What goes around ...
We have all heard the sayings “What you sow, you will reap” and “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” These phrases underscore the law of reciprocity. What goes around comes around.
Faith in the law of reciprocity has prevented human conflict between individuals and nations, and it has constrained the self-destructive tendencies of many powerful people. Yet, some people refuse to accept this.
Never before have we had a president who is a sneak, a snoop and a schemer of government power to destroy his opposition. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party leadership runs interference in the lawful investigation of this national malfeasance.
President Obama and the Democrats are waging war against our rights to free speech, religion, assembly, gun ownership, home privacy, property and state sovereignty while they hope to fundamentally change the most successful form of government the world has ever seen.
It's hard to imagine that Obama and the Democrats really believe that they can outrun the consequences of their devious conduct. I dare say not.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
