Mark Steyn: ‘For me, the issue this US election season is the corruption’

As Cindy Archer and others understood, when the nightmare suddenly descends, you have to be super-alert not to put a foot wrong, even by an inch or two. She was worried they were going to shoot her barking dogs. Which the police certainly do. But, maybe if your poor dog tries to protect you and you rush to grab his collar, the sudden move will result in them shooting you — and then trotting back to the vehicle to find a taser to plant beside your body.
What I mean is, when Mr Mauser says “it’s hard to know how you would react”, you have to react as you would if you were raided by the Egyptian police or the Turkmen police, and figure out a way to increase your odds of surviving the encounter. But, on his general point, I’m in agreement: Americans need to recover the habits of liberty, and refuse to accept the “justice” of squalid hacks like “Judge” Kulka. And they need also to understand that there is a direct line between the contempt for law demonstrated by the super-elite in Washington and the terrifying caprices of Wisconsin “justice”.
Like I said, I want a candidate who’ll restore government integrity and equality before the law. These days I can’t sit through that “I’m proud to be an American ’cause at least I know I’m free” song. I’d like fewer people to sing it and more people to live it.
