A True Patriot

So many good people confuse loyalty and devotion to our great Nation with obedience and servility to our Government. Our government is NOT the Nation, the Citizens are the Nation, and our Government has served us poorly for many years.

A true Patriot is always suspicious of our wonderful elected leaders and appointed Mandarins, because power corrupts. The people we have running this country should NOT be trusted, should be held to high standards, and should be scrutinized in every way. Our nation's survival does not depend on the citizenry being compliant to the government's will, but on the will of the people to insist on our government doing the right thing - following the Concepts and Principals of the Constitution. Our Fearless Leader has declared the Constitution a "Flawed document, in need of repair".

If that is not a call for vigilance on our part, I don't know what would be.

I took the oath to defend our Constitution 27 years ago, and I still consider myself bound to that oath until the day I die.

I am with you.

I wouldn't say that they are "running" the country, unless you mean into the ground. Joking aside, the political appointments to office were absolutely NEVER meant to do any such thing as oversee or run the country's people and business. Their job is to punish force and fraud, not to "spread it around."
