For that matter, why should you and I follow the laws?
Do we have a Nation of Laws, or a Nation of Anarchy?
So a Federal Judge decided to let the Customs and Border Control folks resume transporting Illegal Immigrants to communities around Texas…despite the fact that Texas Governor Abbott had an Executive Order making that illegal (note that these illegal immigrants are being transported to towns without Covid testing, without quarantine…endangering public health in Texas….and spreading the disease that the Federal Government claims is a deadly threat to all Americans.
Now, a question: Since the Biden administration is ignoring the Supreme Court of the United States regarding the illegal CDC moratorium on evictions (The CDC has no power to order such an action according to the Court, and Congress has not passed legislation for a moratorium on evictions) and has still enforced and allowed the Moratorium to continue, damaging Landlords financially (no rent paid)…..Why should Texas obey the order of the Western District Court? The Feds have ignored an order from an even higher court, so why should an order from a lower court have any sway?
Either we have the Rule of Law, or we don’t. If not, fine, let us play by those rules. But they can’t have it both ways. Either the Courts and the Law are obeyed, or they aren’t. No “Pick and Choose” here. Either the rule of law is the way we and our society operate, or there is no law.
Pick one. I sincerely doubt that the Federal Government will like it if their laws have no power….but that is how they apparently want it. If so, then if the laws don’t apply to the Government, then they don’t apply to you and I as well.
Anarchy is what happens when laws have no power.
This oughta be fun, in a wild and crazy sort of way.
