In the first place, Republicans are not trying to ban the 14th amendment on birth-right citizenship. There is a difference between "legal" and "illegal" people in this country. A child born to illegals is also illegal and should not be a citizen. When the Constitution was written there were no illegals in this country. We had open borders. Once our population became excessive and the government enacted rules on immigration, that amendment should have been changed. It was a failure of our congress not to have rewritten the amendment to better reflect the new immigration policy. In the second place, what are you referring to when you say they want to ban religious freedom? I hope you aren't referring to the mosque issue. This may surprise you, but there are many rules and regulations that limit the placement of buildings in this country. You have to agree, this is pure bull. The Muslims are making a statement. Get ready, you'll be bowing to Allah soon enough, if you aren't already. Our current government wants to eliminate Christianity.
But, I do agree that both parties have lost any semblance of common sense, and they all seem to be driven by power and control, not the servants of the people that they are.
