As a young boy, then a young adult, before coming to the United States, there was an idea that was America.
A country that respected the rule of law, no matter who you were, and promised that everyone was equal and could be treated fairly. The rule of law in America is what separated her from other countries – even progressive countries. It was leadership. It was exceptionalism and it was something to look up to.
The rule of law in America is under assault for the sake of politics. People who’ve taken it for granted for so long will miss it when it is gone.
