Johanna Klein: Elected lawmakers work for the people

March 2, 2014 

Mayor Garrad Marsh and the City Council work for the people. Refusing to listen to the people violates their oath of office.

Jerry Brown and Attorney General Kamala Harris work for the people. Both have broken their oath of office by refusing to enforce the law, which they are required to do.

Proposition 8 is the law in California (The Supreme Court did not overturn Proposition 8), and illegal immigration is illegal.

President Barack Obama works for all the people, not just his friends. He has broken his oath of office by refusing to enforce the law and the U.S. Constitution. Instead, he rewrites the law or writes his own law, which is illegal.

When elected officials refuse to follow the law, the people soon follow. Always begins at the top.

We are fast becoming a lawless nation.
