    They are both part of the same federal constitution, one amendment just happened to be added latter.

    In some people's interpretation of the Constitution, EVERY Amendment is secondary to the 10th. What they fail to recognize is that when the Constitution is amended, it changes, and what may have been previously not a Federal power is now given to the Feds.

    I presume that he meant that a under the 10th Amendment, slavery was not regulated by the Federal government. BUT, the 13th changed that. So it's not a 10th Amendment issue anymore, because the 13th gave that power to the Federal government.

    But you'll never convince a self-described "libertarian" that their interpretation of the Constitution is wrong.

    But wasn't the tenth amendment originated at the federal government?

    Re: Mississippi just got around to ratifying the 13th Amendment.

    It's no coincidence that the redder the state the more obtuse it is morally, intellectually and politically.

Mississippi voted to ratify the amendment in 1995 but failed to make it official by notifying the U.S. Archivist.

    Waiting until 1995 was funny enough but 2013 made my day. Way too funny.
    Easy now. You can't just rush into a big decission like this. You have to take your time and make sure you cross the T's and dot the I's.

    How could I have not read the post since I replied to it?

    I would love to know what the Tenth Amendment has to do with the Thirteenth Amendment?

    One is state rights to self-legislate and the other is slavery.

    If you're willing I'm willing to debate both and show that both are entirely different ideas, not only that but I can elaborate on how and illustrate the background and reasoning behind the manifested ideas.

    No, everything after the Tenth Amendment violates the Bill of Rights... None of it is legal.

    State rights are supreme - if those liberties weren't, then the Tenth Amendment wouldn't exist.

    I guess Mississippi isn't the only thing that is backwards on this thread! Or maybe Nick cannot read.
