The Virtual Vitamin

A Daily Dose of Insight and Common Sense

Are Stop Signs Merely Suggestions?

Were laws meant to be broken? What laws are okay to break?  Is it okay to go over the speed limit, cheat on taxes, use recreational drugs, download copyrighted media, or remain in the country illegally?  Is the law written in ink or sand?  What happens to a nation built on the rule of law when the law is not respected, even by those entrusted to uphold it?  Are we still a country of laws and not men, if men decide what laws to enforce?  Equal justice under the law does not discriminate.  Sympathy, political agendas, and subjective enforcement are unconstitutional.  It is not the right of executive or judicial powers to discriminate against legislation rightfully passed.  The separation of powers and the Constitution are for the protection of the people and the states.  Legislative representation acts as the voice of the people, and the people have spoken.
