    Hey speaking of the Constitution and amendment process....did the Equal Rights Amendment ever pass?
    No I do remember. It failed. Was resurrected and clung at us again like a rotting corpse. Failed again didn't it? Equal Rights for Women as an amendment was shoved back down the throats of cultural Marxists.
    Yet it's the law. Weird.

    "educated and moral people of a common heritage".

    wow....white supremacists are really funny.

    if only you actually understood the constitution. the founders didn't even agree on things. but which thing do you think they were kidding about? equal protection under the law? freedom of religion for EVERYONE? no unreasonable search and seizure?

    which thing offends your bigoted little white christian supremacist heart?

    The 14th Amendment was ratified by every state. It is the law of the land. Don't like it, repeal it; I'm sure there are others who will support you in that endeavor.

    laws can be overturned or repealed. constitutional amendment would require that the whole amendment process be pursued again before the advances could be taken away.

    is that something you don't understand?
