Column #430 November 24, 2023
Our government was established with very limited powers. Basically its powers were restricted to establishing federal laws (Congress and Senate), enforcing laws (Supreme Court), and defending the country (presidential powers). The basic idea was that the government was to serve the people by protecting their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Without the rule of law, there’s chaos. In fact, citizens are no longer free if their rights are not preserved by a just legal system. If our government runs rouge, it is no better than anythird world dictatorship run by a tyrant.
