Let me preface this by saying that I voted for Obama... and then, less than six months later, in the same manner as Bush the first time around, I
regretted having done so. Now it's to the point where I cringe every time something bad happens because I know that his ineptitude and lack of true
leadership will only stand to make a situation worse.
That being said, if there is a military coup in this country, the United States and every principle she was founded on is dead. Let me say that again
for those of you delusional enough to think this could work or in some way would be a good thing: If there is a military coup in this country the
United States and every principle she was founded on is DEAD.
Constitutionally, the armed forces serve at the pleasure of the President, who in turn (and in theory) serves at the pleasure of those who voted him
into office. Give the military a taste of political power and they'll want more. It's sets a horrifying precedent that I guran-damn-tee you will be
repeated. Look at every other country on Earth that's suffered through a military upheaval of this nature and then tell me how well it will work
If you hate him, write your representative and push for impeachment. Vote him out in 2012. Engage in passive resistance or civil disobedience... in
the worst case scenario, a civil resistance movement that I promise will have elements
of military support, whatever.
But an open coup staged by the military and/ or the JCoS in this country is the single worst idea in the long, sad history of worst ideas.
