The Source of Rights and Justice
Time after time in the last few years, the executive branch of our federal government decided which laws to enforce. It also decided which laws it can ignore as if they were never passed by Congress. I wish we could do that.
Maybe we can. How long will this continue until we the citizens take the same liberties as our government? If the government doesn’t obey the law, then there is absolutely no reason we should obey the law either. The point is not that we may be justified in taking the law into our own hands. That was settled long ago. The point is we may be compelled to do so.
That is profoundly sad for at least two reasons. The rule of law is extremely precious. That is the first reason. The second is that the current government thinks most American’s won’t get off the couch.
