The government says that unemployment is at 9.6%. The so called experts put it at 15%. But most of us know that the actual number is closer to 30%. The government will admit that 13 million of our desperately needed jobs are being worked by illegals from south of the border. They put the total number of illegals at only 15 million, when in reality it is closer to 30 million and growing exponentially, day by day.
Subsequently the issue of anchor babies has arisen again and is being discussed anew. The theory is if any foreign national can make it into the United States and deliver a baby, that baby is automatically given citizenship. This method has been used by many invading across our southern border to establish a toe hold (an anchor). Their wish is that every relative of that child should also be made a citizen.
This takes us to the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. It states, “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.”
Many people, including myself, believe that the 14th Amendment is unconstitutional, as it was never properly ratified. Upon the conclusion of the Civil War, President Lincoln declared that all states in secession were member states of the Union once again and that their elected representatives were recognized by the Congress.
The 14th Amendment was put forth for ratification on June 16, 1866. It had to be ratified with a three-fourths majority vote by March 24, 1868. It was not, as fifteen out of the thirty-seven states rejected it. President Andrew Johnson, using the reconstruction act as his authority, sent military governors into ten formerly Confederate states who gave ratification to the amendment. The problem is that, as I said earlier, President Lincoln had declared the former Confederate states solvent members of the Union, with elected representatives. And as the amendment had been rejected during the dates it was open for ratification, it would have had to been re-introduced before another attempt at ratification could be made. It was not.
The reason I denounce the 14th Amendment is that it tries to make me a subject of my government and I am not. I am the sovereign and my government is subject to me.
The original reason given to necessitate the 14th Amendment was that it would give citizenship to the children of former slaves. It was made clear at that time that it was only for the children of the former slaves as they were not foreign nationals.
The people streaming in from south of our border and having babies are foreign nationals and fall under international law, which says that no matter where a child is born that child is born under the nationality of his or her parents. This law was written long ago to insure that the children of English aristocrats, living in foreign countries were born British citizens. The illegals coming up from the south are just that, illegal, and should derive no benefit through a violation of our law.
The 14th Amendment does not give their anchor babies our rights, jobs, or access to the benefits of our safety nets. Like a friend who has brought someone undesirable into our house, we must tell our so called representatives to get them out. And if they don’t like it, they can go too.
President Obama, if you like the Mexican people so well, that you would put them above we the people of the United States, I suggest that you whip yourself up a new birth certificate and go down there and be their president. We don’t need you, so round up all your little ones, take them to Mexico, and go down in history as the mack daddy of the anchor babies.
