Once upon a time…

…back in merry old England, the man and the office were nearly one and the same.  The King was a personal sovereign.  The legal definition of sovereignty is “absolute power” in some sense.

When the United States achieved their independence, the personal sovereignty of the British Crown fell upon the individual people of the thirteen States.  They determined to create a nation where all are equal under law, by making their constitution the supreme law of the land and the repository for their sovereignty.

Personified law became a thing of the past, and written law became king.

Today some would refashion America into a nation of men, not of laws.

So if you don’t like it, just don’t take it personally.  And if you’re from the United States, then you don’t have to take it at all.
