Government rewriting the laws

"Bush Ignores Laws He Inks, Vexing Congress" -- this is because POTUS is using what's called "signing statements" where he gives directions on how to implement legislation he signs into laws. Or he can change the meaning of a law by saying that he will take the "mandatory" part as an advice -- effectively weakening the law.

Not only is the government "above the laws" but willy-nilly changes it, too.

This sound eerily similar to what are described in a very famous document [if you're not familar with the quote, I highly recommend that you spend some time [re]reading it]:
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
