I say hmmm. At the "laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence)  law enforcement is an oxymoron. Can a corporeal individual enforce physics / science, gravity, math, life or liberty? NO ! ! !  Man can only enforce tyranny.  SO, under normal circumstances, it is difficult to implement unconstitutional despotic dystopia. It is a lot easier to wait for, or cause a chaotic crisis so that malefactors can do the things they thought they could not do before. Again, I say hmmm.

His thoughts should be used against him as a means of preventing him or his ilk from achieving public office, as he has no use for the oath he took or the rule of law that is to govern him.

A concrete example would be pleasant to understand this quote. What developmental formulations did the mayor achieve with this formula? What was the crises and what was the outcome in the mayor's opportune positioning.
