If times are different, it's because we used to be known as a law-abiding nation, where the laws were meant to be obeyed by all that live in this country. I don't know if Congress used to exempt themselves from laws that applied to everyone else, but they can now. Coddling aliens that enter illegally, and are given special treatment, are a slap to those that still follow our laws on immigration, and that is not only wrong, but unjust.
My grandparents entered through Ellis Island from Europe, which was a long ride under Spartan conditions, and they were happy to be here, as were the millions just like them. They weren't out demonstrating against the country that took them in - they were learning English and finding jobs in order to be self sufficient. It wasn't that long ago when it was extremely embarrassing for a man to admit he couldn't provide for his family, though he tried his damnedest, or that times were hard around their place. And the women worked just as hard right alongside them. Was it personal pride in themselves that made a difference? I don't know, but they were humans like everyone else, and it wasn't easy

And yes, as far back as I can remember the congress has exempted themselves from almost all laws they have passed. They even exempted themselves from the civil rights laws.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
I shouldn't have been the only one who first thought this was a humorous, not-so-serious thread...
