Write the Congress Weasel's

Just sent to my MN representative and Senators, beneath the heading(s) "other" and, in Amy Klobuchar's case, "crime".  And in the subject line, "When Govt. doesn't obey the Constitution, what's Treason?"  

 "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."

Was he lying then? You have an obligation to stop these unconstitutional recess(sic.) appointments.  Or do you only support the Constitution when Republican presidents "shred it"?

From John Locke's 'Treatise on Govt':  The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property; and the end why they chuse and authorize a legislative, is, that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society, to limit the power, and moderate the dominion, of every part and member of the society: for since it can never be supposed to be the will of the society, that the legislative should have a power to destroy that which every one designs to secure, by entering into society, and for which the people submitted themselves to legislators of their own making; whenever the legislators endeavour to take away, and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge, which God hath provided for all men, against force and violence."

The Founders believed this.  You took an oath too.  What do you believe?
