Some in the military know their enemy.

There is no 'Constitutional duty to take out the President'. The Constitution gives specific ways a president can be removed- by election or by impeachment. This 'take out' talk is third world crap. I can't stand the President any more than the next guy, but an attack on the President is an attack on the office and the Constitution. It isn't fulfilling any duty- it is a crime.

But the Constitution does say after a long train of usurpations, it is the DUTY of Americans to throw off such government.  It doesn't say by ballot because I'm certain they knew that kind of reaction to the government wasn't going to be a "kinder and gentler" removal.  It would be nice to see them roll into D.C. and take the whole rotten mess to Gitmo, however, like any other terrorists. :patriot:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Paging General James Mattoon Scott -- please pick up the nearest courtesy phone, your leadership services are required...

If you haven't ever watched "Seven Days In May", it's worth your time to do so.

I believe it may be seen on YouTube...

Absolutely.  We got the President we deserved - "we" as a nation - and we got him because we willingly chose him; if we're to change that, then we have to do it through the same Constitutional methods we used to get him in the first place.
