Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. Thomas Jefferson
Some people in the USA, on the left and the right would like to pick which parts of the Constitution that they like, enforce those parts to the hilt and ignore the rest.
But that's not the way that the U.S. Constitution was designed to work and that's not the way that the U.S. Supreme Court interprets the constitution.
Goes back to the OP. If it is 'wrong' for the military to oust a corrupt and unconstitutional government then it be equally wrong for a single citizen to do the same.
And for the record...as I said earlier in this thread...I believe we are neither at risk of a military coup, nor does the current government new the criteria for overthrow.
Sorry, but in case you missed it, Barack Obama is the duly elected president of the US. Your party had its shot and you lost.
Show some respect for the will of the people, which is fundamental precept of our way of governance. A real American would lick his wounds and put up a better candidate next time. Many of us had to bite our tongues for eight years of the GW Bush administration. We had to bite particularly hard at his numerous apparent Constitutional encroachments and tramplings. We did not take up arms, we endured and plotted. Our revolution involved finding a better candidate that could actually win the White House. That is the way it works in this country. You should learn to respect the will of the people, especially when its not your will.

My God, some of you people in this thread are so ridiculously anti-Obama it's become an obsession.
I get that you don't like the guy, I get that he hasn't implemented policies you'd like implemented, and I even get that he has a different political ideology from you.
He is still your rightfully elected President, and the treasonous talk of staging a military coup and throwing him out because you don't like him borders on the offensive.
