My polite email to my Senator concerning 1388Submitted by Alaskan on Fri, 03/27/2009 - 16:35
I had already written my one representative and let him know my view on his 1388 yea. Do they ever read these things? Probably not.
To the Honorable Mark Begich,
On the home page of your website is a picture of you taking the oath of office for the United States Senate.
When you took your seat in the Senate you swore to the following oath:
"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."
Your yea on HR 1388 was a blatant violation of you oath. This bill is rife with unconstitutional elements and is an offense to those who believe in the rule of law upon which this country was founded.
If you are unaware of the unconstitutional elements please feel free to call me and I will explain them to you. If were aware of the conflict yet voted yea anyways I ask you to apologize to the people of Alaska and step down for violating the oath you publically declared.
