The founders feared rule by the mob even more than an abusive monarchy. They would be surprised to find that America now embodies the worst elements of both: The federals fancy themselves as royalty, but act like mobsters.
When pressed, the anointed federal mob bosses snippily defend their multi-trillion-dollar racket only as "legal," carefully avoiding the phrase "legal and constitutional." Lawyers that they are, they know that legal and constitutional are terms miles apart these days. For a second opinion, just ask We the Wiretapped, aka We the People.
