It also enables them to manipulate facts and add some odious conclusions to justify their existence. Power corrupts . . .

I am so thankful to the U.S. military and the men and women that have served and to those that even sacrificed their lives that people can make claims of "odious conclusions to justify their existence. Power corrupts."

Where would this Country be without them? We would be another Country occupied and controlled by Russia, Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan, for starters. It is these men and women and our military that enable us to live in a free society, that guarantee our ability to live by our Constitution and enjoy the rights that it guarantees us.

Maybe it is time to thank then rather than to condemn them. If we want to discuss corruption, then look close at the current Administration and there is a lot to question. When an oath to uphold the Constitution is ignored, that is corruption. When one branch of the government ignores the boundaries that the Constitution gives it, that is corruption. So in this, there is the claim that power corrupts, just the wrong area being labeled in this manner.
