I thought we sort of declined that whole "rule" thing about 232 years ago?
I think we are straying further and further from the intended function of government, which was stated so elegantly more than 2 centuries ago:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
I missed the part about "rule" in there somewhere, didn't I?
The Constitution was designed as a document whereby free men could establish a completely free way to govern themselves, with a framework that the people agreed on. We continue to add to those rules, usually at our detriment.
Lets get back to basics!!
