    🦅🇺🇸🕊DISCLAIMER: I didn't get political until I left the service, and my views are my own, and in no way reflect the views of the United States Navy. If you have the patience…. I'd appreciate the opportunity to share my perspective.

    At some point people need to acknowledge that the vast majority of the abnormalities we are facing are a direct result of both the Obama and Trump presidencies.

    Constitutional Law in and of itself is difficult for those who aren't lifelong students of it; and I don't consider any viable solutions will come from simple answers, but I've been to countries with actual tyranny…. but the divisiveness in this nation is a security risk; and it is why Russian & Chinese state owned media networks are using influence operations for the sake of destabilization.

    ….but my analysis is based on academics and experience; after my time in the military, I then worked in the field of international relations and human rights for 13 years before becoming a pastor.

    There is a reason most service members and veterans I speak with can't support Trump. For many of the same reasons many couldn't support Obama; and that is because the oath of enlistment has no expiration date, and we are in deeply troubling times, with the Constitution at stake.

    And although Trump cabinet is a cherry picked group of unqualified sycophants, whom even Trump himself can't stop contradicting and lying to….
    And despite dismantling the Office of Congressional Ethics in his first week as President, which caused an increased cesspool within both political parties; a handful of Representatives from each side are maintaining some semblance of sanity, while our institutions are crumbling.

    It seems like no matter how people vote…. it will be Alzheimers 2020. We as Americans deserve better options than the geriatric oligarchs presented to us by either party! I must say…. The language of "loyalty" to a political party is deeply disturbing, and disconcerting. Civvies are standing by while people die overseas for what they refuse to defend at home. We are Americans first, and not who we vote for. And I believe that there are far more ways to serve this country than Enlistment alone.

    I would like to take the opportunity to share my thoughts with anyone who is interested; it would mean a lot to me if you consider reading what I put the time and effort into typing…. and sharing your thoughts; as; it is my way of sharing my perspective with fellow Americans, veteran and civilian alike…. regardless of political affiliation.

    I know I'm not the only one getting tired of all of the foolishness/divisiveness in our Nation; the only left or right that matters, are those that will inevitably man the line, the next time our sons and daughters are drafted. And although people should be livid, we as Americans are finally getting sick of how candidates, regardless of party affiliation, have been disrespectful towards the people they are responsible to:

    1) Debates should be un-timed and uninterrupted

    2) Candidates should be required to fully elucidate their thoughts and policies

    3) Panels of academics should be asking questions… not puppets with ear pieces

    4) Debates should go on as long as they have to

    I like the idea of taking candidate selection away from political parties…. some sort of draft to a non-partisan pool for the populace to select from; who cares if it requires an additional voting cycle, if it allows for a deeper vetting and evaluation (Physical, Psychological, etc), and assuring that they are not just qualified…. but knowledgable and capable of performing the duties in a manner that is beyond aspersions or reproach…. from Foreign Diplomats and domestically from citizens.

    Nevertheless,Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), goes both ways; either people think he is the antichrist, or idolize him to the point where they think he can do no wrong. Trump will probably get 2020; but that's to be expected, the US seldom has one term presidencies… regardless of how bad they are.

    Yet, that will be 4 more years of irreparable harm to America's standing in the world; estranging our relationships with longtime allies, who are existential to our existence…. while continuing to allow our would be enemies to gain strength as Trump oddly worships tyrannical despots publicly. He is inept to the task at hand, as are many of the candidates presented.

    Trump views things as business deals, even when they're not; and is incapable of differentiating his personal affairs with matters of diplomacy. However, one cannot "deal" with tyrants like Russia & China; as they are flagrantly violating the Law of the Sea, the Geneva Accords, Flooding the world with drugs and weapons, and undermining sanctions on hostile nations around the world. Trump's failure to understand geopolitics, implement International Law as a tool, and be diplomatic is detrimental. He has on many occasions let his personality get in the way.

    Furthermore, he doesn't trust the intelligence community, or those who have spent their whole lives in the service & defense of our country; his own handpicked people, even. He believes he knows better than specialists in every respective field. Never mind the multitude of his weirdly unqualified cabinet choices.

    People focus too much on his personality and that, objectively, he's a national embarrassment; but as a veteran, I've found multiple reasons why he is a national security risk.

    It shouldn't be abnormal to expect that we would be led by the best and brightest; have candidates capable of meeting the full spectrum of requisites for the performance of their office, and do so in a manner that is beyond aspersions or reproach. The people who write laws shouldn't be the ones who vote on them… we need people who can meet the needs of the modern day; people with multiple PhDs, real-world experience, and are mentally/emotionally competent enough to listen to wise counsel without letting logical fallacies or cognitive biases come in conflict with sound reason.

    And since 9/11 each presidency & congressional house has made sweeping power grabs in direct conflict with the Constitution. And the political pendulum keeps swinging further left and right. I swore an oath to defend the Constitution… both foreign and domestic; but it seems that people at home have forgotten how fragile Democracy is, and it's deeply disturbing how things have been going, because when Democracy fails…. tyranny prevails.

    We as Americans have been complacent as both parties have become cartels, and very much two sides of the same coin.

    I would never want to see something like 9/11 on American soil ever again; but the unity it created following 9/12, made America temporarily more unified and the world a safer place…. at the expense and forfeitures of many freedoms domestically. sleep.

    Three things can help heal our country:
    1) Talk to people you have nothing in common with.

    2) Read "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder…. & "The True Believer" by Eric Hoffer.

    3) Take a little time every once in a while to watch C-SPAN, to see and hear exactly what our elected representatives are actually saying and doing.

    Here are some tools every American should know and use:

    All the recent presidents except for Trump have released their taxes. Is he hiding something? If not, why not share them with the American people

    Wondering how "Christians" will react when Muslims & other religious groups partition for State funds to support their children in their religious based education schools.
