I am no longer bound

This morning, on my way to work, I realized that I no longer have to follow any of the laws of the nation of the United States of America. I am free to do anything I want to! Isn't that fantastic?!

Let me explain my reasoning and you tell me if it sounds correct.

To begin with, the definition of a law is this:

A rule of conduct or procedure established by custom, agreement, or authority.
1. The body of rules and principles governing the affairs of a community and enforced by a political authority; a legal system: international law.
2. The condition of social order and justice created by adherence to such a system

Granted there are about 20 more dealing with legislation and the like but for my purposes, this part will do.

Ok, so, let's begin with the first bit that has the two sub points. Basically, the belief in America is that the law is firm in what it does and does not allow and there are penalties around the violation of such things.

For instance, if you write a bad check, you can go to jail, get fined and/or have to go to a money managemet class. I, in fact, did write one for $10 dollars and had to do the class and get fined. Fair enough, it was a mistake and you deal with the consequences.

Now, for the counter point that bolsters my case of not having to obey any law anymore:

Point 1 - Tom Delay and the fiasco in Texas. Apparently, laws are in fact meant to be broken since you can do dirty financial transactions and have the rules of the governing body changed so you can keep your job and stay out of trouble.

Point 2 - The Valerie Plane Incedent - Implicated in the cover-up for the Presidents advisor, Carl Rove, is rumored to be the one and only not get in trouble for anything he's done, Vice President Chaney. Quoting one of his Republican counterparts: "...I certainly hope that if there is going to be an indictment that says something happened, that it is an indictment on a crime and not some perjury technicality where they couldn't indict on the crime and so they go to something just to show that their two years of investigation was not a waste of time and taxpayer dollars. So they go to something that trips someone up because they said something in the first grand jury and then maybe they found new information or they forgot something and they tried to correct that in a second grand jury.

Ok, so what your saying is that I can lie in court and that's not bad. Right. We're getting somewhere now. But that's still not enought to say, throw out the baby with the bath water, right?

Point 3 - The-war-that-is-about-something-that-it-wasn't-about-so-it-was-made up-so-we-could-go-to-war-for-some-reason-or-other
Apparently, there are no super-bad weapons, no attempts to get radioactive materials (granted there are a lot of pipes that could be used to possibly make bombs... or they could jst be pipes), no link to bad guys with planes and Osama... in fact, about the only thing there was was a nasty looking guy hiding in a hole. Granted, we all want to look at beautiful people but...

I take from this that I can make up what ever excuse I want and just tromp on it and destroy and kill and take what I like becuase in the end, I can walk away and say it was for some vague good and even though everybody hates my guts where I just did all the damage, they really love me, they just don't realize it.

Oh, and add to that, that I can get away with all this after getting my predecessor practically fired and totally embarassed for getting a blow job. And covering it up.

Yeah, I'm getting the feeling that I got ripped off for my $10 bounced check and frankly, if the moral leaders of my country can lie, cheat and steal and send people to die and kill and pose with nude captors and on and on, then fuck it, I'm headed to the local electronics store and getting me one of those 62 inch plasma televisions. If they try to stop me, I'll refer them to congress.

I know I'm dead on the surface But I'm screaming underneath
