it should be rare for a citizen to ever be in a federal court.
because under constitutional law, the federal government [congress ]only has authority over 4 classes of citizens...they are listed in the constitution
citizens were meant to argue their rights in state courts, ....with the citizen able to petition the federal government to hear their case, if they felt the state had not given them justice.
today everyone always talks about the bill of rights on the federal level, instead of the states declaration of rights.
marriage as i stated before.......whether you believe marriage is a natural right or a civil right.......you cannot use a right on another citizen ONLY ON GOVERNMENT, CAN YOU EXERCISE A RIGHT ON.
you cannot use a natural right against a natural right , to force getting a license.
you cannot use a civil right against a natural right to force getting a license.
