Money quote from Vox Day

Vox Popoli: Sovereign immunity:
So fewer than three percent of federal indictments against federal, state and local government employees ever make it to trial... the very term 'sovereign immunity' betrays the way that these so called public servants think of themselves. The 'sovereign' cannot commit a crime against himself, therefore any government official breaking the law in performance of his duties cannot be found guilty of a crime.

I've repeatedly written that America, the idea made reality, is no more. The United States is no longer the most free nation in the world; its wealth and apparent freedom are the lingering, but fading blessings that remain from a place that is now gone.
Ruminate on that for a while!
