Nation of laws
We arrogantly boast of being a “nation of laws,” and that we follow the “rule of law.” Hardly. This is a nation with so many laws that we pick and choose which laws to enforce.
We allow our courts to rewrite our Constitution. We allow illegals to openly break our laws. We allow the hideous murder of ailing people and viable human beings. The media breaks our national security laws. We allow our officials to break our laws. No one is held accountable. Recently, members of Congress have contemptuously violated U.S. law by going to Cuba and Syria, insinuating themselves as mediators. These actions are clear violations of the Constitution, to which they are “bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”
To paraphrase Arlen Specter, as a highranking member of Congress, his opinion is as legitimate as the president’s, and he should be allowed a larger role in forming U.S. foreign policy.
Surely, as a high-ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, he should know his delegation to Syria is in violation of the Constitution and the 1799 Logan Act. With usurping RINOs like Mr. Specter and Sen. John McCain, I predict a U.S. Parliament and a figurehead president in our not too distant future.
It was the media’s responsibility to inform us of these violations to the Constitution and the Logan Act; instead they opted to consign the American people to ignorance.
That’s hardly surprising considering the 2006 election year coverage: 88 percent negative for Republicans and 77 percent positive for Democrats. Kimberly A. Harnes Gabbs, Nevada
