Who is the Military Loyal to?

From our friend Mark:

A soldier's oath includes "... will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the president of the United States ... "

Now if Birthers can't disprove his legitimacy to be the Commander-in-Chief, then I have a serious question. If the domestic enemy is the President due to his policies, czars, affiliations, agenda, etc. (look at the big picture), then would the military's true faith and allegiance be for the American people regardless of the orders of the president of the United States? What if the American people pleaded for the military to help us against this oppression? Where would their loyalties be?

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

This raises some interesting questions. I would hope that the military would defend the constitution and the American people from any threat, including domestic powers that would seek to defile the constitution. That said, who makes that decision? Who has that power? Could use of that power, lead to abuse of that power? It is a very complicated scenario.

Thanks Mark!
