The Rule of Law’s Glue is Losing its Stickiness

by Maury JonesMauryJones3

We are a nation of law. Obeying the rule of law is what gives stability to a society. It is the glue that holds civilization together.

When I lived in Korea no one obeyed the traffic laws. The cab drivers drove with their horns and gas pedals. When pulled over the cabbie would apologize to the cop and hand him a matchbox. Inside was money. A bribe. If the cop started to write a ticket the cabbie would hand him another matchbox. Then the cop would wave him on his way. That corruption is the direction this nation is headed.

Laws are supposed to be written for anyone to understand. However, by way of didactic erudition, recent legislative bills have manufactured a labyrinth of voluminous regimental codification utilizing a plethora of legalese jargon which obfuscates the nuances of the miasmic convolution of noxious regulations imposed on us ignorant cowboys. If more common sense cowboys are locked up in jail then the huddled masses yearning to breathe free can be more easily controlled by the ruling class. These complicated laws are by design, not by accident.

Breaking the law is a crime. Those who commit crimes are criminals. Most of those who sneak across our southern border are decent God-fearing people looking for a better life. I’ve known many who are truly wonderful people. But they are not “undocumented workers”. They are invaders. They are criminals. I am not in any way prejudiced against Mexicans but it violates my sense of justice when they get rewarded for breaking the law. The sheer numbers of invaders strain our welfare system, our schools, our medical facilities, and our law enforcement capabilities. Some are drug runners and criminals escaping from justice in Mexico. They bring crime with them. This administration refuses to prosecute even these violent invaders. And some cities give them sanctuary, causing the deaths of innocent Americans.

Government-sponsored refugees are given asylum in our neighborhoods. A few of them want to kill infidels. That includes me and you. It is almost impossible to determine which ones are terrorists. Political correctness cannot escape that fact.

Wyoming public servants may also be breaking the law. On July 27 this newspaper [Jackson Hole News&Guide] reported the sale of some private land to the Bridger-Teton National Forest. It says “the deed was secured by the United States of America.” Maybe it’s a good thing but is this land transfer lawful?

The Constitution does not allow the federal government to own land within the states. Article 1 Section 8 Clause 17 of the Constitution empowers the federal government to have full authority over the District of Columbia and “… to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.” So, what military installations or needful buildings does the Bridger-Teton National Forest plan on putting on those 71 acres? I’d be willing to bet the legislature of the State of Wyoming did not give its consent to the transfer. Had they done so, they would have violated the US Constitution. Violating the Constitution is a crime. Government officials take an oath to obey the Constitution. By definition, those who participated in the sale of that land broke the law, committed a crime, and are therefore criminals. But it’s for a good cause so what difference, at this point, does it make?

In another apparent violation of the law by government, a formal complaint has just been filed in Wyoming against Senator Eli Bebout, Senate President Philip Nicholas, the members of the Senate Rules Committee, and Governor Mead. The complaint alleges that Senator Bebout was allowed to argue for and vote on legislation which resulted in his company getting millions in state contracts without competitive bidding. This violates the Wyoming Constitution as well as statutes and regulations. Should these allegations prove true, these officials broke the law. Many politicians think they can commit a crime, hand us a matchbox and we will be pacified.

Ignoring the law is becoming commonplace in our government. You’ve seen the news. Some high-profile people get away with lawbreaking while those less connected go to jail for the same crime. Politicians are caught in blatant lies. It was absolutely shocking when the FBI Director prosecuted his case against Hillary Clinton and then said no charges would be filed, adding, “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.” An open admission that who she is means more to our Justice Department than what she did. Both sides of the aisle should be outraged at this double standard. But what difference, at this point, does it make?

We, the People, must insist our public officials stay within the law. If they do not, they are criminals and must be prosecuted and suffer the consequences, just as you or I would for committing a crime. To do otherwise destroys the foundation of our freedoms.

Remember, life is always better when viewed from between the ears of a horse.”
