  •  Congress is in the habit of passing (0+ / 0-)

    un-Constitutional laws. Think DOMA and DADT, just recently.

    I suspect that one reason they can be so cavalier about the Constitutionality of the laws they pass is that they don't expect the law to be enforced against themselves and their friends. It's only sucker Democrats, goodie-two-shoes that obey the law, regardless. In other words, the law, by the "rule of law" gang, is just another mechanism to insure dominance. The law is their familiar because it lets them deprive others of their welfare and even their lives without leaving any fingerprints. The law is just another tool in their aresenal of weapons to subdue people they don't like.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

      why the rank-and-file Republicans, Tea Partiers, and rednecks are all for drowning the government in a bathtub.  They KNOW that the law is a tool of dominance by the rich bastards, so they'd just as soon be rid of it.
