28th Amendment to the Constitution

How about a constitutional amendment that says:

"anyone elected to a public office or in the armed forces who unknowingly violates their oath to uphold the Constitution, upon conviction, shall be sentenced to 15 years in a federal prison, and anyone elected to a public office or in the armed forces who knowingly violates their oath to uphold the Constitution shall, upon conviction, shall be sentenced to death.

Julius is this part of Jim Kirwan's article about Usury? ... it is very good. That is a topic I would like to hear more of from Dr. Paul.

The Enumerated Powers Act

The Enumerated Powers Act would be very beneficial for the same purpose.

If we had been following the Constitution, we would not.....

need this amendment!! All the amendments in the world will not matter if none of them are followed!

You're obviously well-meaning, but..

...The problem isn't that there are inadequate punishments for those who trod upon and trample the Constitution; the problem is that no one will enforce it.

We already have Impeachment, and it's ineffective--after 220 years, not one President has been impeached and subsequently removed from office. And we've had some doozies. If we can't even take a President out, because the system is too corrupt to enforce constitutional law, what makes you think anyone will start sending officials to jail for unknowingly violating their Oath of Office?

The problem is that Justice belongs to whomever has the most guns and bombs. The government creates ridiculously anti-constitutional laws and edicts, and the public just looks away, knowing that nothing can be done about it.

Hold on a moment...

Have they gotten to you, too, Kevin? You said, "...and the public just looks away, KNOWING that nothing can be done about it." (emphasis added)

If we KNOW nothing can be done, then we have quit. Many BELIEVE nothing can be done, but then there are some true constitutionalists who BELIEVE something can be done and are trying to do something about it.

I'm not saying you're that way, Kevin, I'm just pointing out as kindly as I can that the way you worded your statement shows the opposition is affecting us in ways we don't even notice until someone points it out. I hope you do not take this wrongly. I have great respect for you and appreciate many of your posts, but this just jumped out at me and I thought it worth pointing out.

I hope all of us can keep up the hope that we will be heard and people will wake up. Though I have many doubts, I still have hope and will continue to work to spread the message of freedom.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

If we are going to have an amendment...

I would like to have one that states that individuals are allowed to secede from the rule of the government (state secession is too difficult!).

But, I think Kevin is entirely correct. Which person in the government is going to make sure these amendments get enforced?
