Oath? What oath?

The last time we checked in with Representative Phil Hare (Democrat - Illinois), he was telling a constituent with a camera that, "I don't worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest," in response to the constituent's question about the constitutionality of a health care law that forced Americans to buy health insurance against their will.

Well darned if, just the other day, Phil Hare couldn't keep his stupid trap shut yet again. During some sort of meet and greet, Hare was asked by another constituent with a camera about that pesky issue of constitutionality regarding the health care deform law. Along with marveling at Hare dismissing the Constitution as "silly stuff," watch as Congresscritter Hare first insults and then ignores the man with the camera asking all the inconvenient questions:

What a complete Slimeball.

Allow me to remind Congresscritter Hare of the oath to which we swore (or affirmed) when he undertook the task of becoming a Representative to the state of Illinois:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Here is a little tidbit about the history of that oath from the website of the U.S. Senate. Emphasis is mine:
At the start of each new Congress, in January of every odd-numbered year, the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate performs a solemn and festive constitutional rite that is as old as the Republic. While the oath-taking dates back to the First Congress in 1789, the current oath is a product of the 1860s, drafted by Civil War-era members of Congress intent on ensnaring traitors.
Hmmm, they might have been on to something there. What do you think, Congresscritter Hare? And that goes for all those other members of our federal legislature (and executive branch) who look at our Constitution as some sort of barrier to be driven around, rather than the road map to freedom and prosperity that it truly is.

Remember in November!

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson
