The United States is incredibly unique in that it does not have a domestic security service akin to Britain's MI5 -- something we would view as un-American.
Yet somehow under President Obama, our highest law enforcement and intelligence agencies were subverted to become weapons of political warfare.
As additional details of Obamagate unravel, a clear fact pattern has emerged. From Fast & Furious; to the IRS and its targeting of conservative groups; to the unmasking scandal; and the weaponizing of the Department of Justice and FBI to unlawfully spy on an American citizen, the Obama administration repeatedly abused its power.
Our intelligence agencies — the most powerful in the world — disregarded the constitutional protections afforded to Americans for nothing more than political expediency.
If we are not a nation governed by the rule of law, than we have nothing.
And the sacrifices and triumphs of 1776 were for naught.
