Are We a Nation of Laws #1?

Thomas Sowell is questioning our Governments actions - rightfully so in my opinion!

"[O]ur government is supposed to be 'a government of laws and not of men.' If our laws and our institutions determine that BP ought to pay $20 billion -- or $50 billion or $100 billion -- then so be it. But the Constitution says that private property is not to be confiscated by the government without 'due process of law.' Technically, it has not been confiscated by Barack Obama, but that is a distinction without a difference. With vastly expanded powers of government available at the discretion of politicians and bureaucrats, private individuals and organizations can be forced into accepting the imposition of powers that were never granted to the government by the Constitution. If you believe that the end justifies the means, then you don't believe in constitutional government." --economist Thomas Sowell
