    Treason

    Why are we allowing members of Congress to destroy this country? Did not each and every person elected to the United States Congress, take an oath to uphold the Declaration of Independence? To protect it from all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
    I believe we must take a stand and charge any and all members of Congress with Treason when they try to circumvent the Constitution.
    I believe this could be a great legal stance to protect the Second Amendment.
    What do you think?

    Think that maybe in a million years it may work.

    Think about it, Hanoi Jane was not tried for treason and she directly assisted our enemy while they were shooting down our countrymen. She did this openly and with full knowledge of her actions.

    An American is caught fighting against Americans in Afghanastan, and that is not treated as treason either.

    Face it any and all punishment for treason is a thing of the past. If they refuse to label such things as they are when it is clear, do you really think they would call out members because of different interpitations of the DoI?

    And a second thing WE have the power to change the make up of the Government every 2 years and do not often do so (House of Rep.), instead worrying about who the next president will be 4 years down the road.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Jim - welcome.

    Careful on this tho as it is policy on CC to not go into deep politics. I doubt we can go into this much without running foul of our rules.

    I don't agree with a lot of what members of Congress do, but our democracy is better than anything else. The vote is quicker. Treason ? No, except for fonda.

    They did not and do not swear an oath to uphold the Declaration of Independence. Sorry I'm that guy.

    As for charging them with treason. By all means. Have at it.

    Jim,

    first of all, welcome. Second... it might be prudent to introduce yourself first, poke around the forum, and engage in meaningful discussion before firing off a salvo.

    Just a thought.

    When the Declaration of Independence was signed, there was no Congress.

    That was simply a declaration to the King of England that we would no longer pay taxes to him or be subject to him. In the Kings mind, all that signed it or even agreed with it were quilty of treason.

    All of the the ones that participated are dead.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
