Conflicts with oath
Decades ago, I swore an oath that charged me with defending the Constitution from “all enemies, both foreign and domestic.” Retirement did not dissolve that oath.
That a serial adulterer, liar, and all-around bad person is occupying the White House has been nauseating enough. Lame excuses about “learning curves’” hold no water to those in uniform. His contempt for those who serve was evident before. Now he mocks a U.S. senator, a Vietnam vet.
My respect for the rule of law is colliding with my oath to protect and defend. A conundrum. (There are no guns in my house, if anyone decides to “investigate” this as a threat.)
