The Duty of Congress

The 4th Amendment of the Constitution reads:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

For reference, here is the Oath of Office sworn by all members of Congress:

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.

The Oath is for the defense of the Constitution. It is not for some nebulous threat of danger, real or imagined, to the safety of the People. The greatest threat to the People of this country today is our own government. I encourage our Congress to recognize this, and do what they can to restore the Republic.

Those who have heroically exposed the illegal actions of our government against not only our citizens but people in many nations must be protected from retribution and exempted from prosecution. An individual who exposes actions that are clearly and plainly against our highest law and founding principles has committed no crime. The criminals are the ones who created a structure that systematically ignores our rights. Those rights preceed not only our government but all governments, and apply not to US citizens but to all people in all nations - God has no nationality.

To this end, a massive investigation must be undertaken. The entirety of Congress - ALL members of the House and Senate - must be fully informed of the actions undertaken by the Executive Branch. An open debate of the merits of these various programs must be held. Those who have supported legislation in the past that created this mess need to publicly repent of their actions, now. It is time for them to lead the charge to repeal this madness.

Restore the right of the People to be "secure in their person, houses, papers, and effects." Reveal the evil that has been done by those who would violate the rights of all of us. Punish the guilty, without favor or fear of their office. Purge this corruption from our nation and begin to rebuild faith in our institutions.

This is not about Democrats or Republicans. This is about what it means to be an American. Do the right thing.

The 14th amendment, Section 3

Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

I think it is time we expel anyone who voted for any of these unconstitutional programs; doesn't matter if they are R or D.

Mighty mountains in grandeur stand, but tiny raindrops turn them to sand! Noah, I think I just felt a raindrop!!

EXCELLENT!

I think I'm going to start naming names and pointing fingers, at least in my state.
