Do you think that lying about receiving certain military medals and awards should be constitutionally protected as free speech?

Yes, free speech means just that, and banning lying about medals would create a bad precedent.

Yes, while I disagree with military imposters, no one is actually harmed by their lies.

No, the constitution was not intended to allow individuals to use fraud and deceit to sell a product or a cause.

No, every time one of these phonies shows up claiming an award to which he is not entitled, it steals from those who earned the honor.

Honor, Duty, Country, a concept that seems to be missing in this individual.

We had a guy in the post who told stories of Vietnam that seemed to be right out of one those books about the war. As he got older and the stories became Audie Murphy like, information was requested regarding his Vietnam record. It was found that he had never served out of country, had a honorable medical discharge from the Army after 9 months service, and no combat experience except in line in the PX. What did him in was his comment about being spit on by protesters at Travis Air Base.

In this day and age where we are more worried about whether terrorists are getting proper treatment and are to be given a trial in civilian courts to "protect their rights". It's amazing how everybody is worried about making sure that their rights are protected, but could care less about the ones in uniform that REALLY protected their rights. If the courts say that this dirt pile has the "right" to lie about nonexistent military service, we should give him so many "rights" he begs for a "left".

You find liars such as these who have imaginary military service and must lie about what they wish they would have as well as those at the top of our government who use the liar approach to achieve their power grab desires and build on their egos.

Absolutely NO SUPPORT for their kind can be given!
