15. It always bothers me when people say "rule of law" and "the law is the law"

Law making has always been abused by those who scream the loudest to follow it.

Look at laws we have had in this country:

Laws preventing women from voting
Laws enabling slavery
Slave codes to control the conduct of a slave
Fugitive Slave Law
Black Codes
Poll Tax
Jim Crow laws
Separate but equal laws
Chinese Exclusion Act
Asia Act - expanding the Chinese Exclusion Act to all Asians in 1924
Redlining Codes
Anti-miscegenation laws that would make my marriage illegal in 37 states before 1967
Anti-sodomy laws designed to make homosexual acts illegal
Anti Right to Die laws (dogs can be given a painless, merciful death, but humans need to suffer right to the end)
Pro-hanger for abortion laws
Outlawing obscenity laws (as Lenny Bruce said, if you outlaw the "F" word, you outlaw the ability to say "F the Government."
Civil Forfeiture laws
Qualified Immunity laws
Removal of civil rights laws for felons
Credit rating applying to car insurance premiums laws
USA PATRIOT Act (that was supposed to be temporary)

And now all these voting restriction laws, that are a problem looking for a solution because the Republicans LOST in the election.
