I didn't figure this would go over well.

The rule of law is simple. It's similar to the idea of binding arbitration. When there is a conflict between the rights of 2 opposing parties, a third unbiased party decides whose rights prevail.

The rule of law says that we accept that idea, whether we are on the winning or losing side of the argument.

All the nonsense comments above are just that... nonsense.

An analogy is like the call of the umpire at the plate. Imagine a baseball game with no umpires or players who didn't follow the judgment of the umpire.

Without the rule of law there is total lawlessness. Chaos. Anarchy.
