The interesting part of his postings is his refusal to follow an unlawful order..

Why would the military find fault in following the "correct" military and legal policy?

maybe it was the name of the page.. Armed Forces Tea Party

Marine's Facebook Page Tests Military Rules

The Marine Corps is now looking into whether he violated the military's rules prohibiting political statements by those in uniform and broke its guidelines on what troops can and cannot say on social media. Stein said his views are constitutionally protected.

According to Pentagon directives, military personnel in uniform can't sponsor a political club; participate in any TV or radio program or group discussion that advocates for or against a political party, candidate or cause; or speak at any event promoting a political movement.

"I think that it's been pretty well established for a long time that freedom of speech is one area in which people do surrender some of their basic rights in entering the armed forces,"

so which will hold.. a long established view and military directives or the constitution?
