    Well said.

    The law is the law and politicians come and go and the sooner the better. It's amazing a politician can cause unfold misery, death and destruction, and yet we keep quiet and only make a noise when other nations do the same. Politicians have taken us into the middle east on a pack of lies which has caused the death of thousands and yet the media stays quite comfortable in the security of their job.

    Common sense thinking, but unfortunately these charlatans in government buy respect using our tax money from there local constituency whose character isn't much better.

    They , the politicians have lost respectability. Moving away from our Founding principals and fundamentals of decent behavior toward our fellow man. Weeds in the garden. Invasive, unnatural. Socialism, likened unto ivy, chocking our Tree of Liberty. Wear a good pair of gloves, and cut it out and away from the base of the Tree. Then the vines die and blow away with the coming storm.

    Politicians don't even know what the law is (law of nature and of nature's God) to respect or disrespect it. The entire body politic, inclusive of MSM, promotes theocratic immorality, and injustice (compelled compliance, victimless crimes, government licensing, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.), and non-recognition of liberty, inalienable rights and perfected allodium at a legal philosophy generalized as legal positivism. Currently, no system of "law" and/or "justice" exist. Tyrannous codes, ordinances, regulations, rules and statutes are exponentially growing and changing with no tie or association to liberty or inalienable rights.

    As to “respect”, being a race of nobility, we (I) would do well to have a relation or reference of high or special regard / esteem - to and for each and every palpable child of God. Respecting the actions of such beings is another story. A healthy ‘dis’respect for actions against the individual noble sovereign can be a good thing.

    An unforeseen Q "leap" through/by the laws of nature, as has been heard said, by a politician, "it must be Divine Providence" that has brought about the election of President Trump. Yet it has been known for a very long time, "Liberty is encrypted within the laws of nature, as it should be." WWG1WGA MAGA
