(Lucas: Ron talks on the The Republic of the USA – Rusa and the question of imposing oaths on people to be a real member of the Republic!)
Many of my brothers and sisters seem to feel the need to impose some sort of oath to a creed in order to be recognized as a viable member of society. Those unwilling to take such oaths are seen as subversives. To me, this indicates a deep fear of freedom, an unwillingness to trust the process of spritual growth and awakening. I speak specifically to those in the Republic that want to impose a citizenship oath on everyone living in the nation. This is insane and unconstitutional.
They just posted the Special Naturalization Act on republiccongress.org. I’m afraid I’m going to have to vote “No” on this Act, because it’s going to require every citizen to give the following oath:
“I hereby solemnly declare on [oath] [affirmation]: I am a living [man] [woman] of good moral character, endowed with God-given unalienable rights, committed to living by the rule of law, the sacred trust of self-governance and to the essential and moral responsibility of protecting the rights, life, liberty and property of others as strongly as I defend my own; My sole and exclusive political jurisdiction, law venue, and protection rest on the common law of God and the law form of the Republic for the United States of America, which is the Holy Bible, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights; and I will support and defend the same against all enemies, foreign and domestic; I absolutely and entirely renounce all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereign of whom or which I have been a subject or citizen; and I absolutely and entirely renounce any law form that is antithetical to the law form of the Republic for the United States of America. Without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, I freely make this declaration, so help me God.”
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
