They are "given to you" by other peoples' blood.
I agree but more depth and breadth required there
Courts enforce the law, if you don't like a supreme court decision, then put whatever right it is into the constitution.
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.
If the Supreme Court started taking them, a whole bunch of laws would be struck down.
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
I agree with those for sure.
Though, they could get you into trouble in war time.
I am thinking of that
Or when one of very many regular natural disasters occurs.
because technically Article I section 8 doesn't actually say that we should have a standing Army, just a Navy
Oh, I was talking about the budget thing.
big time reforms for sure
I would say let states handle it, but in practice it doesn't work well
As in, if you have to always pass a balanced budget, what happens if you NEED to spend more than you have?
if you have corrupt dinn du's in charge of New Orleans during Katrina
not the the Feds did much better, but its a disaster...it's suppose to be a shit show
There are plenty of calamities of old, and more and more fresh new ones that could happen at any moment.
Your handling of it isn't supposed to be a shit show.
OH FUCK! I forgot. No more Dual Citizens in congress or federal appointments, NO foreign lobbies ect...
Australia has the no Dual Citizen rule.
That said, there are many, many things on which you do not want to imitate us.
I want to go there I have never been
I met Australians in Afghanistan when I was deployed
At my mother's home there are native hens, pademelons, ring tail possums, echidnas, and eastern barred bandicoots.
Well, the occasional echidna passes through.
(We have a lot of ant nests.)
Sugar ants, piss ants, and, unfortunately, bull ants, inchmen and jack jumpers.
I want to go Bow hunting in Austrailia since I will not go to South Africa for a Safari
Oh, why is that?
just want to hunt critters for food in a exotic place
not a trophy hunter
are kangaroos good to eat?
I used to love roo and wallaby meat.
It has a bit of a strong flavour for some but I always liked it.
I live in Arizona and many people don't know we have Mule deer, wild pigs, ect..
very awesome state to live in
My home state is Tasmania.
Absolutely beautiful place.
