comes to dealing with traitors. There will be no statute of limitations for traitors, and justice might eventually be dealt out under the well-known Rule 308.


Amen.

During the discharge process I don't recall anything where the oath taken at induction was rescinded.  It still holds me.
I'm entitled (to be cranky).

That's the proper interpretation, but when active duty personnel are routinely taught a perverted view of obedience the proper view is subverted.  A constant reminder of that perverted view along with a firm warning of the consequences of following it is necessary.

True, but obedience to an illegal order has never been a defense.  We are still to be held responsible for our own actions.

We say that and know that, too many do not...or choose not to acknowledge it, reminding them is our responsibility to faithfully live up to our oath.
