An open letter from former members of the U.S. military released on May 10 is warning American citizens that the nation “is in deep peril.” The letter, signed by 124 retired military members of various ranks, says the U.S. is “in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776.”
The letter is penned by a group known as Flag Officer 4 America, who identify themselves as retired admirals and generals “pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
The letter explains that the current fight in America is “Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty.” The signatories express concern over the 2020 presidential election and lament that current attempts to secure voting are deemed “racist.” They also say the two bills on voting in Congress, H.R. 1 and S. 1, “would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic.”
The letter goes on to say:
Aside from the election, the Current Administration has launched a full-blown assault on our Constitutional rights in a dictatorial manner, bypassing the Congress, with more than 50 Executive Orders quickly signed, many reversing the previous Administration’s effective policies and regulations. Moreover, population control actions such as excessive lockdowns, school and business closures, and most alarming, censorship of written and verbal expression are all direct assaults on our fundamental Rights.
The signatories also express concerns over China, the border crisis, free speech, the Iran nuclear deal, the Keystone Pipeline closure, troops surrounding over the Capitol, riots, as well as “the mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief.”
The letter closes by calling for action.
Under a Democrat Congress and the Current Administration, our Country has taken a hard left turn toward Socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government which must be countered now by electing congressional and presidential candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic. The survival of our Nation and its cherished freedoms, liberty, and historic values are at stake. We urge all citizens to get involved now at the local, state and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable. The “will of the people” must be heard and followed.
