Recently a young soldier was upset enough to contact Politichicks.tv in regards to a survey he was asked to take in his official capacity. This isn’t just any survey and definitely not something you would expect to be filling out when you just signed up to defend and protect the sovereignty of your beloved country and her citizens with your very life if called upon! So just what is this survey? This military questionnaire is not new and has been quietly lurking around since the Clinton years, waiting for the time when it can be fully played out and reap its usefulness. I believe that time is now. The timing is something of a magnitude in which I now feel deserves the full attention of the American people considering we have a sitting President who rules by executive order and has openly declared gun control as one of his top priorities of the new year. Add in the facts that Obama and his administration is cutting defense spending while giving more power to the UN and building up alternate civilian forces as he is trying to unarm the American people and we can see we are heading for a perfect storm.
This particular survey was first given in 1995 right after the “Clinton Weapons Ban” and was passed out to a few hundred Marines in 29 Palms, California. This was not done by the Pentagon but according to an article in New American Magazine in October of 1995 written by John F. McManus, this survey was supposedly part of an academic project by Navy Lt. Ernest Guy Cunningham. Not surprisingly the survey alarmed many of the Marines and copies soon were circulated among gun rights supporters. Cunningham quickly told McManus that he himself is a member of the NRA and didn’t agree with the tone of the questions that the survey was only intended to confirm and then pass on to the higher authorities his fears about “the lack of knowledge among the soldiers regarding the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and their heritage as Americans.” I wonder what type of grade he earned for such a useful and overused questionnaire. Sounds like the way they cover their tracks even today! Always make the wrong sound right.
Here are two of the questions in the survey; please consider the importance:
Strongly agree/Disagree/Agree Strongly/Agree/No Opinion
45: I would swear to the following code: “I am a United Nations fighting person. I serve in the forces which maintain world peace and every nation’s way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.”
(___) (___) (___)
Strongly agree Disagree Agree Strongly
Agree No Opinion
46: The U.S. government declares a ban on the possession, sale, transportation, and transfer of all non‑sporting firearms. A thirty (30) day amnesty period is permitted for these firearms to be turned over to the local authorities. At the end of this period, a number of citizen groups refuse to turn over their firearms. Consider the following statement: I would fire on U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government?
(___) (___) (___)
Do you wonder how most of our military answered these questions? Does this chill you to your core? It should! You can read the full survey here: http://thenewalexandrialibrary.com/armysurvey.html
Next time you hear people say it is okay to give up our guns to make a safer America, or that it is ok that the TSA treats us as lesser beings than cattle, or even that it is a good thing for the DHS to train our police forces on how to control urban situations against “home grown terrorists”, remind them that they are the reason our freedoms are dissipating before our very eyes. Thank God in Heaven we still have our Vets and brave military men and women who want us to open our eyes and see what is going on in the ranks of our “protectors”.
