Oath Accountability Act

Appallingly, many of the authoritarian statists who have been eating away like termites at our republic swear oaths to uphold the very document that serves as its foundation. Wouldn’t it be nice if statist politicians paid a price for this betrayal? They will be — if the Oath Accountability Act becomes law. The Essential Liberty Project explains the purpose:

To restore the Constitution’s strict enumeration of the central government’s “few and defined powers,” we must, first and foremost, require that all members of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches abide by their oaths “to support and defend” our Constitution — under penalty of law. At present, there is no legal penalty for Breach of Oath or legal obligation to abide by the plain language of our Constitution.

Please help us enact, through judicial or legislative action, strong penalties obligating all elected and appointed federal officials to abide by their oaths. If the federal judiciary refuses to hear this action, then we will take it to the national legislature for codification into federal law. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, “Bind [them] down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

Sign the petition if you like the idea.

All that stands between us and tyranny.

    Haven’t researched it yet but wouldn’t this be considered a high crime punishable by impeachment. This should have been done long ago.

  2. Bob Roberts says:

    I’m for this, but understand there will be two problems:

    1) No typical politician will ever agree to anything that makes them accountable for their actions and

    2) If enacted, politicians would find a way to abuse the law to attack and destroy their rivals.

    It would be great if, within my lifetime, this sort of law was enacted and I am proven wrong.

    Oh, if only it could be so.

    Unfortunately, this could never happen since it would require a population that has both strength and will. The elected lying crooks know only too well that generally speaking, the American people have neither. If they did, most of the things being done to the people by this govt. (and it’s media) would never be tolerated.

    That’s a noble idea but checks and balances are already in place and can be used. We just don’t have anyone with the balls to use them.

    Good government cannot be imposed from without; it must grow from the people themselves.

  6. StanInTexas says:

    The major problem with legislation like this is that the only people that can make it into law are the very ones abusing it.

    Yep, just thinking the same thing. That’s the part that steams me the most, that we even need to be having this discussion in the first place!

    If we have idiots who believe that the Constitution allows regulation of non-activity, and we do, how in the hell do we get anyone to agree what a “violation” of that oath is?
