In an attempt to define that which is every soldier and national public official’s duty to the Republic and the corresponding quantification of their allegiance to the same, every oath of office and oath of the defenders of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights contains the clause: “I _________ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…” This clause is important in that it establishes the American definition of a traitor as including one who does not defend the US Constitution AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS against DOMESTIC ENEMIES; thus establishing loyalty to elected officials only as long as THEY HAVE REMAINED LOYAL TO THEIR TRUST OF UPHOLDING THE US CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. At the moment they fail this, it then becomes the sworn duty of those so enjoined to DEFEND both the US CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS FROM THOSE ELECTED OFFICIALS WHICH HAVE BROKEN TRUST.
What should be noted here is that this oath makes no difference between an invader, or a duly elected official’s attack on these documents, both are to met with brute force to insure these documents (which gave our government its legitimacy) survival; no attack, whether through an unconstitutional ‘Executive Order” or an attempt to legislate from the bench of the judiciary is to be allowed without resistance. Noticing the further qualifying fact that those who have taken this oath are bound by it until death; there is no release from the duty this oath details – fidelity until death.
