Tough decisions….Or, who are the enemies of the constitution?

The oaths begin the same way….

Enlisted men’s oath
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;…. “

Officer’s oath
“I, _____ , having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic…..”

Both of these oaths state that the taker of the oath “will defend and support the constitution. So what does a military man do when the people giving orders (the lawfully elected and sworn government) may well be the domestic enemies of the state? When the president (and congress) has trampled on the constitution (and I am not just talking about the current president, lest there be any question about that)? When the government from which they take their orders is the entity destroying and violating the constitution which they swore to defend.

I ask because I am not sure how the members of the military can follow orders of the president, or not depose the Senate or the House members…They (the government officials) have become the enemies against which the military has sworn to defend…

Make no mistake, I am glad that they don’t. But, they do have justification…..

What would you do if you were a general? The right thing? or follow the leaders who have violated the very thing you swore to defend?
