Letter: Congress has duty to support Constitution


In this most difficult time we need to remember that U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives do not swear allegiance to us or to any person or persons. They swear to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that ... (they) will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that ...(they) take this obligation freely and without mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that ...(they) will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which .. .(they) are about to enter: so help...(them) God."

In the wake of Jan. 6 when many were urged to storm the Capitol may our Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer, and Representative Kelly Armstrong be given the help of God to keep their oath of allegiance.

Richard Smith, Bismarck
