Section 3. 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.If you want an example of contemporary behavior that flirts with treason, then I suggest you look at this person advocating violence against U.S. state governments:
So the states listed in the article are keeping money wrongfully exacted, without compensation.There are conservatives out there calling on other conservatives to levy war against the United States: that's a lot more like treason my friends than anything the Democratic Party may do over the weekend.
One has to wonder what the appropriate response of The People should be to such an outrage. Should taxpayers reduce deductions from their wages to engage in self-help?
In this day of assaults on our Liberty in the cause of statism, one has to wonder whether the Founders didn't have the right answer.
The question "When do reasonable men take up arms?" is one that should always be contemplated by a free People. Or a People that wants to remain free.
