There are so many lawyers in Congress, I thought I would open a topic that might interest some of the folks on this board: The Missing 13th Amendment. Here’s the XIII Amendment everyone is familiar with: Here’s the missing XIII Amendment: Which 13th Amendment do you prefer? I personally prefer inserting the missing one without repealing or changing the one everyone knows. Just move the later amendments higher by one number. (That is probably too complicated for all of those lawyers in Congress to handle.) Incidentally, Lincoln signed yet another XIII Amendment that allowed slavery. The Civil War began and that one was forgotten. The article at the first link is good place to start if you are unfamiliar with the missing XIII Amendment. Should you read it you will understand the title of this thread. Here’s a brief excerpt: Missing 13th Amendment To The United States Constitution By The Pen Reprinted from the Oregon Observer for April 1997 Missing 13th Amendment; 16th never ratified! Even if you do not care to read the entire piece please go to the link and scroll down for some facts about the Income Tax Amendment. Next The items on the following list clarify the missing XIII Amendment: The Missing 13th Amendment You really have to click on each item in the above list to get a handle on the topic; most items are very brief. There are one or two things I don’t agree with, but number 4 is especially interesting. There’s plenty more on the subject that you can find on your own if your curiosity is peaked. Should you require incentive just imagine no lawyers in government. NOTE: Royalists are still screwing the country not to mention the Constitution. And I’ll bet that you thought Americans won the War for Independence? Finally, it’s no wonder lawyers who claim they defend the Constitution are busy chipping away at it. They’re afraid the missing XIII Amendment will be implemented. I have a strong hunch that the concept of a “living, breathing, Constitution” was an insurance policy designed to protect against the missing XIII Amendment. If the Constitution is a living, breathing, document, there is no need for constitutional amendments. The only thing you need is judges who are lawyers to begin with. Can you imagine lawyers trying to repeal the missing XIII Amendment if it was implemented today?
