The oath.

These are the words, sworn by oath, by Senators and those elected to Congress before taking office. Lately, I wonder why. Allegiance and service for both sides of the political aisle are seemingly, and continuously, to party only. Not country. Not the people. And not the United States Constitution.

“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: So help me God.”

It is a lie. A lie to their constituents, to the country, and to God.

stepped out into the pouring rain

tears of redemption and forgiveness

oh mother earth

what did we do

we took too much of you we were just reaching out reaching for the mother inside
