There is only one way to change the law, and that is the federal legislative process.
We can discuss the potential injustice on an internet forum, or we can contribute to the legislative process.
GSFowler- thank you very kind response and crystal clear clarification, as can tell I was not only one questioning this..... as is that not what Forum's like this are for.....?????
Concur, Federal Legislative Process is only right way to change law, and keeping that in mind, would not a lot of issues- recurrent- in host of veterans post's here and as well other Forum's be considered to a large extent "bottom-up" feedback..... for say SuperModerators like MAWParker(sp), whom believe has in fact addressed congress or sub-committees a time or two if not mistaken- please correct me if wrong on that score????
You make excellent points about the system
Do not think I am only one this post and or others, whom has made excellent points- on numerous topics, just consolidated to some degree (successful or unsuccessful) the thoughts of other members this Thread........and many other members make excellent points all the time....or bring to light issues, by asking questions and stating problems with system they are experiencing and how asking how to resolve them....etc.....
Is it not kind of like the "Gettysburg Address" by Abraham Lincoln states (see for example only, web-address-http://rmc.library.cornell.edu/gettysburg/good_cause/transcript.htm "The Gettysberg Address-Transcript of Cornell University’s Copy" ) and I quote from previous listed web-address in "italics": "that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
I would argue, potentially, that "the people" are to some degree by and large the members of this Forum, as well as others,( I simply think this one is the best), etc.... and as such would not necessarily consider what is discussed as "injustice" per say, but more akin to issues- some perhaps requiring resolution of some sort from much higher legislative authority as you say, brought forth by "the people," many of whom to some large degree gave their "last full measure of devotion" in places like Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, Somalia, the Balkans, World War I, World War II, etc.....
Do not know, but simply could be entirely wrong, and way out in left filed.......would not be first time nor last......
Thanks GSFowler and fully support your comments here.....on legislative process.... as no system created by man is ever going to be perfect.....
