Disregard for the Law Is America's Greatest Threat

Barbarians at the gate usually don't bring down once-successful civilizations. Nor does climate change. Even mass epidemics like the plague that decimated sixth-century Byzantium do not necessarily destroy a culture. Far more dangerous are institutionalized corruption, a lack of transparency and creeping neglect of existing laws.
The frightening thing about disgraced IRS bureaucrat Lois Lerner's knowledge of selective audits of groups on the basis of their politics is not just that she seemed to ignore it, but that she seemingly assumed no one would find out, or perhaps even mind. And she may well have been right.

Disregard for the law will not just be by the crooks of our society any longer but now by those who believe in God and virtue because our laws are becoming the law of tyranny & those who espouse it!

When tyranny is law
Rebellion is duty!

Plenty of ordinary people care that Lerner and the IRS broke the law.

However, the people for prosecuting and tossing in jail the Lerner's of government don't care.

The article is rather tiresome, because it assumes the rule of law still exists.
