Phi Beta Iota: The Republican Party has not only become an extremist party (as has the Democratic Party, each in their own way), but has systematically demonized the federal government and worked very hard to challenge the legitimacy of that government to the point that most Republicans — especially the illiterate ones — do not trust the federal government on any topic. Within the Republican Party the evangelicals, who may now comprise a majority of the chaplain corps in the US military, are actively pro-coup and “anything goes” in relation to dissenters. We continue to believe that the US military must stop lying to itself and everyone else; their Oath to protect the Constitution against all enemies, domestic and foreign, demands that they refuse illegal orders and confront traitors within their ranks and within the US political ranks. It is never too late to reconnect to intelligence with integrity.
