About that Marine who was “less than honerably” discharged.
First, I had to check four major news sources before I could find what the Marine actually said. The UK news, MSNBC and the WSJ all just quoted his “Screw Obama” bit (Yahoo News came through). But what counts is the bit about the Oath;
But U.S. District Judge Marilyn Huff refused to intervene, saying the military had the discretion to discipline Stein after he stated he would not follow all the orders of the president.
She said that message read: “As an active-duty Marine, I have sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Obama is the economic enemy, the religious enemy, the domestic enemy.”
Stein has served nearly nine years…
I can see the judge’s position. He said he would not follow “some” orders, so she kicked it back to the military.
Anyway, it puts you in a sort of pickle when you take that Oath, doesn’t it? So all you who’ve taken it have a question to ask yourselves every single day. Do you follow all orders, no matter what, OR do you defend and protect the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic?
With a communist in the Whitehouse, what are your options? The Devil (so to speak) has you by the neck. You’re damned if you do, damned of you don’t. I don’t think we want a coup on our hands, but we don’t want a communist giving orders either. Stein’s problem was that he posted about his obvious conundrum on Facebook. Best to get out, maybe? But then you’ll only be replaced with someone who doesn’t have a problem following order from a communist, and that’s not good at all (how long before the Oath is changed to one that gives alliagence only to the commander in chief?). As I say; Pickle.
