Embrace The Lies?

This sacred obligation to defend the peaceful transfer of power has been honored by every American president, except one. ...  

Standing on the east front of the United States Capitol on a snowy morning in 1961, President Kennedy said: 

"In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger."

Today, that role is ours as we face a threat we have never faced before -- a former president attempting to unravel our constitutional republic.  At this moment we must all summon the courage to stand against that.  The question for every one of us is in this time of testing, will we do our duty?  Will we defend our Constitution?  Will we stand for truth?  Will we put duty to our oath above partisan politics?  Or will we look away from danger, ignore the threat, embrace the lies, and enable the liar?
