The Rule Of Law Is Based On Numbers
©2006 James Atticus Bowden
Rule of Law is based on the numbers of men and women of good will
who obey the Rule of Law. The
Rule of Law is diminished and, ultimately, destroyed when too many
men and women reject the spirit of the law and refuse the letter of
the law. The Rule of Law
has been threatened in the
gotten progressively worse with more legislative and executive
powers seized by judges and unchallenged by legislators and
executives throughout the federal system of governments.
The impeachment of President Clinton was a clear indication
that the majority of the United States Senate thought so little of
the Rule of Law that they failed to do their duty and hold a trial.
The failure of the legislature and governor of
President Bush’s two appointments to SCOTUS may help swing the pendulum away from Judicial Tyranny, but the Nation is still short one Justice of a constructionist majority. The Rule of Law begins with the number 5 – for 5 justices who don’t make up laws to the Rule Over the Laws.
Immigration may decide if the Nation, as described in
the current Immigration laws on the books are not enforced then the
Rule of Law is mocked. The
Rule of Law requires a minimum number of 1 – for 1 President who
will enforce the borders and maintain our sovereignty against a
illegal immigrant invasion.
Senate voted for the ‘Shamnesty’ Bill to let illegal aliens make
us a Nation of scofflaws, not laws.
The Senate is at least 10 senators short of the 51 vote
majority to uphold and defend the Constitution.
The Rule of Law requires at least 10 more Conservative
House has a slim majority – enough to support Impeachment when the
Chief Executive lies to a grand jury and enough to support closing
the borders first and foremost to protect national sovereignty.
The Rule of Law requires keeping enough of the same brave
souls in the People’s House.
takes a different number of voters to keep the Rule of Law alive –
election by election. From
school board to President of the
last number of great importance – and there are many significant
numbers left unmentioned in this piece – is how many men will
serve to fight in the Armed Services.
The Rule of Law needs a basic number of brave citizens to
bear arms to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign
Rule of Law requires, as it did in 1776 and 1861, enough Patriots,
under arms in the field or serving at the hearth, placing personal
and family safety and survival at a total risk to pledge their
“life, liberty, and sacred honor” on written principles.
If a third of 300 million Americans – 100 million men,
women and children, young and old – are such Patriots, then the
Rule of Law can be
preserved – no matter what.
