Notes to reader (more accurately, note to self):
1.) If the deterioration of the America that we once knew and loved seems to be worsening, well that’s because it is, but also it seems that folks who can actually write are more frequently compiling synopses that, for us dummies and amnesiacs, paint a better picture of the whole of our decline. Leastwise, I’m noticing it more.
2.) I am fully aware of the fact that I still cannot write, nor am I expert on any thing, save my living, even which may be stretch’n it. ~tdv

If desertion of the Constitution equals rebellion against the U.S. (amd.14,s.3), then any debt to that end is void (amd.14,s.4). see obamacare, etc. @ 08.24.12
~Below emphasis mine, and it ties, I’m tell’n ya :]
amd.14,s.3: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
amd.14,s.4: The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
