Big Dangers as Obama Democrats Flout Budget Laws (Lawless RATS?)

**SNIP**

What are citizens to do when their government refuses to follow its own laws?

The answers to this question throughout history have been hugely unhappy. When individuals in government de-legitimize their own institutions by breaking the rules, rebellion, repression and general lawlessness have often been the result.

This is why the rule of law has been so central to happy, healthy and prosperous lives since Cicero was still in swaddling.

Americans have done better at this than anyone else, having inherited the love of the law from our British progenitors. The Founding Fathers took it a step further by ditching the idea of a monarch altogether and crafting what has become the world’s oldest and most revered national charter. The Constitution was a fulcrum point in human history and the greatest gift from the Framers to their nation: a government of laws, not men.

it’s NOT rebellion when people overthrow corrupt government. It’s revolt.

rebellion is illegally attemtping to remove lawful government.

they are used identically but they most definitely are not identical.

Of course you're right.
Laws mean nothing to these people.

The problem is that when we cease to be ruled by laws and are subject to the whims of men, we have fully transitioned to tyranny.

The implications are devastating.

I've been asking this very question since the illegal Obamacare debacle. The illegal bill that Nancy had to pass before we could find out what was in it.

They got away with it and we've been speeding up on that slippery slope since.

My question back then is unchanged. What options does the average citizen have when blatant illegality rules? That question has never been seriously discussed or answered.
