Some high-ranking Republicans have come out in favor of repealing the section of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees citizenship to any person born in the United States -- as a means of immigration control.
I immediately called my local representative from local 521 of the Mainstream Media Elite (M. M. E.) and was told to come out against the idea or lose my membership card. But I’m going to defy my M.M.E. representative and let the chips fall where they may. The dues are getting too high, anyway.
In fact, let me go on record as saying that proponents of the repeal such as Sen. John Kyl (R. Arizona) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R. South Carolina) are being too conservative – no pun intended. Why not go back to the source?
The first 10 amendments – Second Amendment, excepted, of course – which we sometimes refer to as The Bill of Rights, are at the root of the immigration problem and most of our other social ills. The First Amendment is particularly troublesome since it is so broad.
Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, a free press and the right to peacefully assemble and complain is a virtual formula for disorder and dissent. There were those among the Founding Fathers who opposed the Bill of Rights but they were shouted down by radicals whining about an “age of enlightenment” and “equality.”
Repeal the first 10 amendments and, among other things, it will remove the obstacles to a national religion, which many people wanted in the 18th Century and some still want today. Or amend the First Amendment to say: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, as long as the religion is Christianity.”
Let us not forget the damage done by the Fifteenth Amendment, which guaranteed a person’s right to vote, regardless of race, creed color or previous condition of servitude. It took the vote from its rightful owners and gave it to those with a bad attitude about class distinctions.
While the country was still reeling from the Fifteenth Amendment, a group of radical feminists pushed through the Nineteenth Amendment and gave hormone-challenged women the right to vote. Tell me we haven’t strayed too far from our white, male dominated culture, the one that God intended for this nation.
Come on, Republicans, stop pussy-footing around. Go to the source of the problem.
