What Do ‘We The People’ Define As Treason?

Treason: 1.the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.  2.a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.  3.the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them."

How do we define legal bribes from corporations or the richest people in the world?  Or quid pro quo employment offers once politicians leave office in return for political favors made while in office?  Or lobbyists offering private jets on “official” trips or paid vacations lobbyists take with public servants?  Or foreign corporations or foreign governments lobbying our government with money?   All of these are efforts to gain favor with rules changes that benefit the richest corporations and individuals while subverting the one-person, one-vote process.   Have Washington politicians forfeited their citizenry and their ability to hold public office as part of this dynamic?

A friend sent me this link regarding treason and loss of citizenship for politicians who sell out our country, We The People and their soul under the 13th Amendment.  I haven’t researched this topic beyond what is available on this site and others like it.   I am often dubious of what often appears to be fringe elements expressing fringe views but it appears the people behind this effort are searching for truth in a world of corruption, and that there may be legitimacy to their claims as provided by ample supporting documentation going back hundreds of years.   In other words, many politicians in Washington would be in jeopardy of losing their citizenship as a matter of treason outlined in the original intent of the 13th Amendment.  

“This Article of Amendment is intimately connected to questions of loyalty, honesty, war and national defense. It is designed to combat internal subversion and discord sowed by people who are adhering to powers foreign to the Congress of the United States without stepping across the bold Constitutional line of treason. The authors of the TONA wrote it after some additional experience with how the British Empire, as well as other European nations, actually conduct their affairs. It is a corrective and supplemental measure to go along with Constitutional treason.

This Article of Amendment added an enforceable strict penalty, i.e., inability to hold office and loss of citizenship, for violations of the already existing constitutional prohibition in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8 on titles of nobility and other conflicts of citizenship interest, such as accepting emoluments of any kind for services or favors rendered or to be rendered, and is particularly applicable today in the 21st Century as government is increasingly FOR SALE to the highest bidder, as foreign nations and multinational corporations and individuals compete to line the pockets of politicians and political parties to accommodate and purchase protection or privilege for their special interests, i.e. with honors, such as money or allowing dual-citizenships.

In terms familiar to the common man, this might quite properly be called the use of bribes and graft by individuals and powers foreign, i.e. external, to the Congress of the United States to subvert the constitutional process and suborn our political system and the interests of WE THE PEOPLE. “

If this indeed has merit, and I am inclined to believe it may, the original 13th Amendment was modified most assuredly under the banner of fraud and corruption. 

Regardless of whether acts of selling out our government and our people is law or not, it is an act of treason if not by law then measured by morality of any reasoned mind.  And that means the Constitution needs to be amended to reflect that fact and the original intent of the 13th Amendment.
