Glenn Reynolds Gets It

Yesterday, I was heartened to see I am not the only one who is convinced perpetrators of such Obama Regime enormities as IRS/ATF/OSHA/etc targeting should be imprisoned for the sake of justice and our nation’s future.  Glenn Reynolds of InstaPundit fame also gets it:

Enough breaches of trust -- and I haven't even started to hit all the scandals out there, by a long shot -- and ordinary people will start to assume that the whole system is corrupt. And if that happens, people will quit following the law because they think it's the right thing to do, and only do so to the extent they're afraid of getting caught. Plenty of countries operate on that principle. They're just not as nice to live in as countries where the law has moral stature. When government officials breach trust, they push us closer to that sort of third world condition. Which is why, when they're found doing so, they should be punished severely.

Exactly.  Through targeting and muzzling opposition political speech, NSA lawbreaking, ATF gun running, numerous cover-ups and more, much more, the Obama Regime has again and again undermined Constitutional freedoms and the rule of law.

It’s high time the law fights back.

The current Administration wants the United States to be a "Third World" nation. You know, the Zimbabwe of North America.
