Oath of enlistment. Defend the Constitution, Not the President

I, ___________________________________, do solemly 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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed overme, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

The troops have to follow Bush's orders, but they don't have to agree with him and neither do we.

In fact they are sworn to defend our right to disagree, speak out, and assemble in protest. The Constitution explicitly grants us those rights and our troops take an oath to defend those rights.

The Republicans don't have a leg to stand on with this attack on the Constitution. Shame on them.

Demanding that we not criticize the President is an attack on our rights as granted by the constitution. And, as such is an attack on the mission of the United States Military.

Their mission is to defend the Constitution.

Republicans do not care about truth, that is why they still follow a book based on myth.
