    It is time to erase the foolish notion that just because you breathe air gives you the right to go to any place you want & impose yourself upon the inhabitants.....
    Unless you are a conquering force.....

    Even in the U.S., the will of the people is limited. There are certain things the government cannot do, even if an overwhelming majority support doing them. You can find a list of these forbidden things in the U.S. Constitution. Most are in the Bill of Rights.
    In the us we have a representational form of democracy. In switzerland they have a more direct form of democracy. I prefer their form of democracy.

    The idea that we can't have any opinion about anything another country does is pure bull.

    Never said that, did I?

    Can we or can we not have an opinion on what other countries do?

    Do you care how Iran and Saudi Arabia treat it's citizens? Do you complain about places where they force women to wear burkas?

    "Impose yourself on the inhabitants" - that's ironic.

    Again you completely and totally dodge the point.

    Do you believe in U.S. constitutional rights or not? Yes or no please.
