Whatever happened to our God-given, inalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”? How can our wonderful members of Congress create one set of laws for themselves and another for the rest of us? Apparently, because we accept it.

When our dear, benevolent President Obama can modify our laws with a pen to suit his political needs, and he is not impeached, you know that both political parties are part of the problem.

Man’s rights are God-given. They do not exist at the whims of those egotistical, bought-and-paid-for politicians who are trying to play God.
