    is never done by conceding to the opponent "what the law allows".  There are questions of values, appropriateness, honor and integrity, and those are the ground politics, as opposed to law enforcement, are or should be fought out on.  Although I realize that in the modern US, even blatant violations of the law and every historic moral code of decency are allowed to slide when the right and center do them.  (cf. torture)

    Winning politics makes a public laughing-stock of right-wingers trying to claim to be advancing "social welfare".

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
