I mean, is creating werewolf fanfics and spamming anyone who dislikes your `beautiful creatures` really necessary? I believe wolves are cool, but there are other creatures out there that deserve the love wolves get much more than a dogs wild counterpart....

The supreme court would still exist and can declare things unconstitutional as they do now. Basically it would work the same as it does now, just we are replacing congress with the people. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2...
