Then "We the People" let domestic enemies get into the three branches of our government. The US Constitution puts limits on our government so it cannot become too powerful, nor does it allow them to take more power for themselves; which is one way to recognize a "Domestic Enemy of the USA" - when they overstep the boundaries of the job they occupy within our fed government. (Which we have been letting them get away with.)
Congress is the ONLY government body that has legislative power. It states in Article one, "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress...". See the word "ALL"" That word leaves no room for interpretation - it doesn't mean most of the legislation, it means ALL of the legislation! Executive orders are legislation from the executive branch - which is illegal here in the USA.
The US Constitution is the blueprint for how our government operates; it specifies exactly what the LIMITS are for each of, plus splits the power between, the three branches of our government. The Constitution was written by the States to create a Federal Government whose job focus would be principally on external objects: like war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The Constitution was never designed to provide or enumerate the rights of the citizens but to restrain the federal government from meddling in state and ultimately citizen affairs.
The powers of the States extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people plus the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State."
The Oath was/is not sworn to support a government, a general, a President, entity, or any other person of any position. The Oath was/is sworn to Support and Defend the Constitution - the ideals of Liberty and Freedom, the last vestige of true freedom upon the face of this earth.
If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?
