<quoted text>Not sure exactly how it is worded in the constitution, but there is a section that say's we should have the right to arm ourselves againest a threat to our society or government, either foreign or domestic.....pretty sure it's in there, somewhere....now, i am thinking that alot of the senseless violent crime that we see, though we do have a system, in place designed to keep it at bay...just does'nt and therefore....would'nt it represent a domestic threat?
Like This?

"I,(NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice."

But that isn't part of the constitution.....

Thanks....alway's wondered how so many members of both aisles of Congress, could justify signing a pledge to a lobbyist, after swearing to such an oath?

That's actually the oath taken by persons entering the military. the oath taken by members of Congress reads as follows:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter:"

Note that congress doesn't pledge to obey the orders of the president or any officers.

Yes, but does'nt the constitution also set out the outline of the three branches of our government, and therefore an executive branch?
