God and Country - Comment of the Day

Bruce Lewis, in a comment appended to this post on the subject of women serving in front line combat roles.

...We are a Navy family going ‘way back, but my son is going to be the first male of the line who will, God willing, not serve in his country’s defense.

Why? Because his country—the United States of America—doesn’t exist anymore.

And the entity that has taken its place isn’t worth dying for. I’m not sending my kid into harm’s way to protect homosexual “marriage”, abortion on demand, or free phones for ghetto ghouls. Eff that.

I know a lot of conservatives still buy into that God & Country stuff. Hell, even I still stand when the flag passes, although I no longer salute or pledge my allegiance. But the plain fact of the matter is that the “country” in “God and Country” isn’t our country any more. The government in Washington no longer represents the interests of the parties it was created to represent: the American states. It is now a tyranny run by people who hate us and everything for which we stand, and I say to hell with it.

I’m loyal to the country, not the government. My allegiance is pledged to the old America, the America with the 48-star flag. That America was worth the blood of its sons. This one isn’t…

And as for the oath she took: she swore to defend the Constitution of the United States. Under the current political order, that document is no longer in effect. Therefore, no oath to defend it can have any meaning so long as the current political order exists.
