A Political Platform That Demands Violating The Constitution is “Dereliction Of Oath”

Opinion

Presidential candidates if they win the election must take the oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” If a candidate harbors an intent to ban or confiscate arms, that oath cannot be taken legitimately.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Such candidates make themselves ineligible to attain the office.

They cannot in good faith take the oath of office without lying.

The U.S. Bill of Rights has a plain and direct ban on infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Presidential candidates who run must know, as the public does, that if they win the election they must take the oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

If a candidate harbors an intent to ban or confiscate arms the public already owns, that oath cannot be taken honestly or legitimately. Such a person cannot validly hold the office and must not run. This is the simple and plain position of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, www.jpfo.org. This applies to state races and other offices as well. Political parties themselves are expected to know this and act accordingly, refusing to endorse candidates whose stated goal is the destruction or abolition of the Constitution’s requirements.

Numerous candidates running for president have proven themselves ineligible to the office by this plain standard. By declaring plans for infringement even before taking office, we the people cannot expect those candidates to honor their oath or the Constitution, and they should do the respectable thing and withdraw. No punishment is provided in our national charters for such malfeasance short of armed revolt, which is why our Founders provided for an armed electorate. If an election is an insufficient safeguard for our liberties, these candidates threaten the very fabric of the nation and must do one of two things—change their platform or withdraw.

JPFO is keenly aware of the nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage and has set its moral compass accordingly.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams, 2nd president of the United States, Oct. 11, 1798.

The oath of office is a meaningful thing. It is not there for no reason or to be taken lightly. America runs on honor — not all systems do. If a person approaches public office with the purpose of deception, or willful design to ignore or abrogate its terms, such breach nullifies that person’s moral authority to attain the position. That’s why oaths exist. You must take the oath and honor it. Failure to do so undermines the very nature of “our system” — which is more than its written documents.

That this even has to be said is stunning. Americans used to know this to their core. It was beyond reproach. When we were a deeply honorable people it needn’t even be said. Now saying it is virtually controversial.

The parties themselves should know better. They no longer do, or actively participate in undermining the oath. It is in fact the quintessential argument and requirement. Their failure to honor the oath is an abomination.

The president must take the constitutional oath and mean it.

JPFO cannot possibly stand behind any other position, and still stand for the preservation of firearms ownership.

If it proves to be controversial, we’ll just have to withstand the slings, arrows, and spotlight. Do you stand with us and the oath — or against us? Support JPFO.

BACKGROUND– Numerous prerequisites condition eligibility to the office of President of the United States: A person cannot run for a third term, cannot be a foreign citizen, cannot be a convicted felon, must win a majority of the Electoral College votes in a quadrennial election or rise to office through legitimate succession, must meet the Constitution’s requirements of Art. 2, Sec. 2, cl. 5, for age (35 years), residency in the country (14 years) heritage (natural born Citizen), and take the Oath of Office.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of `gun control’ as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called `gun control’ does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior.

Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster.

Until we the people start holding these treasonous politicians and bureaucrats fully accountable for Dereliction of Duty and Treason with long prison sentences and death penalties, along with arresting and or ridding the Marxist professors and teachers in our colleges, universities, and schools, they’ll continue in their quest to destroy our Republic of the USA. Anyone within any affiliated party campaigning for any government or leadership position that knowingly and openly state that they’re going to do something that infringes on any one of our constitutional rights should automatically be disqualified, banned, and not be allowed to be on the… Read more »

I have always held, and have been in physical fist fights because of it (feel sorry not for me, as I’m the one to have left them with all the scars!) that it you don’t like this country to leave and don’t let the door to freedom hit you in the ass on the way out!

Based on this premise, where a lying Democrat cannot knowingly uphold the oath of office, and they get elected according to that false pledge — they should be IMPEACHED!

That said democrat(s) should not be allowed to be a candidate for the presidency or any government position if they openly say they’re going to infringe on any constitutional right, that’s basically Dereliction of Duty from the start and proof that they’re liars as well, being that they wouldn’t uphold their sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution.

Those who have no honor in the first place couldn’t care less about taking any oath. 42 and 44 were very big on deception and oath talking meant absolutely nothing to them.
Those running on the “D” ticket today have absolutely no understanding of the word, “honor.”

And the obvious is ignored by the masses of dumbed down sheeple on a daily basis. It’s as if we live in a nation of zombies that can’t comprehend even the simplest common sense truths.

Interesting that many such questions directed at WA State legislators has been met with stoic silence on the issue. Out of the entire body of both houses, there has been only one or voices that have acknowledged this duty. I will continue to hold their feet to this fire. But this is THE question to ask and for which to demand answers.

I get so tired of you people chattering like it means something……ALL democrats are cancerous dogshit, and until this rot is cut out and incinerated, they will continue to urinate on the constitution and everything that is America. You people will still be chattering about protests, rights, and voting as the DNC/antifa jackboots herd you out of the cattle cars and into the showers……

@Some guy, there will be some that say, “Don’t read it then! or Communication is good!” And that is all true, but I have an explanation for your declaration about democrats that you might less tiring. The year was 1947. Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, 70 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO), with five aliens aboard, crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal… Read more »

Yes, they would have to, and many times already have, lied in taking their oath of office. This is obviously willful and they have malevolent intent to the nation. Thus, I call it treason. Treason carries with it a legitimate, lawful, warranted and a very final penalty that is duly earned. That penalty is death. There is no lesser penalty that any court could impose. I would however, add a public tarring and feathering to be used as prison clothing until such time as sentence is carried out. When/if the day ever comes when treasonous people are prosecuted by the… Read more »

The biggest problem with most of the people these days, they don’t know the Constitution or their actual constitutional rights, they weren’t taught that in school, they were being indoctrinated and or dumbed down and it’s even worse these days. I wanna see long prison sentences and preferably executions for these traitors to the Constitution, until that happens, I don’t see anything changing any time soon, unless the balls finally start flying.

There’s a difference between what it actually means & what they want it to mean. They all know DAMN well what it means. They don’t seem to have much confusion with any other amendment. But they are starting to play the same game with a few other amendments. Because they have seen how effective it has worked on the 2A. Their Wordsmiths & Manipulators.

I would like to point out something the author did not mention. That something is that the Constitution is not written in stone. It can be changed and has been a number of times in its existence. What the author should have said is that they must follow and obey the Constitution until such time that it is changed in the legal manner. What makes liberals mad is that changes are hard and even harder now that you have a 50/50 split in the electorate.

Thank you JPFO! I do like how Bloomturd is splintering the democrat party. If he buys the nomination the young, socialist democrats are going to explode! Old grouchy Bernie and his communist followers are going to explode! The anti-white, anti-prosperity, anti-freedom crowd is going to explode! This the great and free entertainment. Almost as fun as free ammunition.
If HiLIARy gets into the race, I will buy fifty yard line, front row season tickets!

Bloomturd is a sneaky POS, the DNC wants him because he has lots of cash, that is the ONLY reason. They proved that by changing the rules for him.
Ahhh Bernie The T-Rex with tourettes, short jabs with his flailing little arms. reminds me of a 4 year old doing the “I’m a little tea pot” dance. there is ZERO Democrat in him, it is 100% COMMUNISM ! And the STUPID fall for it. I would BET that not ONE person who votes for Communism/socialism admits it AFTER they are in control… NOT ONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is anyone yelling to see his TAX RETURNS ? Funny how that shit works. We actually should want to see all their Tax Returns(politicians before & after time in office). Hell now we see them using their kids in their shady deals. Biden, Heinz & Watters to name just a few. It may shed some light on who they are working for & if they can be trusted. I voted for Trump & will again at this point. But I want to know how he went from almost broke to billionaire again. There’s a comment he’s made several times, He… Read more »
