Oath of Office Violated?

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States

How should we reconcile the verbal and written (tweeted) attacks on a free press with the First Amendment of the Constitution? I have trouble doing so and hope that those who have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic recognize this threat.

Supporting Sanders Simply Makes the Most Sense

When you strip away all the hoopla, propaganda and hype, then examine the record and rhetoric and finally do so with an open-minded attitude it becomes crystal clear that we have a phenomenal opportunity in the Bernie Sanders candidacy. I won't say that we are any less biased here but I will say that I have never lived anywhere more open to and allowing for diversity of thought, expression and way of being. Compound this open-mindedness with better than average education demographics and a deep appreciation for our beautiful environment, add in an unsustainable macro-economic system, changing global climatic conditions and finally an authentic change candidate and there is only one conclusion - supporting Bernie Sanders simply and overwhelmingly makes the most sense.

And to be clear, we are not angry here. We are enthused to have easily the best choice in a generation to support and caucus for. Happy days are here again.
