I would have a discussion if you can keep it informed. The right to peaceful assembly is a prohibition against government power in an effort to protect individual/minority (as in lesser numbers, not ethnicity/race) rights from government oppression. It is an idea, a philosophy, a "thing", it does not "do" anything. It did not create. Men did.
As for laws denying or allowing, there is such a thing as "disparate treatment" as opposed to "disparate impact". When laws, policies, or procedures have a discriminating effect, whether or not they are on their face discriminatory in nature, they ARE in fact discriminatory. About the only thing we seem to agree on so far is the apathy of the American voter.

Do you really want to pick this argument against someone with a law degree?

All that aside, you are assuming the thumb was from me.

I'm not making any assumptions about the thumb. There is a "votes" button that I can click that tells me who thumbed me (it's in the little white options thing to the right of "reply"). I can plainly see it was you. I really would rather not play the thumb game. Please remove the red thumb. I would expect somebody with a law degree to be more mature than that.

I'm working on a law degree myself. I actually agree with you that there is a difference between disparate treatment and disparate impact. Given that you have a law degree, then surely you know that in Constitutional Law, there is no one "perfect" way to interpret the Constitution, in fact, there are many interpretations (Plain meaning, original intent, living constitution, etc.). I'm not trying to make any arguments about what the Founding Fathers intended when they wrote the First Amendment. There is absolutely no way that we can know for sure.

However, what I am trying to say is that there is no way we can eliminate political parties without also infringing upon the people's right to assemble. Let's say that we outlawed both of the current parties. What would stop people from just forming new ones? Outlaw the formation of any and all parties? Wouldn't that be, in effect, outlawing the people's right to political assembly? I absolutely think there are problems with the current system, but also that they can only be solved from within the parties themselves. That's why I encourage people to get informed and become politically active.

The right to peaceful assembly has absolutely nothing to do with putting a chokehold on who can run for an office.

Do we want to play the thumb game? Or do we want to have a discussion? We can keep the thumbs at 0 if you'd kindly go ahead and remove the red thumb.

Anyway, the right to assembly is exactly what created our political parties. It's what has created political parties in every other democratic government ever. Here's the thing: people have always realized that their voice has more power alongside the voices of others. That's what political parties do, they give people a platform to make their voice heard alongside others of similar beliefs. Also, there's absolutely no law saying that a candidate from neither of the big political parties cannot run for elected office. So it's not the political parties who have created a chokehold, it's the fact that Americans are too lazy to do their own research, and would rather just have a party tell them who to vote for. Again, if you want to change anything, join up with one of the parties and get on the platform committee, create resolutions, or run for office.

Yeah, the Romans used to drag the leaders of conquered nations along the parade route in chains. The Soviets would invite Western dignitaries and have planes fly over, which would return to a base just outside Moscow, repaint them with different numbers, then fly them back over the observation stands to fool NATO observers into thinking that the Soviets had more planes than they actually did. Having the service members march is great, but the equipment show of force just comes off as over-compensating for something. Before the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001, the Taliban staged a parade in Kabul which included machine guns mounted on Toyota trucks. Pathetic.

They did have the first ten amendments, otherwise they would have over thrown our government. If the Militia Men could bring down the greatest military in the world during that time, we could be brought down too. And to bring up voting is irrelevant. Not even the white man's voting is NOT protected by the Constitution.
The govener (Daton) has the most power, and says if the bill passes or not. Therefore the laws are mostly Democrats. Let's face it, he will pass the laws that only Democrats want. And Fraken brings state issues to a national level. That's in the job description as Senator. It helps get a new perspective.
