Yes, the system is rigged

Kurt Schlichter lays it out, and does it well.  He also points out that when the game is rigged, we have no obligation to honor the system that's rigged against us.

The system is manifestly rigged – even Heap Big Chief Warren used to say so until a memo informed her that this meme is now inconvenient – so spare me your sanctimonious crap about our sacred system. Our loyalty is properly only to the Constitution, not a perversion of it. Just because you hold office under Article I, II, or III doesn’t mean we still owe you respect or deference when you treat your obligations to the People like a teenage Thai boy at one of Raymond Burr’s Halloween parties. 

We owe the system nothing. Nada. Zip. Instead, the system owes usfairness and honesty, and without them it has no right to our default acceptance of its results. That acceptance must be earned. This means that the system must aggressively police its own integrity, and this year it has utterly failed to do so.

And that's about the most succinct assessment I've heard in a while.  How many times have I pointed out that the law is the replacement for violence, and if the law no longer functions, or if the law itself is used against the law-abiding, we have the right to return to the violence we gave up?

I only give up my right of retribution if the law appropriately punishes the criminals.  This is no longer the case, as proven by the fact that Hillary Clinton would be in jail if it weren't for her political connections.

Is this dangerous talk? Hell yes – but the danger doesn’t come from us pointing out the corruption. The danger is the corruption. I walked through wrecked villages in the aftermath of a civil war, so I sure as hell don’t need your lessons about what lies at the bottom of the slippery slope your ruling class is tobogganing down. I know – and as my new book predicts, it’s really bad. But the solution isn’t to try to shut us up when we dare point out the truth – nor will it work. As the hep kids say, we are now hella woke. The solution is to demand the system do its damn job and root out corruption and earn back the default acceptance we would love nothing more than to be able to offer again, confident that the system is unrigged. Too bad if our refusal to simply acquiesce to your scam is inconvenient.

The establishment wants to rule us.  The Democrat voters want to be ruled.  We conservatives refuse to be ruled.  And we have most the guns.
