Oath of Office - U.S. Senate
senate.gov ^

Posted on 04/12/2013 11:58:21 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Upon taking office, senators-elect must swear or affirm that they will "support and defend the Constitution." The president of the Senate or a surrogate administers the oath to newly elected or re-elected senators. The oath is required by the Constitution; the wording is prescribed by law.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Any senator who fails to support and defend the second amendment which most definitely is part of the constitution is a TRAITOR!!

Traitors beware!!

DON'T TREAD ON ME!!

If senators were still basically just ambassadors from state legislators like they were 101 years ago, most of these clowns could just be recalled and replaced.

Jim, well said. I would think these no good dirt bag morons should know this. Ted Cruz is the only one who gets it, along with us Freepers.

We can accuse all we want.

Now, when they actually do not follow the Constitution, what are we going to do about it?

If we sit on our smelly Obamas, it’s worth nothing to sit here and pontificate.

I have been emailing my “representatives” their oath of office since December. I have explained the words to them, and I have demanded they resign since they have violated their oath. So far, no response and no resignations. I guess it is to be expected in the Unconstitution state.

They are TRAITORS as are the enabling media that covers up the crimes and fills the air and print with Leftist propaganda.

Thanks to this site we can and do expose some of them and cause them to lose their jobs.

Sadly, this country is on the brink of CW2. Not certain what will trigger it but we are hanging like a loose tooth.

May GOD save us!

Have to agree with you, our words mean nothing to them as does the constitution or laws.

There ain't going to be a civilized way out of this, that's just a fact now.

I am very discouraged by the actions of my senator (Burr) it is as if Obama has, or should I say does have a got you file on all in congress. There is so much we have on this tyrant alleged president yet won't act, something has to happen soon. I'll be 71 and hope to see justice served before something catches up to me.

All my fellow freepers donate monthly, FR is our site of truth and deserves/requires our support so geter done and donate.

The oath is required by the Constitution..

I'm no constitutional expert but what happens if they break that oath which obviously they are doing? Surely there must be some provision or law where they can be removed from office? If not, then the oath is meaningless. So how do we get them removed and even better removed and prosecuted?

When are the pro gun pro US rallys scheduled?

Ok ,

When is maybe a one luncheon scheduled to timidly speak out against whats happening?

We are walking our kids up the planks and into the cattle cars.

Absolutely nothing. Same for Representatives, Judges, and the President.

That, IMO, is the fatal flaw in the Constitution.

Thank you, Mr. Robinson! By drafting this legislation, the authors have already violated their oaths! Those that have expressed support for this travesty have already violated their oath! They should be removed and jailed as traitors to the Republic. It is no coincidence that the little rotund dictator is acting up in the midst of the political class attempting to disarm the citizens.

The thing is, besides the 2A, these miscreants in DC have violated their oaths time and time again on all the other points, articles and stipulations in the Constitution. They are now inching toward the obliteration of that last tripwire, the 2A.

Prior to the seventeenth, errant senators could be recalled by their states. I think the only way they can be removed now is if they are expelled by their peers. Fat chance. The 17th was the opening for all out treason! And that’s exactly what they’ve been doing for the last 100 years since it was ratified. But it’s all boiling to a head now. When they start trying to disarm we the people, they’re going to get more than they bargained for.

The second amendment is not open to debate, compromise or negotiation!!

Never give-in, never give-up, never surrender!!

DON’T TREAD ON ME!!

Thank you. Not too many people realize this basic fact that was changed in the Constitution from its original intent. If they had to answer to their representatives from the House they would think different. The Founders had it right, those that changed it insured this kind of idiocy we see today. By the way, good chance that Bill Clinton would have been convicted had this not changed.

We are dealing people with evil intent.

Gun control never works, only the law-abiding will be unarmed. Once unarmed they will be compliant of criminals and Big Government. The public will have a difficult time figuring out the difference between the two.

Democrats do not care about children, if they did they wouldn't be so damn pro-abortion

Rats are not naive in any sense, the want undisputed power, no opposition and that is evil. They will use any incident or persons. The ends will justify the means.

17-A was certainly a catastrophically bad idea, but the lack of an enforcement provision was there from the beginning.

I just got off the phone with Manchin’s office at 304-342-5855. I had just gotten an unsolicited political call from Gifford’s husband (the Asstronaut) telling me to call Manchin and thank him for his latest BS vote.

I called and gave them more of my mind than I can afford to right now.

Great! But I do believe it’s going to require a simultaneous “pitchforks and torches” march on DC and all state capitols. We tea party patriots need to ratchet it up a couple notches.

Surely there must be some provision or law where they can be removed from office?

Would require functional branches of government, but every single one of them is in the hands of the socialists.

We The People is nothing more than a quaint reminder of a bygone era.
