Article III Section 3 of the United States Constitution – Treason
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.
Sounds familiar eh? It’s not like we’ve had congressmen go to the land of enemies of our country and bad mouth the President, or the actors, or singers, or a myriad of other wackos who criticized our President during a time of war and at the side of our enemies.
But who do Democrats want to punish? Dick Cheney. In a recent house debate, Democrats wanted to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. The measure by Dennis Kookcinich, Democrat from the “high” part of Ohio, to throw out the Veep, is still being debated in the House.
I believe that we clearly made a tremendous mistake in our society by allowing treasonous acts to be committed without fear. We have people in this country who have demanded that our enemies be given better treatment than our soldiers get. We hold our soldiers accountable for their actions, and yet, we have people who are going overseas to encourage, aid, and comfort our enemies. Whatever happened to politics ends where the sea begins? And to want to throw our country into disarray during a time of war, especially after 9-11, is despicable. Whether one agrees with Iraq or not, we must not throw our country into disarray.
But Kookcinich wants to put extreme liberal Nancy Pelosi just one heart beat away from being President. I understand why Kookcinich would want to do this, the only way his version of America can make it’s way into the White House is if he imposes his will onto the rest of us.
It’s a risky thing to do during these times. We are at war, we have enemies throughout the world such as Al Qaida, North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela, that removal of the Vice President would make the President a tremendous target. Think about what would happen if we removed the Vice President and then the President gets assassinated (*Disclaimer-dear FBI, in no way am I encouraging any harm to the President), Nancy Pelosi, the congress’s version of Governor Kathleen Blanco, then becomes President.
The disarray that would happen in this country if we lost both the Veep and the President with Nancy Pelosi as the back up? No thanks.
And even if a foreign enemy of this country wasn’t able to get to the President, we have enough kooks in this country that would do it. There are people in this country that have become so fanatical about socialism that they will be willing to throw the country into disarray. Know you’re history, this is how socialism gets instituted after the people flat out reject it time and time again. Socialism isn’t just a political theory, it’s a religious cult whose members are willing to kill and die killing capitalist for their religious cause.
I hate to sound like an alarmist, but we are not talking about normal and sane people here. This element of the left aren’t your grandma’s granola, tamborines, and kumbaya. They are the Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro idolizers we’re dealing with.
But ultimately we are to blame for allowing America to be put into such a position. We’ve voted for “moderate” and “Conservative” democrats and what did they do first? Put a liberal extremist two heart beats away from becoming the Next President and elevated Kookcinich to a position of any significance.
Nancy Pelosi is what Louisiana gets for voting Democrats Charlie Melancon and William Jefferson, both voted to put Nancy Pelosi in this position. For the record, the Louisiana Republican delegation did not vote for Pelosi as Speaker of the House. A vote for moderate or conservative Democrats is a vote for liberal extremism.
