In the U.S., the Constitution *is* the law. So I don't perfectly understand your meaning here,

Unless you're trying to say that a soldier is not bound to follow any order that is unlawful, regardless of said order's constitutionality?
Yes, if the order is unlawful, the constitutionality of said order doesn't matter.

Edit- Also, soldiers operate under a different set of laws and constitutional freedoms then civilians. The UCMJ being a prime example of this fact.

What does Kerry have to do with this?

Barack Obama is a running dog enemy of the People. Having said that, certain rights are given up by those in the military. The right to free speech being one of them. He should have been well aware of that. Discharge, however, is too harsh and unwarrented.

Hmmm. Thousands of people post their opinions on Facebook every day, basically being a good citizen. Do you question their motivation and intent as well, or just those serving in the military. Or those whose opinion you don't agree with.

Fluke was a know nothing "expert" who was put up in a dog and pony show to garner attention.

Unfortunately, some gave her exactly what she wanted.

Did you see her on "The View"?

Fluke has nothing to do with it. Those in the military are limited in their ability to express political opinions on Facebook. That's all there is.
