In an open letter, more than 120 retired U.S. military generals and admirals warned that the United States is amidst an existential fight, urging all citizens to get involved in local and state politics before it’s too late.
“We are in a fight for our survival as a 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,” the letter reads.
Signed by 124 former military leaders, the letter said that opposition to proposed bills and laws that would strengthen election initiatives has troublesome implications.
“Election integrity demands ensuring there is one legal vote cast and counter per citizen,” the letter continues. “Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc. Today, many are calling such commonsense controls ‘racist’ in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections.”
According to the group’s website, dubbed “Flag Officers 4 America,” they are former military leaders who “pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,” both domestic and foreign, the Epoch Times reports.
“China is the greatest external threat to America. Establishing cooperative relations with the Chinese Communist Party emboldens them to continue progress toward world domination, militarily, economically, politically, and technologically. We must impose more sanctions and restrictions to impede their world domination goal and protect America’s interests,” the letter adds.
Other threats noted include reentering the Iran nuclear deal, illegal immigration and halting the Keystone XL Pipeline.
“We must support and hold accountable politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism, support our Constitutional Republic, and insist on fiscally responsible governing while focusing on all Americans, especially the middle class, not special interest or extremist groups which are used to divide us into warring factions,” the letter reads.
