1) We are not required to follow unlawful orders, regardless of who gives them.

2) We are required to follow the orders of the POTUS, whether we like it or not. That’s the game we signed up for. ETS if you don’t like it.

The oath also includes vowing to ‘support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic’.

If the Constitution and the POTUS-apparent clash, what do you do?

I just joined his fan page:

Armed Forces Tea Party
http://www.facebook.com/ArmedForcesTeaParty

...and put in a request to join his personal group on facebook.

He has indicated he will not follow unlawful orders from this President. There is nothing wrong with that statement. Every one in the military is obligated to not follow unlawful orders. He is merely reciting the policy of the military.

They are just mad because he specifically states he will not follow them from Obama, and that he has set up a facebook page to talk about it.

I advised him to contact and join up with:

Oathkeepers, Guardians of the rpeublic

That’s the game we signed up for. ETS if you don’t like it................................... So, hypothetically, if you are given orders to round up everyone, including your family, in your neighborhood, and put them in cattle cars for “relocation”, you would ETS? I know its an extreme example, but had many in Germany refused to do it in the 40’s, maybe many lives would have been saved.

Some people are foolish, especially younger people, and will sign anything without fully understanding. Young people are taken advantage of, all the time.

Only lawful orders from the POTUS must be followed.

So how do you reconcile not following unlawful orders with following the unlawful orders of the POTUS?
