Every absurdity has a champion to defend it. Oliver Goldsmith
Integrity first. Service before self. Excellence in all we do.
Loyalty; duty; respect; selfless service; honor; integrity; personal courage (LRDSHIP).
Honor. Courage. Commitment.
Honor. Respect. Devotion.
The preceding lines are core values - of our countrymen who voluntarily wear a uniform and swear oath to protect and defend the rest of us. In order: U. S. Air Force; U. S. Army; U. S. Navy and U. S. Marine Corps; U. S. Coast Guard.
Values, specific to each, are inclusive not mutually exclusive.
Bottom line: Lives in uniform do not lie, cheat, steal nor tolerate those who do.
That the Democrat party nominated a candidate, investigated and substantiated to be the antithesis of the aforementioned values and bottom line deviant, to be President and commander-in-chief.
Ergo, not absurd but fundamental logical questions.
Q: Of what value values?
Q: Value of the valueless?
Values - frame order to lives; to society. Civility.
Valueless - deceit and disorder. Uncivilized.
Deceit and disorder - aplenty we suffer.
Valueless lives, peon to President, who partake (in deceit), and consequences thereof (of disorder) - worthless (to civilized society).
Q: Worthless lives matter?
Q: Worthless President?
Q: Champion of values?
Q: Champion of absurdity?
