    Women are a targeted demographic for a lot of special interests because they have a lot of untapped power.

    They need to think more for themselves and not at the bidding of special interests trying to control them and use the leverage they have for their best interests, not someone else's.

    Terms like "the people", "general welfare", "common defense" and "more perfect union" would seem to suggest otherwise...

    Stop bickering. Stop attacking each other. Neither of you is the topic of this thread.

    I know I am not allowed to question a mod. I don't mind that you gave me a warning. But in all honesty, it is not bickering. I was sticking up for a person for a good reason. I am quite disappointed that although there were mods posting in this thread that a warning would be given to me for bickering but a thread ban was not give to the person who told a potentially suicidal person to go off themselves. I am very disappointed. If it were my forum and I seen a person do that to another person I would have forum banned them.

    Maybe there is the chance that you didn't see those posts. But I am not sure about that,since you were also posting in the thread. I may get forum banned for questioning a mod, and if I do, I accept it with honors. But it is sad that a person can say what Cletus did to another human being and no one step in and say something. What is this world coming to where that kind of behavior is acceptable. But behavior like mine is not. Behavior where a person stands up for what is right is frowned upon. This is not normal in any way. I am disappointed.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    That's its fatal inconsistency. It speaks of one thing, but fundamentally endorses another. An unfortunate result of the grand compromise. Despite its nationalist packaging, it is underpinned with the protection of the individual rights above all others which undoubtedly leads to the confusion about America's identity. It truly makes the life of a SCOTUS justice difficult.

    An interesting discussion on this point here:
    T[t]here are two different approaches to the Constitution, the republican one and the democratic one. They're each based on different conceptions of "We the People." If you take "We the People" as a group, and you're concerned with "We the People" governing, then the only way that the will of the people can govern is by majority rule. So then anything that gets in the way of majority rule is suspect and potentially illegitimate. Which includes judges getting in the way. Judges are not accountable, they're not elected, and if they get in the way of the will of the people there is something wrong there. That's the democratic Constitution.If you take "We the People" as individuals, as I believe the Declaration of Independence does, then the purpose of government, according to the Declaration, is to secure the rights of "We the People," each and every one of us. Then government is the servant of the people, and the function of judges—who are also servants of the people—is to fairly adjudicate disputes between members of the sovereign people and their servants. People as a group yields completely different judges than people as individuals. "We the People" as individuals yields a republican Constitution and in the book I maintain that the Constitution we have is a republican Constitution.
