This all boils down to a fundamental difference between Leftists and Conservatives.
Conservatives generally have core values we adhere to, everything from property rights to individual rights. One of those core values is that respect and adherence to law.
Leftists have no such anchor. To them, their values are whatever is expedient to achieve their goals, whatever those goals are. In short, the the ends always justify the means.
This is 100% clear from observing the conduct of the Left since Trump was elected, specifically with respect to the Mueller Probe.
They conducted that in exactly the same way any tyrannical government entity would have conducted it, using the full power of the state to coerce individuals. I guarantee you, if it were in their power to do so, they would be fully on board with confinement and torture of people to obtain what was needed to get Trump out of office.
They would have conducted it as the Soviet Union or Cuba would have.
The fact that that is a line they cannot cross (yet) is the only reason it didn’t happen.
There are some who say we should use the same practices of the Left against them. I surely don’t support that.
But what I do support is the full prosecution allowed by LAW. And the fact that it appears now that we as Americans are going to have to accept (the fact that there are different sets of law depending on who you are) is a tough one to swallow, but becoming unavoidable.
“tough one to swallow”
Yup, “professional courtesy” flies in the face of “equal protection under the law”.
Apparently, being a government or political “professional” is comparable to a title of nobility. I thought we tried to slough that off in 1776...
There is an aspect of this you (and others) are seriously missing. Once they have done what they have been caught doing they lose the right to play with the rest of us. At least that is the way it SHOULD be. But, alas, no. They get to just keep playing like it didnt happen. So you can bet your ass they WILL do it again and in fact, have PROBABLY done it before and didnt get caught whic is why they feel entitled to get away with it this time. IOW, we would be goddam idiots to keep playing with them as if nothing happened. These people simply have to be brought to Justice or its over. Trump is the last president. We would be the biggest suckers in the history of mankind to continue to pretend The Constitution means a damned thing or that this is even our country if these crimes go unpunished.
