    We would not have had a civil rights movement without it. If we left it up to the states, we would still have segregated water fountains

    I would emphasize a different part than you did.

    Unless you are all bent out of shape by section 3...?

    Thank goodness the constitution gives prohibits states from doing certain things but you guys still seem to think that a few limitations placed on the state seem to eliminate all other powers that they retain for themselves. Why you don't get that is something beyond me.

    Of course they should, and they do. Could you imagine the confusion if every little detail of what constitutes due process were left to the courts to determine after the fact and on a strictly case by case basis? *shudder*

    The entire 'amendment' is to be opposed as it was never Constitutionally ratified.
