    Bzzzzt wrong!

    When the Constitution is amended, it changes. That's it. Because the 13th Amendment is an Amendment to the Constitution, it changes the document. That is why there is a provision to amend it in the original, so that these things can be written into the Constitution. The 13th and all other Amendments are Constitutional because they are part of the Constitution, and therefore legal.

    The 10th Amendment is not the supreme Amendment, and it does not prevent any other Amendments from being written in. It does prevent the Federal government from usurping state powers except as otherwise Constitutionally given to the Federal government. However, when an Amendment is passed and goes through the whole process, what the Amendment regulates is now written into the Constitution. If it gives more power to the Feds, then the 10th does not apply because those powers are now Constitutionally given to the Federal Government.

    You went from that to building voter farms and destroying black families by implementing policies that enabled generational dependence and decades of poverty crime and misery.

    Because a democrat by any other name is still a democrat so be careful who you call racist.
    What a load. Should we hold the Republican party responsible for every position they've ever taken historically?

    3. Republicans who stick to the party because of the name, regardless the level of damage the party caused the nation, are not to be admired. After W, the GOP deserved to be thrown out of office.
    Are you afflicted with something ?

    I told you that a Democrat by any other name is still a Democrat.

    Democrats fillibustered the 1964 civil rights act, not the "GOP" so listen up.

    NO you guys havn't changed a bit. You accuse people of racism and back policies that hurt blacks the most.

    Your'e so full of ****.

    Whats the unemployment rate currently for blacks ? Blacks under 30 ? Whats the dependence rate ? Whats the rate of blacks children born without a father in the home or to a single parent ?

    You havnt changed a thing. Exept your sides pathetic historical revision of Lincolns administration.

    Your'e still Dixie Crats through and through. Youve just hung up the white hoods temporarilly and replaced them with voter farms.

    Its pretty desperate when all you have is false accusations of racism to rest your hat on.

    Your'e willing to hold them responsible for things their not responsible for so why wouldn't you ?

    Again.....the policies of the Dixie Crats haven't changed a bit so those historical racist Democrat ways are in full effect currently as you guys do everything in your power to create a dependent class.

    Go ahead and give me the current unemployment rate and percentage of black children born to single mothers.

    Welfare is just a new age form of slavery when you pass laws that perpetuate it from generation to generation.

    Your'e still doing it so Ef-off with your racist accusations when in all reality a free and equal class of blacks with a strong family bond is your worst nightmare.

    Obama ran food stamp adds on Mexican TV stations. I wonder why?

    Unlike you, I'm not making accusations of racism. I'm merely stating that holding the Democrats responsible for their past and saying it's still true now...in the 1860s a REPUBLICAN suspended habeas corpus, and he was supported by his party. This same President supported the idea of sending all the black people back to Africa. Are these still positions held by the Republican party?

    Of course not. I get it, you're a Republican so anything the Democratic party does is automatically the root of all evil. It's interesting that these welfare policies have been in place for 50 years, yet the Republicans never made a concerted effort to repeal them.

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.


    FINALLY !!!

    I was getting tired of showing my papers every time I went there to visit my kin folks.

    And you're thinking very wrong, too. Who cares about the facts as long as you get a chance to push a falshood, that stereotypes people you hate. Right?

    No, I'm a Conservative and will call out the Rebuplicans for their nonsense just as fast as I'll call out Democrats.

    The criticism is comming from the left. The unfair criticism that attepts to broad brush the Cons AND Republicans as racist.

    I do not suffer fools well and will simply offer up honest factual information to stop the progressive lie in its tracks.

    It would appear that their defense has been condensed down to the lower common denominator by necessity alone.

    The absolute most insidiously racist place I've ever spent time is Boston, Massachusetts. Bastion of liberalism, and a white person won't look a black person in the eye. Institutionalized racism at its ugliest core.

    Yet, you walk into a restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi, and you see blacks and whites sitting at the table everywhere. They're just not so uptight and overly sensitive that they can't tell a black/white joke among each other and chuckle together.
