Undermining America

America’s exceptionalism is founded on the principle that all men are created equal and therefore are entitled to blind justice in the application of the rule of law. When rules are fairly and equally enforced, every person has opportunity and is encouraged to do the best they can: that’s how the human race improves.

When rules are not fairly and equally enforced, two parties suffer. The party that is denied justice is prevented from accomplishing to their potential; those favored by the injustice quickly discover their benefits are not because of their performance, but regardless of it; and treat the benefit not as accomplishment, but as entitlement. In both cases, society suffers the loss of innovation and efficiency.

Now we have an administration that is either ignorant of history or willfully ignoring history, one that doesn’t believe in the free market and doesn’t accept the principles of American exceptionalism. This administration ignores the sovereignty of citizens and wrongly presumes that government has authority to mandate and control every facet of societal life by circumventing the clearly enumerated limitations of government authority expounded in the Constitution.

The epitome of this administration’s absurdity is its refusal to faithfully execute the immigration laws of the United States; and to do so by illegal executive order whereby the rule of law is not only ignored; but failure to obey the law is rewarded with the greatest prize imaginable: effective US citizenship.

No rational person should find such illegal action acceptable: to presume that “domestic tranquility” can be assured by waiving compliance to US law for tens of millions of illegal aliens flocking to America because this administration refuses to enforce our laws.

Regardless of how it is rationalized, undermining the rule of law on which our society is founded can only lead to the destruction of America.

In what world is this a rational act of government?
