Restoring the Rule of Law or Complacency to Apathy to Bondage – Mr. Holder’s Choice

Mr. Holder,

Every time the executive branch of our federal government erodes the rule of law, our nation takes one more step toward its end. To delay that end, there must be a thorough and complete investigation of any laws that were broken. There should be a restoration of those broken laws and those responsible should be prosecuted for their illegal actions.

This investigation should be done by Congress, or the Department of Justice, or both working together to restore the rule of law.

In particular, we, as a country, cannot ask others to respect human rights when we are violating the rights of both our citizens and those we accuse of perpetrating crimes against our nation.

Please appoint an independent prosector to help restore the rule of law with respect to any violation of human right through the use of torture and prosecute those rankng individuals that are responsible for the violations.

Here is a quote from the movie “Swing Vote:”

Nations have followed the same historical path:
From bondage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy, back to bondage.

We, as a nation, are somewhere between complacency and apathy. If, as the Attorney General, you don’t act, we move closer to apathy.

We need moral clarity and prosecuting violations of human rights through the use of torture is a good place to start.
