Re: A New Constitution

if it was destined, then it must occur regardless of right or wrong I wouldn't presume to think for god; I'm simply going from what is recorded that he did -Imp If you say, 'might makes right', then there is no right and wrong, because everything could be right or wrong depending on how the majorit...
