About the Author
Patrick Murray is a retired US Army colonel. His military career took him out of his native Oklahoma to exotic destinations throughout the world, operating in diverse cultures and missions. He commanded tank units astride the Fulda Gap, staring down Soviet forces just across the border. Soon after, he found himself on the other side of that border, living and working in Moscow for the Defense Intelligence Agency. Patrick worked in numerous US embassies, including as a military attaché in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, during the Balkans conflict. He was part of a military-political exchange program, assigned alongside American diplomats at the State Department in Washington, DC. Later he became the US representative to the Military Staff Committee at the United Nations in New York. During the Iraq War surge of 2007, he deployed to Baghdad. Patrick holds degrees from Oklahoma State University and The Ohio State University, is a graduate of the Command and General Staff College and the Defense Language Institute, where he studied Russian. He has also been a guest lecturer at the Army War College. Patrick often says that there is no statute of limitations on the oath he took to support and defend the Constitution, so after the army, he sought to continue serving the nation in a different venue. He ran for US Congress in Virginia, where he was twice the Republican nominee. Patrick lives and works in Old Town Alexandria, where he enjoys jogging and biking along the Potomac River and volunteers for his pet causes, including the Board of Directors for Virginia Veterans' Affairs and the local Animal Welfare League. He is a writer and political and foreign policy commentator, and is president and CEO of Third Wave Communications.

Our constitution is not broken. It has evolved through interpretations of the Supreme Court, and those interpretations have led us to a place where the founders of our nation feared we would be. Their goal was to keep our country from evolving into a totalitarian state and dictatorship. Unfortunately, due to the extended term of FDR and the court packing, socialist interpretations of the court and related factors, that is what is happening. But that doesn't mean we have to accept it. Mark Levin, for one, is trying to start a national discussion about repairing the damage done to our constitution over the decades.
Paid trolls, like Capiche, who can barely string two sentences together let alone a whole paragraph are not people to be relied upon for advice. Clearly Capiche has an agenda to further wreck the constitution, trying to impress us through the use of big words he knows. Liberal elites always believe they know better than the rest of us how we should live our lives.
Read educated and experienced people, like Colonel Murray, then decide for yourself who is right. The book doesn't cost much and it won't take much of your time to read. When you're done, pass it along to a friend or family member who can benefit by becoming alert and awake to what is happening in our country.
Ironically, he boasts about the military in such lofty terms; a....gasp....government institution. His mention of the "Founders" as this noble entity whose words should be canonized, is also a logical conundrum. Perhaps they assumed that a future country, not controlled by materialism and apathy, would continue the needed amendments in order to enjoy a "more perfect union". Should not the canonization of the US Constitution, which has allowed "government" to become what it is; be looked at as a root cause?
I am glad that we are not still driving model A cars...or using ancient software; because of progress and innovation. Why are laws any different? We are still fighting over the vagueness and inaptness of an out-dated operating system that divides US. The greater blame is on the whole country for it's lack of political will over the last 50 years.....to push for the needed, non-partisan Constitutional and government restructuring....to address the systemic issues..
America, give up the delusion that the greater power is in the people and the elected officials....and stop wasting energy on petty partisanship.
Remember the Constitution sets the boundaries...not the people...nor the governing authorities
laws, well designed or fatally flawed, are way more powerful
