The word "law"


According to Wikipedia, a "law" is a system of rules, Merriam-Webster says, among other definitions for this word, a "law" is a system that is advisable to follow. 
The word "law" may have more relevance since the 2020 election, when a President was elected with a slim majority in Congress and a 50 50 Senate requiring a tie vote to be broken by the current administration's Vice President.

The relevance of the word "law" is important in many ways.

The current administration can't pass a "law" unless all the members of the political party who won the Presidency votes for it.  This hasn't been the case insofar as the Senate.  Some members of the current President's political party are marching to their own drummer.  So far just one "law," a bipartisan effort, has been enacted. 
Is that a good thing? 
Depends on which political party's House Speaker you ask.  Insofar as the Senate, it depends upon which Majority or Minority leader of the Senate you ask. 
Without a "law" there is no action on a political agenda. 
Yet competing influential to public opinion influences can demand that a "law" be enacted, too. 
Is this a common occurrence? 
The Encyclopedia Britannica has completed a thorough examination about public opinion and the enactment of a government agenda—Britannica has determined that for the most part, public opinion can only influence the limits of government agenda, which is necessarily dependent on enacting a "law."
Here's another fact. 
In this 21st century the use of an "Executive Order" can be as impactful as a "law," even a substitute for a "law" if the Supreme Court determines it is a law. 
However, the Supreme court can changed to accommodate some Congressional members of the political party of this administration.  Expanding the court to 13 instead of nine would allow the Administration to have an easier time when it comes to determining whether an Executive Order can become a "law."

 One aspect of examining the word "law" is to understand the impact a law can have on your life.

Especially for those voters who don't bother to go beyond the headlines, it is important to understand how a "law" enacted by a majority of the House of representatives and the Senate can determine the fate of a nation. 
The fate of voters in a state is also determined by the majority of your State's House and Senate. 
It's up to each voter to ponder carefully as to who they elect to the House of Representatives and the Senate whether it be Federal or State—the House and the Senate enact a "law." 
Keep in mind, a "law" is proposed by a member of the House and the Senate and enacted by a majority of all the members, but a President or a Governor can only sign the "law.

Does the word "rule" usually in the plural rule in success?


The noun, "rule" is an important word in any endeavor you attempt.

As you know if you read this blog on an irregular basis, I ask questions in the search engine slot, my search engine uses Google.

There are always "rules" to do whatever you attempt successfully, in obtaining a license in real estate, or politics, the rules matter, winning or losing to the rule makers, but who gets to make the rules? 
I attempted to find out using my search engine, and the results were mostly the same insofar as there were no "opposite" viewpoints, because the "process of rule making" is for the rule makers who are in the "power structure" of the entity, organization, or political party, they decide if you succeed, and you have play by their rules. 
Taking to the courts is time consuming, and winning depends on the certain ways of following the rules, and insofar as success, succeeding depends on how you do that too. 

If you want to be a hairdresser your state, there are tests, the "rule" is an equivalent to the tests to determine your competence and usually passing the tests allows you to have a license.  If you want to drive, you need to get a license. 

Knowing the "rule" successfully achieves your goal.  

If you are running for office and want to win, you need to find out what the political party in charge does to win.  If you know they win by doing certain things, those "certain things" are the "rules."  
Some say winning in politics is the ultimate success, there is nothing written out, it's up to the party that lost to figure out how to do the same thing as the party that won.  For instance, winning isn't only based on running a certain kind of campaign.  You need to figure out what they did to win, but within the scope of the party in power's defining "legality."  And keep in mind, nothing is illegal if you work within the legalities that the party in power uses to win, the legalities are based on that pesky word "rule" often in the plural, too. 
Summing up, winning means succeeding by knowing the "rule."
Sometimes thinking "out of the box" of the "rule" can mean success, but if you don't know the "rule" for success at whatever you want to do, then don't expect to be a success.
