#1 For a government that has already transcended the law what difference does it make to pass new law or even Constitutional (we'll interpret that) amendments? While they're wrecking the pillars of legitimacy of the government because most people just want to move along in their day to day existence, there is no comprehension by the vandals of what may happen that day in the future when it starts to implode as and things don't happen. No one will be there to defend their power. Why die for such a corrupt illegitimate group of power wonks and thieves. You can stuff the ballot box with all sorts of contrivances, 20th Century dictator mastered that game, however, it's the willingness to give that 'last full measure of devotion' that keeps any system in existence.

#2 And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat?

This current, corrupt cabal is incapable of looking farther ahead than their next bribe or power grab. See also "Anarcho-tyranny".

#6 Except in cases of real national security... There are some deliberations which should be done behind closed doors.
Or else we can simply ask the Chinese to "cover your ears!". Isn't there another story where they asked them "Please don't hack our computers to get our defense plans."?
