Letter: Play by the Constitution

This is how our democracy works. We have elections. A president gets to bring his ideas to the country that elected him for those ideas. Congress passes laws. The president can sign or veto the law. The Supreme Court decides if those laws are constitutional. Now those who preach Constitution, Constitution, Constitution don’t want to play by the Constitution.

You can’t undo a law you don’t like unless you follow the process. Otherwise you are no different from the playground bully demanding lunch money — loud, intimidating and wrong. Tea partiers, elect a president of your choice. Pass laws you like. That’s how it works. Methinks you do not understand the Constitution.
