To those of us who have been paying attention to the news for a while, we saw Hillary Clinton getting left off the hook by the FBI from a mile away. Some of us are actually laughing at it. In reality the whole investigation was nothing but a dog and pony show. My question is, did the Hillary non-indictment actually wake more people up to the joke that is the U.S. justice system, or is most of the anger just because of Hillary Clinton?
I see all over social media people saying that the “Republic is Dead” and that “Justice does not exist”. The truth of the matter is that the republic has been dying a slow death for decades; from Lincoln suspending Habeas Corpus, Woodrow Wilson arresting and deporting critics of the U.S. entry into World War 1, and the Japanese interment under Roosevelt, there are thousands of examples in U.S. history of politicians flat out abusing the citizenry and never facing punishment for their crimes. Sure once in a while the people are thrown a bone, but overall punishment for the big offenders is far and few between.
I also notice that majority of these people that are saying this are also ones who are against police accountability or label any type of reform to police militarization as “being soft on crime” among other things. The reality of the fact is that if you’re against holding one section of the government (the enforcer class) accountable, don’t freak out when another section of the government (political class) gets the same kind of glove treatment.
I’ve have been saying for awhile that in the U.S. there are three types of laws:
One set for politicians, their cronies and their enforcers, a second set for celebrities and athletes, and last a third set for the rest of us.
To quote George Carlin: “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it”
The next question is, are the people that are angry actually ready to hate the state, or do they just want their brand of statism in charge at the District of Criminals? If one just wants a leader wearing their colors, then they have learned nothing. Most people who just want a different criminal in charge just want the state jackboots to go after their respective outgroups while pretending to be for liberty.
Secession, decentralization and nullification are certainly steps forward. At the bare minimum, those who support secession (including myself) recognize that Washington D.C. is beyond reform, and other methods must be explored. I’m not going to claim to have the grand answer, but it is an important step forward to realize that no matter who is in charge, the state is 100% evil.
