Usually[*], the NOP is the smallest instruction, so it may be used
to nullify other instructions, all of which are made to be multiples
of the size of a NOP. A jump type instruction needs at least
an opcode and an address (even if only relative), so is usually
larger than a NOP. On some machines, some short form of jump
may be just one machine word (a couple of architectures come
to mind, like the Z8000 for instance).

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
