If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any power. Cuba would be a free democratic country, and the Keystone XL pipeline would not be considered.
The problem is our laws are convoluted at best. There are too many loopholes that let those in power or rich enough to evade the law. When one law is passed they neglect to erase the previous law. A slick “lawyer” (pronounsed liar) can find a loophole for the rich benefactor he/she represents.
How can we fix this problem? It will never happen, but I think the way to do it is to wipe the laws off the books and start fresh. You could also make the laws with clean Bills. No tampering with amendments! Each law should be clear and unambigous. In fact all Bills should be clean. There should not be exceptions or add ons to a Bill. Each law they create should be stand alone. They could pass a new law then disgard the old outdated law. Each time a new law is passed they should disgard old laws that preexisted.
Amendments that change the Bill are fine but to slip something in as an amendment that is unrelated to the Bill is WRONG , in my opinion. I call them add ons. That would stop if the Congress would only have clean Bills to vote on. Congress has been playing games with Bills for years.
If Congress did as I suggest the Courts would not have to wade through all the old laws that are still on the books. There is too much power given to the Supreme Court.
What do you think about “justice”? Do you think we should remove old laws that are on the books? Should the Congress allow amendments to Bills that have nothing to do with the subject? What do you think? Lets have a conversation.
