Socialists Democrat majority in the house is trying yet another end run around the rule of law in order to get their Holy Grail Health Care Reform passed. Ok, I can understand this. It is imporant to them and their ideology. I get that. It is the only way they can promote Socialism equality in this country.They have chosen to work on this to the detriment of the country, ignoring our economic crisis, and the fact that their pending (but failing) legislation is even now stalling an economic recovery. They simply don’t seem to care about the consequences to the country of this vaporware bill.
But in proposing to ignore the Constitution and the Senate and House rules, they are, in effect, conspiring to break the rule of law, and conspiring to break the oath that they swore when they were elected and sworn in as congressmen and representatives:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God”
Can we, therfore, arrest them for conspiracy to break their oath and for conspiring to violate the Constitution? Were I to conspire with you to rob a bank or overthrow the government, and we were found out, we could be charged with a crime, even if we never acted upon such discussions. What about the Senators, Representatives, and President who are indeed conspiring to violate the Constitutional laws by which our Congress works?
Seriously though….Why can these folks in the
ruling class legislative branch be charged with such a conspiracy. It is reported by many news agencies and in their own words.
(I, personally, think we should charge them with treason….YMMV)
