All of the ice-cream and other toppings work together and play a certain role to look and taste like a banana split The banana split would not work with out the base of the banana and the extra coating of the other toppings. John Kasich vetoed Racino amendment to allow new racinos in Ohio (December 2014) Ohios government lets me have my freedom with the Bill of Rights and limited government, while maintaining order with the Constitution. The Bill of Rights and limited government protect my rights in many ways. Limited government keeps the government from controlling too many aspects of my life. Limited government is when the government provides rights and boundaries it cant overstep. For example allows me to practice my religion of choice without hurting others. A Supreme Court case in Ohio is one example of how Ohio is balancing freedom and safety.When an Amish man wanted to go hunting, the man didnt want to wear the bright orange vest because it was against his religion. He got caught and was fined, but he took the case to the Supreme Court. The Court decided that although the man didn't want to wear the vest he needed to wear it because it was his choice to hunt. The court ruled he had to wear the vest because when he chose to go hunting it wasnt part of his religion, therefore he had to use the safety requirements that went along with it. Another example is under the Bill of Rights people are allowed the freedom of speech. If someone uses their freedom of speech to say something that is not true and hurts someone's reputation, they are allowed to file a lawsuit for slander. The Bill of Rights lets us have the freedom of speech as long as we use it within the law. The Ohio Constitution brings order to Ohios government because it defines the rules of the state of Ohio government and the people. For instance marriage is defined as only a union between one man and one women (128). This example is one where each state has used their constitution to define marriage differently. Another example is under article XVII-elections elections for state and county officials shall be held on the first tuesday after the first Monday in November. The Ohio constitution maintains order by being very specific so no one can have any problem understanding what is expected. Ohios government balances my freedoms with order by having a Bill of Rights, limited government that me keep my freedoms, and the constitution which keeps order by making all the rules for the government very specific so everyone can understand.
