Re "Same-sex couples to receive federal equality" (Page A1, Feb. 9): Our country was founded on governance by law, not men.

There is a disturbing trend at all levels of our government for executives to decide what laws they will or won't enforce, abrogating their sworn duties unless they agree with them. This is the height of arrogance, a bureaucratic dictatorship, a rule by fiat, completely against all of our democratic principles. It will destroy us.

I voted for Barack Obama to be president, not dictator. Although I agree with his beliefs, I would now vote to impeach him and all the other petty dictators who would destroy this country by ignoring their duty to further their personal beliefs. The ends do not justify the means.
