Below is the exact wording for each of the three amendments addressing the right to vote.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude--
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax.
Note that each of the three begin with the words, The right of citizens of the United States to vote.
Thus, it becomes very clear that any elected official who has sworn an Oath of Office to "support and defend the Constitution" and who openly supports, including not taking action to stop illegals from being registered to vote and/or actually voting, is violating their Oath and should be immediately removed from office.
Federal law, namely 18 United States Code 1918, provides the penalties for violation of the Oath of Office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 and specifically includes: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.
This Patriot likes removal, confinement AND a fine. And no pension benefits.
It is anyone's guess at this point how many vacant seats we would have in Congress right now IF this law were enforced.
The bigger picture, however, begs the question, WHY is it not enforced?
The members of the Capitol Hill Boys and Girls Club, those individuals who have been elected to represent us, are, instead, mostly (not all) living a fairly lavish lifestyle, courtesy of the American Taxpayer. And why would they bring such a wonderful thing to an end by supporting and defending the "Supreme Law of the Land."
Factually, there is another Federal Law that hundreds of local, state and national elected representatives are violating, calling for time in jail. Many persons who are violating their Oath are also violating this specific law.
Title 8. United States Code Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.
We have "Sanctuary" areas all across the United States where illegal immigrants are concealed and are harbored and are shielded in direct violation of that Code.
The penalty for those persons who harbor or conceal an illegal immigrant (as in Sanctuary cities, counties and states), or who shield them from detection by agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is five years in prison.
Founder Alexander Hamilton said, “A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.”
When illegal immigrants can obtain licenses to drive, a prerequisite to obtaining a voter ID card, and when it has been proven that they have been voting, our freedom is being eroded because our voice is being taken away.
Make no mistake.
If illegals can (and do) vote and cast their ballots for those who will allow them to stay in our beautiful country, and live off of We the Taxpayer, we are at risk.
And a big reason is that We the People have have been complacent. We have not demanded and ensured that elected representatives abide by their solemn Oath.
Several freedoms are now limited or facing all-out extinction, including freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, to name but a few.
And though I do not like my cousin Patrick Henry using the word "rulers" in this next quote, that is the time they lived in, that is what had been done throughout most of the world, people were governed by power-hungry rulers, monarchs, tyrants.
Henry said, “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”
Transactions such as over 260 workplace harassment lawsuits (including sexual abuse) against members of Congress have been hidden behind the "Congressional Accountability Act of 1995" that has paid out over $17 million in taxpayer funds as hush money to keep accusers quiet. No public records exist. That is pretty concealed. That is criminal.
And there are many more abuses by members of Congress of their positions, given to them with trust by We the People, which they violate, day after day, costing We the Taxpayer billions upon billions of dollars, which includes, of course, providing financial assistance and aid to illegal immigrants.
It is time to round up these people violating their Oath of Office and throw them out. En masse, if need be. To send a message that We the People will not stand for it anymore.
Founder and third president Thomas Jefferson summed it up quite nicely, when he said, “Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us.”
And, if our Justice Department cannot or will not do it, We the People can. And must.
At the voting booth.
Find and vote only for those individuals who have proven by their actions that they do, in fact, support and defend our mighty U.S. Constitution.
Make the Constitution Great Again!
Remember in November!
It is time for Americans to become armed with knowledge of our U.S. Constitution and our laws and hold public officials accountable. The easiest way to learn is with our award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie. In addition, for more in-depth study there is a one-day Constitution Boot Camp from Building Blocks for Liberty or consider KrisAnne Hall's online Liberty First University.
