The interviewee convincingly talked about how the government brought its full forces of armed men, Tasers and helicopters to take the owner’s cattle. Yet the same government refused to enforce laws on immigration, enforce laws against the political abuse of the IRS and refuses to implement the laws of Obamacare because the program is so obviously a disaster.
What Francis emphasized that the government only enforces laws against law abiding citizens and refuses to enforce laws against selected minorities. In effect, there is both anarchy (no meaningful enforcement of the law) and tyranny by only enforcing the laws against those already obeying it.
It should be pointed out that Obama only follows George Bush in his open refusal to enforce our immigration laws. Under our current immigration law it is illegal—punishable by fines and imprisonment—to employ, harbor or induce illegal aliens to come into or remain in the country. [8 U.S. Code § 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens]But this measure a good deal of the Republican Party, the Dems, and a good deal of organized religion should be in jail.
