Dred Scott and the 14th Amendment.

Someone needs to remind the teabaggers that trying to change the Constitution to restrict, rather than grant the rights to others in the country doesn't go over well.

I've heard rumor that some (R)'s also would like to push so that only those whose parents are both citizens (or whose fathers are citizens) would be permitted to keep their citizenship. Uh...my bio-dad is not and never will be a U.S. citizen. So you can probably imagine I have a problem with this and I really hope they are just rumors.

Though-it's not exactly easy to change the constitution. It may be a conservative wet dream to add an amendment defining marriage, but that still hasn't happened yet (and with Prop 8 being declared a no-go, I'm feeling pretty good that it won't). So now "illegal immigration" becomes the new hot topic du jour, since they've realized banning gay marriage is a losing battle.

But something tells me my face wasn't the one the conservatives had in mind when they came up with ideas like this.



[livejournal.com profile] glitch25 just asked me what the statute of limitations on this would be...how many generations would it go back? Because really, there's only one group of people who can claim that they deserve the land and I'm sure they'd like it back.
