    I have read the U.S. Constitution and I agree it appears to adopt all the good things from most early european government. Also I believe that it is always good to have government in writing.

    Why should two nations have to suffer to help one nation? Whatever helps the most amount of people is the best.

    Note that odviously a dictatoral world government or individual rights being trampled is bad for everyone as well.
    Yes this is true. The common good is where we fall short. We do everything we can to stay at opposite ends of everything. Time to join hands and work as a world.

    Democracy is fine but it is to have all element to work in a government that is difficult. How can you get democracy to work for people if the people they don't work for democracy?

    Del, there are to many people in the world to work together for anything. I think religion this show us that people do not work well together even when the god they pray to is the same god.

    No.....wow, fascist much?

    They should have term limits for sure, lifetime appointments are BS. And there should be some way by which the People can directly remove them; say if 80% vote to oust a judge, he's gone. It has to be a high percentage, but it should be there. Make the judges more accountable to the People.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    As soon as the human species roundly rejects socialism, populism, collectivism, multiculturalism, religious fundamentalism, and statism I will welcome a one-world government, until then, I will die before I submit to its authority.

    Democracy is mob rule Jefferson was right. It has to be tempered by strong laws that cannot be voted down easily.
