When I was growing up it was against the law for a soldier to desert in the face of the enemy.
In the face of the enemy, soldiers have been shot in firing squads or, hung.
When I was growing up it was against the law to give away government secrets to foreign countries.(unsecured e-mails).
When I was growing up it was against the law to buy and, control one political party and, use the FBI to spy on the the other political party.(Watergate).
It was also against the law to sell our uranium assets to our enemies. (Uranium 1 deal).
But, lets worry about who has access to guns, who is talking to the Russians or, who is avoiding paying taxes.
You wonder where our moral standards are going.
