American Civics deals with citizenship; not constitutional law, specifically second amendment cases. If the United Nations wants to take away an
Americans right to bear arms, then they'll have to get Congress and the American public to agree to it first, then amend the constitution itself.
Groups like the NRA, and possibly the entire southern half of the United States, will never agree to that. Although, I must admit, that was a great
attempt at appealing to authority. An argument from authority though, when misused (as you did), is still a logical fallacy, and hurts your position
more than it helps it.
What you're doing now, in case others' cannot see it, is shifting the topic. You're attempting to move away from your original post (which can be
right here) and on to a new topic. This being because you know your
original conspiracy theory on the Illuminati is false. So, what a real academic would do is admit to their mistake, letting the people reading this
thread (see them as your students if it helps) know that you no longer believe in the stance that you began this thread with. It is just good business
to accept your mistakes with as much conviction as you initially made them.
At least, that is what an authority figure, like a teacher, should do.
Anyway, on to the UN. Yes, our constitution did come under some fire. But mostly on privacy fronts. Infringements which we allowed our government to
make because we believed in conspiracy and blatant lies such as American insurgents. Instead, what we have under the current regime is a president who
- pulled us out of the worst recession in 80 years
- attempted to lower taxes
- killed Osama Bin Laden, and aided in Ghadaffi's removal
- saved American car companies
- aided in 2 years of private job growth
- helped end an unnecessary war and begun bringing home our troops
- fought to help legalize gay marriage in some places
- fought to help Americans get health coverage and insurance with PPACA
America is on the mend, recovering actually, under the Obama regime. If any Republican has achieved that rap sheet in 4 years, he'd be hailed as the
god danged Messiah. I was hoping you, as supportive of the left, would have at least been able to look at Obama's activities outside of a
conspiratorial or biased lens. I guess I was wrong again though.
Hey, let's do this together:
As a member of the Freemasons, and a scholar on secret societies (like the 1700s Illuminati, the 1800s Golden Dawn, and 1900s groups like the
Argentium Astrum A∴A∴) I was wrong to think you were liberal enough to see the good Obama has done our country.
