Crime is Only Legal If You’re a Politician

There is no “rule of law” in America anymore. There is only RULE.  We go to jail for what is PERFECTLY LEGAL for congress and the president to do.  WHY is it “legal” for them to do what we are forbidden to do?  BECAUSE THEY MAKE THE RULES, AND ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO NO ONE.  It’s not just democrats or republicans.  It’s ALL of them.

Look at all the politicians who went to Washington as financial nobodies, but who are now worth millions and millions of dollars.  Harry Reid, John Boehner, and Nancy Pelosi come immediately to mind.  Are you going to try to tell me they got that rich that fast on their congressional salary alone?  If so, you’re a special kind of stupid.  They have made it perfectly legal for themselves to do “insider trading.”  They buy and sell stocks based completely on the knowledge of laws that they themselves write, knowing how it will help or harm an industry or company.  Remember Martha Stewart?  She WENT TO JAIL for trading some stocks because she had word of what was going to happen to it.

Do you think perhaps we should let Martha Stewart lead the pitchfork brigade that storms Washington DC to burn it down?

But if anything, it’s more of a surprise that Congress passed the law with such a wide margin in the first place given its ubiquity in Washington.

In an investigation a year and half ago, 60 Minutes uncovered evidence of several instances of insider trading among prominent government officials. The trades, while technically legal can hardly be considered ethical. One of these trades involved Alabama Representative Spencer Bachus, then the ranking Republican member on the House Financial Services Committee back in September 2008. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke were holding closed door briefings with congressional leaders, and privately warning them that a global financial meltdown could occur within a few days.
