A nice, though frightening, insight into the mind of the left.
From a NYTimes editorial:
But many of Mr. DeLay’s actions remain legal only because lawmakers have chosen not to criminalize them.
Out of context? You be the judge....
In the period 1936 through 1938, the Roosevelt admin consciously targeted enforcement action on a variety of wealthy opponents, for taking tax deductions that were ENTIRELY LEGAL. Because the administration felt these measures were taken to reduce the amount of taxes owed. And some of these same loopholes were taken by Pres. Roosevelt himself. But in his case it was okay.
In other words, forget the law. We'll decide what's right, thanks very much. And we'll let you know, when armed thugs break your doors down and take your property.
I have no brief for Tom Delay. But I'm not sure you can accuse him of breaking laws that don't exist.
