I Wonder...

At what point in the history of this country did people begin to believe that the definition of "the rule of law" was "the will of the people"? Laws are created by legislation and by voting. "Laws" are not just whatever the "will of the people" may be at the moment.

Keep in mind there was a time when lynching was the "will of the people" (some people). Luckily, that never made it legal.
