We were founded on the constitution and it is the base of our government. We cannot go away from it. Without it our country would have more chaos and no structure to it.
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 2014 3:24 PM
A powerful point is made in saying "we just need to get back to the constitution". It's the right thing to do, but it's also like saying we need to get back to colonial times in general. Technology and knowledge have a great effect on how our government is run and who gets a say in what. Citizens of the United States are definitely blinded by some of the governments choices. We're always told that they're doing what's best for us, but in reality, it's probably what's easier for them. The country as a whole needs to take a few steps back and rework our vision for our future.
Margaret Silhasek's comment, May 24, 2014 2:38 PM
I definitely think that we need to go back to the Constitution like it's saying, but it is almost impossible. I feel like there are so many new things that come about that the government has to make certain exceptions and it's hard not to give someone else a little push towards success. there are so many things that are government does that helps one group positively, but another group negatively.

I think that it is bad that the US is even considering to join this treaty, because the country was founded while using guns. If we had been in a gun treaty in the 1700's, we would not be Americans right now, we would all be British. I do think that it's interesting that at one point, the constitution says "the constitution" instead of "this constitution", but either way you look at how it was written, the founders and the constitution still support guns, and not entering treaties.
Abigail Beinborn's comment, April 13, 2014 11:23 AM
I think this article relates well to the constitution and the right to bear arms. There has been a lot of controversy about this over the last few years. A lot would have to change in order for there not to be a right to bear arms or not to have a gun. What do you think is going to happen? Also, what do you think about having the right to carry a gun or not?
Joe Smith's comment, May 12, 2014 2:59 PM
This relates to the government because it's about the second amendment and the right to bear arms. It's a right to be able to carry guns and that can't be taken away.

How did this go on for such a long time? I don't think a case should be able to be appealed that many times. I also think its amazing how a person can be on death row but still be allowed to live life just guilty under law.
Rachel DeWaard's curator insight, May 1, 2014 12:20 AM

A man just got out of prison after serving 30 years for the murder of a 75 year old woman. After thirty years of denial, Elmore confessed to the crime, saying that he may have blacked out during the crime. He had spent most of those years on death row. Even though Elmore didn't remember commiting the crime, I still think it is low for him to confess 30 years later. The victim's family deserved closure and he could have delivered it to them.

Breanne Hemann's comment, May 2, 2014 11:55 PM
I think it is wrong for this man to be freed after 30 years after killing an innocent woman. I feel that in no way should he get the freedom of living a free life after taking someone else's life. I agree with Rachel's statement that it was low of him to confess after all that time.

I think it's all cool and all for everyone to show their best with their technological knowledge but I also believe this could become a huge issue and only end up a mess instead of an advantage. Don't you think there would be more disadvantages to this idea than there would be advantages?
Michael Hanson's curator insight, May 7, 2014 7:12 PM

This article is about the U.S government releasing certain types of data on "National Day of Civic Hacking" in hopes that hackers will help make the nation a better place. This article relates with gov. and law because it involves the White House.

I think it would be cool if they did that, but in the end I think that it might create a lot of problems with it!

This article is interesting because Obama claims that he is making America more equal for everybody, but this shows that he's only making it worse. He is making the gap between incomes even larger than it was before he took office.
Brian Bertram's comment, May 11, 2014 7:57 AM
From what I have heard obama is not a great president. He is trying to help but sometimes he is just making things worse. I think this is one of those cases. I think he had good intentions but it just didn't work out how it was supposed to.

New Statesman - Why federalism won’t save the Union

New Statesman - Why federalism won’t save the Union | Mrs. Dunken Government | Scoop.it

how anThe reality is that most Scots support greater fiscal autonomy and, so far, attempts to draw a line in the sand at the status quo - or, worse still, the Scotland Bill - have only played into the hands of the SNP. It makes sense, then, for unionists to seize the initiative by embracing federalism - or some variant of it - and handing Scots responsibility over the bulk of their financial and economic affairs. This would undermine the drive toward separation by sating the Scottish appetite for more self-government.

 

But would it?

Lakin's curator insight, April 16, 2014 1:17 PM

This article is related to government and law because it is talking about federalism and how it can't save the union. The union right now over in Ukraine is barely keeping it together with the rule of federalism. With this understanding they are trying to seek out other ways to improve it. By that they looked at the Scottish appetite that is more self-government that they liked. As well looked at other opportunities for the government. Do you think they will switch the union to a different government or just make changes? 

Reed Klunder 's comment, April 20, 2014 2:28 PM
In this article the Scots definitely need to figure out what they want to do. It was very back and forth but I don't think Federalism will help. That's a huge change and it doesn't really go a long with the rest of the United Kingdom. It's interesting to see that they are considering being a Federalism economy because you need to be able to provide a lot and I'm not sure if the Scots can do that.
Madison Blazing's comment, May 9, 2014 9:58 PM
This article discussed an interesting topic regarding a Federalistic economy for Scotland. There are some specifically beneficial aspects of adopting this system as well as some clear draw backs. The article mentioned that many of the Scottish leaders have a growing appetite for more independence and self government. I think that despite the many benefits,turning to Fedealism may be difficult because of Scotland's reliance on others nearby.

In response to khedlu17:

This article talks about how the US government records all private telephone calls. When did the gov't start recording phone calls? How is this not violating the fourth amendment? 

Joe Smith's comment, May 12, 2014 3:07 PM
The government should have a limit to how much they can monitor or phone calls. It' can help them in their work but sometimes it violates our privacy. It violates the 4th amendment
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 2014 3:16 PM
This relates to government because it is the government. They are violating the fourth amendment and disrespecting every citizen on a personal level. It doesn't make sense to have a constitution if the people implementing it can't even follow it.

I think Obamacare is a good thing to have because it allows other people who can't afford healthcare at least have some sort of insurance to help them out. I also think that when the government shuts down it affects everyone because a lot of public places are shut down as well as people's jobs. I think they should find away where the government can't shut down and they must work together to fix the problem without shutting it down.
Brian Bertram's comment, May 11, 2014 8:05 AM
I think it was a good idea for the government to shut down. They already spend more money than they make so it is god to save a little money. They should start doing it more often.
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 2014 3:35 PM
I think it's ridiculous that one thing can put a hold on every other thing in our government, and something that HF yet to occur! Congress was being childish. Although it saves us money not having a running government, it is necessary to have. If you have to avoid an argument because you can't reach a consensus, then you should be in charge of millions of peoples' lives.

I thought this was a pretty amazing story that these 2 men are so dedicated to the US they are willing to walk across America to share the Constitution with other fellow Americans around them. These two men live the constitution in their everyday lives and normally it just affects people in a government based class in school. They are helping spread knowledge with others around them and educated them on the constitution and the rights that everyone has.
Andrew Beighley's comment, April 20, 2014 8:21 PM
This article relates to government because it is about 2 veterans who are trying to raise awareness about the constitution. Their goal is to make it across the country while walking. On the way, they hand out copies of the constitution to people they meet.
Brian Bertram's comment, May 11, 2014 8:02 AM
I think that it is,cool that these veterans are trying to help people learn about the constitution. As a country I feel a lot of people have no idea what is even on it. I think it would be cool if they came by our school. I wonder if they have even came through Minnesota.
