Rule of Law. Does it apply to only me – but not to the government?
If the government can get away with “I don’t remember” every time they break the law – do we really live under the Rule of Law? Of course not.
If I break the law – what happens? If govt officials break the law – what happens? Do the same things happen to me that happen to government officials? So – do we live under the rule of law?
Since it’s pretty evident we DO NOT ANY LONGER live under the Rule of Law, why do I need to obey laws government officials disobey at their leisure – all the while collecting salary, benefits and perks I PAY FOR at the cost of lowering MY FAMILY’s standard of living?
Maybe it’s just time to acknowledge that the Rule of Law no longer applies… and act accordingly?
