It seems to me the Right Wing Radical punditry on all available media just can’t get enough of calling our President and the Progressive American Administration “Lawless.”
“Lawless” seems to be the new song and dance whenever the right wing radicalist advocates of their bubble-encapsulated version of a law-abiding “Christian America” get a microphone in their hands or a TV camera in their faces.
Oh yes . . . that awful Lawlessness of this president and this administration!” Horrid lawlessness! Inexcusable lawlessness! Unconstitutional lawlessness!
Of course there is nothing at all “Lawless” about people “Standing up to the tyrannical Federal Government, - – - (The government that the majority of Americans consider to be Of The People, By The People and For The People) – - – guns in hand, all locked, loaded and ready for action” and refusing to pay their back taxes is there? There is nothing about a bunch of armed and apparently – - – ( apparent to me anyhow) – - – insurrectionist “Private” militia “Patriots” ganging up in a Nevada desert all armed and ready to send their women in as human shields to protect their “Rights” against the “lawless” regime in Washington is there? Nothing “Lawless” about that kind of stuff is there?
You know I think it was President Reagan ( A Conservative ) who signed the law about paying taxes for using public lands into “Law” in the first place, wasn’t it?
I can understand how the Right Wing mightt suffer angst about such a law if it had been passed by Democrats or Progressives. That would have made it into an entirely different matter altogether, wouldn’t it? But no, I think half – - (Maybe more than half) – - the Right Wing argument against what is going on between the Nevada rancher and the Fed in the dispute over allegedly illegal use of public lands can probably be explained by the fact that it is the Obama Administration trying to enforce the Reaganesque Law that was originally passed by The Right Wing themselves.
I guess we have gotten to the point now – - in the minds of some of the radical right wing extremists – - that if a “Law” is in force under the present administration then there is something “Unlawful” or “Lawless” about it and maybe it don’t really have to be enforced or obeyed – - is that the story that is emerging here? Does the contemporary Right Wing believe their can simply ignore or refuse to obey any law they don’t especially like? Is that what is shaping up in America?
Well folks . . the law is the law but I guess there are still some who wave their Bibles, their Gadsden Flags and their guns in the face of the “Lawless Federal Tyranny” – - a concocted mythology that I believe bubbles up from their own uninformed or myth-informed imaginations – - – and think they are in the right and everybody else is in the wrong.
You will not believe the lengths that I have read about that some of them have been reportedly willing to go to make their points about lawlessness and the law and Government and The Fed and their rights and all the rest of the static coming out of Radical Rightie-Land these days.

You know folks . . . if some people don’t like the laws of this “Tyrannical” government of ours – - – a label for government that I think is absolutely delusional and conspiracist and ignorant – - then they ought to be informed that they have the option to raise support and put their issues on ballots, hold elections and get the laws they don’t like changed. That is how Representative Government works in a Democratic Republic. A nation such as The United States does not resolve Her inner conflicts with force of arms. That is behavior more appropriate for undeveloped Third World nations or something . . . but not America where the ballot box is supposed to the arbiter of all such disputes as what is lawful and what is not.
