"Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom." Thomas Jefferson
The established, standing, and unwavering commitment of this forum is to offer truth. In light of what is happening in and to our United States of America, truth is evident.
Americans - the elected, the appointed, and the volunteers - of common Colors and oaths of office. But whom today, in the eyes of Jefferson, are our patriots?
Who reads and heeds, at least the first chapter, the book of wisdom? Our volunteers!
And, most importantly, to whom do we look, trust, to defend and protect us? Our volunteers!
Oh God, our elected and appointed. Thank God, our volunteers!
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
But for how long one Nation under God? But for how long indivisible? But for how long liberty for all? But for how long justice for all. And, but for how long our Republic?
The slide is truth, to the core. The contrast is disheartening. The contrast is disturbing. The contrast is a threat to survival. The contrast must not stand.
To where and whom allegiance?
