Cautions against excess by elected officials

To the Editor:
How can the people preserve our nation in that our Founding Fathers gave to us with their writings, freedom and liberty?
I present for study an amendment possibility to:
1. The State of Connecticut and
2. Our United States Constitution.
According to our state and federal governments, all are, upon their oath, servants of the people; we the people.
The elected official or judge shall not exceed his office with public thoughts or vote.
Today there are complaints of political activists who exceed their oath once in office.
One might campaign for office as a Democrat or Republican but, once in office, only the Constitution prevails, not political parties nor something foreign.
Nowhere in the four founding documents of the United States is found, we the Democrats, same with Republicans or socialists.
The amendment is: the principle that an act done by any official person or law-making body in excess of his or its legal competence is simply void.
