    But you also mention people treat violators. That's an unwritten law being enforced. Nothing new in them.
    treat violators?

    government is using its power to force people to behave in a matter they see fit.......which is unconstitutional

    however government is given no moral authority in the law, or over the people, government is not here to make you moral or immoral..

    Nonsense. They are enforcing the law. People decided that such unfair treatment over race was illegal. People are the government.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    the 14th amendment is aimed at governments only.......it does no address the people or businesses.

    the constitution does not limit people or business...that would be against the founding principles of our government.
