I believe most recruits don't know. As a military brat I attended many schools and did not learn much about politics.. I passed tests, I didn't learn.. it wasn't until I became a Granger that I learned about the democratic process.. So I can't blame troops for what they don't know.. many enlisted are teens who can't even legally drink a beer because of age discrimination. Most want to "do the right thing", and it's not like their parents know any better.
To me, it's the elected who take oaths to the constitution that I have an issue with. I re-wrote my committee by-laws to make the constitution supreme.. some members are "unsure".. that's the problem.. taking an oath one is "unsure" about and then not doing it because of "precident".
Interesting site.. is it yours?
