Why Eric Holder Could Be The Reason You Can’t Get A Job

What separates a great nation from a banana republic?  The answer is simple; it’s the rule of law.  It is the notion that the leader of a country is not above the law but subject to it like everyone else.  If you travel to many seedy parts of the world, this concept is not the case.  The law of the land in these jurisdictions is whatever the dear leader says it is. No one in government is ever held accountable, unless you upset the dear leader.  This situation leads to corruption throughout all levels of society, from the policeman to the ministers and members of the legislature.  It reduces economic activity, entrepreneurship, and innovation.  This is why societies like China, Russia, and other dictatorial regimes do not have tsunamis of creatively destructive ideas as in the West.  They simply copy the innovations of other nations.  America is losing the rule of law and will suffer the political and economic consequences.  In fact, one could make the case that we are already feeling these consequences.

It doesn’t take much digging to find examples of our government flouting the rule of law.  We have an administration that will not enforce immigration law for political reasons.  We have the attorney general of these United States telling state attorneys’ general that they can ignore laws that have been passed by their legislatures.  We have a president who selectively enforces and changes law on a whim.  We have an attorney general who will not investigate voter intimidation, federal agencies that intimidate individual citizens and opposition groups, or anything that would bring discredit upon people and ideas he agrees with.  My friends, in America, we have corruption, pure and simple.

What is even more striking is the absence of a serious media outcry against this tyranny.  This is because the mainstream media is knee deep in corruption as well.  In the past, the media acted as a counterforce against a corrupt government.  Reporters sniffed out evidence of wrongdoing and exposed it as they believed that was good for the country.  This no longer is the case.

What is worse than a compliant media is the refusal of the opposition party to take legal and constitutional action against this corruption.  Refusal to act is the same as acquiescence.  The Republican Party, and Congress in general, has not stood up to this president.  He breaks the law at will and is not held accountable.

People wonder why our economy is suffering and unemployment is high.  People who voted for Obama wonder why they can’t find a job.  It is because in the absence of the rule of law, business hesitates.  They don’t hire or build new plants. They play it safe.  Taking risks in this environment can lead to disaster for a business as the dear leader can make or break you at will.  He is above the law.  It’s the same way in Russia.  Their economy suffers greatly from corruption.  Business cannot effectively operate unless you are a friend of the establishment.  America is headed in this direction.

    Since Congress is useless to stop these enemies from within I pray for God to take care of the problem or should I say problems, especially those self serving dimwits who thinks they are above the law, sooner or later God will take care of it and it won't be pretty

    The actions of the Department of INJustice (DOINJ, the most thoroughly corrupt, political, and scrupulously biased Department in the nation’s history) under holder are not just incompetent and slimy, they threaten the very rule of law in our nation. holder was nominated to help enforce those laws. Rather than running his office as a servant to the American people with deep respect for the laws that he is supposed to enforce, holder runs the DOINJ like the enforcement wing of a mafia organization, “you don’t want to go there, buddy”, what a thug. He acts as Obama’s personal attorney and hit man, doing whatever is necessary to protect him and ‘the family', even if it means unlawful acts. He doesn’t have a right to break the law; his job is to ensure rights of the people, not to strip them away. He is appointed to magnify the law against crime, he has instead repeatedly magnified crime against the law. America has seen a number of egregious and unlawful acts by the man who is supposed to serve as the main legal advisor to the United States government. Instead, holder uses his office as a weapon to push Obama’s radical, unconstitutional agenda and to punish those who disagree with him. He has failed in his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. Because Holder has so egregiously violated the public trust, Obama should ask for his immediate resignation. If Obama does not, the message will be unmistakable: Obama believes he is above the Constitution and the rule of law.” It is OUR responsibility to uphold the laws of our republic and hold our public servants to their oaths of office to uphold and defend the Constitution. He is permitting the DOINJ to trample on the First Amendment and he has failed in his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. The very rule of law is at stake and the credibility of every law enforcement officer in the U.S. If our top law enforcement agency refuses to follow the law, there is no rule of law, and this is no longer America

    I think Holder is just a whinny crybaby who is the worst AG this country ever had worst then Janet Reno.
