Truly great essay, a very timely message to not ignore. Thanks Abby Z., you come in loud and clear!


but this really is treason! sabotaging the USPS is sabotaging the USA! and he’s confessed its to stop people from voting! A!so treason! lock him up!


I’m glad somebody agrees with me on that point. From Article III, Section 3:

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Under a literal reading of Article III, Section 3, these particular crimes would probably not be considered treason, especially by the Roberts Court. But it seems to me that a reading of “levying War against them” only slightly broader might pass, especially as the term “war” is used today.
