No, we gave the government privilege to exist. They haven’t the right to do so, and we can revoke that privilege if necessary.
Personally, I think it’s necessary.
The time has come!
I could not agree more.
look up the third amendment and what it says about treason.
y’all a bunch of traitors.
What does the limiting the quartering of soldiers have to do with treason? You supposedly took an oath to defend the CONSTITUTION against all enemies foreign and domestic. The government is not the constitution. Rather the constitution’s very purpose is to restrain the government. Nothing in the bill of rights limits individual freedom but rather protects it…
you must not have read section 3 of the third amendment.
to levy war against the government is treason. according to the constitution i swore to uphold.
in other words, when the racist hillbillies with ar-15s decide they want to over throw the government, i’ll be there to kill them. that’s the domestic enemy. that’s treason. and that’s what you hicks are suggesting as a course of action.
What about when they are unarmed? Are you ready to fire on unarmed civilians?
no. if you’re helping the enemy that is trying to overthrow our democratically elected government, you will be executed. that’s also in the third amendment.
isn’t constitutional knowledge FUN? i bet you stopped reading after the second amendment, huh?
So go execute the muslim brotherhood who obama is providing weapons to.
if i were deployed in that area and got into a fire fight with those people i would indeed kill them.
but i don’t see a point to this response.
do you usually just throw out buzzwords you heard on fox news?
“OBAMA! MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD! WEAPONS! ARMING!
yeah.. take that liberals. try to argue with that logic.”
You must not have read the constitution at all.
The third amendment in its entirety:
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
Nothing in there about treason and most certainly not execution. Just property rights.
What you ARE referring to, if you took the time to read the document that you took an oath to protect, is Article III, Section 3, which reads:
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.
Nothing in this part about being specifically executed in aiding the enemy, that is proscribed by law, not the constitution. It does however define treason in the way you did, kinda. Levying war is another way to say war is declared through legislative power (IE a state congress voting). Moreover, aiding in the enemies is a more broad definition. It could be aiding Germany in the 1940s get their hands on the Manhattan Project, or giving Al Queda intel on how to invade the homeland.
It does not particularly pertain to the people of the United States, taking up arms to defend their rights. One of the greatest examples of what this is can be found in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence:
…to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and to institute new Government…
I could go on, but I tink I’ve said enough. In short, in a liberty model of government, the government receives its legitimacy from from the consent of the governed. We make up the constitution, and when our government turns on us or goes where we don’t want it, we have a right to turn on it and abolish it, wither through a constitutional convention, or revolution.
