    Well, not really. But if they were ....

    1. Where would YOU stand?
    2. Would you support it?
    3. Which general / admiral would make the best dictator / emperor of the United States?
    4. Should the dictator / emperor wear his military uniform, an expensive suit, or something else (i.e. flashy robes)?

    I hypothesize that 97-98% of Americans would comply with directives.

    We have become a dangerously apathetic, narcissistic, entitled society. People would stand outside on the street watching a TV showing the
    coup and say, they can't do that.

    In that situation, I don't/won't trust anybody. Who would one be able to trust? How would one know who is on what side? I wouldn't trust anybody in any kind of uniform.

    The military all take an oath. The words of that oath do include to defend the Constitution and also to obey the orders of the President of the US. It is a damn shame when those two parts of the oath can conflict. The only honorable thing to do in that case is to resign if you can and do any opposing from the outside in the legal manner. It would take one hell of a harsh conflict in those two parts of the oath for me to feel the character of the military man was high enough to follow. It is all about character. The lack of same in any elected leader is no reason for the military man to lose his.

    I'm not seeing how its a shame when the two conflict, or why one should resign if they do.


    Its fairly simple. The first duty from the oath of enlistment, is to protect the nation, and bear true faith and allegiance. Obeying the President comes after. Should he be acting in a manner that is set to destroy/irrevocably harm the nation, participating in a coup would actually be directly in line with protecting the nation.

    Resign? Hardly.

    you would never get 100% of the military to go along with it. either the Guard/Reserve/ and or some Active units spread across the world would come home or eliminate the rebels in the area.


    in short it would be total war across the United States no way to tell friend from foe and nowhere to run

    So to not resign is more honorable, is adhering to the oath you took? Hardly.

    The first thing to remember about the military is that they are citizens too. I do not expect many of them will take kindly to orders to shoot other citizens unless said citizens are attacking them.

    Any major military leader whose ego led him to believe he should take over the government should give pause to any true patriot. If a revolution is to happen it had better be at the polls and be peaceable. ANY other way and you will be destroying the country in order to maintain it. And if you do not accept that fact then fine, just don't be surprised when your country ceases to exist, at least in any form you will be happy with.
