If you feel like the wheels are coming off our nation, you are not alone. An increasing number of Americans see liberals flaunting the law and nobody willing to hold them accountable.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton was discovered to have violated numerous laws regarding use of unauthorized home-based personal email systems for government business, violations of security procedures for classified documents, unlawful transmission of classified information, failure to disclose massive donations to her "foundation" by foreigners and the physical destruction of hard drives, servers, cell phones and other hardware containing evidence under subpoena. Clinton admitted to deleting 33,000 subpoenaed emails from her personal server she used for her official duties, explaining they were her own personal emails that were nobody's business. A number of Clinton's emails were found on the personal laptop of convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner. Immediately before the 2016 presidential election James Comey, on behalf of the FBI cleared Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing by improperly adding the element of intent into the law and claiming her actions would not be prosecuted because she did not mean to break the law.. Never mind that federal prosecutors routinely charge and convict people for much less egregious violations of national security with no requirement for an element of intent. It appears Clinton will never face legal or administrative consequences for her outrageous behavior.
A later FBI report revealed that Comey decided months in advance that Clinton would be cleared, showing that her famous hours-long interview was simply to make it appear the agency was doing an actual investigation. In addition, other FBI personnel used the agency to attack Trump and help Hillary in the 2016 presidential election. It appears these abuses of power and illegal use of public agencies for personal political attacks will not be prosecuted.

Lois Lerner and others illegally weaponized the IRS to harass conservative groups. Not only will Lerner not face prosecution, but she seeks to keep her sworn testimony secret regarding what she did to the American people while an IRS official, arguing her testimony is so incriminating she fears for the safety of herself and her family.
During the 2016 Democratic primary, CNN's Donna Brazile, a Clinton confidant and Democratic operative with a history of dishonest behavior, provided the Clinton campaign with CNN's debate questions in advance to gain an unfair advantage. Hillary Clinton and Democrats never faced any sanction or questions from major media for cheating.
In Florida, just three weeks ago, Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes oversaw a disastrous election performance as her county failed to count ballots, miscounted ballots, mixed up illegal and proper ballots and was unable to account for thousands of ballots cast but not physically available for inspection. Ballots also were located in the trunk of a rental car at the Fort Lauderdale airport, as well as others allegedly found in a random teacher's classroom. Snipes has previously been in trouble for illegally destroying ballots, but still managed to maneuver herself into a position appearing to help Democratic candidates cheat in the 2018 midterm elections.
As the counting dragged on after Election Day – with an appearance that Snipes and her Democratic partners were attempting the old Chicago trick of feigning confusion until hard numbers were returned by every other county before magically producing just enough votes to give the Democrat the victory in a statewide election – many publicly asked how Snipes could possibly be in charge of ballots considering her history? When it became clear there would not be enough newly discovered ballots in Broward County to swing the election away from Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis, Snipes ended the process and resigned her position. She suggested to reporters that frustration with her performance was due to racism. It appears she will not be held accountable for the latest election irregularities on her watch.

Antifa protesters around America have physically attacked people attending speeches, rallies or other public events. They block highways, smash, burn and loot public and private property. They went on a violent rampage on inauguration day, causing their signature mayhem and intimidation. Arrests are rare, and prosecutions scarcer still. Even when an occasional leftist rioter is arrested and prosecuted, they receive little more than a wrist-slap.
Illegal aliens freely enter our country, unlawfully work, use others' identity documents, commit all types of criminal offenses and re-enter the U.S. after being deported. Not only does the federal government seem unable to stop the tidal wave of illegal immigration, but some communities actively defy the government by encouraging illegal immigration and actively providing protection from federal authorities. The so-called migrant caravan is an example of the contempt for our laws and demonstration of the impotence of the government to enforce laws with which liberals disagree.
Liberals forum-shop lawsuits into friendly federal courts to get various judges to take turns ordering the Trump administration to stop conservative policies, or continue Obama-era policies as leftists demand. Even as these matters are eventually decided in favor of the administration, the never-ending harassment and public expense of defending lawsuit after lawsuit by assorted liberal organizations shows the effectiveness of liberals' abuse of government. And this, incidentally, demonstrates Democrats' shocking behavior during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Federal courts are the ultimate "trump card" for liberals, as federal court rulings are how they have achieved all but a handful of their culture-transforming initiatives over the past several decades.
All this is to say nothing of the lack of prosecutions for federal law enforcement's use of fake evidence to get the secret FISA court to issue a warrant to use national security assets to wiretap a presidential candidate and hack the servers at Trump Tower during and after the 2016 election.
It appears to many Americans the law does not apply to those on the left – from Hillary Clinton to the lowest antifa rioter and every liberal in between. Until liberals who break our laws are arrested and prosecuted for doing so, the collapse of our Republic will accelerate.
