  •  Passing Uconstitutional Laws (6+ / 0-)

    is a violation of one's oath of office.  I wish, from the very bottom of my heart and soul, that the liars, panderers and Republican right wing assholes who sponsor and vote for and pass these bills - that there would be a way to admonish/punish/prosecute those that willfully violate the constitutions they swear to uphold.

    As an older life-long Liberal who served to defend this nation, I can tell you that this kind of legislation is supremely frightening and ought to set off alarm bells - so that - each one of us needs to fight harder  - OR (and this is a reasonable and logical decision) - get the hell out of Dodge.

      Passing Uconstitutional Laws is a violation of one's oath of office.
      So when the part of McCain/Feingold that restricted corporate spending on political issues was declared unconstitutional (in the Citizens United ruling), those who voted for the bill were retroactively violating their Oaths of Office?

      If the Affordable Care Act is declared unconstitutional, the people who voted for it are retroactively in violation of their Oath of Office?

      I find that argument problematic.
