Everything is subordinate to the needs of people not rules, not governors or presidents or any public officials, or anyone, for that matter.
We should decide issues on the basis of what people need and nothing else. Rules and people can change just as the Constitution has changed over the years. Man and woman should be the center of the universe, period.
While the founding fathers did a great job of creating the type of government we have, their voices should not guide us today. We live in a far different society than they did.
