The military swears an oath to defend the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic
Notice that word "domestic"
I don't want to say it , yet it is getting about that time the US military stopped being the military arm of the UN and start doing what they are sworn in to do
The NYT article was a direct attack on the Constitution more so than even the attack on Pearl Harbor.


Use the military to suppress free speech in order to defend the constitution. Great thinking.

Who suggested that ?
No thinking there , pardner.
You failed , but you are allowed to try again.
Once.
And I may go easy on you again.
May....


You did. Its in the quoted text.

Unless you can give a plausible alternative explanation of what you meant?

No surprise at all. They have to teach hatred towards what America is built on so they can change it to what they want.

America needs to stand up for what it has. All i'm seeing is whining and heresay.

My Dad always told me that if a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well. I'm seeing little to none of that in todays monstrosity we call life.

Kinda sad.

No one's really worried by the progressives revolt. We've seen the antifa protests. basement dwellers are far from intimidating.

It was bad during the height of the reign of Obama, but it was never this bad.


Bush, and Obama.

What's been going on the last two years is the worse I've seen it.

The last line of the article was chilling.



But it’s a problem worth confronting. As long as we think of our Constitution as a sacred document, instead of an outdated relic, we’ll have to deal with its anti-democratic consequences.


And yet, many of us took an oath and were willing to offer our lives if necessary to protect that "outdated relic" and the people who are free because of it.

In fact, that oath had another part that seems fitting here:

"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."


Push just a little harder, and see if this doesn't come up again.

For those that support the popular vote rhetoric and are butt hurt about it.

This is as simple as I can put it for you to understand why we are not a democracy of mob rule and why we have the system we have.

What the left is doing is building a narrative, building a case for a coup.


The title of your article. . .


Think the Constitution Will Save Us? Think Again
The subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the framers.


They are openly endorsing a coup.

What many of us have been saying for quite some time.

The left hates the Constitution, hates the freedoms it guarantees, and wants a coup.

QED


But the US is a republic, its not actually a democracy.

That is why the POTUS was not the popular choice of the majority. He was placed there by a weird and secretive group (the electoral college).

And the current government urinates on the constitution, too. E,g; It's unconstitutional for the government to run surveillance on all citizens, which it does.


Weak on civics.
Weak on logic.

Probably think that just banning guns will make violence go away. London's murder rate (with knives) passing New York's (with guns). There goes your "theory".

Same kind of reasoning that "we could fix the obesity epidemic if only we banned spoons..."

The second amendment was meant as a protection against tyranny; banning guns is one of the first things NAZIs did when they came to power - made it a lot easier to frog march people to extermination camps.

More recently, I'm pretty sure the victims of the North Korea or Venezuela last thoughts before being killed by their own governments was not "Gee, good thing I did not have a gun". But then, you are a leftist so, who cares about human lives, right ? Their damn fault for not submitting to maximum socialist leader, right ?


In regards, to the Electoral College, nothing mysterious or secretive - a centuries-old tradition well documented
(assuming you can read). Its purpose is the same principle as the rules governing the Senate: ensuring a local Region with high population does not get to decide the Presidency.

The President is to represent ALL 50 states, not just New York and California.
To govern the needs of each state, that is why there are Governorships for each of the 50 states.

Hillary lost because the majority of US states correctly realized she is a lousy candidate. Period.

Enough with your uninformed whining...

But if the wolves have more electoral college votes that would be OK?

I've read the article and the first page of this thread.

What is wrong with you people?

Freedom of speech?
Remember that?

The US Constitution is a great piece of legislation.....but it's not perfect. (Hence the need for so many Amendments!)
And as all great pieces of legislation it requires constant monitoring and tweaking and updating to make sure its fit for purpose.

And in accordance with one of the basic principles enshrined within your Constitution everyone is allowed their opinion and has a right to voice that opinion.
They're not 'effing Commies' they just have a different opinion to you!

Nowhere is anyone advocating the overthrow of your government and the suspension of any of the rights your Constitution ensures.

You do realise just how the rest of the world views your apparent paranoid ranting don't you?



....you say this from England, as the UK with no free speech constitutional protection locks up your own citizens for "islamophobia"... enjoy the boot stepping on your face....

You are speaking to a slave of the EU. They won't get it, because they think their votes matter when those they vote for are controlled by a bunch of parasitic non elected bureaucrats in Brussels.

But the globalists and their minions are hell bent to buy off enough of our corrupt elected officials that want to destroy our Constitution so that we can be ruled by those we didn't elect?
