Who Will Protect and Defend the Constitution?

CNS NEWS: White House Won't Rule Out That Obama Will Sign Other Bills--Such As Immigration Reform--That Are Not Put to Yea-or-Nay Votes in Both Houses

The US Constitution

Article 2, The Executive Branch

Section 1, The President

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Article 1, The Legislative Branch

Section 7, Revenue Bills, Legislative Process, Presidential Veto

But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively.

What we have now are two branches of government, both willing to defy the letter and the spirit of the law of the land, the United States Constitution. If Congress sends legislation to the president that does not meet constitutional requirements, it has broken the law and all those responsible for such legislation should be removed from office. If the president signs such legislation, thereby breaking his oath to protect and defend the Constitution, he also needs to be removed from office. The citizens of the United States must take whatever step necessary to make sure the Constitution is preserved.
