What you want is one thing, what you get is determined at the ballot box by the majority..aka...democracy. Personally, I don't want to be ruled by a minority...and if you read Madison's federalist essays in context, you'd find that he didn't either.article 4 Section. 4. of the U.S CONSTITUTION
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.
i want republican government, , mixed government where power is divided between the people and the states...like the founders created.
I have and still the word 'republic' simply means "no monarchy".so i need to look at a dictionary? why dont you look at the federalist papers...10 and 39, and 40 , where it states we are a mixed government.
If we elected every position and voted on every issue that would be called a "direct democracy". There are many kinds of democracy. Our country is a "representative democracy".wrong .........Adams was elected by the electoral college...that is not democracy.........if we were a democracy every federal position, would be directly elected...and it was not created that way, ....only the house was a direct vote of the people..not the senate or the president.
3/5 person is a slave issue. A slave issue IS a racial issue. The forefathers believed the institution of slavery would soon end and didn't want to give it any legitimacy by putting the word "slave" in the constitution. So they called them "other persons".but the constitution states free people... it does not state citizen, so thats how its being interpreted.......why are you acting as though i am wrong..i am telling you what they are doing..thats all
correct.... it does not mention them by name, but the 14th was written for them...
3/5 of a person is not a racial issue..its a tax and representation issue......the south wanted to count them as 1 person for representation.
The 14th amendment, section 2, states that if any male over the age of 21 inhabiting a state is denied the right to vote, then the numbers counted for representation should be reduced accordingly.no...... i said the constitution states free people in the census, and said government is counting them in the census becuase of that wording... no.......the 15th it was ratified in 1870....3/5 is in the original constitution of 1787.....no .......its say a person cannot be denied the vote becuase of a former servitude...IE.. slavery...why i told you it was ......written for black people..the 14th amendment made them u.s. citizens, before the civil war there are only .....state citizens.
Illegal immigrants are not citizens and are not allowed to vote, but the states ARE counting them to get more representation in government. That is unconstitutional as per the 14th amendment. That is the point and only point I have been trying to make.
The 14th and 15th amendment remedied that problem, did it not?wrong, ......people have gone to court in early america, just average citizens, who were denied the vote, ...but they had voted before.
the court ruled.....if you didnt own property of pay taxes you didn't vote, the founders wanted people who have a stake in america
one case i am stating..... is about a man who sold all of his property and was no longer paying taxes on it, the court ruled since he sold them off he no longer had a vote....until he owned land and paid taxes again.
