Quotable Quotes

"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."
 - George Washington (1796)


"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."
 - Thomas Jefferson (1799)


"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States." - Ronald Reagan, 1981


"Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett in a lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

Elected Officials, Law Enforcement, and levels of Government Employees in Texas take this oath.  There may be some variation due to the nature of the job but it is almost this exact oath.  It can be found in the Texas Constitution (see reference below) and as also stated in the Lewisville City Charter (see Part1, Article 5, Section 5.08).  I took the liberty to bold and Italicize important parts of this oath.

Section 5.08. Oath of office.

Every officer of the city shall, before entering upon the duties of his office, take and subscribe to the following oath of affirmation to be filed and kept in the office of the city secretary.
"I, ________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office ________________, of the City of Lewisville, State of Texas, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and Laws of the United States and of this State and the Charter and Ordinances of this city; and I furthermore solemnly swear (or affirm), that I have not directly or indirectly paid, offered, or promised to pay, contributed, nor promised to contribute any money or valuable thing, or promised any public office or employment as a reward for the giving or withholding a vote at the election at which I was elected, or if the office is one of appointment, to secure my appointment. So help me God."


State law references: Oath, Vernon's Ann. Tex. Const. art. 16, 1.
