I, Brandon J. Rhome;do solemnly swear;that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

I spoke those words five times over my 20 year Navy career. I probably heard it at least 100 more as I witnessed my brothers, and sisters, in arms take the same oath. I took those words very seriously. It was my promise to my country. I made that promise because I believed with all of my heart, that my Country's promise to me, as written in the Constitution, would not be broken. Now, I'm not so sure. It seems many of our current elected officials view our Constitution with contempt. They casually interpret its words to support a particular ideology or ignore it all together. Because of this I am now certain my defense of our Constitution did not end when I became a civilian again.

Disagreeing with the current policies being promoted by our elected officials does not make me a terrorist, a racist, a political extremist, or any other ist. It makes me and American, and I refuse to shut up and get out of the way. I am not a Nazi, or a member of the Taliban. On the contary, I spent 20 years of my life defending the United States from such things.
