Tyranny, Treason?


Is tyranny not treason?

To change our Constitutional Republican form of government from within, especially when elected officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the land, is that not illegal to violate that Constitutional guarantee in Article IV, Section 4? Is there nothing that can be done to stop it?

Is not tyranny the enemy to our Constitutional Republic, and therefore treason?

To persuade the Sovereign individual States to ratify the Constitution the Federalist Papers were written. The definition of tyranny was given in Federalist Paper #47: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many. And whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”

Oaths to the Constitution are to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The Constitution’s Article III, Section 3, states: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies….” Have not subversive enemies from within, been the way many a country has been overthrown?

Does anyone have the courage to do something about the loss of our Constitutional Republic to tyranny from the President? He violates the Constitution by running the country with legislative Executive Orders to Regulatory Agencies, supported by his own judgement, with his pen and phone.

Is there no lawful way to stop tyranny, apart from State secession? Although, State secession is permitted by America’s Declaration of Independence, and Federalist Paper #39, concurs: “Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body independent of all others and only to be bound by its own voluntary act.”
