when the people realize that the courts can do what they please with anyone's life on mere hearsay, they will rise up with vengeance.
Of course, courts have been doing this for ages. But it is hereby exposed without a possibility of doubt, this abuse of power in all its wanton arrogance.
No one -- no one who can speak for himself, that is -- will accept an adverse court ruling again, whether he is guilty or not, until credibility is re-established. That could take generations.
Brace yourselves, sports fans. The rule of law has passed.
To Hell. In a handbasket.
Mr. Edwards, I have read the complete article printed in the CNP and must agree 100% with its content. Now, the question is, "How do we change it back to what our founding fathers intended"
I have taken notice of a FR march on Washibgton for April 9th. From what I read in FR the march is to demonstrate how we as a nation feel about this Judicial Dictatorship we all live under. Well, so be it, BUT,
I can tell everyone that the only thing that can make a politican do anything is to threaten his existance at the Ballot Box. Republicans, Democrats and Independents know and understand this. I would propose that FR withdraw its support and votes to those whoever is in power and fail to use that power as as the people would like,and that WE the People have given them. I know that a lot of FREEPERS will disagree, but in my 72 years of life, Withdrawel of support is the only thing a politican understands. Thank you for the article
Laws result from two things: morals and money.
When people talk about laws and morals they seem to think they're two different things. Not so. When morals are made into laws, something can happen to you if you don't accept the morals.
The issue is whose morals, or whose money? Plus, whose morals will interpret those already on the books?
while not news, it is well put and a great editorial!
thanks for posting it.
one might add (in the flavor of Rabbi Art Katz) that it is "sloppy sentimentality" that will get us killed. First because it is not predicated on holy righteousness, but man's emotional perversions/distortions of truth. Secondly, we can look to repeated historical examples and derive the logical outcome of twisted thought processes.
The answer is that once you get a certain percentage of people drinking the elixir of government dependency, democratic processes are powerless in stopping the advance of socialism and, eventually, communism and its inevitable collapse.
In teaching business, I often point to one of the big flaws in strategic planning. A firm adopts a strategy that dictates it take on debt. After that, the debt dictates the strategy. That's where we are as a country right now. As much as we'd like to reverse the situation, our debts dictate our strategy, and so long as the debt-ridden get to decide what to do next, the "solution" will always be more debt and dependency.
As Marx well understood, God is the biggest obstacle because Christianity teaches that each individual has self-worth. That simply won't do in a society that is one step away from confiscating every 401K and allocating out the cash based on some government formula based on the prescription: "to each according to his need."
Where is America going? Into the third-world gutter as long as we keep importing the third-world.
