So what exactly happens if a case appeals it's way up the chain to the SCOTUS, only to get a 4-4 deadlock?

Does it default to the lower court's ruling?

That has never happened. Ever. In the United States history.

It won't result in her being stonewalled. It will result in work arounds while she Is in, or shortly after she leaves, office that will lessen the importance of SCOTUS.

If I understand it, it defaults to the states ruling.

Every kid is in a government registry of births and I bet a bunch of other registries. Presumably some registry exists for naturalized citizens as well.

Yeah... Doesn't work like that here. We have birth certificates and shit, and the various local governments keep birth and death records, but nobody goes digging through that unless they have to.

I mean, what's the point in sending someone a letter to register to vote in Florida if they moved to Colorado when they were four? How's the state of Colorado supposed to know when you moved there when your parents only had to show the tax man a mortgage payment to prove their residency? How would they even get that person's address?

Shit changes, people move around. No way to keep track of them all.

In Germany, people have to notify the government that they've moved. If you don't, you get fined.

I still haven't done so because I don't want them to stick a sticker on my nice and shiny ID.

They've got no choice now. They're on the Trump train whether they like it or not.

That we are. So how long before you realize this isn't a game?

I suppose that is the price to pay for your increased decentralization and state rights.

Honest question: How centralized is Canada in such regards?

I ask because landmass size in the U.S. is not comparable to that in Europa.

Provinces take care of education and health. Trudeau is trying to play a part in it, however, which isn't surprising as the Liberal Party always tried to centralise more than it should.

Some provinces mind it more than others.
