Go Sign

...Representative Louise Slaughter's petition for hearings on NSA spying. Tom DeLay says so.

[T]his nation sits at a crossroads. One direction points to the higher road of the rule of law. Sometimes hard, sometimes unpleasant, this path relies on truth, justice and the rigorous application of the principle that no man is above the law. Now, the other road is the path of least resistance. This is where we start making exceptions to our laws based on poll numbers and spin control. This is when we pitch the law completely overboard when the mood fits us, when we ignore the facts in order to cover up the truth. ...

No man is above the law, and no man is below the law. That's the principle that we all hold very dear in this country.

Tom DeLay, 1998. A different time, a different party, a different president.
