OK people, I am seriously tired of jackasses on both sides of the Gun Side throwing around the word treason (and immediate request for execution) like it was beads at Mardi Gras in the French Quarter.
This is what the Constitution say about Treason. You will find it in Article Three:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
So, it is quite a different take from having to deal with politicians doing what we know to be constitutional. But if they don’t behave, we apply that pesky part of the Constitution that says something about “petition the government for a redress of grievances.” And if that fails, we vote bums out.
But just because you have the urge to buttress your macho after 10 hours of playing Minecraft and start spouting that any deviation of the Constitution is enough grounds for execution, you better let the hangman know your neck size as you are doing the same stupid thing.
