The Law Is The Law And Money Talks

We elect individuals to represent us in our government. They can be any gender, race, religion, political party, or other demographic subdivision.  They can support or undermine what we as individual citizens believe are the necessary changes to improve and/or maintain the stability in our country and, by extension, our rights as American citizens.
