The U.S. election cycle is the most consequential in our lifetimes.
In the months leading up to the November election, political commentators, academics, pundits and journalists alike have been busy trying to answer this question: which political platform will best deliver America’s best future?
On one side of the debate is the traditionalist view that the best platforms are the ones that offer the most options to Americans, regardless of their political views.
On the other is the democratization movement that believes that Americans should be free to choose from a wide range of political options, but also believes that we should have the freedom to choose the platform that best serves our country’s future.
This is where we stand in this election.
In order to fully understand the future of America, we need to take stock of the past.
The history of the United States, both at home and abroad, shows that democracy has always been the guiding principle of our political system.
For thousands of years, our democracy has evolved to accommodate different views of government, political parties, and individuals, and to reflect the changing needs of our time.
In the modern era, democracy has become more global, and many countries around the world have moved away from the tradition of electing their own leaders to the idea that elected leaders should represent the people in power.
As a result, many of the most important decisions in American politics are made in local, state, and federal elections.
But the history of this process also shows that our country has always operated under the concept of “the rule of law”.
In fact, it is precisely the legitimacy of this system that has been the foundation of our democracy since the Declaration of Independence.
This concept was first laid out in the Constitution’s Second Amendment, which says that “[i]t shall not be the privilege of the people to infringe the rights of others, but the right of the governed to keep and bear arms, and for other purposes”.
Today, this concept is also reflected in the Second Amendment.
The U: First Amendment guarantees that “[t]he right of citizens to keep & bear arms shall not … be infringed”.
But the Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments protect that right in much more profound ways.
In fact, they also guarantee that we must not infringe that right when we enact laws that are passed to protect it.
In a constitutional democracy, the people are the ultimate judges of their own rights.
They should be able to choose which political party, candidate or party platform they want to use in order to govern their lives.
The Founding Fathers, for example, did not consider that the Constitution could be used to limit the freedom of the press, which would have prevented the government from regulating the speech of any individual.
Instead, they recognized that the people’s fundamental right to freedom of speech was “inextricably linked to their right to keep arms”, as John Adams wrote in the Federalist Papers:”[T]he people must be protected from the encroachments of a despot who would oppress them by the sword, and from arbitrary rulers who would violate their liberties by the ballot box”.
The Founding Fathers were also clear that a strong and independent judiciary was required to ensure that all citizens are treated equally under the law.
The Constitution’s Due Process Clause allows for the courts to hold that laws are invalid if they do not “adequately” protect an individual’s rights.
This is why the Founders created a strong judicial branch, which includes the federal judiciary.
It is also why they also established the right to trial by jury, which guarantees that the rights guaranteed by the Constitution are protected at the trial stage.
The role of the courtsIn the early years of the republic, the federal courts were the only institution capable of hearing constitutional claims.
In addition, the Constitution provided for the states to decide disputes in their own courts.
In 1791, for instance, the state of Massachusetts refused to recognize the legitimacy and supremacy of the King, and the American colonies refused to ratify the Treaty of Paris, which was negotiated by the British in 1783.
In 1789, the U.K. attempted to force the states of the Confederacy to secede, which led to the American Revolution.
This was the moment that the framers of the Constitution first made clear that they intended to give states the right and responsibility to pass laws that were not subject to federal control.
The U.N. Charter in 1792 states that “all treaties concluded in pursuance of the present Convention shall be valid and binding for the purposes of the same”.
The U: Constitution, however, has not allowed the states the ability to pass new laws and to change the terms of their treaties, even when those changes would have protected the rights protected by the United Nations Charter.
The first constitutional amendment to the U: Charter was passed in 1791.
It allowed states the power to pass state constitutions, but it did not give them the ability, in most cases, to change or
