Stuck? Yes, stuck with the great ones also.......

However, justices should serve for a limited time. 20 years?

Term limits for elected officials is an insidious, self-inflicted surrender of the power of the right to vote.

Repeal the Twenty Second Amendment, which was passed by a Republican congress and ratified quickly by Republican legislatures.

It was a vengeful assault on the memory of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

What do they think?

That hungry people will be too weak to vote?

Fools!

Dunno much about "subordinate".......

But what follows is in the Constitution and it "ordinates" the establishment of the United States and the framework - repeat: FRAMEWORK of government required to establish how and why the United States were ordained into a nation:

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


What then follows, I repeat, is only a FRAMEWORK or structure of government, guided by principles and practices of those days and the good sense and inspirations when the Constitution was written by the blessed Founders.

You won't find the precise words and phrases that cover every detail of the government operations to date.

That's NOT what Constitutions do!

Can we all agree on this........?


The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it.
It is the creature of their will, and lives only by their will.


Chief Justice John Marshall, 1821


If the leaders we elect or appoint fail to execute their oath to defend and protect us and our Constitution then we need to fix the Constitution to make it work in spite of the negligence of the people sworn to protect and defend it.

Great thread.......

In addition.....go here:

..... and look over some facts. Put it in your bookmarks/favorites.

It's nice to have facts when discussing such a vital topic.

Here is how the SS Trust Fund works, and more.......

http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/ProgData/fundFAQ.html#n4

Take the trouble to read these very simple instructions.

The Trust Fund is not green cash stored in warehouses. It cannot be stolen by anybody.

SS funds collected from payroll and elsewhere MUST be invested by law. They earn considerable interest, enough to pay administrative costs of the SS system.

Put away the suicide kit......

That was only one judge and one court. A way to go yet.

The French Revolution......

It is the French Declaration of Rights written in 1789 by the Marquis de Lafayette, with the assistance of his good friend Thomas Jefferson........yes, that Thomas Jefferson.

I do not see a "right to bear arms". Maybe I missed it.

What sense does it make to establish a democratic society guaranteeing the rights and safety of its citizens and then guaranteeing each citizen the right to possess and carry arms to "protect" those rights himself? So when an individual thinks his rights are under attack he goes out and fires away?

The society is created to insure the rights of its members specifically because an individual cannot and indeed, should not, by himself attempt to protect his own rights.

That is why he joins that society which forms that government whose sole purpose is the common defense and the common security.

We have rights crafted and affirmed for our individual protection,,,,,,,,

The constitution guarantees the right to own and carry guns.......

The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it.
It is the creature of their will, and lives only by their will.

Chief Justice John Marshall, 1821

The Second Amendment was a horrible mistake. Change it so that it makes sense.

Instead of arguing recall how about discussing......

....whether this new law would violate other aspects and mandates of the US Constitution? Like the right to a speedy trial....(Amend. VI)?

"AMENDMENT VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense."
