    Really, before you say another word about treason, you should really read the section of the Constitution where it is defined. As I said, the word does not mean what you think it means.

    In fact, the use of the country's military resources to wage war against its own people—a practice which you seem to advocate—would meet the definition of treason.

    If advocating treason should be punishable by hanging, then let us start with you.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    You have to admit the very idea of the government going against their own interests is pretty funny.

    Honestly? I couldn't possibly care any less how many felonies you've committed.

    But you made a pretty bald faced statement that government does not have the right to rule over the people and the people always maintain the right to destroy it whenever they deem it fit.

    You don't have that right.

    Not in America.

    Not any more.

    Maybe the Founders intended for you to maintain that right to rebellion, but much like your right to own chattel slaves that right has been taken from you.

    You can still foment rebellion, of course, just like you can still, strictly speaking, keep slaves.

    But you don't have a right to it.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Given the nature of this thread I'd particularly direct your attention to § 2385 :



    Which, essentially, you're doing:



    I mean, I doubt you'll be prosecuted for it, but in point of fact you just committed a felony.
    Your problem is staying on track. The theme of the thread is not the destruction of the Constitution and our system of government but rather RESTORING the government to the guidelines presented in the Constitution. I know of no reasoned intelligent rational person that thinks we should eliminate the Constitution. I DO however know some mindless ****heads that think they should be able to pick and choose which parts of the Constitution they want to follow based on their particular political ideology. But...that is a topic for another thread.

    I believe that would be in the spirit of this thread's topic.

    Sounds like a good way to start an oppressive, militaristic dictatorship.
