Donna: Black & White “natural born” (incl. dual national) American citizens can become President (unlike s44 discrimination in Australia) and have civilian criminal & civil juries (unlike most of Europe/EU) (02.06.2020)

 

 

There’s a remarkable amount of political propaganda in the world, churned out by the news cycle.

 

 

... it was somewhere away from the news cycle... 

 

 

Black & White “natural born” (incl. dual national) American citizens can become President (while the Electoral College which can change the outcome of a popular vote along with perpetuating a narrow two party system arguably needs reform) and people have civilian criminal and civil juries.

 

However in Australia “natural born” citizens cannot stand in Federal politics or become PM if they are also errr... “natural born” dual nationals too (and/or acquire/d dual nationality by another means)

 

Meanwhile, most European countries don’t have criminal or civil juries, which does mean the British Commonwealth & European/EU legal system is problematic with regard to common law and cross border legal issues, but nationals or dual nationals of one country can stand in politics in another country, although it doesn’t yet happen often, and Australia has the additional problem of s44.

 

The British Commonwealth & Europe/EU need to legally reconcile mutual obligations regarding dual nationals in politics and criminal and civil juries, because they are legally both quite backward compared to... any American government.
