- Prohibit the federal government from regulating or interfering in activity that takes place within state boundaries. Meaning if you have a small business and your business doesn't cross state lines they cannot regulate you.
- Require Congress to balance a budget annually
- Prohibit Federal Agencies from creating "white paper" laws (legislating via policy) Like the ATF, EPA, Ect...
- Allow 2/3rds of state legislatures can vote to overturn a supreme court decision
- It takes a 7 justice super majority to overturn a law passed by congress
- Affirmation to limit Federal power only to Article I Section 8 of the Constitution
- States have the right to sue the Federal Government

-2/3rds of the states can vote to overturn federal law

2018-02-28 12:54:18 UTC  

"Allow 2/3rds of state legislatures can vote to overturn a supreme court decision"

2018-02-28 12:54:27 UTC  

Retarded, courts exist for a reason.

2018-02-28 12:54:55 UTC  

If you're that butt blasted about something that you can get 2/3, have a constitutional convention.

2018-02-28 12:55:10 UTC  

Constitutional conventions exist for a reason.

2018-02-28 12:55:36 UTC  

Most of these were from the 2015 Convention of the States proposed amendments

2018-02-28 12:56:28 UTC  

do you think your rights are given to you by the courts

2018-02-28 12:56:29 UTC  

?

2018-02-28 12:57:06 UTC  

I understand your point

2018-02-28 12:57:36 UTC  

They are "given to you" by other peoples' blood.

2018-02-28 12:58:45 UTC  

I agree but more depth and breadth required there

2018-02-28 12:59:22 UTC  

Courts enforce the law, if you don't like a supreme court decision, then put whatever right it is into the constitution.

2018-02-28 13:00:02 UTC  

The liberals in the supreme court KNOW how it will rule on 2A cases, so they make efforts to make sure that it does not take them.

2018-02-28 13:00:57 UTC  

If the Supreme Court started taking them, a whole bunch of laws would be struck down.

2018-02-28 13:01:27 UTC  

I mean the big ones for me.
- Require Congress to balance a budget annually
- Prohibit Federal Agencies from creating "white paper" laws (legislating via policy) Like the ATF, EPA, Ect...
- Affirmation to limit Federal power only to Article I Section 8 of the Constitution

2018-02-28 13:01:46 UTC  

I agree with those for sure.

2018-02-28 13:02:01 UTC  

Though, they could get you into trouble in war time.

2018-02-28 13:02:13 UTC  

I am thinking of that

2018-02-28 13:02:32 UTC  

Or when one of very many regular natural disasters occurs.

2018-02-28 13:03:00 UTC  

because technically Article I section 8 doesn't actually say that we should have a standing Army, just a Navy

2018-02-28 13:03:44 UTC  

Oh, I was talking about the budget thing.

2018-02-28 13:03:51 UTC  

oh

2018-02-28 13:04:03 UTC  

big time reforms for sure

2018-02-28 13:04:40 UTC  

I would say let states handle it, but in practice it doesn't work well

2018-02-28 13:04:48 UTC  

As in, if you have to always pass a balanced budget, what happens if you NEED to spend more than you have?

2018-02-28 13:05:23 UTC  

if you have corrupt dinn du's in charge of New Orleans during Katrina

2018-02-28 13:05:47 UTC  

not the the Feds did much better, but its a disaster...it's suppose to be a shit show

2018-02-28 13:05:53 UTC  

There are plenty of calamities of old, and more and more fresh new ones that could happen at any moment.

2018-02-28 13:06:14 UTC  

Your handling of it isn't supposed to be a shit show.

2018-02-28 13:07:14 UTC  

OH FUCK! I forgot. No more Dual Citizens in congress or federal appointments, NO foreign lobbies ect...

2018-02-28 13:07:53 UTC  

Australia has the no Dual Citizen rule.

2018-02-28 13:08:59 UTC  

That said, there are many, many things on which you do not want to imitate us.

2018-02-28 13:09:46 UTC  

I want to go there I have never been

2018-02-28 13:10:18 UTC  

I met Australians in Afghanistan when I was deployed

2018-02-28 13:11:07 UTC  

At my mother's home there are native hens, pademelons, ring tail possums, echidnas, and eastern barred bandicoots.

2018-02-28 13:11:30 UTC  

Well, the occasional echidna passes through.

2018-02-28 13:11:51 UTC  

(We have a lot of ant nests.)

2018-02-28 13:12:25 UTC  

Sugar ants, piss ants, and, unfortunately, bull ants, inchmen and jack jumpers.

2018-02-28 13:12:27 UTC  

I want to go Bow hunting in Austrailia since I will not go to South Africa for a Safari

2018-02-28 13:12:49 UTC  

Oh, why is that?
