Health Care and Oath of Office

Posted by courage On December - 15 - 2009

Dear Senator <their name>

It is the human experience to be challenged by life.  At times, the stress of life may bear down upon us shadowing the very tenets we have sworn to uphold; these times necessitate reminders.  The prompts which motivate us to remain loyal to our oaths often come from sources we could not previously image.

Sir, I wish to remind you of your oath of office:

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.

These words speak to the trust WE-THE-People of your state have bestowed upon you as a Senator.  Your support and defense of the Constitution of this great land is imperative in the performance of your duties as a Senator.  As your oath states, your actions should display the conviction of upholding the United States Constitution.

The Constitution should shape the legislation before the Senate.  The legislation should not be twisted to conform to a warped understanding of the tenets of our country.  The Constitution does not, in any clause, amendment or verse dictate that the Senate can mandate through threats or coercion the purchase of any entity, let alone health care.

I respectfully request that you recommit to the oath of trust and adherence to the Constitution, the people of this state have placed in your hands.  In accordance with your oath of office, I request you vote no on any current government run health care plan.

Sincerely yours,

<your name>
