'A Nation of Laws (Sometimes)'

At the height of Kim Davis controversy the establishment relished in reminding us that ‘We’re a nation of laws.’

Jeb Bush said of Davis,  “She is sworn to uphold the law, and it seems to me that there ought to be common ground, there ought to be big enough space for her to act on her conscience and — now that the law is the law of the land — for a gay couple to be married in whatever jurisdiction that is.”

But Jeb! & other establishment types want to ignore decades of immigration laws that passed with bipartisan support in congress and that were signed by Presidents from both parties.

Bush said during last Tuesday’s debate that to even discuss enforcing the law, “sends a powerful signal – they’re doing high-fives in the Clinton campaign right now when they hear this. That’s the problem with this. We have to win the presidency.”

And just like that, we’re no longer a ‘nation of laws.’

One second there’s a standard we must accept and live by . The next second, all that matters it what Clinton campaign staffers think is the smart political play.

That’s the height of hypocrisy. But “journalists” ignore this glaring contradiction because they’re against Davis and for amnesty.   In other words, we’re not a nation ruled by law, we’re nation ruled by a left wing media.

It may not be possible to nominate a candidate who everyone agrees with on everything; but we deserve a nominee who is consistent in their core beliefs about our nation. But before we demand  that Jeb state what he believes rules this nation, we ought to give his staffers the chance to ask Clinton staffers what they think the right answer is. That’s all the leadership we can expect from the self-described ‘adult in the room.”
