Our meddling in other States’ affairs is wrong.

Ignoring the law is wrong.

Once you go over it, your fear of heights doesn’t really matter anymore.

Republicans AND Democrats are concerned with one thing only...having their way. There is no rule of law. Stop pretending there is and feigning indignation at the actions of the other side. I have.
