Yesterday, I had the chance to watch the judgement in Amanda Knox appeal live. I laughed inside at the justice system of Italy and how messed up it is. Specifically how a judge sits in on the deliberation of the jury. Barack Obama is making a mockery of the United States justice system before our very eyes.

Last week when Anwar Al Awlaki was killed I, like most everyone else, at first thought good he’s gone. When I watched President Obama’s address giving the announcement of the killing of Awlaki I heard cheering. While it is good he is gone, should we ever cheer for the death of someone? Awlaki was, after all, an American citizen; a terrible human being but an American.

The American constitution gives us rights to “Due Process”. Alwaki was not given that right when Obama decided to kill him without bringing him to trial. This is a direct quote from wikipedia on “Due Process”, “When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law it constitutes a due process violation which offends against the rule of law.” Rule of law is this, “The rule of law is a legal maxim stating that no person is above the law, that no one can be punished by the state except for a breach of the law, and that no one can be convicted of breaching the law except in the manner set forth by the law itself. The rule of law stands in contrast to the idea that the leader is above the law, a feature of Roman law, Nazi law, and certain other legal systems.”

I don’t know about you, but I live in a Representative Republic and not a Dictatorship.
