You see, that's what has been wrong for a long time now.
People thinking that it's okay for different branches and departments of the government to side with political parties.
There is a VERY good reason why that is not allowed. Ever.
Individuals in those branches and departments most certainly can have an opinion or be on a "side". Just like when I was in the US Navy, I could vote
for whomever I desired.
What I was NOT allowed to do was to put on my uniform and go to some political rally, or claim that I represented the US Navy (which wearing the
uniform to something like that is considered an endorsement).
We have rules for this. Those branches and departments are not suppose to be dictated by political parties. When they do it....it causes problems. Big
What happens if the entire DoD decides, that's it, we're going to play partisan politics, and we hate all Democrats. New orders: Next election cycle,
tanks and troops will be stationed at all polling stations. There will be two exits at those polling stations. One exit for those that voted the right
way. Another for those that voted the wrong way.....to be taken away some place for "re-education".
This is really simple. Something that all of you should of learned about in any high school civics class. You do not allow your department or branch
to do this. Employees can do it on their own time, own personal ways, that's their first amendment right. But they may not use that department or
branch to also do that.
Still don't think it's a problem? More proof: Take a look at Congress, the Senate and......SCOTUS....where partisan politics are in play all the
time.....and tell me what a good job that's been for us.
