It's only Treason if The Attorney General and Supreme Court are not bought or in favor of corporate tyranny propped up as a modern industrial Republic. In other words, unless those in empowered positions are willing to hold Power to account, no muscle is in place to enforce law.
One could apply this same question to why it is that the same banks that pushed to negate Glass-Steagall (although its necessity goes back to The Great Depression, i.e. there is precedent for this law being upheld) and essentially imploded the Honest Economy got bailed out with only a token "bad apple" sent to jail. Taxpayers were FORCED to pick up the tab.
Similarly, the corporate media went to work manufacturing false cases for war against Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Yemen and potentially other lands and the evidence used has been exposed for its fraud. Again, no one is held to account.
Torture practices went up and down the political "food" chain with no one but a token low level operator held to account.
THIS is the way things are now done and it's reminiscent of two things: 1. How organized crime operates 2. How Totalitarian States operate.
In neither model do those doing the murders typically account for their actions. However, in the long (life to life as continuum) run, the law of karma WILL hold them to account. Our system has been compromised and co-opted by Deep State coup-style operators. They keep the illusion of Democracy in place when not using prolifically disseminated anti-depressant drugs along with a hypnotic media to keep the masses quiescent.
Of course, if the masses do act up, all those weapons sent home from foreign wars will be useful in retaining "order." Just ask the Black community how all that "justice" works.
