If you are in the military that is the bulk of your job, but you still have a brain and if you are given an illegal order, you don't follow it. Face the consequences, but honor your self and your country

This is un-American, not just un-patriotic.

The mark of a robot, or a fascist or a crypto- fascist. If you come across one of these "VE.. VILL... HAVE.. OR-DAH!" types, start running...This foul attitude has caused more different kinds of misery for the human race since recorded history began than could fit in 14,984 of these comment boxes.

Very un-American.Our Country was founded by rebels.The "conservative" stance around 1776 was loyalty to the British Crown!!! The great thing about America has always been the right of the people to change the Government if we see fit to do so.Anything less is flirting with fascism.

but butt butt Rush L. sean H. bill o. and ann coultier tell us it's patriotic to not question bush in any way. If bush says he MUST punish wilson by outing his cia wife and weakening our ability to protect ourselves then we should just believe him. after all why should wilson expose the truth without being punished? We should have our brains go to sleep like the obedient right (not correct) wing listeners do.

That is called blind faith and blind faith in authority can get you killed.

This is a rediculous idea, and I think you would be hard pressed to find someone who says that without following authority unquestioningly, you can't be patriotic.

No. That's what it means to be a domestic farm animal or slave. We are suppose to have choices. I suggest you exercise and defend that capability with gusto!

Two words: ignorance and fascism.

Of course, unquestioning obedience to authority is a destructive quality in any society, but somehow this trait implicitly seems to be among those traits that conservatives really mean when they talk about (their version of) patriotism: How dare these liberals question the president in a time of war? We need to support our president! War has a lasting impact on a country. We have every right to question it. It would be wrong not to ask a president, any president, to justify and clearly make the case for any war he or she wishes to engage our troops in.

You should always question authority, but in a manner where it is done respectfully and tastefully.

No way! I got promoted to Corporal over a year late because I had too many questions. If I hadn't been good at what I did my tude would have kept me away from any rank at all. I got sent a couple visitors for my mouth. I punted them.

I would tend to want to ask questions of why are we being asked to follow these rules. I guess that is supposed to be a perk of having the freedom of speech.

Blind obedience leads to bad juju, if you read your history lessons. There are times when it is right and necessary to stand up and say That's wrong, and I won't do it.

On the contrary, it is our duty as Americans to question authority.

Strangely, I have talked to many people who see this as the definition of patriotism--when the authority is the Government.

Clearly, this is what authority has in mind.
