Matt Gaetz Accidentally Reminds People He’s a Loser Who Allegedly Has to Pay Women for Sex

The rule of law is a social contract. When the government refuses to maintain their end, deliberately allowing "special" people to get away with heinous things no one else would, then respect for police, judges, and other institutions appropriately fails, and regular individuals committing crime for one's personal advancement becomes a standard that those institutions lack the scope to address.

An example of a country that destroyed its rule of law is Mexico. We're closer today to becoming Mexico than we are to going back to the USA circa 1999, and the hands-off treatment of Gaetz (and many other Republican felons) is a giant acceleration to that end.
