As we know, our “woke” politicians and their Marxist/anarchist collaborators are working hard to defund, even eliminate, our police forces. It would be ludicrous if it weren’t so sad – actually, it’s both. As the Preamble to the Constitution states, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Tranquility, provide for the common defence (sic), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Plainly, the Preamble validates the need for not only law, but order, for society to function. As Madison said, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.” But we’re NOT angels; we’re imperfect humans – and no amount of Marxist/Socialist ideology can ever change that. We need restraints: self-imposed, yes, but restraints, nonetheless – including on government. We accomplish this through a system of carefully designed and judiciously administered fair and just laws, and fair and just enforcement/administration of those laws. The anarchists and their political allies know this, and are desperately trying to destroy the thin blue line that protects us from their tyranny.
