    Question: What is treason?

    Answer: Treason is when a U.S. citizen attempts by overt acts to overthrow or seriously harm the U.S. government. The US Constitution actually defined the offense and penalty for treason in Article 3 Section 3 According to, Article 2, Section 4 of the Constitution, if an official of the U.S. government commits treason, he or she can be impeached, convicted and removed from office. The requirements for conviction of treason are intentionally narrow, allowing for only a confession or an accusation from two direct witnesses of the treasonous act.

    It is more treasonous to watch the media make a mockery of our entire free speech system by misusing their power to persuade people that don't dig it out for themselves to believe only what the media, guided by a democratic influence,want us to believe. How else do good Americans come to the conclusion that Our President, after looking at the same evidence that the leaders in Dem. party saw, went to war to protect the AMERICAN PEOPLE. There were SIXTEEN CONNECTIONS TO IRAQ, DOCUMENTED, OBVIOUS CONNECTIONS. Why don't the American people know that.Hating Bush for doing at least as much as FDR?

    Considering the Iraq War and the way we, as a people, were duped(forced) into it. Considering the way our country has been deactivated of employment and manufacturing and considering how the morale of our people and finances have been stripped from us: can President Bush be accused of Treason?

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Notice the wording from the Constitution. Them is the key word, meaning the States, not the U.S. Government. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Americans cannot wage war against the U.S. Government.

    A treason is "a crime that undermines the offender's government".
