"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government . . . The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms..."--Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers No. 28, Independent Journal Friday, December 26, 1787.It can easily be asserted, that by openly advocating for violation of a crucial Constitutionally secured right, is treasonous in nature. Especially a right which would be absolutely necessary in order to battle against a government that had become tyrannical. And was openly engaging in criminal warfare against the rights of the people that it was intended to serve.
