Tax Pledged Republicans Aren't Qualified For The House . . .
To qualify as a juror on a death penalty case, a person has to be willing to impose the death penalty as, at least a considered choice, for the resolution of a death penalty case. The Supreme Court, in Witherspoon v. Illinois said, a "jurors may be excluded for cause if they . . . would "automatically" vote against capital punishment . . .
If a juror, who typically serves the public for a matter of days, must be willing to use all of the tools at their disposal for the resolution of a case; how much more should representatives of the House, who serve the public for a term of years, be willing to use all of the tools at their disposal for the resolution of the people's business.
The Constitution grants Congress the "power to lay and collect Taxes," but 275, of the 288 Republicans in Congress have signed a pledge not to use their tax powers. Only 13 Republicans have declined to take an oath, that Republican members of the Congress and Senate have taken, at the behest of one Grover G. Norquist, that they will not, under any circumstances, raise taxes. Consequently, most Republicans are not qualified to serve in the House.
If a refusal to use a Constitutionally bestowed power, is not enough to render a representative unqualified, then surely, taking an oath to do so, before taking the Oath of Office, effectively renders pledged Republicans, who occupy the House, illegitimate.
Representatives who pledged to adhere to the will of Grover Norquist, a man with a vision to destroy our system of government, in favor of a one party government, that will "make it so that a Democrat cannot govern as a Democrat," before declaring their Oath of Office, are ineligible to take that oath since they are bound to a competing pledge, that creates the "mental reservation," and "purpose of evasion," that the Congressional Oath of Office forbids.
When the Oath of Office is taken by pledged Republicans, it is like one who is married, speaking marital vows to someone who is not their spouse — the pledged Republican already belongs to another. Consequently, their subsequent recitation of the Oath of Office is null and void, and of no effect. Pledged Republicans need not be removed from office, they never assumed office — they were unqualified to take the Oath of Office.
