John Locke was a philosopher and political scientist. He had many interests and produced a number of writings that influenced future leaders. One of these leaders was Thomas Jefferson, who was involved with the aid of America and the act gaining independence from Britain. The Declaration of Independence and Locke’s views on government contain many similar aspects. These ideas includes the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (natural rights); the protection that is provided by the government for these rights; and the altering or abolishment of government if it fails to provide and protect the rights of the people.
The constitution protected the right to marriage and requires states to implement these laws equally but the Supreme Court should not engage in judicial policy making. Scalia argued that change should be enacted by elected officials as stated in the constitution and allowing the majority of the Supreme Court to decide would go against what the constitution outlined for policy making. The Supreme Court’s ruling creates a questions based on religious freedoms: Is it legal for business owners, with objections to same-sex marriage, to refuse wedding goods and services to a same-sex
In the novel it states,”I couldn't have felt really and satisfactorily fine and proud and set up over any title except one that should come from the nation itself, the only legitimate source” (Twain 37). Hank holds to a very American way of thinking. He thinks only a democratic vote matters, and that the will of the people is more important than what the people in charge have to say. Chapter 13 reveals a lot of patriotism. It states, “ that all political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their benefit; and that they have at all times an undeniable and indefeasible right to alter their form of government in such a manner as they may think expedient ” (Twain 61).
Congress, trying to not make the same mistakes as Britain, wrote that all people could protest peacefully without any violent recompense, and that they had the freedom to do so. They said, in Amendment 1 of the Bill of Rights, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (U.S. Cong.). This not only meant that Congress gave rights to the people to protest their issues, but also gave them freedom of speech, press, and the ability to petition the government, much as they tried to petition with Britain with their grievances. The colonists lastly complained about the presence of a standing army in the colonies, and petitioned Britain as
I believe that one's ability to trust a certain religion or not having a religion at all is solely up to that person to decide. Congress should not inflict or interfere with anyone's belief because that is their own personal private domain. While people may influence how you perceive your religion nobody should ever be in the way of your beliefs. Such as in the case Torcaso v. Watkins. Appellant was appointed by the Governor of Maryland to the office of Notary Public, but he was denied a commission because he would not declare his belief in God, as required by the Maryland Constitution.
In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson says, "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." Jefferson suggested with that narrative that the new type of democratic system created by American colonies would be the opposite of the oppressive government of Britain. Thomas Paine makes similar claims in "Common Sense" saying,"The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind...we have in our power to begin the world
The idea suggested by a Massachusetts senator, Caleb Strong, was built off of the views of a federalist by the name of James Iredell. He believed the United States was a representation of the powers the states gave up, but it had no right to take what powers belonged to the states. The United States consisted of a group of sovereign states. The United States can only control the states with the power they allowed the government to have. Many senators and representatives liked the idea as well as Patrick Henry, James Madison, John Marshall, and Alexander Hamilton.
In today’s era, the Constitution holds most controversial rights that determines our history. The United States Constitution has provided powerful words, such as “We the People” and “all men are created equal” done with careful evaluation by the Founders, including the Bill of Rights that holds 10 amendments under the Constitution regarding a balance between an individual and the government; however, the document defines the American political system and government relations between citizens and its government
Force people to vote takes away their individual rights. The democratic country will not be democratic anymore by taking away its citizens’ rights. According to Sen Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, said on Fox News, no voting is also a legitimate choice that some people make”(Sherfinski).

If police deny and ridicule people, they are going against the constitution. Amendment 10 ¬ States’ rights- This amendment means that any power not given to the federal government is given to the people or the states. ¬ How do you know when federal forces should step in? ¬ How do you know when it is state problem only? ¬ How much power can state police departments have?
The Supreme Court can and will take down any state rulings that interfere in foreign affairs. If an unavoidable clash happens between state and federal law, then the state law is said to be obstructed by federal law. That Congress has not preempted the states from acting in this realm does not, however, mean that the Constitution itself is also silent. In a handful of cases the Supreme Court has held that there exists a “dormant foreign affairs power” that resides exclusively within the federal government — even though Congress has said nothing. Pursuant to this doctrine, the Court has struck down state statutes that intrude into that sphere of foreign affairs which the Constitution entrusts solely to the president and the Congress.
