We No Longer Remain Silent
It seems the calls that Speaker Hastert overreacted to the FBI search of William Jefferson's office have been getting louder. Previously on this blog, I had posted about how the federal government appears to be grabbing power in a manner unprecedented for this nation. I didn't pay much attention to what Hastert said at first, other than to note he had played right into the scenario set forth in the Royal Congress posting. Captain's Quarters takes a more in-depth approach to the issue at hand. Hopefully, as the issue of Congress feeling it is above the law becomes more prominent, more can be done to ultimately resolve it. When Newt Gingrich swept a Republican majority into office in 1994, his Contract With America promised:
“all laws that apply to the rest of the country” will “also apply equally to the Congress.”
Maybe that's why they ran him out of town.
