Sailor gets year in prison for taking photos in nuclear sub
The is a travesty! And an abuse of privilege by a member of the elite! And all wasted on Hillary Clinton.
We have lost our republic.
The Republic has Fallen: Brought down by The House of Clinton, criminal, and mendacious to the end
Clinton's actions were a felony, they must be treated like a felony, or we will need to come to grips with the fact that justice, and republic do not apply to all in America.
"Classical republican writers maintained that to be free means to not be dominated--that is, not to be dependent on the arbitrary will of other individuals. The source of this interpretation of political liberty was the principle of Roman law that defines the status of a free person as not being subject to the arbitrary will of another person--in contrast to a slave, who is dependent on another person's will. As the individual is free when he or she has legal and political rights, so a people or a city is free insofar as it lives under its own laws. [...]
Classical republican theorists also stressed that the constraint that fair laws impose on an individual's choices is not a restriction of liberty but an essential element of political liberty itself. They also believed that restrictions imposed by the law on the actions of rulers as well as of ordinary citizens are the only valid shield against coercion on the part of any person or persons. Machiavelli forcefully expressed this belief in his Discourses on Livy (I.29), when he wrote that if there is even one citizen whom the magistrates fear and who has the power to break the law, then the entire city cannot be said to be free. It can be said to be free only when its laws and constitutional orders effectively restrain the arrogance of nobles and the licentiousness of the people."
Republicanism by Maurizio Viroli
The Republic has fallen. Clinton is the elite, one of the ruling class, yet she is above the law. The shield against coercion has been corrupted, and has failed. The nation which began modern republicanism, is fallen. The only option is for Americans to take back their republic, to throw down the elite, and to storm the ramparts which they use to protect themselves from us.
I do not know whether it is time to pick up the pike pole, address this with tar, and feathers, or to simply vote, but it is time, and changes must be made if the republic is to stand.
The people are angry, the rise of both Trump and Sanders attest to this. They will not be quieted with platitudes, or continuation of the status quo.
The elite have failed us, it is time to take back our republic from the incompetent pretenders.
