    That is a fact. Whether you like it or not.

    Check it out: United States Armed Forces oath of enlistment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I knew this without looking it up because I served in the U.S. Regular Army for 6 years and I am somewhat liberal.

    You are out of touch with reality.

    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 and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

    troops obey their officers, and Obama ain't president much longer.

    But imagine the precedents at power grabbing he initiated, but in the hands of, and enlarged upon, by a "conservative" president!

    I will enjoy your rage!

    The enlisted oath is to obey the "office" of the president. Not a renegade individual. Orders come down the chain of command. Unlikely many military enlisted would receive DIRECT orders from any president.

    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    The military is we conservatives, and sworn to uphold and defend the constitution.

    Nobody swears allegiance to any politician in THIs country's military.

    Obama will be President of the USA until he is replaced by another Democrat in 2017.

    Until then he will be telling the U.S. Military what to do and they will be saluting him and doing it.

    Deal with it.

    I doubt that President Christie will change his party affiliation.

    It's a standard, piece of bull****, GOP talking point.

    As things stand now(and lordy is that a big caveat), it seems unlikely Christie would get the nomination.

    I'm not having a problem with the US military.

    I'm a Viet Nam vet.

    I don't WANT the USA to fall apart.

    I'm concerned that the road to perdition the USA is traveling WILL destroy the USA.

    My point is, socialists CAN NOT STEAL this country.

    Not while we have arms. and they obviously KNOW this, since they strive mightily to disarm us. THAT ain't happening.

    The only way that Christie will ever see the inside of the White House is as a visitor.

    Wait and see.

    Not these types of issues. History shows no such thing. History shows us that when it comes to what is considered "rights" for groups of people, support only increases until it reaches point, well above 90% support, where change beyond that is going to go very slow if it happens at all. But it is not likely to turn back.

    This issue is nothing like abortion, and I know that is the issue many want to use in comparison. This issue is like interracial marriage, as far as being able to compare it to an issue like it in the past.

    Yes, liberals join the military, as do independents.
