Banana republic or banana state is a political science term for politically unstable countries in Latin America whose economies are largely dependent on exporting a limited-resource product, e.g. bananas. It typically has stratified social classes, including a large, impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy of business, political, and military elites. This politico-economic oligarchy controls the primary-sector productions to exploit the country’s economy. In common parlance, a “banana republic” represents a legal system where the interpretation of the laws is more “flexible”. So for example, relatives and friends of el Presidente live by a separate standard than the common people.
I guess there is not much more to say. Friends of el Presidente live by a separate standard than the common people. People have been prosecuted for much more minor offenses than that of carelessly exposing classified materials to our enemies yet Hillary is not prosecuted because she lacked “intent”. Gross negligence was required, not intent..but:
Did she accidentally set up a private server?
Did she accidentally delete 1000s of emails and hide them?
Did she accidentally lie about not sending classified information?
If I were an attorney I would be appalled. The law now means nothing. It is only a tool that the more powerful can use to protect their enemies. Mr. Comey said as much. The kings and queens of government are now officially above law. They don’t need to follow it. Profit and power have replaced the law and it is not even hidden. Are there no attorneys left to stand for the principles that made this country great. The constitution means nothing and those that died to give us our freedoms and maintain them through the years had died in vain. It is a sad day for the United States of America.
