    the 14th amendment says no state shall .......there is no citizen or business mentioned at all.

    how come the government does not go to jail for committing unconditional acts?...........by what you are proposing citizens can be imprisoned.... but government is immune.

    your not following constitutional law......

    Again, keep reading. Read about their intent. Read about the civil rights movement. Don't just stop. You miss a lot that way.

    Ok, but the only restriction we are talking about is discrimination. If you are not arguing that removing those laws creates anarchy, then refuting the idea of "being free to do anything" is an irrelevant strawman.

    No, it was to highlight the need more than basic laws.

    Ok, great. But were are not talking about all the other laws that are more than basic. We are just talking about those regarding discrimination on private property. So anything not pertaining to that isn't relevant.

    It is if I'm trying to get you too how laws evolve. I've tried pointing directly to civil rights and specific court cases. I thought I'd try getting a little more general, as the specific was being paid attention to.

    Laws were born out of the civil rights movement. They used the 14th amendment, and courts backed them. You should know this.

    i know what the 14th amendment says, and it addresses only governments.

    the constitution does not limit people at all!
