Does it bother anybody else that Police are required to abide by the Law, but certain citizens aren't?

What about that Members of the Armed Services are required to take an oath of allegiance to the U.S. Constitution but the Citizens & immigrants aren't?

What about that every Official gathering is to have the American Flag or that this same American Flag is draped over every deceased Armed Forces Member and Veteran's casket but can be stomped on as a "Freedom of Speech"?

What about required IDs at everything but certain individuals voting?

What about all of those Elected Officials giving themselves raises but Armed Service Members and those of us on Social Security aren't?

What about these same Elected Officials throwing a Welcome Mat to Refugees who wipe their feet on the U.S. Constitution?

What about people who we welcome onto our soil who then demand the rest of USA change our lifestyle to accommodate them?

What about freedom of expression for everybody but Christians, Property Owners, Business Owners and...and...

Our Elected Officials have passed Legislation (Laws) that have set up an almost Middle Ages or Dark Ages type social structure. There is The King, Noblemen and serfs (peasants). If you are a working person, we're the serfs (peasants). There is a difference today though, we have those who are living off the backs of those who are working. Today, there is new group who can say anything they want, destroy anything they want, disrupt anything they want, believe anything they want (including dismantle or ignore the U.S. Constitution), vote without proper identification, and we serfs have to just take it! Welcome to the chaotic age of Public Elected Officials OFFICIALLY APPROVED Double Standards.

Double Standards simply are set of accepted or allowed behaviors, codes, decrees, Laws, policies, etc., that favors one group or person over another.

Most of us were raised to treat the janitor the same as some CEO. Now, the CEO might be miffed by this but it just shows that CEO needs to do some serious personal internal cleaning.

Over our life times we've all met people who presented more dignity than any paid position, more wisdom than earned degrees & more leadership skills than the ones who were supposedly "leaders". Of course, there are those who possessed so little of the qualities for the position they held that we felt sorry for their subordinates.

The LAWS that are to govern these UNITED States of America should hold ALL accountable so there are no Double Standards. It is The STANDARD for all who set foot on our soil and/or are in its Service. This is true whether it be in or outside Washington DC, Austin, TX, Wilson County, TX or some place like Benghazi.

Something within us demands equality, it's called justice. Justice simply is what is equally fair, lawful or follows morally established guidelines. When these are disrespected we all want justice to level the playing field.

These UNITED States of America have a foundational written set of Principles called the UNITED States Constitution. Once this document is weakened there will be no justice but a divisiveness that is going to lead to anarchy. Double Standards cannot be allowed even by our Justice system. What holds Generals and Soldiers to The Standard must hold Elected Officials. What holds you accountable must hold me accountable.

We are together these UNITED States of America or we are UN-raveling Citizens of America. hrg
