President Donald Trump is moving ahead with the citizenship question for the census, even though the Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional. Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed funds for the Alaska Supreme Court based on the abortion decision he didn’t like. They need to read their respective constitutions and remind themselves they are not above the law.

Both cases are wrong on so many levels. If we continue in this direction, we’ll be nothing but a loose collection of petty dictatorships. It is our duty as patriots and citizens to stand up to both administrations and make sure we vote these two individuals out of office.
