Congratulations to all politicians. Now the truth walk begins.
In 1788, Patrick Henry warned that "Congress, from their general powers, may fully go into the business of human legislation." What he meant was that political law is an enactment process. Legislators/lawmakers make changes according to whatever political pressures they happen to be feeling at the moment.
Something that seems right today can be very wrong tomorrow. In fact, under political law the frequent redefining of right and wrong is considered necessary. During re-election, lawmakers proudly boast of the number of new laws they have enacted.
In short, we now live in a world where it is assumed politicians have some divine power to make law.
Business Week says that each year in the United States there are more than 100,000 new laws, rules and regulations enacted. This is a primary reason the economy is a shambles. Tax rates, money supply, trade restrictions, licensing laws and thousands of other factors are stirred around in a witch's brew of regulation.
Political law has no aim at all other than to obtain and use political power for whatever purposes the powerholders decide. Common law historically has had strong popular support, indeed it was the principle upon which this country was founded.
A good friend once said, "Don't believe me, find out for yourself."
