Gary Edward Geraci

Oath of Office

I took an oath I made a vow,

Soft Marxist pronouns here and now

The standard bear our enemies,

Faulting flag, God, and our country’s


History; her founding fathers’

Wisdom; the battles of our brothers

Who fought and died for liberty.

Who took this obligation freely,


So that you and I can speak in freedom,

Pray and worship in His kingdom,

And build our foreign and domestic

Friendships, our Constitution respected.


Yes I pledge true faith and allegiance,

Patriotism: the credence

To discharge the duties of my office,

So help me God - keep me cautious.


Gary Edward Geraci





5 U.S. Code § 3331. Oath of office: An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” This section does not affect other oaths required by law.

        Thank you!

        Our oath should also include
        "That I shall do all I can and raise my voice as loudly as I can, to rid anyone who usurps the office for their personal gain, over the nations interest", such as we are going through at present with self grandiose TRUMP.
        He has destroyed democracy forever.
        May what this represent be in your heart and mind forever.

          Thanks Suresh. We live in a great country - a free country. We are free to speak out - just look at the success of Candace Owens and Dave Rubin and Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson, etc. I am a Trump supporter and so we can agree to disagree for the sake of our friendship. While he may not have had a stellar moral record, very few do - the indicators
          and business and employment reports seem to be in his favor. Let’s see how he does in the next election - if the will of the American people are generally against Trump - we will see it in the election result.

          • Suresh

            Its not a matter of agree to disagree. I am a libertarian, but no matter how I may be in agreement with the platform, I will never support immorality, obscenity, bullying, vain, lying thief. There are millions of republicans who are of a better character, and it's a pity that they sacrificed the moral fiber of the party, and democracy itself.
            As far as business and employment is concerned, it was well on its way for the last seven years, which his actions are only carrying forward.

              Thank you Orchidee. This is the Oath of Office I had to take by the way. I am a federal employee with the United States Department of Agriculture. I am a dam engineer. (No “n” on the end of dam please).
