It is usual to hear politicians slip up. We can’t all be perfect when every one of our words is intensely searched through by the public and the media.
But this is something different. You don’t hear Todd Akin or Lindsey Graham saying this.
Florida State Senator Don Gaetz sent a letter to noted Constitutionalist KrisAnne Hall advising her that he agrees with Andrew Jackson when he said:
“Shoot the first nullifier that touches the Flag. And hang the rest.”
That’s enough, Senator. You’ve just set the constitutionalists on fire.
The Constitution gives power to the states to assert certain laws are unConstitutional, or to have whatever powers are not granted to the Federal Government. People who support this do not need to be “shot” or “hanged.”
14th Amendment, Section III:
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Sen. Gaetz should never be able to hold office again, for comforting the enemies of the Constitution.
Nullification of unConstitutional legislation is our right.
It’s time to demand an apology from Sen. Gaetz for his ridiculous statement.
Call his office at (850)-897-5747 and DEMAND, politely and civilly, he retract his statement.
Sen. Gaetz needs to be reminded what his Oath is. His Oath is to defend our rights against all enemies, foreign and domestic….not to aid and abet them by discrediting those who stand up for the Constitution.
Make this go viral, we must demand an apology, and remove this man from office for violating this Oath.
Trust not in the conscience of man, but bind them with the chains of the Constitution.
