10000 Islands Regional Message Board
First you need to become an XKI citizen by joining the WA and registering on the offsite forum.
Then you have to join a party. After that, all you need is an opportunity to run.
Games like Shadow President remind me that I probably shouldn't be a world leader because eventually I'd start thinking "hey, I'm bored. I wonder how many nukes it'd take to erase Cuba!"
I recommend you start here: http://10000islands.proboards.com/board/2/10000-islands-political-parties
It does, in fact, not.
"A well regulated militia [...] shall not be infringed"? I don't think that's a proper English sentence, even in the 18th century. If what you're saying were true, it would be something along the lines of "The right to form a well regulated militia and the right to bear arms shall not be infringed". Note the use of "and" to logically tie together the subjects to which the verb refers. You can see that in your example on the fourth amendement:
"persons, houses, papers, and effects"
"searches and seizures"
That conjuction is missing from the second amendment, so the verb (shall not be infringed) refers only to the subject in front of it (the right to bear arms).
The part of the second amendment that talks about the well regulated militia does indeed name the cause for that particular right (i.e. the right to bear arms) to not be infringed. It's basic English grammar. You could easily re-write it as "Given that there is a need for a well regulated militia in order to provide security for a free state, the right to bear arms shall not be infringed" without changing the meaning.
Whether or not that right may be infringed for those who aren't part of a militia is a whole different can of worms and as a non-American I will not get into it. That requires an understanding of how to read American laws that goes well beyond basic grammar.
Hmmm, I'm...quite surprised Alkasia got more votes than Woon in the regional poll :'D
Only some Americans believe this.
Something being written a long time ago in fancy sounding English does not make it true.
The USA has a gun-related death rate of 11.96 per 100,000 per annum. This is many times higher than in similar westernised democracies with stronger gun control (e.g. UK: 0.23, Australia: 1.04, France 2.83, Canada 2.05).
Tyranny is prevented through well-structured democracy, freedom of expression, separation of powers where appropriate, and a culture of valuing freedom and free action. No amount of guns will help you if elections are corrupted processes, if your president attacks the free press, if your leaders past and present misuse and overuse unilateral executive actions, and if the national narrative is being taken over by a climate of fear. Your best defence against tyranny is not a rifle, as the army and the police will have bigger guns, better armour, bigger budgets and higher tech toys. Your best defence against tyranny is a well-educated population, a police force taught to talk rather than point a gun at you, a budget that doesn't devote too much of taxpayer's money towards the armed forces, and mechanisms to ensure equality of outcome as well as equality of opportunity. Your best chance of that comes from a president who doesn't chummy up with tyrants while turning on democracies, and who doesn't lie routinely as a default position.
A gun is not democracy. A gun is a tool for killing people.
If you want people to die, then fight for your guns.
If you want freedom, then fight for truth, education and social progress.
Already have lol. I joined the forum about 170 day ago but it's confusing and i offically give up on it lol
Hey man, if you have doubts about the forum set up, feel free to TG me, or any other regional officer or member of the regional government.
And to your right, you will see the memorial where the American dream went to die at the hands of stone cold logic and rationality.
I am pretty sure that the American lawmakers, bureaucrats and others have actually done a decent amount of research on this as much as anyone else, and if there exist people in the country that don't see logic and facts, but the fear peddled by a propaganda machine, there must be a reason for it, an ulterior motive or objective for the people selling this fear and the resulting misinformation. I firmly believe that if that root is identified and exposed, such debates won't take place over and over again.
