Double standard

How have we the United States of America become such a regulation nation? Why is it that “We the People” cannot make our own decisions? Let me explain, if you will.

When Barack Obama ran for the presidency, he promised a lot for the citizens of this nation. However, he soon learned this was not how he wanted to rule. He was and still is ruling his way. Whether he makes a good or bad decision, it is to be followed 100 percent. Moreover, Congress goes along with it instead of trying to put an end to his dictatorship.

Congress’ jobs from Wikipedia, the Constitution grants each chamber some unique powers. The Senate ratifies treaties and approves presidential appointments while the House initiates revenue-raising bills. The House initiates impeachment cases, while the Senate decides impeachment cases. A two-thirds vote of the Senate is required before an impeached person can be forcibly removed from office. Congress needs to be accountable for not following the Constitution or doing the will of the people!

Of course, whenever the citizens squawk about how the president or Congress is doing and the unnecessary regulations, President Obama and Congress go into excuse mode, using racism. Some of the media agree with their accusations of racism, too.

However, when an African-American speaks the same way towards white Americans, it isn’t racism and goes unchallenged. At least Congress or the national media never stand up against it nor voice their anger over such atrocities. The same goes with the young blacks who beat up and/or kill, (a male veteran in his 80s), white people of any nationality. The president, Congress, and many well-known African- Americans never condemn this. Does this sound like double standards to you?

What I am trying to explain is that “We The People” need to stop bellyaching; all citizens need to stand up against the wrongs done by our governments and to each other.

How? We need to vote, rally, tell our representatives enough is enough and see that our laws are followed. As for Congress and the president, (future President, too), they must follow the Constitution and treat every citizen equally or you are fired!
