Americans Revolt Billions of Times a Day – Godfather Politics

It seems to be that as the United States federal government and the Presidency in particular have gradually morphed into something more like a European monarchy, our attitude towards its sovereignty has shifted. Certainly no state or province or faction of the ruling class would dare to challenge the military might of the United States in a single act of open revolt.

But as time goes on we challenge it in small acts of secret revolt. Violation, for example, of our draconian system of immigration laws has become quite common. How many appointees to the federal bench or to the office of Attorney General must be caught in nanny-gate scandals involving child care payments to illegal aliens made under the table before we get the fact that our governing class, even that part which is directly pledged to enforce the law, routinely ignore this law?

Most of us aren’t all that rebellious. But when the list of petty tyrannies levied upon us by the governments that are supposed to be instituted for our benefit become so numerous that even knowing the law, much less following it, becomes impossible for citizens, we lose respect for the law, first at the edges, and soon enough, at the core. The governmental reaction is always the same, more laws to force compliance. Oddly, reducing the number of laws would likely enhance compliance with the law.

Playing Calvinball is no way to run a country.

  1. Why do you say it’s odd that reducing the number of laws would reduce the number of criminals?

    People aren’t going to change their behavior. They’ll still act the same way. It is therefore logical that, if a common behavior is made not-illegal, then of course you will have less criminals …

    (But yeah, point definitely made about Calvinball.)

  2. I liked Calvin Ball.

    Having said that, the law has not remained something to reflects the actual morality of the people (anyone that seriously thinks you can’t legislate morality has no idea whereof they speak). It has come to reflect the tyrannical bent for control. The Nazis intentionally passed a web of laws to confuse so they could have something on almost anyone they would have to deal with politically. They were a bit different than Stalin in that regard. Stalin just acted and didn’t care if there was a law. I doubt most of the Libtards understand what they are doing. Some do, and those people are evil to their core.

    The left wants to destroy rule of law, and one of the most effective ways is to destroy respect for the law. The you get anarchy which is fertile soil for tyrants to grow.

  3. Clinton was a lawyer, as were the brains behind Fast & Furious. Lawyers just wanna get rich at the expense of the little people .
