Quote of the Day

I am really amazed at people who say they support the Constitution, yet can talk about armed rebellion against the United States:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
US Constitution, Article III, Section iii


  1. Well back in the days of the American Revolution I doubt the laws of England allowed for an armed revolt by the colonies. If the colonies had lost I am sure history would read as if they were evil traitors to the crown that the good king had to subdue. But to the victors go the spoils and they get to write the history. So yes under current law any armed rebellion would be treason under the current Constitution. Of course whoever wins such rebellion will get to make the rules so they will go down in history as heroes if they win and as evil villains if they lose.

    1. Why don't you do what they did? Leave the country and start your own.

    2. "Why don't you do what they did? Leave the country and start your own."

      But they did leave the country Anon, they left England and settled in what was to become the United States. It might never had happened if the citizens of the colonies had been some sort of voice in government.

    3. Of course no answer from the gun loon coward.

    4. The war was fought here in America which was part of the British Empire at that time. The colonists did not leave the colonies to start a new country, they expelled the British from the land and declared themselves to be a new country. My only point was that any revolution will not be considered treason if they are successful.

    5. So none of the American colonists left England to get away from the Monarchy? All the revolutionaries were born in the American colonies? You need to take a History course. It's impossible to discuss something you are so lacking in information.
