Change the Inauguration Oath

Whenever a President is inaugurated he/she is required to repeat the following oath: “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.

That last part, unfortunately could be interpreted to mean that the President will simply assure that the Constitution be stored in a climate-controlled glass case in the national archives and guarded 24/7.

Accordingly, I suggest an amendment to the pledge that would add the following words: “and will apply its provisions to any and all issues of law or public policy that come before me.”

If you agree, pass it on (perhaps to your Congressman?).
