    If you don't like what America is becoming, you are free to leave.
    Luckily our forefathers didn't have such a cowardly attitude as yourself, and decided to rebel against the tyranny they lived under.

    So you're really telling me that even if the government were committing genocide against their own citizens, the military should just keep following orders? You realize cowardice like yours gave us the holocaust, right?

    Our founders did not engage in a military coup. Reread your history. We divorced from England, and that divorce sure wasn't legal at the time, but it was categorically not a coup.

    You do realize that due to the subject matter, this thread has probably already been flagged by the TSA, right? Man, would you have some explaining to do if you were, shall we say, "interviewed" about it...

    nice quibble. one of the best ones I've seen in a while.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Any oath that holds someone to the service of the state even if that means going against the interest of the people is unfit and not worth upholding.

    The government does not have the right to rule over the people and the people always maintain the right to destroy it whenever they deem it fit. No oath to the government can forfeit this right.

    Quibbling with words is fun...but you are right. It wasnt a 'coup'...but it also damn sure wasnt a 'divorce'. It was an outright violent and open rebellion by citizens which ended in the forced ousting of a despotic government, replaced then by a government of the citizens choosing.

    You might want to familiarize yourself with 18 USC Chapter 115.

    Given the nature of this thread I'd particularly direct your attention to § 2385 :

    Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States...
    Which, essentially, you're doing:

    Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
    I mean, I doubt you'll be prosecuted for it, but in point of fact you just committed a felony.

    So are you ignoring the question, or sticking with your answer? You believe that if the government were committing genocide against its people, the military should continue obeying orders.

    After all, to you, there is NEVER a scenario where a coup would be justified, right?

    So? You have any idea how many times I have committed that felony in my lifetime? Lets just say a lot. I never agreed to anything with the government and I have no reason to respect some law put in place to maintain their rule. The great thing about treason charges is that they essentially only serve the state.
