U.S. Military “forced” to vote Ron Paul

28Oct07

Military members are required, by Oath, to “support and defend the Constitution”. The 2008 elections are ramping up to be a crossroads for service members, especially through the perspective of duty and service by way of an oath.

Let the records show that Ron Paul has never made a congressional decision without consulting the Constitution, in fact his platform for the Presidency is based, almost solely, upon the salvation of the Constitution. A little common sense would then lead you to the conclusion that a vote for Ron Paul would fulfil the Oath of Enlistment/Office, leaving the military member no other recourse but to vote for the “Constitutionalist Candidate”, Congressman Ron Paul.
Military men and women generally have a simplistic view about elections. The view is: who is our commander in chief, and what does he/she have us doing now? The problem is, the military member is a very small minority compared to the overall citizenry. The military member depends on the citizens to ‘provide’ them with a good leader. One who leads by example.

There are three primal ‘powers’ mankind is afforded; wealth, knowledge and force. We, the people, control all three.

As of 27 October 2007, the Department of Defence has stated that 32,009 men and women have lost their lives or their limbs in Iraq. Each one of these patriots takes an oath before serving. The oath is as follows: “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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

The Oath of Enlistment/Office IS the moral contract required to ensure the foundations of our government are stable. It is the most important act of any serviceman to perform, and any actions thereafter must be to fulfil the Oath.

Since the current war began, 3,838 of the 32,009 people gave their lives to fulfil the oath.

Please think about that a moment. Try to envision the numbers.

They gave their lives, not because they were drones or mindless creatures that simply obey at a given command. They gave their lives and they gave their limbs first and foremost to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and secondly they obeyed the orders of the President, who the citizens helped to elect.

You don’t need to serve in the military to fight a war. More than likely Ron Paul is risking his own life by defending the constitution in such a bold manner. So, he’s got guts, and by his message we can see he has principles, and through the history of his congressional decisions, we can see clearly that he will not waiver from the law of the Constitution. What does this mean? It means he is the first ‘modern’ Presidential Candidate who can be trusted to uphold the rule of law, while not diminishing the defence of our country or our liberties.

As a Congressman, Ron Paul has championed the Constitution. Electing Ron Paul ensures the defence of the Constitution. So, would you give your life, donate your arms, or one of your legs to ensure Ron Paul becomes President? Thankfully there are other citizens who volunteer for those possibilities within their respective duties. You need to focus on the war of ideologies that Ron Paul is leading.

Those in the military are counting on the private citizens of this country to provide them with the best possible commander in chief. They are depending on the private citizens to dissent when needed. They are counting on you to sacrifice what you are able, and as citizens, to aid in the support and defence of the Constitution. The private citizen has more fire-power than all the Armies of the world. Private citizens control the powers of wealth, knowledge, and force.

You, as private citizens can help defend the Constitution by your own show of collective knowledge and wealth, I would ask that you leave the power of force to the soldier, the airman, the sailor, and the marine. Keep your life, keep your limbs, but mostly keep your leaders in check.

Spread the word, use your wealth, support and defend the Constitution, organize, and elect Ron Paul.

The only power anyone has over you, is the power you give them.

    Anyone buying this needs their head examined.

    Remember remember the Eleventh of September,
    Thermite treason and plot.
    I see no reason why thermite treason,
    Should ever be forgot…

    Lord Bush, twas his intent
    To blow up twin towers, and army be sent,
    three score charges were laid below,
    to prove Osama bin Laden, evil doer malcontent.

    Ground zero at midnight, and by torchlight there was found,
    With molten metal and sliced cores, underground.
    This is the day that God did not prevent,
    To blow up the towers so they would descent.

    Holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring,
    Holler boys, holler boys, until they sing.

  5. Rangersfc,
    Have you actually listened to Ron Paul, or read any of his speeches before Congress? If so, I can’t imagine how you can say that this is “more of the same crap” that we’ve been hearing for the last 8 years.

    Representative Paul voted *against* the invasion of Iraq, he didn’t hype it up. He has consistently been in favor of withdrawing troops, *not* “staying the course” or adding more forces.

    Ron Paul has always stood in favor of the Constitution, and his voting record has proven that. He’s not called “Dr. No” for nothing.

    If Ron Paul had decided to be an unprincipled, scheming, Machiavellian politician, like so many we have in office right now (and like most of the others contending for the presidential nomination) he most likely could have gone a lot higher in the levels of government than he has.

    Instead, this plain-speaking, no-nonsense doctor from Texas has stood firm on principle and Constitutional authority, even when he could have benefited greatly from doing otherwise. He is a proven man of integrity, and that is vanishingly rare in today’s political landscape.

    Internet fundraisers raise the most cash on days when millions of people are seated at their desks/ computers on a workday. Trying to get people to go to their computers on a Sunday to donate is not going to pay off.
