    The short answer is no, but it is not the current government that soldiers airman, marines, and sailors fight and die for. It is the Constitution of The United States. It is for the assurance of our way of life, and the defense of our countrymen, and for the US many others throughout the world. The particular government is not ever the question, it is the US as a whole, since (and I speak from the heart of some one who has been serving in one way or another almost all of my adult life), governments come and go, things and people change but the Constitution is the foundation and the the ideal worth dying for.

    Is America worth dying for?  Yes!  Our way of life, which includes our system of government is worth preserving at all costs.  However, to ask if our government per se is worth dying for, the answer is definitely "No."

    NO, the United States Government has become the 'Storm Troopers' of the Wealthy and of the powerful corporations...
    A truly sad state of affairs indeed.

    The U.S. Constitution, the ideals stated there-in, and the lives and safety of 'We the People' however are worth defending and even dying for.

    Perhaps we should know who the enemy is that we are fighting against. It is harder to make the enemy die when they are us.

    The government is NOT worth dying for if your asking- would I die for the ones running our government? Hell no!

    Would I die trying to protect a man, woman or child from our government- Hell yes.

    But there are many who are dying every day by the deception of our government in other countries-

    It is written- Wisdom is better than war.

    I guess that is something presidents never had.

    So far that I have seen :

    War = Power, Control & Greed and the government uses people--> spilling blood of babies, children,mothers, fathers and so forth in every place over something they want. It isn't just the American Soldiers who are spilling blood by deception.

    Yes, our country and Constitution are always worth fighting for whether that's by voting or taking up arms.

    The U.S. military swears an oath to defend this country and its Constitution. Presidents and Congresses will come and go but the U.S. Constitution is the constant, the foundation of our government.

    For freedom, YES. For the rich and the corrupt, NO.

    Duty is something that is sorely lacking in today's society. The millions that have spilled their blood for freedom and liberty is something that cannot be wasted. The government today is the same government that was in place during President Lincoln's term as was the same during Teddy and FDR's terms. It doesn't change! While we might not care for the current administration, that should be taken care of at the ballot box, not on the battle field. We as American's must always be prepaired in our hearts and minds to serve those millions that came before us and that precious document known as " The Constitution of the United States of America".
