If the written Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land —as it declares. And IF all public officers are administered a solemn Oath or affirmation to defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Then it makes sense to me when Congress—or the Executive— or even the vaunted Courts stray from their sworn duty 9the example noted here was the so called Czars seen of late) Then that body acting contrary to the clear terms used in the written Constitution rends itself irrelevant—and untrustworthy.No wonder used car salesmen and even certain television Preachers have more credibility than our elected and selected leaders?
