It seems quite evident that after 231 years a large segment of American citizens, people comprising that grand group of citizens over 18 years of age permitted to vote in State and federal elections (the electorate), are having a very difficult time contrasting and understanding the profound difference between being civilly and lawfully disobedient, as Henry David Thoreau wrote in his famous essay and spent a night in jail after refusing to pay a poll tax to illustrate the principle of an unjust law, and overtly and illegally resisting police arrest. There is a distinct and notable difference between the two that urgently needs to be explicated since, as the venerable John Adams so meaningfully stated, ‘… We the( American republic) are a nation of laws, and not of men,’ and those laws either deserve being obeyed without question, or properly changed in the fashion intended by the Framers of the American Constitution.
