Judge Andrew Napolitano on How All Three Branches of Government Are Acting Above the Law
In our era, the violations of the Rule of Law
have become most troublesome when the government breaks its own
laws. Prosecute Roger Clemens for lying to Congress? What about all
the lies Congress tells? Prosecute John Edwards for cheating? What
about all the cheating in Congress when it enacts laws it hasn’t
read? Bring the troops home from the Middle East? What about all
the innocents killed secretly by the president using CIA drones?
Can’t find a way to justify Obamacare under the Constitution? Why
not call it what its proponents insisted it isn’t—a tax?
We live in perilous times. The president acts above the Rule of
Law and fights his own wars. Congress acts below the Rule of Law by
