The Tea Party Against The 14th Amendment .
When the Racists and the Bigots Are in Charge
So,emboldened by the somewhat strong showing in the midterm elections ,(although not the tsunamy prognosticated by the talking heads)and with a scorched earth approach to governing the right wing nuts have among other little jewels of policy making and legislating 14th amendment for if not completely reversing it which they know is impossible try to chip away at least part of it as is the denial of US citizenship to people born in the US The hypocrisy of these people has no limits,it's almost comical to hear one of the darlings of the extreme right Mark Levin who dedicates great parts of his radio show to lecture his listeners on how the democrats and liberals are always trying to legislate from the bench and interpret the constitution according to their convenience tell us now that where the 14th amendment clearly and unambiguosly states "ALL PERSONS BORN OR NATURALIZED IN THE UNITED STATES,AND SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF,ARE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF THE STATE WHEREIN THEY RESIDE"
Now,it seems about thirteen or fourteen states want to followArizona's lead as the US capital of hate and deny citizenship to the children of illegal aliens, and therefore punishing someone that wasn't even born for a supposed offfense of his parent,think about it, even if you are a dittohead you have to see the injustice in this!!!
So the net result of these policies would be the creation of an underclass, much to the similarity of the untouchables in India,people without a country, without nationality,modern 21st century pariahs.
