For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers successfully separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of MAJORITY RULE and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the central and state governments.
http://www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_ite...
----------
In the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton railed against requiring what we now call super majorities, calling that corruption of majority rule "a poison."
Giving the minority a way to negate the vote of the majority, Hamilton wrote, in No. 22:
"...is, in its tendency, to subject the sense of the greater number to that of the lesser number...The necessity of unanimity in public bodies, or of something approaching towards it, has been founded upon the supposition that it would contribute to security. But its real operation is to embarrass the administration, to destroy the energy of the government, and to substitute the pleasure, caprice, or artifices of an insignificant, turbulent, or corrupt junto to the regular deliberations and decisions of a respectable majority."
----------
James Madison, in the Federalist Papers, No. 58, adds:
"In all cases where justice or the general good might require new laws to be passed, or active measures to be pursued, the fundamental principle of free government would be reversed. It would be no longer the majority that would rule: the power would be transferred to the minority...[In] particular cases, an interested minority might take advantage of it to screen themselves from equitable sacrifices to the general [welfare], or, in particular emergencies, to extort unreasonable indulgences."
----------
Not surprising, but the Constitution and the guys who wrote disagree with your stupidity.
The House has more R's than D's. Who's the majority?? Why is John Boehner called the "Majority Leader", who is in charge of the House.??
The Senate has more D's than R's. Who's the majority? Why is harry Reid called the 'Majority Leader", who is in charge of the Senate??
The "Majority Leader" is so important that nothing is done without the Leader's consent. No bills, no votes, etc.
Now, to complete your lobotomy, please point to anything in Government where the minority sets the rules.
You can't, so again you lose!!
At least you're not ashamed to come here and make a fool of yourself!!
That's something to be said for ignorance!!

The only rights specified in the Constitution are individual rights, idiot. There is no such thing as "monority rights".

If you are using the term "ghetto" because of the percentage of Jews in Boca Raton, then you are an anti Semite, but we know that.
I'm not Jewish, but you are an offensive, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynist pig. Like most in your party; that's why you lost and that's why you'll be long dead before another republican gets near the White House.
Without doubt Galt has some serious psychological problems, he attempts to cover up his indiscretions and major short comings by implying that all that don't agree with his fanaticism live in tenent houses or the barrio as he puts it. It's a poor mans way of feeling better about his uselessness and under achieving life. By trying to bring others down to his level...Kinda sad

Another right wing moron!!
Ever bother to do any research before making stipid comments??
I thought not!!
"" Women have taken part in Israel’s military before and since the founding of the state in 1948, with women currently comprising 33% of all IDF soldiers and 51% of its officers, fulfilling various roles within the Ground, Navy and Air Forces. The 2000 Equality amendment to the Military Service law states that "The right of women to serve in any role in the IDF is equal to the right of men." As of now, 88% to 92%[7] of all roles in the IDF are open to female candidates, while women can be found in 69% of all positions."
"""women can be found in 69% of all positions."""
Those statistics prove you to be a woman hating nitwit.
Thanks for exposing your prejudices.

You're an imbecile, after the Israeli's experience in the Sinai in 1973 they changed their military, it was a failure to expect the women to do what only men can.

Whenever we have a war it should be funded by an itemized, nationwide sales tax so that every time you make a purchase you know exactly what its costing us.

I did serve, unlike your cowardly ass, that's why I know girls can't cut it in actual combat, you're an idiot and likely a draft dodger or a traitorous scunbag like John Kerry.
The only reason there's even women in the military now is that standards were lowered.
No one that has actually serve would ever say that about women. You obviously are new here or you would know that I served 21 years in the US Army and saw more than my share of combat. John Kerry volunteered for Vietnam and so did Al Gore, unlike Bush and all of the draft dodgers that he surrounded himself with. What standards were lowered. you said it now prove it, LIAR.

Well, I found this that corresponds with the number of the video, and it's from December 15th:

However, it doesn't say anything about a final coroners report; you have misinterpreted it and this information had been updated since then.

Good idea; and I also love your idea about insurance companies regulating guns. Don't think it's cathing on though, perhaps no one wants that liability; it'd have to have a payout schedule per victim.

So your claim to fame is the fact that you can climb a 20' rope? Please tell us what all you can do that a woman cannot, and keep in military. You seem to have some women issues.

Well now they will be allowed to protest just over the fence, provided they get a permit.

Why would anyone be afraid to answer? Are you saying that people should not be allowed to protest wars?
President Obama did not start these wars; Bush did. President Obama has and will end them. There's a big difference.
You are the dishonest scumbag, or just a dummy like the rest of them. Nothing worse than willfull ignorance.

Where are all these "babies" you're referring to, I don't know about any mass baby killings.
