Strike These Words from Florida's Public Officer Oath?


The Florida Constitution contains text in the Public Officer Oath that violates US Law and the US Constitution.  That text needs to be removed. 

Specifically, the US Law and US Constitution require public officers of the US and State governments to swear to support the Constitution.  But, Florida's Constitution requires public officers to swear to support BOTH the Constitutions and Governments of the US and Florida.  

This causes a dilemma when public officers make decisions and take actions that violate the constitutions, such as allowing unrestricted invasion by illegal aliens into our land, or requiring people to accept an experimental vaccination. Other public officers bind  themselves by oath to support Government, and thereby to support its illegal edicts and activities. 


One cannot remain loyal to the Constitution while loyal to a public officer in breach of the constitution.  And most public officers operate in breach of the constitutions from time to time, sometimes with horrible and enduring consequences.


SO, do the words "and Government" in Florida's Public Officer Oath bother you?  Check out the provisions of law and constitution below to see proof that Florida's Constitution violates them.

Florida Constitution

(i) Article II General Provisions. SECTION 5. Public officers.—

    (b) Each state and county officer, before entering upon the duties of the office, shall give bond as required by law, and shall swear or affirm:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, protect, and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States and of the State of Florida; that I am duly qualified to hold office under the Constitution of the state; and that I will well and faithfully perform the duties of   (title of office)   on which I am now about to enter. So help me God.”,

    and thereafter shall devote personal attention to the duties of the office, and continue in office until a successor qualifies.

Florida Oath Form

See the Florida Public Officer oath of office form as of Dec 2021:  


US Constitution

Article IV, Section 4

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Article VI, clause 3

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

United States Code

4 USC § 101. Oath by members of legislatures and officers

Every member of a State legislature, and every executive and judicial officer of a State, shall, before he proceeds to execute the duties of his office, take an oath in the following form, to wit: “I, A B, do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”


Note that loyalty to government over the constitution changes the form of government from a Republic to an oligarchy, and the US Constitution guarantees states a Republican form of government, as shown above.

If it bothers you that one cannot remain loyal to the constitution while loyal to Government (such as a public officer in breach of the Constitution), get the words "and Government" stricken from the Florida Constitution's public officer oath, for they violate both US law and the US Constitution, as shown above.
