WASHINGTON, DC, May 12 — Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. That’s the gist of the appeal scores of America’s military elite made in a new clarion call to citizens who care and are engaged.
An open letter from the Flag Officers 4 America Web site, signed by 124 Generals and Admirals, warns that if you are a citizen who cares and is engaged, you must get involved “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 letter describes the urgent need for action. “Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as the Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty.”
It focuses on several key issues, starting with the need to ensure “fair and honest” elections in order to save our Representative Republic. We must be ever watchful and act “swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020.”
The letter cautions that Socialist, Marxist and Progressive extremists need to be checked lest they divide our nation into “warring factions.” It takes aim at the calls for open borders, warns that the freedoms we receive thanks to the First Amendment are sacred and in need of protection, and reminds us that the “Rule of Law” — not anarchy — is the basic premise of our Republic.
In conclusion, the letter states that “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.”
The missive focuses on a number of key issues, including China, which the generals and admirals who signed the letter say “is the greatest external threat to America.” Not far behind, it adds, is illegal immigration and resuming U.S. participation in the Iran nuclear deal, two of President Biden’s top agenda items.
The letter goes on to slam Mr. Biden’s decision to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline project. “Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us while eliminating valuable U.S. jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons.”
