Here is my thinking...the president of this country takes an oath to uphold and protect the constitution, I'm assuming all lawmakers when voted in would have to as well. I don't know for sure, but would think the federal agents would have to as well and I know as a recruit in the US military you have to take an oath to defend the country and the constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. With that said, why isn't anyone bringing up the fact that an assault on any of our rights is directly breaking the oath that these lawmakers take when they enter office? I would also venture to say that some lawmakers including the president could be impeached and convicted of treason (maybe) for trying to take away the rights that the fathers of this country fought to make sure we had. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have fought bled and died to protect the constitution? Is my thinking correct, at least in theory? The people hold the power in this country, isn't that what the fathers of the constitution and this country wanted? Why are Americans giving their rights up? The thought that the people we vote into office are using their powers to harm the people they are supposed to protect makes me sick...I'm moving to Texas, may be America's alimo.
