Nobody takes right wingers seriously about being moral enough to bear True Witness.That was a failed and desperate attempt to appease the Democrat Slavers, who were supposed to end Slavery back in 1820 which was agreed to in 1788.Many "Republicans" in this forum are truly dishonest people.
The Corwin Amendment
The Corwin Amendment, also called the “Slavery Amendment,” was a constitutional amendment passed by Congress in 1861 but never ratified by the states that would have banned the federal government from abolishing the institution of slavery in the states where it existed at the time. Considering it a last-ditch effort to prevent the looming Civil War, supporters of the Corwin Amendment hoped it would prevent the southern states that had not already done so from seceding from the Union. Ironically, Abraham Lincoln did not oppose the measure.
The operative section of the Corwin Amendment states:
“No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.” Edited
In referring to enslavement as “domestic institutions” and “persons held to labor or service,” rather than by the specific word “slavery,” the amendment reflects wording in the draft of the Constitution considered by delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which referred to enslaved people as “Person held to Service."
In 1861, Congress proposed a constitutional amendment to protect enslavement. What was the Corwin Amendment and did Lincoln actually endorse it?www.thoughtco.com
Senator William H. Seward and Representative Thomas Corwin introduced the Corwin Amendment, both were republicans. Edited, red is reserved for moderator's action on the open board.
This is what Democrats do. They lie and kick the can down the street. Just like they have done with Slavery and Emancipation. The Dems are Oppressive and Abhorrent, passing all sorts of Ungodly rules and regulations in the Democrat South. Segregation (Biden is a Segregationist btw) Jim Crow, Poll Taxes, Litteracy Tests, KKK on and on and on. In 1964 All Southern Democrat states flew the Confederate Flag over their capitals as a protest to The Republican Civil Rights Act.
But let's back up a little more. How do you explain The Emancipation Proclamation, the And all The Civil Rights Bills for Black Americans the Republican party tried to pass from 1864-1964 that Democrats opposed? T
Worse yet, how do you explain Democrats opposition to basic Human Freedoms and Human Rights over the years?
The Republicans put forth ANTI-Lynching Bills every years since 1890 and Democrats opposed those every single time until they were unable to stop the following bill from being passed in 2019.
How do you explain that?
How do you explain The Democrat Logo? Andrew Jackson's Mule was used to hang Native Americans and Runaway Slaves on. There is no more racist symbol than The Democrat Jackass.

Did You Hear that RIGHT? The Democrats have not changed a bit. They were born in slavery and oppression, and they will die promoting slavery and oppression.
Passed the House of Representatives February 26, 2020.
The republicans control the Senate. Why did it not pass in the Senate?
