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.
So.....let me see if I have all this correct. You promised to defend the constitution against who? All enemies? Foreign and domestic? Would those include illegal Mexicans crossing into this country everyday?
And you swore to bear true and faithful allegiance to that 'same' constitution?
And you made this oath while in full possession of all of your mental faculties and in the absence of any intent to evade these responsibilities through subterfuge or any other means?
So precisely who are you?
Apparently....you are a United States Congressman (or senator) and this is the oath that you took when you were sworn into that office to serve the people who elected you. So what happens when you violate that oath? What happens when you abdicate all responsibility to the people who elected you to represent them? What happens when you turn on the people of your state and openly challenge them to be maligned and penalized for attempting to protect themselves and their property from alien invaders?
What happens when you not only violate your oath, but you literally flaunt that violation in the face of the public and all but dare anyone to challenge you over your treasonous actions?
Apparently not a lot happens, aside from the fact that you are given a soap box and a pulpit by a complicit media who evidently sees yous as worthy of exaltation.
AZ governor dismisses threat of economic boycott
Gov. Jan Brewer is dismissing the threat of an economic boycott over the new state immigration law she signed last week.
Appearing Monday at an Arizona Town Hall in Tucson, Brewer said she doesn't believe the law is "going to have the kind of economic impact that some people think it might."
U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a Tucson Democrat, has called for a boycott of convention business for the state and other calls have come for a boycott of Arizona goods, services and tourism because of the nationally controversial immigration law.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that Brewer says outrage over the ability of police to ask people for citizenship documentation will fade. She recalled how another uproar faded when she was secretary of state and rode herd over a requirement that voters show ID at the polls.
Someone might ask....why are we losing the battle of our borders? Someone might ask why the constitution seems to apply to everyone except those that it was intended to protect? Someone might ask who's side these people are on?
Someone might ask a lot of questions that seemingly go unanswered in this country daily. But until the 'people' as a whole begin to ask these questions and then demand both answers and accountability to their country and the constitution? What difference does it make.
The band plays on, and Utopian socialism becomes that much more entrenched into the very fabric of this nation. And as a result, there will come a day when the only recourse will be to tear down and then pick up the tattered remains of what once was that shining city on a hill.
