Who CAN be a Domestic Enemy of the Constitution?Submitted by dwalters on Wed, 06/26/2013 - 15:11
This is a very important question to ask:
Who can be a domestic enemy of the Constitution?
Recall, all people who are (s)elected to government or serve in the armed forces take an oath to "defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic."
The Constitution of the united States is a document that makes rules for the government. The Constitution establishes no limits on the actions of citizens except for the special case of treason. The people can speak out against the Constitution, burn copies of the Constitution, wipe their rears with copies of the Constitution, etc, and the Constitution would have nothing against any of those actions.
So, to answer the question, only those people in government - with the exception of treason - can act as domestic enemies of the Constitution.
When people take an oath to protect the Constitution from domestic enemies, they are taking an oath to act against anyone in government who seeks to subvert that founding document.
Is anyone going to take their oath seriously? Now would be a high time to act.
