We are seeing the end of the American Republic and it is really hard to argue otherwise.
Americans have this belief that the Republic will simply survive forever. They think America will survive the Clintons, the Obamas, the Party of Treason and continue on as we have known it all of our lives.
The sad truth is we are watching the collapse of the Republic.
The signs of the collapse are all around us. The Constitution is regarded mostly as a joke. The constraints it puts on government are ignored by the elites. And there is a separate set of rules for the elites.
Hillary Clinton is the prima fascie example of this. No one doubts that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified materials while she was Secretary of State. There is no doubt that she used a private email server to try and evade Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. In doing so, she put classified information on that system that every nation, with the possible exception of Aruba, then accessed.
There is also no doubt that she did everything possible to hid this server, hide emails that were on this server and to destroy evidence when word got out about her email arrangement.
Had anyone not named Hillary Clinton done this, their name would have been front and center on a federal indictment. Instead, the FBI director James Comey, beclowns himself claiming Clinton did not “intend” to break the law.
Her team used a product called “Bleachbit” to wipe out every email that she wanted hidden. They are all gone and as Congressman Trey Gowdy said, “Even God could not read those emails.”
Those emails were, at the time they were destroyed, the subject of several inquiries, including a congressional inquiry. Martha Stewart went to prison for far less.
Unfortunately, there is a double standard now in American justice. There are laws that apply to everyone and there are laws that do not apply to the elites in this nation. Had the average citizen done what Hillary Clinton did, their prison sentence would be measured in decades, not just years.
Yet it is entirely possible that in two short months, Hillary Clinton could be elected President.
One of the things that made America not only great, but free, was the concept of the Rule of Law. It did not matter who you were, the law applied to everyone equally.
As the Roman Empire declined and fell, one of the stark contrasts with the past, was the rule of law. Rome had a legal system that was generally fair. But as the Empire tottered towards destruction, the laws no longer applied to the ruling class. Then the citizens became disrespectful of the law and the whole legal system collapsed.
We are seeing the same thing today in America. How can any juror in a federal criminal case be expected to convict someone when the Federal Government ignores Hillary Clinton’s law breaking?
Laws are for the little people. Or so that is what the elites says.
And so passes the rule of law and ultimately the American Republic.
