Preserve, Protect and Defend AND Comprehend

 

On Inauguration Day in America, the Electoral College “graduate” is required by law to take the following Oath of Office…

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The law requires all new federal employees to swear / affirm to preserve, protect and defend, too.

But what does that Oath even mean when many of these peeps cannot even begin to fathom the intent / ideals of the Constitution’s authors… OR they mock them… OR flat out loathe them… OR, maybe, have never even bothered to read this literary work of art, at all?

Prior to anyone taking the Oath… HELL… prior to anyone even running for office or applying for a job at the federal level… they should be required to take and pass a test to prove they’ve read the Constitution and comprehend its deeper meaning.

Prior to becoming U.S. citizens, immigrants must take and pass a civics test. I’d not be going out on a limb to say they know far more about America than many peeps born in America do.
