    A lot of us swore that at once. Do you still believe it?

    When it violates the constitution.

    I'm not advocating anything illegal on my part or the part of others as there are legal means to stop things. Just curious....

    The oath taken upon enlistment in the US Military states FIRST that you will support and defend the CONSTITUTION. Then SECOND you will obey orders, etc.

    Also, there is no time limit on the oath. I happened to take that oath 6 times. I have not renounced the oath, and my honor demands I continue to obey it. My enlistment contracts had a time limit, but the oath did not.

    It may be less well known, but Civilian Employees must take an oath of office which is essentially
    the same as the military Officer's Oath. 5 U.S.C. 3331
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I guess our "leaders" must have had their fingers crossed when they took it.

    Didnt you know? The liberal officials replaced the word oath with "pinkie swear" in the handbook. Whens the last time you saw a government official sworn in using a pinkie swear?? If they dont do a pinkie swear then it dont count
