     AN AMERICA WITH TWO LEGAL STANDARDS 
    IS AN AMERICA WITH NO LEGAL STANDARDS

              September 15, 1998

Mr. Speaker, if Joe Q. Citizen lied in a civil trial, 
he would be sued for every penny. If Joe Q. Citizen lied 
to a Grand Jury, he would go to jail. Lying is perjury. 
Perjury is a crime.

Now, having said that, what is going on here, Mr. Speaker? 
Does America now have two legal standards, one for you, 
one for  me; one for he, one for she; one for generals, 
one for soldiers; one for Presidents, one for residents?

Let us tell it like it is. Joe Q. Citizen cannot apologize, 
Joe Q. Citizen is not censured, Joe Q. Citizen is prosecuted. 
And let me warn Congress: An America with two legal standards 
is an America with no legal standards.

Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of the lives of all of the
soldiers that gave their lives fighting to preserve our freedom.
