Steele Attacks Kagan For Citing Thurgood Marshall's Criticism Of Slavery | TPMDC
And Steele would be correct. The Constitution was not flawed. The Founders realized that they couldn't get rid of Slavery at that moment in time so they severely limited it's practice and handicapped the slave states in the Consitution so that it could be ended later down the line.
Unfortunately, instead of doing the wise thing to end slavery they went to war over it.
Get off your knees there Avatar, the founders got plenty of that in their lifetime. The Constitution was flawed. It wasn't just the 3/5 part that was wrong either.
You go Michael Steele.
Kagen wrote her thesis on socialism..
what does her thesis have to do with this thread?
why hasn't steele been booted yet
He is doing what the Republican Party wants.
A black man defending slavery.
Look how many poor people they get to defend tax breaks for the rich and sending American jobs overseas.
They are masters at screwing their base. And the base LIKES IT!
The three-fifths rule empowered the Northern States. Remember... population allows more representation. The Southern States would have had a representative advantage if slaves had been fully counted.
It's true that the founders 'kicked the can down the road', and the price for that was blood.
But it's also true that the U.S. Constitution has a built-in method of repairing problems through the amendment process.
Hahaha. Jesus. You just defended slavery as the right thing to do at the time.
There are no words.
