What is treason? [View all]

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

In my mind there are persons (including some politicians and corporations) who manifest" betrayal of allegiance to the United States....

If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.


Our country has been profoundly weakened by the actions of politicians who promote the interests of corporations - at the expense of U.S. citizens.

Does it matter if the enemy lives abroad or on our shores?

I'm really tired of the rhetoric in recent news. Politicians who promote the outsourcing of jobs should
be voted out. I believe it is treasonous to undermine the citizens of the United States.
