As I have once again started reading news and blogs about the US political system and international struggles I came across this verse. It sums up what I think about it all succinctly.
New International Version (NIV)
10 Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees,
2 to deprive the poor of their rights
and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
making widows their prey
and robbing the fatherless.
