Why the 14th Amendment, specifically Section 3, should be cited by ‘we the people’ when we decide to vote [all but one of] the bums out:
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
All of the elected officials have sworn an oath to office, but what did the Founders mean when they said, “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof”?
Rebellion in this context would be “a refusal of obedience” to the Constitution. For example, the responsibilities of the Congress are listed in Article 1 Section 8. These are the enumerated powers of Congress.
