  1. The Espionage Act is indisputably unconstitutional. It is very telling that every Congress since 1917 has refused to repeal it. They have consistently broken their oath to uphold and protect the Constitution for so long that we forget what it is like for our employees in our government to actually hold their oath to heart.

    One Congressman who does uphold the Constitution is Dennis Kucinich. He was the only Congressperson to file Articles of Impeachment against both dick Cheney and Dubya. He regularly votes against illegal war funding. His constituents in Cleveland regularly reelect him to Congress because he saved them billions of dollars in increased electric bills by literally dodging the local mafia’s hit man bullets to prevent Cleveland’s electric power plant from being taken over.
