Military members have less rights than you do

Even though they endure extreme hardships and sometimes lay down their lives to protect American freedoms and rights, our military members have less rights than ordinary Americans.

According to Department of Defense directives, military personnel on active duty are prohibited from sponsoring a political club, writing anything that solicits votes for a political cause or speaking at any event that promotes a political movement. They may also not participate in any "radio, television, or other program or group discussion as an advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate, or cause" or distribute "partisan political" literature.
