    Definition of Treason:
    n.
    1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.

    Legal definition:
    From the 'Lectric Law Library's Lexicon
    Treason

    TREASON
    This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
    The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

    Legal Definition of Treason

    Say you send millions of American Jobs to China, building up that communist country, as well as inventions and new technologies and that leads to a collapse here, would that be considered “treason”? If not, why not?

    What about if you closed important industries, say, the only rare earths mine in the country? One that our military depends on, thereby possibly crippling our military. Would that be considered “treason”?

    What if you asked foreign countries to send money here for political campaigns to keep jobs from returning to this country? Would that be considered “treason”?

    At what point does bringing harm to this country turn from spite or greed, to “treason”?

    As far as the US is concerned, Treason is making war against the US or giving aid and comfort to its enemies.

    Just because you buy a lenovo computer over a Dell computer is not treason.

    When Clinton, Bush 41 and Gore got all nipply about China I suggest that we do the following.

    The USA is a big country, why don't we carve 10 square miles out on New Mexico and call it New China and run it like the CHiComs ran their country, then see if we still would want to buy products from them.

    Deal?

    Oh, this is an Rdean thread.

    It needs three things:

    only 6% of scientists are Republican,

    90% of Republicans are white

    We are not at war with them.

    I don't like their system, but they have their ways, we have ours.
