Maybe in right-wing fantasy. There is no appeal to ignorance of the express (Constitutional) law, dear.
.

You can keep repeating whatever nonsense you care to ... It means nothing without proper application.
It's not even an argument, and only aimless blathering ... But, expected coming from you ... :auiqs.jpg:

.
I can only lead horses to water. There is nothing unambiguous or unclear about anything I have posted. You won't get away with that before any judge, so why should I take You seriously now?

You posted nothing of substance ... And don't even know where the water is (figuratively speaking).
I am not arguing with you because you haven't made an argument to argue with.

If you expect any serious conversation, you may want to try presenting one.

Equal protection of the law is all the socialism we need.
.

Socialism is one of the problems, because laws that attempt to establish a responsibility to the collective ...
Cannot protect the individual's freedoms, ambitions, or property from the government.

One of the largest obstacles young people will encounter when starting a business is the government ...
At every level with zoning restrictions, licensing, permits, fees, workers comp insurance, unemployment insurance and matching SS and Medicare taxes on employees.

If a person is left to their ability to pursue their ambitions and produce at cost ...
They wouldn't need anything, and their success would not be hindered by government.

.
A person may not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law or denied equal protection of the laws
Why not? It happens every day
Not according to the law. Only illegals don't care about the law.
No, I think you will find a great many in government who don't care either.
That must be why it is left to individuals of the People to petition for redress of greivances.
Problem is, half the country is on drugs and the rest or docile sheeple who vote and do what the media tells them.

No critical reasoning skills?

Or we could just ship off a certain portion back to a country they all seem to praise but have never even been to, so much they nicknamed themselves after it.

I guarantee you a drastic drop in poverty and crime if it happened.

There are four high level ways to improve the situation:

A. What are we supposed to do about drug abuse, especially considering the left supports & sponsors it? That's a HUGE problem.

B. Like you say, put fathers back in the home. But today we reject responsibility supported by Democrats.

C. Put discipline back into the school system.

D. Get rid of leftists.

72% of Black households are run by a single parent who are women.

And the US spends more on welfare to fix it than any other country.

"The report noted that public spending on child welfare and education is higher in the U.S. than in other countries — $160,000 per child compared to $149,000. However, the authors say most of that money is spent after the crucial early childhood years."

The author seems to think that giving money earlier would change outcomes, but I highly doubt it. But don't expect big government Progressives to ever abandon ship. They will never concede that simply throwing money at problems and taxing people to death could ever not make the world a better place. It's basically all they know as they have rejected everything else.

Reparations anyone?

Blacks commit crimes more than 3 times that of other racial groups with fatherless run households leading the charge in this orgy of crime and poverty within the black culture


Did I forget that defunding the police is also not the answer either?

LOL.
This is a lie. But the source is a white supremacist.

How about if the private sector gave everyone jobs at a decent living wage with good benefits.

We could add public day care and free college education.

Then the government wouldn't have to interfere in people's private lives and welfare rolls would be reduced to only those that really could not work.

Yes, and poverty will always exist.

However, there are things that can be done to decrease poverty

Having a home run by a single teenage girl, probably with next to no education, there is no real way to escape poverty at that point.

There is no controversy here, just common sense
