According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, Relativism is “The belief that different things are true, right, etc., for different people or at different times.” Another tenant of Relativism is the shifting meaning of words, in other words, words no longer hold meaning constant, they can mean one thing one day and another the next in the same context or statement. In such a world, not only is everything relative it is also meaningless, but when this standard is applied to the law, then the law also becomes lawless.
As Congress gears up for another fight over funding the government, the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare, once again takes center stage. In the funding process, only the House of Representatives is authorized to originate bills raising revenue for the government and the House has approved a bill that would fund the general operations of the government, but not ObamaCare. For this bill to become law, the Senate must also pass it and the President must sign what was passed by both houses of Congress. So if the government were to experience another shut down whose fault is it?
