The apolitical military

There are good reasons that the military should be apolitical in public, and as political as it wants in the voting booth.

Politics Daily reports:

The Army will court martial a lieutenant colonel who refuses to deploy to Afghanistan because he won’t accept orders from President Obama, whom he considers unqualified to be commander in chief, military officials said Wednesday.

OC Weekly reports:

​Gary Stein, a 24-year-old active duty Marine Corps sergeant based at Camp Pendeton, created his own Tea Party group, then announced its arrival on the national Tea Party scene in a press release.

Two days later, some of his "brothers" are calling for a court martial.
