I respect where you are coming from, but when we have a Government operating in open defiance of he US Constitution, it complicates matters.
Is the President actually eligible to be in office? The fact that none of the branches.of Government has held him accountable demonstrates that they disregard the law. We have a DOJ that sends arms to the drug cartel in Mexico, and no one is accountable. We allow hoards to invade this country and we aren't allowed to call those actions illegal. We even allow 'Sanctuary Cities' to exist to harbor these invaders. We have a DOJ that selectively applies the law depending on one's skin color. And we have a Government that is aiding the same gang that has been at war with us since 9/11/2001 (if not earlier). To wit, we've supported the Al Queda factions in Libya, Egypt, and now Syria.

I understand what you are saying, but these are unique times and I agree with these protests. There is a chain of command, but when the top of the chain is a lawless bunch that has demonstrated their utter disregard for the Constitution and the law - things are different.

I agree and disagree with you both in that if I were in these soldiers places I’d either shut up and follow orders or tell obozo to go feck himself sans disguise.

Agree completely with family serving in the military....At what point do you stop following a known traitor of this country and it’s constitution (his actions have demonstrated this)....These are different times whereas Obama never would have been elected, and if so would have been removed a long time ago it this were 1945 or even 1965.....

When the King of England issued a royal decree that was regular in its form, and in line with the way the King usually issues orders and decrees, who were the Americans to dispute what the King has validly ruled? After all, the King’s rights were divinely given to him, and therefore, the King could do no wrong.

This works well with organizations that are authority based and only work well when there are no debates in the lower ranks.

But at some point the Colonists said,”Enough is Enough!”

They no longer obeyed the rules of the King.

What is that point for us, in this century?

Who determines the validity of a law when the public disputes the authority of government, and the courts, the executive, and the legislative branches have all decided to ignore the Constitution?

The answer is that the people are allowed to overrule their government.

But half of the population now thinks that their rights come from government, so dispute is not permitted.

The other have are largely quiescent, and will not fight for, or even acknowledge the risk to their rights.

This leaves a minority of people to reassert the rights of the people to dispute the government.

We must all decide for ourselves when enough is enough. Then we must all decide what we will each do about it.

We will continue to fight unjust wars, for illicit purposes, as long as the duty to obey is the primary rule of importance.

I long for the day when freedom is the rule of primary importance.

Serious question: Did none of King George’s soldiers join the Patriots?
