An Open Message to Police & Military

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
This is an open message to police, to the military, to TSA, Homeland Security and to members of every other enforcement arm within government. I know that most of you chose the life of uniform because you love your country. Because you believe in what that uniform stood for. Because you genouilly wanted to serve and protect. But I also know that deep down inside you sense that something is gone terribly wrong. You've watched with the rest of us as elected officials have legislated our constitutional rights away, piece by piece. You've watched as the state's surveillance aparatus has expanded like a cancer through the heart of the nation. And you've seen the corruption has become more *common* every passing year. I can understand why you haven't wanted to acknowledge the implications of what you are witnessing. Face the reality of what's happening would mean admitting that you've been betrayed. And it would mean coming to terms with the fact that you are working for criminals. I don't envy your position. I know your job depends on following orders. I know you have families to support and bills to pay. And I know that if you stand up, you could lose everything. But what you need to understand is that continuing to submit to unconstitutional and inmoral orders will not protect you from what's coming. You may tell yourself that you could draw your line in the sand later, that there's a certain point where you'll say "no". But in reality, you crossed the line a long time ago. You're standing on the wrong side of history right now. You're already participating in the destruction of this country and the trampling of our rights. Of your children's rights and your grandchildren's rights. You're the enforcement arm of a criminal enterprise. You're servant of a rapidly expanding police state and you do have a choice. I'm not telling you this to condemn you. I'm telling you this because we, the people, desperately, need you to take a stand. We desperately need you to have the courage to face your commanding officers and tell them, "No. I didn't sign up for this", "No. this isn't right", "No. I will not obbey these unlawful orders." You took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It's time to start taking that oath... ...seriously. Why are you hurting these people!? It doesn't make any sense! It doesn't make any sense! How do you sleep at night!? There's no honor in this! There's no honor in this! There's no honor in this, man... The truth is extreme. To make it moderate is to lie.
