Comment: Selective enforcement should be illegal

Selective enforcement should be illegal

Another (of many) glaring holes the Founders left in the Constitution.

By some estimates the "average" American "breaks" something like 4 laws per day. I don't know how the calculation was made nor what "average" means but I strongly suspect that with selective enforcement in full play the reality is grossly higher. And higher still for anyone who chooses to rise above "average" in business or any other endeavor under the tight thumb of the government. And add in regulations which "interpret" the laws and laws which interact with other laws and .... Well, it's a mess out there.

But it's heaven for a tyrant because it means that anyone can be taken down at any time by WHIM of the then Criminal in Chief.

There should be no room for "executive orders". They make a mockery of Rule of Law.

There should be no room for selective enforcement of a law. If a law is bad it should be thrown out by official process (judicial or legislative anullment).

There should be no room for a government representative to SELECTIVELY enforce laws. It should be criminally prosecutable and/or there should be a get-out-of-jail-free card for anyone who can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they are being targeted by a law which other people are given a pass on.

It should also be the case for governments -- as it is for Corporations and their "veil" of personhood -- that breaking the law results in piercing the veil. That is, people who work for government should be individually open to suit and to criminal prosecution if it can be proven that something was done illegally.

The Constitution of the US is massively riddled with both termite holes and holes which were designed in from the beginning and which encourage termites, rats, and other pests. Don't hold your breath waiting for anything meaningful to be fixed. The vermin are fully in control of the system now. They own you.

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28
