It continues to amaze me that it is the "powers that be" in Washington that are allowed to make the final decisions about the fate of our nation.

And with many good reasons it is an entirely reasonable demand. Whatever the reasoning, the American People have spoken on this issue time and again.

Eventually the American People will stop and say enough is enough.
