    All of South America has extradition treaties with the US. I guess most South Americans love the US government.

    You prize yourself so much in being different that it becomes an end in and of itself, it's kinda funny/weird.

    That courts can and do reverse themselves illustrates their fallibility, even within the system. Crazy decisions like the Obamacare decision, and many many others, illustrate the political nature of the court, much to Madison's chagrin.
    So did you say that federal judges knew more than you or not?

    You disagree with something. That's fine. When you become adamant that it's entirely impossible for anyone else to be right, you become a zealot, a joke.

    Their current "human rights" record is exponentially better than our own! Your sarcasm is grounded in fantasy.

    Yet, I bet if you disliked them you would still cooperate with them and work as a team. Think of the world in from that perspective.

    If a country wants to be able to extradite runaways to their own country sometimes diplomacy is required and they may have to give the same to another country, even one they generally dislike.

    I think you are the first person I have ever met who thinks the majority of the world LIKES our government.

    Your level of maturity is not winning you any arguments.

    I didn't say they liked. I don't think the majority of the world cares. But I'm very curious as to why you brought it up in any way, shape, or form if you admit it has nothing to do with the situation whatsoever.

    That was what I was driving at.

    You guys are talking in absolute statements and my laughing at you is the problem in this conversation? Interesting.
