Anytime you play a game, all teams have to play by the rules, or they could get penalized or even disqualified. We all understand this simple process, and that if one side is cheating, it’s not a fair game.
Benjamin Franklin even wrote an essay on this topic, The Morals of Chess, and he emphasized this point.
“If it is agreed to play according the strict rules, then those rules are to be exactly observed by both parties; and should not be insisted on for one side, while deviated from by the other; for this is not equitable.”
When it comes to the federal government, the Constitution is the rulebook. But the government stopped playing by the rules a long time ago.
So, what do we do about it? Enforce the rules whether the government wants us to or not!
Standing around screaming about how unfair it is won’t change anything. We’ve got to nullify every government action that breaks the rules by refusing to cooperate with it.
