It’s insurrection day. Who is escaping charges? Hint: They were the ones being attacked.

The 14th Amendment seems to be less than clear about who should be banned from running for office- since common sense can’t be applied anymore, now that we have “Constitutional Originalism” in power.

The idea was that anyone who tried to overthrow the government, was ineligible to be a part of it. How it wouldn’t apply to the Commander in Chief (who has actually said he’d have General Milley shot), might have been an oversight in the same way that the founding fathers didn’t mention the right to own machine guns- the idea of a president leading an overthrow was unthinkable.

On Jan 6th, 2021, you, me and the rest of the country watched in horror as the hordes battled their way into the Capitol following the directions of their Dictator wanna be, Trump. We waited for him to tell them to stop, for hours. We’ve had a congressional investigation into what happened- and the justice department has taken it’s sweet time prosecuting Trump and his cronies for their attempt to subvert democracy for their own benefit.

While courts are arguing about the oath he took, or if the 14th applied- let’s just look at a very simple law already on the books: 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §?330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

Is that clear enough?

So far, the Feds and the courts have prosecuted Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Olympic medalists, active duty Marines, and a whole bunch of Trumpettes who thought the election was “stolen.” And while some of your neighbors are going to prison, the person who planned, caused and prodded the raid on the Capitol is still running his mouth and running for office.

Who should we blame? Well, for starters, there were a whole bunch of people (147 to be exact) sitting in Congress who failed to do their job in ratifying the election. They, supported and agreed with Trump the Traitor that the election wasn’t legit- despite a ton of evidence that the only thing not legit were Trump’s claims.

That they didn’t believe the very election results that elected them is grounds for removal. This country is built on trust, and if you don’t trust the elections, the last thing you should be doing is being in office illegitimately (by your own standards).

Of the 147, 25 are not in office anymore or won’t be in 25. That still leaves 122 who voted to support the people who attacked the capitol.

The ones with no details after their names- are seeking re-election again in 2024.

The following Senators objected:

Ted Cruz (TX)
Josh Hawley (MO)
Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS)*
Cynthia Lummis (WY)*
John Kennedy (LA)
Roger Marshall (KS)*
Rick Scott (FL)
Tommy Tuberville (AL)*

Tuberville, Marshall, Lummis and Hyde Smith were all also elected in the same election. Therefore, if they didn’t accept the vote for Biden, they were in office thanks to an illegitimate election.

You can’t have it both ways folks. And, for Tuberville, who had grandstanded by holding up military promotions for almost a year, there should be a special finding of treason.

How they escaped the scrutiny of the federal prosecutors is beyond me. And, why, they’ve been allowed to stay in office is a question no one seems to be asking (except me).

Either you believe in the outcomes of elections, or you don’t get to be elected by them. It’s time to remove all of these folks from the ballot.

But, as per usual in this country, only the little people go to prison.

It’s time to put people who trust our elections and believe in Democracy in office, and send the traitors to prison. The attack on the Capitol was an attack on Democracy- and those who don’t believe in the election results, shouldn’t be elected.
