Causapatet has some thoughts to consider. I agree with him.
The money quote: ... As in all the founding documents, "United
States" is in the plural, signifying that the free and independent
states were united in delegating certain enumerated powers for their own
mutual benefit. Thus, "waging War against them" means the states.
Waging war against the free and independent states is what constitutes
treason under the U.S. Constitution. That's why Lincoln's invasion of
the Southern states was the very definition of Treason.
