I am disappointed. It seems the majority of my fellow Americans think it is OK to have an elite political class of people who are above the law. Apparently... many Americans believe we should allow our leaders to do whatever they want to... and not be held accountable for their actions. This saddens me. One of the key principles of our Republic is that we are all equal. A cornerstone of our legal system is that nobody is above the law. Nobody is "too big to prosecute." I find it very disturbing that millions of Americans genuinely believe our laws do not apply to the political elite. This is the EXACT sort of thing that caused America to rebel against The British, in the first place. America DOES NOT have a "ruling class." Our laws apply to all citizens. And, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Remember that? I am fed up with this Ruling Class mentality... and... even worse... I am very concerned that so many Americans are willing to accept it. The idea there a certain class of person... who achieves a certain status... is not subject to the law defies everything our nation stands for. Elite politicians who just wave off their criminal acts because they think they are above the law are not going to solve any of our problems. They ARE the problem. -
