Will Those Who Took an Oath Save our Republic?

Will Those Who Took an Oath Save our Republic?:

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”—Thomas Paine (1737-1809)

Although my byline is attached to this article, in all honesty I would have to give JB Williams the lion’s share of the credit for it—you might say that I’m simply echoing his sentiments. In any event, here are some further thoughts on the “Restore the Constitution” rally being held on 11/11/11 in Washington DC.

As conditions in America have worsened over the last few years, in particular since a man with no valid discernible past took up residence in our White House, I have heard the same question asked over and over again with increasing regularity, and dismay—“Where’s our military and law enforcement? Isn’t anyone who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, going to do something?”

Amid an endless stream of conspiracy theories, a real conspiracy was underway, and well-founded concerns for the state of our union led to other questions—“why are our soldiers allegedly fighting for freedom and liberty abroad while we are being stripped of our freedom and liberty at home? Why isn’t anyone doing anything to stop it?”
