Under the Rule
of Law, there are no "Law Makers", and there isn't even supposed to be a "Government". The Rule
of Law is literal (the words do mean what they say), and everybody is supposed to be 'governed' by the Law - "If the Law makes the King, then the King is subject to the Law" (which is where British 'subject' comes from - it has nothing to do with being a forelock tugging serf).
The Rule of Law denies power, because nobody can be trusted with power, which is the whole point of the following:
"In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." Thomas Jefferson
This is why we have Legislatures (e.g. the Houses of Parliament in the UK, America's Congress, Senate, and Presidency), and representatives 'Legislate'.
Under the Rule of Law, all legislation must comply with the Law to be 'lawful'. otherwise it is illegal, and void. Nobody is allowed to make "Law", because making Law is the exercising of power, and nobody has any.
Part of this includes the fact that all legislation must be thoroughly debated in the Legislative Body, so that the INTENT of the legislators can be determined by the Courts. If there has been insufficient, or totally absent debate, that legislation is automatically illegal, and void (so no sneaking in legislation in the dead of night).
Otherwise you get the Courts "making it up as they go along" and "thinking that they make Law" which is part of the definition of a lawless State (which is the assumption of the proven lie and despotic tyranny of "Divine Right", where "The Law is what 'we' say it is").
As an aside, this is no different to the self proclaimed Satanist Aleister Crowley's "Do what thou wilt be the whole of the law", and equally disastrous.
In many ways, the approach taken by our employees (it is the Citizens that pay the wages), is placing those such as the Police in impossible situations, where they are compelled to enforce illegal and void legislation to carry out what are basically illegal tax raising measures, which destroys the respect the citizens have for the people they pay to attend full time, to the duties and responsibilities that are also those of every citizen (principles involved in the Hue and Cry for example), not helped by things such as illegal breaching of the Castle Doctrine with illegal entry onto property - which is illegal even with a warrant, believe it or not. A Policeman breaking down a door is an act of war, and he can be lawfully killed (there is plenty of case precedent). Recently in Britain, there was a Policeman dressed in camouflage gear
hiding in someone's garden, and he attacked the householder when challenged, and was killed. The householder was RIGHTLY found not guilty of murder in Court.
Under the Common Law, and as confirmed by the 1688 Bill of Rights (which was also granted to America circa 1700 AD, in gratitude for assistance given with the Glorious Revolution of 1688), it is illegal to inflict fines and forfeitures prior to conviction. On the spot fines, wheel
clamping etc., are BLATANTLY illegal, yet Policemen are sent out every day with quotas to fill, all for illegal revenue raising.
This will end up with the Police ultimately being unable to function, because the function of the Police depends 100% on the co-operation of their employers, and working with their employers.
has been introduced via Senior Officers that are required to know MUCH better, as a function of their jobs. Which is why the following is in Magna Carta (this is a very old problem, that never ends well):
"We will appoint as justices, constables, sheriffs, or bailiffs only such as know the law of the realm and mean to observe it well."
We approach interesting times, that as history all too clearly demonstrates, will involve massive amounts of payback, plus substantial interest, for those that have taken liberties with inalienable Rights, Liberties, and Freedoms.
Those employed by the Citizen, had better start minding their P's and Q's, start behaving responsibly and carrying out their duties (if they aren't already - you know who you are), yesterday if not sooner.
Because there is a very real "Or Else", that nobody is going to like experiencing.
All lawless States inevitably fail, that failure is usually catastrophic, and it is usually accompanied by great bloodshed (primarily of those that failed in their duties and supported the lawless State).
