Importance of the Rule of Law to Free Enterprise

The United States Constitution provided us with a governmental model designed to prevent tyrannical power in either the hands of a despot or the hands of an unchecked mob. The rule of law would be supreme in America guaranteeing everyone the right to life, liberty, and property. That model has unleashed the greatest economy the world has ever known.

Unfortunately, calls to defund the police along with the accompanying riots threaten to replace the rule of law with the tyranny of mob rule. The result has been billions of dollars in private property damage, businesses destroyed, and the lives of those who built them shattered. Strong, accountable policing and a constitutionally mandated legal system is imperative for the future of free enterprise.
