Today there are many analogies to illustrate the growing separation of the American people. Some of these seem almost insurmountable, some are very obvious and some are hidden. One of those that is just below the surface is the application of the law. A big part of our American greatness has been the equal application of the law. The saying “Nobody is above the law” is going away very quickly.
One example now in the news, is the temporary suspension of Rudy Giuliani’s Law License for expressing his client’s opinion of the conduct of the last election. Regardless of someone’s opinion of that election, an attorney should be able to represent his client’s position on the subject, that’s what lawyers do. If we were to consider how many attorneys make statements that are later proven untrue, the entire field would have their law license revoked.
Could this be a payback to those that supported Trump? Could it be possible that Trump supporters are being punished by those from the other side? Are there any others that were put in some kind of jeopardy because they supported the wrong side? What about Rodger Stone the republican supporter who was arrested early one morning by a fully armed swat team supported by a CNN camera crew, lucky for them he was in his pajamas and couldn’t resist.
How about the full Muller investigation, where millions were spent for nothing? The arrest of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the prosecution even when the Dept. of Justice wanted to drop the case. So it goes, if you’re with Trump you’re in jeopardy. There are numerous others cases which we have all seen in the news.
However, if you are on the other side of the fence, you’re in the clear for most everything. The best example is Hillary Clinton who destroyed 30 thousand subpoenaed e-mails. Now if you or I did something like that we would go directly to jail and probably still be there. And what about Joe Biden threating the Ukrainian’s government with the loss of aid if they didn’t fire a government prosecutor who was investigating the company that his son sits on the Board of Directors. Of course, his son has had so many close escapes even though he has been caught red handed. Many other democrats have also been let to slide in comparable circumstances. Then there is “Black Lives Matter” and Antifa who can riot, steal and burn but nobody goes to jail except maybe for a few hours at most.
Unfortunately, this double standard cuts our country off from being under equal justice for all. If you’re on the left your free and clear but on the right and your dead. Equal justice under the law is one of the key underpinnings of our country’s greatness. You must wonder how so many good people could ignore these illegal offences. How can our legislators and our legal staff from whatever party who have sworn to uphold the Constitution accept total disregard of the law for some and maximum attacks and prosecution on others based on their party?
People’s lives are being ruined because they supported the wrong party. Some are calling people white supremist just because they supported Donald Trump. Those that are privileged and those who are not, is the foundation for separation and that seems to be the direction we are headed. Is there any hope that one party will clean up its act and apply the law equally?
