nation of laws; not men

All of us vets took this oath. We stood side by side with one another in a variety of times and circumstanses and proudly raised our hands to this simple affirmation of duty and alliegience.

"I, { }, do solemnly swear, (or affirm), that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

How can we who have taken this oath so easily surrender to those who are using this nation for their own gain. We may have differing opinions about the poor use of troops in Iraq but when it comes to deffending the constitution of this great land there can be no divisions. We are a democratic republic nation of laws; not men.

There is no way any of you can be true to this oath and approve of the recent unconstitutional activities of this Neocon absorbed administration.
