Pollster Rasmussen is shocked… SHOCKED… to find that people are losing their respect for laws and the courts.
Rasmussen’s new survey found that now a third (33%) of likely U.S. voters support the rights of states to ignore federal court rulings, a 9-point increase from February. The number opposing states’ rights to override the federal courts fell by six points to 52 percent, while 15 percent remain undecided.
Rasmussen declares that what is “even more disturbing” about the findings is that those who support the states are Republicans and conservatives, those who “traditionally have been the most supportive of the Constitution and the separation of powers.”
What Rasmussen is missing is that Rule of Law in this country has been undermined by the ruling party for political purposes, and that’s why Conservatives have lost faith in the courts.
Illegal Aliens are essentially exempt from American law. The president lawlessly decided to wave his hand and nullify immigration laws passed by the legislature.
The Supreme Court gives itself the power to write marriage laws for all fifty states, on the basis that gay people’s feelings get hurt and there is a Constitutional right to “dignity.”
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton… commits a string of felonies… mishandling classified data, influence peddling, tax evasion… and is untouched by the law.
Democrat Governor Jon Corzine bilks investors out of billions, and walks away scot-free.
But Christian bakeries and Gibson Guitars get legally curb-stomped for political incorrectness.
The reason people are losing faith in the ‘Rule of Law.’ and Separation of Powers is because it’s become very clear that the political leadership and their activist mob groups are using the law as a tool to punish political opponents. There is no more equality under the law; the law has become just a political weapon wielded by Democrats and their voting constituencies to punish the other side.
And people who aren’t angry about it are ignorant or like that the law is being used in this way.
