I find it really irritating how Europeans and other non-Americans like to make stupid pronouncements about our Constitution when they don't have the first *&^%$#@ clue about the document and it's place and purpose in our country. Europeans(and others) if you won't do a modicum of research about the Constitution SDASTFU about it!
Seriously. Get a @#$% clue or stop talking about it.

I really don't give a crap about your constitution . Don't really feel sorry about people who get offended by people taking jabs at your country . How many times have america or americans stuck their nose and business where it never belonged . Deal with it or people of your country can stfu on any international affairs .

I take it this is response to my thread.....
Ok first I was asking a question, Iam allowed to make a thread asking questions and good for you if you can give me more info about your constitution.
This is an international forum where anyone on the net can give their opinion.
You have commented many times about other countries but when we ask questions or disagree with you, you rant about it.
Come on dude...read my last post in that thread.

I find it really irritating how Americans on an international website got so touchy about people talking about their constitution when it is they who brought the topic up in the first place.

I did. I also answered your question with information that took less than 1 second for google to locate. Our President is not a king, imperial ambitions of the last two occupants not withstanding. He cannot just change the law of the land at will. Unlike Europeans, correct me if I am wrong but I see no information to the contrary, we believe that our rights are not granted us by our government. Ultimate power and sovereignty resides not in the state, this includes our federal government, but in the people the citizens of our nation. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THE SECOND AMENDMENT! We have the right to overthrow our government should the necessity arise. THe second amendment ensures we have the power to enforce that right.

We can't even get many of our fellow citizens to read it, and understand it. I highly doubt Europeans are going to take the time to study it, and find out why it was written the way it was.

I read a post today that said we needed to dump it, and come into the modern age(Paraphrased). No thanks. I like it just like it is. I just wish our leaders took the idea of our constitution, and our republic, as serious as Solon did.

Ok but why get so mad about it?
FFS dude help us understand ok?
I prefer asking people questions about things to get a wider view of things because google can be BS sometimes.

Most Americans have never read it is what it seems to me.

And are you saying that someone from outside of the US cant understand the constitution and its place? Thats absurd.

Maybe Americans should mind their damn business in relation to the rest of the world. I dont think that will happen anytime soon though will it?

Unfortunate but true. They rely on others to interpret it for them. If more of us would read it and the historical context behind it's adoption, bammy and W would have been stopped in their tracks.

I did not say that they cannot understand. I am angry because they won't take the time to research it before making stupid statements like "Americans, isn't it time you gave up your guns" and other stupid stuff.

I am an isolationist libertarian. You are just preaching to the choir there.

If forced to choose one of those two, I would go with Daryl. However, if I were Daryl on that show, I would hook up with Michone and tell the rest to get bent.

Ha!



Damn, I kinda wanted to argue. I agree that many commenting on the constitution from UK have no idea.

Not that I have ever claimed to know much about it, but just wondering, what makes you say that?

The questions most Europeans ask and the assumptions that have to be present to even ask those questions.

The actress looks better than the character. However, I like her for her mental and psychological attributes in addition to her physical ones. They seem the two most likely to survive and they would complement each other's strengths imo.
