I write this Veteran’s day to apologize.
I swore to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and I failed that oath.
I failed to stand against a government who passed the PATRIOT act in violation of the 4th Amendment.
I failed by deploying without a formal declaration of war in violation of Article 1 section 8.
I failed to liberate people held indefinitely without charges in violation of Article 1, section 9, and the 5th Amendment.
I failed to stand against digitally strip searching, or enhanced pat-downs without probable cause or warrant in violation of the 4th Amendment.
I failed to defend Farmers from being raided by FDA agents for selling Fresh milk.
I failed to stand against assassinating American citizens on an accusation in violation of the 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments.
I can’t name all the constitutional violations the federal government has taken. There are other violations by state and local governments such as the murder and cover-up of a deaf man by Seattle Police, or the violations from before I took my oath.
Victimless laws classified as crimes against government are what Thomas Jefferson defined as Tyranny, or that which is illegal for the people, but legal for the government.
I failed because I haven’t stood up. I am a coward, caring more for my career than for American’s liberty. I failed my duty, and I’ve no honor on Veteran’s day. America is not the land of the free because I haven’t been brave.
