Rules: 'We make 'em up as we go along'

The ObamaCare push is causing Democrats to unmask themselves and display the ugliness of their power grab. Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings (who was impeached and removed from office as a federal judge, and subsequently nominated and elected as a Democrat Member of Congress) thoughtfully articulated the strategy being used: make up whatever rules you wish.

Bruce Walker notes today that process (in other word, the rule of law, with predictable rules) is an essential component of liberty. America today is moving one giant step closer to tyranny, the sort of state where the regime nakedly makes up whatever rules it needs in order to accomplish its goals.
