Oath of office

Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution clearly states: "All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives."

Is this difficult to understand? Is the meaning not crystal clear? Do the miserable excuses for legislators who make up our current Congress have any concept of how they have abused and ignored their oaths of office?

Mr. Obama also swore the same oath.

I understand the words written above to mean than the powers given to Congress are delineated so plain and simple that very little doubt can be as to the restrictions placed upon the Congress.

I will admit that a few of that select group do make an effort to adhere to the principles and intent of our Constitution.

So few that their voices are all but silenced by the outrageous noise made by those who continue to violate their oath.

Congress has the bank book. Mr. Obama's misguided legislative actions and total disregard for the Constitution could be stopped in midstream if Congress would stop approving the bad checks he keeps on asking to be written.

Another 10 years of the continuation of our present path will make our debt and GDP about the same. Not a comforting thought, is it?

God, hard work, individualism, and limited government, and working within the confines of the Constitution can save us. I hope and pray that enough of us still exist to overcome this mess we are in and return America to the greatness and pride we once felt as Americans with a future for the little ones.
