Rule Of Law Be Damned

by Bradley R. Gitz - May 10, 2009 - Arkansas Democrat Gazette

What the president's bizarre understanding of the judiciary entails is nothing more than a frontal assault on the concept of the rule of law itself. In his glib, arrogant fashion, he wishes to see the idea of "a nation of laws" replaced by "a nation of men" without perhaps even understanding what that shift implies for the integrity of the democratic process and the status of our most cherished liberties.

The impression grows that we have elected a remarkably superficial and ignorant man to the presidency.

Few who have read Alinky's Rules for Radicals and who know how dedicated to its premise Obama has always been would be surprised at the final sentence in this article. Of course there are many who see little difference between Obama's more open defense of this "rule of judges" mentality and the reality of our totally corrupt court system. Between the slavish adoration for this concept by the vast majority of our legal professors in law schools and the majority of judges who embrace the concept, the court system has already been corrupted. The question is what chance exists that "the rule of law" will ever again be supported by our courts?
