    •  I call it treason when elected officials refuse (0+ / 0-)

      do their sworn duty.

      The bottom 1% are the most egregious victims of Wall Street's class war. We 99% must not abandon them.

        has a sworn duty to vote in favor of any legislation, or pass any law, or approve any nominee. All they have to do is obey the Constitution. A member of Congress, like Ron Paul as an example (who I think is a nut job) has every right to oppose just about everything in sight and do everything legally permissible to thwart the President. That's politics, not treason.
