Disrespect in the Military
If you question the authority of our President, Barak Obama, as your Commander in Chief then please take off the uniform of my father.
You are not fit to wear it if you only respect republican presidents. You are not an American Hero you are an American embarassment!
Take off the uniform and go back to being a nobody. I don't want any phony serviceman pretending to represent my country.
If you want to bash others about not supporting Obama, you really should learn how to spell his name.
The objection to Barack Obama as President has nothing to do with the color of his skin, or the fact that he's not Republican, or even the fact that he has no qualifications for the job. It's not about race or party.
The objection is that he refuses to prove that he is Constitutionally eligible for the office (as John McCain had to do). Why should only one candidate be required to prove he's eligible?
There is considerable credible evidence to suggest that Barack Obama may not meet Constitutional requirements (there are only three). Requiring him to prove that he is eligible to be Commander in Chief (CINC) is the duty of every American.
It is the Constitution that guarantees the freedoms that are uniquely American. Each erosion of the Constitution moves us closer to losing all of those freedoms, including those you have exercised here. Those brave men and women you criticize will spend the Christmas holidays separated from their families, to defend your freedom.
The volunteers wearing the uniform of the United States are not pretenders (with a few exceptions, like the Fort Hood shooter). Suggesting they are is an American embarrassment.
The oath our service members take is to support and defend the
Constitution, NOT the President.
Enlisted members take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and to obey the orders of the President and the officers appointed over them. Officers take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and to well and faithfully discharge the duties of their office. One of those duties includes ensuring that they obey only lawful orders. If the CINC is not eligible to hold that office, then all his orders are unlawful orders.
Barack Obama is the pretender, and there will always be an asterisk by his name, until he proves he is eligible for the office. If not, then his every action as President is null and void. It should offend all Americans that a possible usurper is holding the highest office in the land.
Since you accuse those wearing the uniform of "your" country of being pretenders, perhaps you should volunteer, so you can be sure there's at least one who's not.
We hope you will educate yourself about the heroism that our military members (and their families) display on a daily basis. You will be amazed and immensely proud of those young men and women.
Speaking of being "a nobody," we note that your comments were posted as "Anonymous." If you feel so strongly about your convictions, why hide behind "Anonymous?" Have the courage to have a name, even if it's a made-up one.
It's easy to criticize anonymously. It's not so easy to put on the uniform and go out every day in the face of someone whose goal is to kill you, in order to defend those who ignorantly criticize you. But millions of men and women do just that, for you, every day.
Show a little more respect for them, please. They have certainly earned it.
