It was argued in the Supreme Court that Fundamental Rights cannot be waived. There can be no estoppel against the Constitution which is the paramount law of the land. The court observed that “No individual can barter away the freedom conferred on him by the Constitution”. Now in the case of plea-bargaining the Right to Appeal is waived of completely once the accused has given his word about being guilty for the offence. But the accused does not have an inherent right to appeal against his conviction and the same has to be conferred by a statute.
What is more, the language employed in this argument is relatively neutral in that they are not emotionally charged. In addition, this argument is cogent in deductive logic. British constitutional democracy follows the rule of laws, but there are no constitutional devices for abolishing the monarchy, so it is illegal to abolish the monarchy; therefore, the UK should not abolish the monarchy. In short, the deductive logic used in this argument is convincing for the audience. However, there is no positive proof provided by the poster to justify the premise that there are no constitutional devices for abolishing the monarchy.
This means, that the first amendment ensures that the United States does not have state endorsed religion, nor does it write its laws based on religious edicts.

To understand why religious freedom has become so controversial, it helps to know what constitutes as religious freedom. The First Amendment states that there will be no law “respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” (First Amendment). This means that the government cannot establish anything considered an official national religion, and they cannot bar the practice of any religion within the United States as long as there is no danger “to others or to society at large” (Boston). Originally written to ensure that the religious persecution in Europe didn’t come to the United States, the First Amendment is “a major reason why the U.S. has managed to avoid a lot of the religious conflicts that have torn so many other nations apart” (“Your Right to Religious Freedom”). That doesn’t mean that the U.S. has been exempt from religious conflict, however, and there are many
The suppression of hate propaganda signifies an infringement of individual’s freedom of expression. An activity that conveys a message through non-violent forms of expression is protected under the s.2 of the Charter regardless of how offensive it is. Moreover, there was a misapplication of Charter, which made s.319 (2) of the Criminal Code to fail the proportionality test.

America was not to be considered for future colonization by Europe, because it was the land of the free. The speech was meant to cast light on the independent condition of the United States. For this reason, American was not going to take part in any European war. Only in the event in which the United States were to be threatened and put in danger, a war could be considered in order to protect America’s rights, peace and safety. In addition, the events in Spain and Portugal had shown the instability of the European system, and Monroe didn’t want anything to do with Europe internal matters.
The second amendment says that we have the right to bear arms, but it never specifies their intentions. Although this is true, there is doubt that the founding fathers thought that there was a need to specify which weapons we could possess and who they could be issued to. The intention of the second amendment was to protect ourselves not to destroy one
