Yours, Mine, Ours

We all know what a free republic looks like being born. Will we soon know what one looks like as it dies?

More than a decade ago, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Charles Krulak wrote an article called the “The Three Block War” in which he introduced the term “the strategic corporal”.

Krulak, a thought-provoking and engaging leader, argued that the role of the Marine Corps was changing and becoming more complicated on the battlefield. He noted the devolution of decision making, or the pushing down if you will, of important decisions to the field level.

So many Americans fear they are losing their country—that the old America is slipping away and being replaced by something formless and hollowed out. They can see we are giving up our sovereignty because our leaders will not control our borders. Our schools, and the teachers within them, don't teach our young the old-fashioned love of America.

This government, embodied in the Congress which will live in infamy, is causing us to lose the place we love.

The parallel is clear. Conservative voices are the strategic corporals in the fight to stand guard over liberty and win back Washington. It is hard work, but we owe nothing less to our country and our countrymen.

You're both color blind. I could see it quite clearly. It does stick out better now though.

TWP, you control those things in your own post.
