[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] The President nor congress can just arbitrarily change the 14th. it will require an amendment to teh Constitution. [b]The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures.[/b] I for one don't want to see a Constitutional Convention because of the way they will trade our CURRENT freedoms around. You can bet that the second will be on the table and maybe even parts of the Fourth (illegal search and seizures) because so many practices being used today violate the spirit of the 4th, even if the SCOTUS "finds" them acceptable... Some of them have yet to be fully tested.The Constituion provides the Feds absolutely no control over drugs or food, yet they chave taken control of them. You can bet a convention would try to address that too... A convention should make everyon who loves freedom pretty nervous. The 14th was needed when it was written because slaves had no cosntitutionally granted rights and they were in no-mans-land leglly. The 14th cut thru that mess, but it is outdated today IMO. Primarily because travel is so much easier today then it was 150 years ago... Chinese people nd other foreigners come here just to have thei babies so they can take US citizneship if they wish to in the future. It's loophole that needs to be closed, but like i said, not thru a Convention.... The fact is that illegal immigrants are jumping the line. We should stop accepting applications from the illegals inside this country. Period. It only fair to teh people who are actually trying to come here legally and legitimately, we do want those people. The USA allows the most legal immigration of all countries in the world. We are a welcoming nation. [/QB][/QUOTE]
