    But no. They went through a legal process. It's proper law.

    He was claiming the government is doing it anyway, so how is it possible people have the right to control their own property and their own labor.

    You don't appear to even understand why the bill of rights exists.

    We've been down this road before and you couldn't prove that statement then, either. I'm not going to go through it again. If you insist I'll look up the thread and you can pick up where you left off over there. You're wrong until YOU prove otherwise. You couldn't do it before so I'm pretty sure you can't do it now.

    Knows more (resisting have fun about cars and planes and the Internet). Wrong framing again. Simply, Madison didn't live through civil rights and the last two hundred years. If he had, he too would have likely argued for changes to meet the new Robles. They don't duck them when they were alive, I doubt they duck them now. We've lived a history in which we faced challenges and addressed them. And rather well overall.

    no a license is to prevent fraud, misrepresentation, and clean safe and healthly conditions at my business, ...morality does not play a part of law.

    becuase who decides what is moral.....government?...never given that authority

    There is no such thing as a right to equal treatment when it comes to arrangements with your fellow citizens.
