All governmental power in the United States of America comes from the people. ----- The "just power" is "Man" or "consent of the governed." It means the people of the country who are being ruled by the government are the "just power". The government is only in control as long as the people let… them. For all in Rux's American History... -FrickeFresh We have two words here just and power. Just - Correct or right. Power - Action. How do we measure a correct action. If I as an individual take my neighbors property and give it to someone else, this is theft. Not a correct action. If I set in front of my house 24/7 with my garden hose, in-case of fire. This is impractical, but still a correct action. Because I and all of my neighbors have this power we can hire a fire dept. Because the people ask the goverment to do some thing does not make it JUST. (MORE)
Generally, a sovereign government cannot be sued unless it allows itself to be sued. In the United States, Congress has passed the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) allowing the U.S. government to be sued for the tortious negligence of its employees that causes personal injury or property damage. Prior… to bringing a lawsuit under the Federal Tort Claims Act, it is required that a written claim be presented to the offending government agency. After the written claim is presented, six months must pass before a lawsuit may be filed in United States District Court. If the claim is denied in writing by the agency, the claimant must file suit within six months of the date of denial. Generally, a written claim must be presented within two years of reasonable knowledge of the cause and existence of the injury, even for minors and incompetents. There are numerous other details and restrictions under the FTCA and it is advisable to have an attorney represent you in this potentially complicated area of the law. Other laws that allow claims to be made against the United States government, but do not allow a lawsuit may also apply such as the Military Claims Act (MCA) and Foreign Claims Act (FCA). (MORE)
The Vietnamese government cannot arrest a U.S. citizen if the Vietnamese agents are operating within the United States and want to nab the individual here. In the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, however, a U.S. citizen can be detained. Limits on detention are different for those with diplomatic immun…ity, but anyone other than a diplomat is subject to the laws of Vietnam. Just like a Vietnamese citizen who is in the U.S. would be subject to American laws.. Answer . One can be arrested in any country where one happens to be. (There are a few exceptions, such as diplomats, etc). Ordinary people don't enjoy immunity from arrest.. (MORE)
They have more guns and the will to use them. Other countries have lots of weapons too. The ones that don't have guns probably also lack running water or medicine. Be a big boy and choose a side. _________________________________________________________________ Honestly to tell you the truth i… used to have full trust in our government until they started spitting out and stuttering on obvious lies after the Kennedy incident, after they started lying on all that, i lost absolutely every single last bit of trust i had in our government, and i still don't trust then at all, and honestly neither should you. Think about this for a second, why do we still trust them now? 1. they defend us from invasions 2....... yup thats right there is no second, they say there fighting things like inflation but there not, it they wanted to truly fight inflation they would take there precious money machine and rip out the plug and start paying the debt with there own money from taxes and junk, not just print print print, more, the more they print to pay there debt the lower its value, they way i see it, with in 30 years we will need a tuck full of money just to get a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread, think about it people. our government, is screwing us over no matter how you look at it if you just take the time to actually think. Speaking of the government screwing us and the post above mine about them having the will to use our guns, well i can tell you this much when martial law decides to rear its head, i wont be afraid to fire upon our own supposed "Protectors", to protect my family from getting dragged to one of supposed "FEMA housing developments" those are prisons for us to die, not small housing communities, think about this for 1 second WHY IN THE HELL DO THEY ALL HAVE BARBED WIRE FACING INWARD? THAT IS DONE TO KEEP PEOPLE IN NOT OUT. Think about that one everyone and i hope you see things a bit differently and start to see things as they truly are. (MORE)
The President established the Resettlement Administration and later, the Farm Security Administration to alleviate the plight of the migrants and rural poor, and also to attack the root causes of environmental degradation that brought about the dustbowl conditions. The Civilian Conservation Corps (C…CC) and the Soil Erosion Service were established to deal with the environmental issues. In 1935, the Prairie States Forestry Project was created to create a "shelter belt" from the Texas Panhandle to the Canadian border. Trees were planted as windbreaks and new farming techniques initiated by the New Deal stopped the dust storms. (MORE)
Yes, in fact the Constitution specifically contemplates this in Article 3, Section 2, Clause where it states the judicial power extends to cases ". . .between a State and citizens of another State. . ." This did not mean that a state could not be sued by its own citizens. It meant that federal judic…ial power took over when the dispute crossed the border. State governments do not enjoy full sovereign immunity (for that matter neither does the United States). They (and the US) can be sued. (MORE)

The executive,Legislative and judicial. The United States Congress is the legislative branch of the federal government. It is bicameral, comprising the House of Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representatives consists of 435 voting members, each of whom represents a congressional di…strict and serves for a two-year term. In addition to the 435 voting members there are five non-voting members, consisting of four delegates and one resident commissioner. There is one delegate each from the District of Columbia, Guam, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa, and the resident commissioner is from Puerto Rico.  House seats are apportioned among the states by population; in contrast, each state has two Senators, regardless of population. There are a total of 100 senators (as there are currently 50 states), who serve six-year terms (one third of the Senate stands for election every two years). Each congressional chamber (House or Senate) has particular exclusive powers-the Senate must give "advice and consent" to many important Presidential appointments, and the House must introduce any bills for the purpose of raising revenue. However, the consent of both chambers is required to make any law. The powers of Congress are limited to those enumerated in the Constitution; all other powers are reserved to the states and the people. The Constitution also includes the "necessary-and-proper clause", which grants Congress the power to "make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers." Members of the House and Senate are elected by first-past-the-post voting in every state except Louisiana and Washington, which have runoffs. (MORE)

The Judicial branch of the U.S. government is the federal court system. The third branch is the Executive, con…sisting of the U.S. President and his/her delegates. (MORE)

Any powers not enumerated to the federal government are state powers. Traditionally, these are called reserve powers .
It is complicated. First, the link between any particular act of terrorist violenceand the Iranian government is very difficult to prove. Most of theterrorist organizations supported by Iran are funded withoutregards to their particular missions. Second, it depends on whatcountry you come from. Cou…ntries that lack relations with theIslamic Republic of Iran cannot sue that government in their homecourts. (The United States has an interesting agreement with Iranto settle claims between citizens of one country and the governmentof the other.) Third, it depends on the statute of limitations forthe particular crime in the particular jurisdiction you are suingin. The best advice would be to ask a local attorney specializing insuing foreign governments for redress of grievances. It is alsoworth noting that nothing in the Answer is legal advice nor does itcreate any attorney-client relationship. (MORE)
\nIt depends on what happened to you to want to sue the state. If you have suffered a loss or injury from the state or one of the states agents/employees then yes you might have a case. But the question is so vague. But yes you can take your local, state, and federal government to court.
New York City, New York, was the first capital, from 1789 until sometime in 1790, when the federal government moved the capital to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The United States government relocated to its permanent quarters in Washington, DC, in 1800.

Many Mormons have served as senators and congressmen over the past 100 years, practically every senator and congressman ever elected from the state of Utah has been a Mormon. The highest ranking Mormon to ever serve in the U.S. Government was Ezra Taft Benson. He served as secretary of agricultu…re to President Eisenhower. He was instrumental in shipping thousands of pounds of grain from the United States to Europe after World War II. The highest ranking Mormons currently serving in the Congress are Senator Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada. He is currently serving as the majority leader in the Senate. Senator Orrin Hatch is a republican senator from Utah. He gets a lot of press as one of the more conservative leaders in the senate. (MORE)
Because the Indians have a treaty that defines their status and means of resolving disputes; and the Jews don't.Additionally, English common law (on which US law is partially based) contains the doctrine that the sovereign (in this case, the federal government) cannot commit a legal wrong and is t…herefore immune from civil suits. This principle of sovereign immunity can be waived, and the US federal government has done so (through the Federal Tort Claims Act and the Tucker Act) for certain specific types of cases. Otherwise, the federal government must expressly consent to be sued. This is usually held to apply to state governments as well. (MORE)
The government controls everything. They want you to tell them that you are going to sue them so they can get prepared to start a defense. BOTTOM LINE: THEY DONT WANT YOU TO WIN IN ANY CASES!!! HAHAH
Yes they can. The Federal Tort Claims act was put in place in 1948 and it allows private people to sue the Federal Governement. The act challenges sovereign immunity.
Do you plan to represent yourself or hire an attorney? Because you had better have a seriously compelling case with tons of supporting evidence to get anywhere. Most attorneys won't touch it, and if one is willing, and needs money up front to start the action, then he is probably a crook. If you hav…e a cause that needs justice, or help of any kind, try to find help first by working IN the system instead of against it. Maybe it shouldn't be that way, but you need to consider what it is you really want and how much effort, money and time you are going to devote to it. Then ask yourself if it is going to be worth it.

The three branches of government (Judicial, Legislative and Executive) each have a different job. They are separated into branches so they can check eachother, making sure none of the three have too much power; thus creating checks and balances.
In some instances a private citizen can sue a federal agency. But, as in all lawsuits the action must be specific, such as a suit against HUD, not the "federal government" in general.
You have to find one or more doctors willing to state that you are not able to do any kind of work at all for the rest of your life to be able to get disability, and your medical record has to support this claim. If you could sit in a chair and hand out movie tickets at a theater, then Social Securi…ty does not view you as disabled. It is not the amount of illnesses or diseases you have that qualify you for disability. It is the inability to work, ever, at any job, permanently that will qualify you for disability. Many applicants make the error of assuming that if they have enough health problems, they will automatically qualify for disability. As stated previously, it is the inability to work at any job, anywhere, at any time, doing anything that will qualify you for disability. There are attorneys who specialize in disability cases who will represent you with no fees collected unless you win your case. I would recommend contacting one of these lawyers for assistance. (MORE)

Any one or entity may sue any one or entity for anything, strictlyspeaking; so what you really are asking is "Do I have grounds?"which establishes whether your premise for lawsuit has merit; andthen "Do I have a case?" which might help determine if a lawsuit isin (your) best interests. It is at lea…st advisable to first follow and exhaust the "chain ofcommand" options in the military arena; many relief or aidprograms, often unofficial, might provide relief for your complaintwith this path, that will otherwise become more difficult orimpossible to obtain once you have set the establishment againstyou by bringing a lawsuit. You are surely not dealing with monsters, and most likely have justnot reached the right ear yet. Best of luck. (MORE)

In 1786, the US Government was organized around the Revolutionary War Articles of Confederation. But even then, just a few years after the end of the Revolution, it was obvious that the Articles of Confederation weren't working, and there was a movement to convene another Continental Congress to rev…ise them. That Congress met in 1787, but we today refer to it as the Constitutional Convention, because that was the result. Not a revision of the Articles, but an entirely new Constitution that would guide the country forward. (MORE)
