Oath of Office - betrayed

What oath does a President take? Congressmen? Military officers?
Can someone post these here?

What should we do about these myriads of oath-breakers?

Hey, Ron Paul, call out the bums

on violating their oath.

Technically,

the President hasn't broken his office. He is a moron. What has happened has happened according to the best of HIS ABILITY. He is incompetent, not able to execute the office, so technically he hasn't broken the office. At least, that is how I see it, albeit somewhat comically.

As for the other positions, that is obviously more complicated, but either way technically it is always a blurry line because a point of view is a prerequisite to the argument of whether the oath was broken.

LOL

Touche! :-D

c'mon...

technically, bush has taken a dump on the Constitution for reasons that don't square with reality. he's mislead the American people in an effort to forward his own distorted, globalist agenda. make no excuses for him.

oh, and you're exactly right. he is an incompetent moron.

Military Enlistment

I, (state your full name), do solemnly swear 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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

That was the oath I took- one not taken lightly. There is a slightly different oath you take when you become a commissioned Officer. I can't vouch for that one though as I was never an Officer.

oath of enlistment and oath for commissioned officers

The wordings of the current oath of enlistment and oath for commissioned officers are as follows:

"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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

Officers' oath

Was it missed or do officers not swear to obey the orders of the President of the United States?? Do officers swear only to obey the Constitution? If this is accurate, I think it is a very interesting point. . . . .

Did you hear McCain at one of the recent debates

claim that when he entered the Naval Academy, he "took an oath to uphold and defend the nation," not the Constitution. I was screaming at the TV.

See this youtube

3:43 I don't know whether Ron Paul can use this or not, but it made me angry.

Amen!

Get rid of all the oath-breaking bums. Wherever they are.
They have probably never read the Constitution!

Congressmen

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.

Enemies - foreign and

domestic. Shouldn't we be more concerned about domestic enemies serving in elected positions or in the military?

far as I can see, those who

far as I can see, those who have broken their 'oath of office' ARE domestic enemies!

Exactly!

Defend the Constitution or quit!
