If Justice is truly blind, then why the need for politically-correct enhancements to existing crime laws? Is the assault, robbery, murder any more tragic if the victim is a member of a protected class? Is the crime any less tragic if the victim is not?
Are some people more equal than others?
Does enhancing the penalty for a crime today atone for the misdeeds of the distant past?
What passes today for Justice is not. The system is perverted to the will of those who are in, and those who are connected. It is the law of the jungle. As it ever was, except for a brief time in our history. This has to change of we are to survive and thrive.
Question: Do we as a nation have the fortitude, the will, the courage, to restore our Nation to the ideals of its founding? Do we have the courage to face Liberty, in all her messy guises, and declare ourselves a Free People once more? Or, would we rather suffocate slowly in our warm and comfortable prisons of Apathy and American Idolatry? Sadly, my guess is the latter.
Anybody care to prove me wrong?
