A nation of laws or a nation of men?

We are a nation of laws unless you are MAGA men. Then the laws are obsolete and meaningless if they run counter to the wishes of the Cult Leader.

Most Americans believe that the laws that apply to you and I should apply to all Americans. But, that is not the way the MAGA Cult believes.

For example, if we engaged in the attack upon our Capitol with the intent of stopping the function of government and attempted to stop Donald Trump from becoming the next president, they would demand that we all be held accountable according to the 14th Amendment Section 3 of the Constitution.

If Joe Biden had done the same actions, and non-actions, of Trump, they would be singing an entirely different song. Joe Biden would be disqualified from ever running for office again and, most likely, would be in jail.

Are we a nation of laws or a nation of men? It depends on whether or not you are a member of the Cult. They believe themselves exempt from the laws and the Constitution.
