JTK over at No Treason duly bitch-slaps Libertarian turned Republican Congressman Ron Paul.
You bandy about the words “illegal” and “lawbreaker” as if they had moral content. They don’t.
Weren’t Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and all the founding fathers lawbreakers? Wasn’t Thoreau? Or Martin Luther King?
Wasn’t the Declaration of Independence itself an act of lawbreaking?
Men have no moral obligation whatsoever to obey or even recognize
immoral laws, including many immoral laws that you are party to. Stop
using law as a proxy for morality in your arguments. There is no
necessary relationship between the two.
