    I would qualify the Second Amendment to mean any infantry-style arms and that it applies to all Americans, not just to the "militia." Also, include the word "digital information" along with persons, houses, papers, and effects in the Fourth Amendment.

    None. They are all valid.

    Does that mean that we should also improve torture techniques? Part of the danger of relying on chemicals to seek out the "truth" is that chemicals can also be used the same way torture was once used...to gain a false confession of guilt. No one that wants actual truth would ever rely on chemicals, particularly when you combine the human element of greed and power into the mix.

    The 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the dangerous misinterpretation of the birthright citizenship clause - DA King - the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution - Fourteenth Amendment - anchor babies and birthright citizenship -
    Before its ratification in 1868, Michigan's Senator Jacob Howard, author of the citizenship clause, made the intent crystal clear to the Senate: "This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include all other classes of persons."
    This is the one change I would agree with. It absolutely had a purpose and it was not intended for anchor babies.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Re: Which Constitutional Amendments, if any, should be repealed?

    Yeah, I goofed in my vote, sorry. 16th and 17th should be repealed, states should elect senators and the prohibition on direct taxation and the income tax should be immediately reinstated.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I absolutely agree. The allowance of anchor babies to tie a foreigner to US subsidies is abominable.

    But, if arrested, they are not criminal. Our laws are designed to protect the innocent. Thinking that the accused should not have the right of silence and the right to not testify is to not understand the fundamental precepts of our criminal justice system.

    I went with the 17th. The people have the the House of Representatives. We now have too many unfunded mandates because the senators are no longer representatives of the state process.

    Protecting innocent rights do often hinder justice. However:

    Wow...

    Do you also believe in torture?

    Which means officers of law must tread carefully. Too often, innocent people look guilty. When assuming that, and and allowing them to be treated as criminals is a violation of rights.
