Once upon a time “we” all agreed to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Today I know of many who swore the oath who and yet loathe the Bill or Rights, especially the 1st, 2nd, and 10th. This includes Federal LEOs, military officers and all manner of civil servants.
If this one overarching agreement is treated with contempt by those privileged to act as Constitutional Officers, they thereby destroy their own legitimacy and forfeit any claim to be obeyed.
Americans are citizens.
We are not serfs.
We are not slaves.
We are not subjects.
If those who believe they rule over us by the power of their office undermine the very
Constitution that grants them power, the are illegitimate — and zero obedience is owed to them.
According to the Constitutional oath, we are obligated to resist them because
they have become enemies of the liberties they swore to uphold.
