"Progressives aren't really progressive. They're regressive, all the way back to Sodom and Gomorrah." - author unknown
"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Tell me how the law can force someone trade their property to another person and not violate the fourteenth amendment.
I find it sad that the court was trying to argue that it didn't violate the thirteenth amendment, which it does, by trying to argue that it is permitted due to the fourteenth amendment when it's not. In fact, it violates both amendments, but the courts are too slow to realize what the word deprive means or what forced commerce means.
