Pelosi’s Constitutional Oath
Speaking to the House Democrat Steering and Policy Committee, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was found rewriting the oath of office.
Here is how the real oath reads: (Emphasis LCs)
I, (name of Member), 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.
However, the Leftist Ms. Pelosi changed some wording which either showed her ignorance or to fashion the gun control and 2nd amendment attack debate.
Here is how Pelosi quoted her version of the oath in part: (Emphasis LCs)
Earlier this month, shortly after Newtown, all members of Congress took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the American people. To protect and defend. That is our first responsibility. Today, members of the House Democratic Caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society and act to ensure the safety and security of our communities.
Note the change in words offered by the erstwhile Pelosi:
“....protect and defend” the American people.
Comrade Pelosi is in line with Comrade Obama in rewriting the oath to the Constitution and destroying the US Constitution itself. Their collectivist vision for America is not what the Founding Father's had in mind.
