I have a complete copy of the constitution and I do read it and understand it and I served to defend it. And I think all Americans should learn it.
I know what the supreme court says about the so called seperation of church and state.
It does apply only to the federal government. When the constitution was adopted all 13 of the states had some form of state religon affiliation and that situation continued for years.

If Arizona wanted to defend its borders from foreign nationals crossing its borders illigally it was right to do so.

To call that an immigration situation is a very long leap. But our current administration can make a leap like that with no problem.

That's why I think you should respond..

Back to my premise, The supreme makes law de facto by its decisions.

And the president makes law by decree.

And congress could do something about it and they don't.

And certainly you hate that the 2nd amendment gives the people the right to keep and bear arms.
If we lose that right we will no longer be a free people.

Stuck.

We are living in the soft counter coup, the 2nd American Revolution, and wiseone, a complete FOOL, is going to lecture us on the Constitution?

HILLARY IS DONE. SHE'S COOKED. TRUMP is a third party independent candidate. Figure this out Virginia.

IS THE UNITED STATES REALLY UNITED?

Postby Cannoneer » 2018 Apr 05 11:52

In my opinion the answer is NO?
We have a large segment of our population doing everything it can to undermine a dully electer president for the simple reason that they are upset that their candidate didn't win.
Even though a sovereign nation has a right to evect people who enter their country illigally there are elected officials in our country who interfere with that process and some judges go along with those elected officials in spite of the law.
Even a blind man can see our racial divisions. And I do mean every race. Each group pitting itself against the others. We have all become hyphenated Americans. Based on either race or national origin. We are not a melting pot but a stew.
Riots have become commonplace. People who are here illigally march in our streets waving defiant banners with no fear of being apprehended.
E PLURIBUSUNUM is on our great seal. I think E PLURI US PLURIBUS better suits the way things are today.

We have many people, many groups, many interests ... all with their own notions of what is best for us and our country.

And so it has been since the first days of the United States. I love our diversity, the different points of view contending for acceptance, the struggle ever to make life better.

We can be United in supporting many paths, to accommodate us all ... rather than forcing all to travel down the same path, chosen by an authoritarian who aspires to be a dictator.

Once again wise one, or should I say Stonewall? You don't have a clue of what makes a Nation of united people. This country used to be one.
And why did you bring up the president in reply to my post?
Everything you wrote is only your opinion and its all wrong.
OMG your ignorance knows no bounds.

THAY'S BULL COONDOG.

THIS CRAP STARTED BEFORE TRUMP TOOK OFFICE. AND ITS NEVER BEEN THIS BAD IN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY.

I never advocated armed resistance to the government. An armed citizenry is what keeps tyrants in line by the meer possibility of armed resistance.

That is why the right to keep and bear arms is in the constitution

I was tempted to say that The Supreme Court of the United States is dead.

But it isn't. It's worse than that.

It (not journalists) has been converted by the Republican Party into a .

It has never been so bad as it is now.
