Our comtemptible, oath-breaking Congress

This is a great article in the Review Journal. It is about how our Congressmen are breaking their oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

I could not find a link to the Review Journal article so I am using this link to the same article.

The first line in the article states,
Most people whom we elect to Congress are either ignorant of, have contempt for or are just plain stupid about the United States Constitution.

The article then shows the ignorance and contempt that our congressmen have for the Constitution. It ends with this.
If congressmen, judges, the president and other government officials were merely ignorant of our Constitution, there'd be hope -- ignorance is curable through education. These people in Washington see themselves as our betters and rulers. They have contempt for the limits our Constitution places on the federal government envisioned by James Madison, the father of our Constitution, who explained in the Federalist Paper 45: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce. ... The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State."

We cannot elect and allow people to break their oath to uphold the Constitution.
