Rick Crawford on the Oath of Office
Rick Crawford, the only announced Republican candidate for Arkansas’ 1st Congressional District in 2010, has a great post on his blog where he recalls the oath of enlistment he swore to join the US Army. He does a great job pointing out the similarities between the oath of enlistment and the oath our elected representatives take to “uphold 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…”
So what happened to that oath of office taken by the current crowd in Washington, DC. Crawford believes the Constitution is “in peril,” under attack and is not being upheld and defended by our elected representatives. In his quest to unseat incumbent Marion Berry, he states that “We need leadership that we can trust to discern right from wrong, communicate that to those they represent, and stand for the right – whether it’s popular or not, politically correct or incorrect.”
My favorite part is the closing line of his post, True Faith and Allegiance, but you’ll have to read it on his site.
