Am I the only one who thinks that the 14th amendment needs to go? by Q: I'm pretty sure that every slave who was freed is a citizen now, so there's really no point in it anymore. At this point in time, I feel like it's just a benefit for illegal immigrants. What do you think?

A: I'm sure you're not the only one who thinks that, and I'm sure that all of you need to re-think your positions. Are you seriously suggesting that the entire 14th Amendment -- not just the first sentence but all of the rest of the longest amendment ever adopted -- should be repealed? I say that Section 1 needs to be: 1) Repealed, 2) Re-written, 3) Replaced.

What would it take to repeal an amendment? Or at least modify one? by Skylar L Q: I'm trying to write a novel that involves a modification of the eighth amendment, concerning mostly the "no cruel or unusual punishment" part. I need to find a way around it in order for the storyline to work. So my question is, how does an amendment get modified or repealed? Is there voting that goes on? If so, who votes? Representitives? I'm really bad at politics lol. Please helpXD

A: It tells you in the constitution. Go read it.

Is it offensive when people ignore the 1st Amendment and try to say your country belongs to one religion? by Francesca Q: The whole point of this country was that it did NOT belong to any particular religion. The key founding fathers were Deists or Unitarians, and they knew how horrible the religious wars had been in Europe. History is neato.

A: @Metal, if you think Jefferson wasn't a Deist, then you'll *love* reading the Jefferson Bible.

How do the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses in the First Amendment conflict with one another? by acoustic_child Q: Question basically says it all. If you know any Supreme Court cases I should look at, that would be helpful too.

When is this country going to pass an amendment defining marrage as one man & woman? by The all knowing Rush Limbaugh Q: Once Obama is out, we have the political leverage. The majority of Americans are clearly against this perversion. Thanks in advance for your answers. God bless.

A: All we need to do is petition for a Constitutional Convention. That'll panic congress into passing one PDQ to prevent everything from going up for grabs!

The Second Amendment is an individual right, not a collective one reserved for the militia? by Q: So can someone please tell me why some people think it's a collective right reserved for a militia? How are you supposed to have a well organized militia if you can't have guns or carry them with you?

A: Because they are ignorant or fools. They have not read the preamble to the Bill of Rights. Some will claim that it is illegal to carry openly, even though it is legal in 43 states. Some will claim that "the people" in the Second Amendment doesn't mean ALL the people, even though "the people" means ALL the people in the other amendments where it is used. These same people will also claim that the Second Amendment was written to protect the ability to form a militia, even though that is already protected in the main body of the Constitution. Some will claim that the Second only protects the technology of the day, muskets and swords, which would mean that the rest of the Bill of Rights only protects the technology of the day, and the government can download the hard drive of your computer or tap your phone any time they want, and censor what you say to a radio station. There are those who claim that you can only bear arms in a militia, or that "bear arms" is synonymous with "render militiary service" and "militia duty", despite the fact that in the early 1800's the United States Supreme Court defined the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as being able "to keep and carry arms wherever they went". That was also ruled as one of the defining rights of a free citizen. The Founders defined it as an individual right, Tench Coxe quotes: Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as military forces, which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. John Smilie warned: "Congress may give us a select militia which will, in fact, be a standing army-or Congress, afraid of a general militia, may say there shall be no militia at all. When a select militia is formed; the people in general may be disarmed." That select militia has been formed, and is a part of the standing Army, it is called The National Guard.

PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEIR FACTS HELP: How does one propose a new amendment to the Constitution? by kristin Q: Essentially what is the procedure? I am not asking how the Amendment is passed nor an answer like "write a letter to your senater"..what is the actual procedure

A: Let us use the ERA as an example Representative Martha W. Griffiths of Michigan achieved success on Capitol Hill with her House Joint Resolution No. 208, which was adopted by the House on October 12, 1971, with a vote of 354 yeas, 24 nays and 51 not voting. Griffiths' joint resolution was then adopted by the Senate on March 22, 1972, with a vote of 84 yeas, 8 nays and 7 not voting. With that, the ERA was finally presented by the 92nd Congress to the state legislatures for ratification, as Article V of the Constitution prescribes, with a seven-year deadline for ratification by the required three-quarters of the legislatures (38 legislatures).

If you are divorced in one state can you file an amendment to alimony in the state you have moved to? by Q: I now live in a different state than my ex wife and need to amend the alimony payments..Do I have to go back to the state where we were divorced or can I file in the state where I now reside ?

If you could add one amendment to the United States Constitution, what would you add? by Chatrocat T Q: And why would you want to add it? I've always been curious about things like this. Thanks for your opinions.

A: No Democrapt shall ever be elected to public office ever again.

Will the United States ever pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage between one man and one woman? by Q: Should Christian ideology be the criteria for making decisions on social issues in America? I hope they never do. Most religious people are incapable of independent thought and they use this "ideology" to promote a bigotry they would otherwise have anyways.

A: I don't think it will ever happen. The trend for the last 40 years or so has been towards more and more acceptance of gays. This trend is irreversible, but cynical politicians will use the threat of 'the gay agenda' to get votes. This has been going on for some time now, but with less and less effectiveness over time. California's courts overturned Prop 8, banning gay marriage. The Republicans and the Christian Right could have appealed all the way up to the US Supreme Court. But they chose not to because they don't believe they can win. The case was based on gay marriage presenting a 'danger' to regular marriage, and though this idea is at the center of anti-gay sentiment in the US, the anti-gay marriage forces were unable to show the court just how allowing gays to marry is a danger. Actually they didn't even try. Anti-gay sentiment is not really a legitimate part of Christian ideology. It's using Christianity as a cover for intolerance and fear. Something the Republicans, and the spiritual leaders they've corrupted to help them, have been doing for years.

How was the Fourteenth amendment one of the most important additions to the constitution ? by Budfiend Q:

A: It secured the rights of former slaves. The Fourteenth Amendment gave them citizenship and equal protection under the law.

Can the gay community propose an amendment to ban Traditional marriage between one man and one woman? by ForeverFREE Q: Just to be fair and let the voters decide. I feel bad for them Will they be able to get hospital visitation rights with prop 8 ?

A: NO No one stops them from visiting in the hospital. A lot of my family is in health-care...no one tells them they can't come in the room.

How would one plead the 5th Amendment? by Cinnomin Q: I am being summoned to court and I wish not to testify. I would like to plead the 5th Amendment, and I need to know how I would go about doing so. I am a witness/victim for the Prosecuting Attorney's Office... And I want no part in this Trial...

A: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/data/const...

Why is no one - not even the NRA - defending the 2nd Amendment anymore? by Q: The 2nd amendment is there so the people are armed sufficiently to keep the government honest. But it is illegal to buy military grade weaponry/vehicles. I love my guns but they will not scare anyone in a tank. Under the 2nd amendment shouldnt civilians be allowed to buy military grade weapons?

A: It is generally accepted that the 2nd amendment covers rifles and pistols. There aren't too many people who can afford a stealth bomber or drone plane. There have to be reasonable limits or we would have to give individuals access to atomic bombs. Likewise, pea-shooters and slingshots would not satisfy our right to bear arms. With guerrilla type warfare, a significant resistance can be mounted with plain semi-automatic rifles and etc.. The Vietcong handed us our butts with relatively primitive weapons.

Alcohol was banned by a constitutional amendment; why have other substances been banned without one? by Q: If a constitutional amendment was required to ban and subsequently un-ban alcohol, why isn't this serving as a precedent for marijuana and other "controlled substances" EDIT: I am talking purely about US FEDERAL LAW, not state, county, or local laws.

A: Drugs are legal in America, as long as your drug of choice is the liquid variety. On the plus side, I get a kick out of "conservatives" who wail that they want government off our backs and then have a hissy fit when you suggest that maybe, just maybe, it's time for government to stop passing law after law governing how citizens conduct their private lives.

Which of the following is one way an amendment to the Constitution may be proposed? by 419Original Q: the options are: A) Congress proposes an amendment by a two-thirds vote in both houses. B) Congress proposes an amendment by a majority vote. C) The President declares an amendment be added to the Constitution. D) At least 100 U.S. citizens sign a petition to add an amendment to the Constitution. HELP IS NEEDED

A: The Answer is 'A.' Following the passage by the Congress, the measure goes to the various state legislatures where a 3/4 majority is needed to pass the amendment.

How can one support a balanced budget amendment? by kango reds fan Q: I support a balanced budget but there are times when balancing the budget isn't possible. FDR's budgets weren't balanced but that is because the times called for increased spending. Just because Congress has trouble balancing the budget now, why should we strip them of all power to to pass an unbalanced budget when sometimes its neccesary.

A: That is correct. States like Texas can have a balanced budget amendment and when they experience a natural disaster, such as a drought, the feds can step in and help. If the USA has a balanced budget amendment, we won't be able to help ourselves.

Filed an amendment for EIC on one of my children. Ex husband already claimed both for EIC. Will I get it? by Please Help Q: Been Divorced since 2009. Have two children. Since the divorce he has always claimed one child for tax exemption purposed and EIC. I have always claimed the other child. This year he claimed both for the EIC and I was only able to claim one for dependent. I have filed an amendment. Will I get the money back and will he have to pay back the EIC he has already gotten for the one child?

Which amendment is the one that's banning gay marriage in Florida? by Whitney Q: I hear it's amendment 2, but I'm not sure. I heard they make it really confusing for people on purpose to trick them, can someone tell me or possibly give me a link a website?

A: Florida's Amendment 2 says "This amendment protects marriage as the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife and provides that no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized" and deserves a vote of NO. A vote for Amendment 2 does more than deny marriage to same sex couples. The wording "no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized" also bans Civil Unions. A Florida newspaper article highlighted some consequences that could happen if Amendment 2 is passed. Attorneys General in Michigan, Kentucky, Idaho and Nebraska have ruled that the same type of language in Florida’s Amendment 2 requires states to deny health insurance to the domestic partners and children of public employees. And if health insurance can be denied, so could hospital visitation to people who are not recognized as family members. The ability to make medical decisions for a loved one in case of a catastrophic accident or incapacitating illness could be denied to a person who is not a family member. Even the right to make funeral arrangements for a partner of several decades could be denied. The language of proposed Amendment 2 could be (and has been) read to require the state to treat an unmarried couple as legal strangers, regardless of how many years they have been together.

If corporations are people, isn't owning one unconstitutional under the 13th amendment? by Q: Are CEO's and stock holders, slave owners? I can't understand why would one call a thing, a person. I mean there has to be Conservatives out there that see the insanity of this argument in calling corporation people.

A: You're correct. Which is why it's completely insane to call corporations people. I don't want to offend anyone by saying this but, I'll believe that corporations are people when Texas executes one.

Santorum Supporters: Do you believe the first amendment should be ignored in favor of one religion? by Bill Lumbergh Q: I am wondering if we are reaching a point in our history that the majority is ready to amend the first amendment.

A: No, I don't think many people believe that either.

In CAlifornia, can a court add charges by amendment by interlineation after one year in misdemeanor case? by orange Q: After a year, the court added more counts to cover new misdemeanor charges in California. Rule 473 (a) says you can't interlineate after 6 months past the statute expiration. Does civil procedure apply to criminal law also for interlineation? Does section 1009 allow new charges to be added after one year?

What does a picket sign look like? What would one for th 19th amendment (letting women vote) look like? by LilyKaz ℓιℓукαz lเlאкคz Q: I need to make a picket sign for the 19th amendment (letting women vote). But have no idea what a picket sign looks like and what to do. Please help.

A: its just a banner that people hold up to show what they are picketing for in this case it would read votes for women or something on those lines

Can some one please find and present the signatures of the delegates that signed the 16th amendment? by TheAwokenOne Q: Can anyone find the signatures for the 16th amendment? And I don't mean a list of "states" that signed, I want the names, or really the actuall signatures in digital format. An amendment requires signatures of 2/3 of both houses to become an amendment. An amendment can also come into being by 2/3 of the states voting and ratifying it and presenting there documents to the congress. Can anyone answer my question by providing this all important documentation proving this is a real law? I am waiting.......

A: The amendment process does not require anybodies signature.

If the enforcement of a law inadvertently abridges one's 14th Amendment rights, is that law unconstitutional? by googoogaga Q: I recently learned of a rather arcane law currently in force, which basically gives far greater protection and privileges under the law to one segment of the population over another, albeit in highly unusual yet plausible circumstances - I know of one such person who happens to fall into this category. Furthermore, it appears that no similar law (such as the arcane law), exists which would effectively give the "underprivileged" segment of the population the same rights/protection as those protected by the arcane law. Thanks in advance.

A: Since you give no clue as to what this law is, does, or how its enforcement would disenfranchise another group it's impossible to answer your question.

How did the 18th Amendment violate one of the amendments in the Bill of Rights? by Q: I'm not sure which one it violates.

A: You could say it limited the 1st amendment as consuming alcohol could be considered a first amendment (Freedom of speech) right. An amendment cannot 'violate' the constitution since it is an addition to the constitution.

How does one use their 5th Amendment right in court? by pussycat vs. kitty Q: Per adventure a young woman is in court and she's being asked about a burglary and she identifies the defendant. Let's say the Defense Attorney wants to use a few side tracking strategies and asking about the nature of the relationship between the witness and the defendant and he asks if they have been "intimate" can the witness at that point say I choose to use my 5th amendment right.

A: Pleading the 5th means you don't have to self-incriminate yourself. If you were asked if you were an accomplice in the burglary you could plead the 5th. If you are asked about your intimate relationship, that would not fall under the 5th amendment and you could refuse to answer, but the judge can force you to answer.

Why is no one looking at healthcare reform's obvious opposition to the 10th amendment? by Q: The 10th amendment to the Bill of Rights says that all issues not covered by the Constitution go to the state government. That is why things like education are in your state constitution. Healthcare is not in the Constitution. Why isn't anyone mentioning this?

A: Because liberals are stupid.

Is there one Supreme court case that involved a violation of the 1st amendment? by Justin N Q: Im trying to find a case where the 1st amendment is violated. Please supply me with a link and give a brief summary on the case. Thanks guys.

A: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=supreme+court+1st+amendment

Why are limits on the 2nd Amendment acceptable but no one would support limits on free speech or due process? by sound_of_the_silenced2 Q: Why is it okay for limits to be placed on the 2nd, but no other Amendment in the bill of rights?

A: AMEN AMEN AMEN I do not have a permit, and I carry. The 2nd Amendment is the ONLY "permit" I will acknowledge. The Constitution is the ONLY "permit" the law should recognize. The Constitution is CLEAR. A State may NOT pass a law that supersedes the Constitution. The constitution states that the CITIZEN has the right to OWN AND BEAR arms, and that the right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

Amendment 18 of the constitution prohibited liquor, which one prohibits cannabis? by Joe Blough Q: And, congress didn't declare the war on drugs, which is a separate police action from regular crime. With a separate set of laws, regulations, penalties, and policies. Nowhere in the constitution does it give the government power to outlaw a plant. And, seeing there's no amendment giving them that power, how can they enforce unconstitutional laws as effectual?

What is one suffrage amendment ratified during the 20th century? by ...... Q: Is one, the women's right to vote?

A: You already knew the answer Hanna - and so do the people above. That amendment was LONG overdue in this man's opinion. The delay in allowing women to vote has throughout history been a disgrace to men virtually everywhere. In France, the birthplace of Liberty, women could not vote until the end pf World War Two!

Amendment One in NC? Explain? by Q: Can someone please explain to me in legal terms how amendment one will strip children of health care and take protection away from battery victims? I understand that people in "non-married" relationships will be affected, but a child is still the blood relative of both parties, married or not, and a battered woman is still the victim of assault, regardless of martial status with her partner. I'm not really trying to make a point, I'm just trying to understand this, sincerely. I just feel that some of the points made by opposers of the amendment are overreaching as I understand it. Help?

What's your favorite amendment (and least favorite if you have one) in the Bill of Rights? by A Tiny Ripple Q: More specifically what is your favorite amendment besides the 1st and 2nd (by far the most popular ones). For me its the 9th. Not a huge fan of the 2nd and 10th (or more specifically how they've been implemented in today's society).

A: For me, I'd say the 4th amendment. I don't need big brother watching me. And by an extension, the 3rd as well.

This is a new one: Rick Perry wants to overturn the 17th amendment. What's the motive? by Q: The 17th amendment allows the rabble to elect senators directly; Rick Perry thinks this needs to be abolished. This one is new to me; I don't know what the motive is? Is it simply to ensure the needs and aspirations of the dirty unwashed masses don't infect government too much and keep politics a rich kids club?

A: What's the motive? Nothing good. Do some research on Rick Perry and the state of Texas during his tenure.

The formal amendment process is one means by which the Constitution can be changed.? by G Money Q: 2.The formal amendment process is one means by which the Constitution can be changed. However, other means of constitutional change exist as well. Write an essay in which you (1) explain the various means of formal change and discuss some of the problems associated with them,; (2) indicate what the formal amendment process has achieved; and (3) discuss some of the other means of constitutional change and how they have been developed. Cite relevant examples.

A: When I finish with your request can you tell me the difference between a silent and a loud fart?

If the 100th amendment of the US Constitution was appealed, would the next one be the 100th or the 101st? by Q: Do you see what I mean? I understand that we don't have 100 amendments. I'm just illustrating a point. So when an amendment is repealed, does another take its place or be the next one?

A: The next would be the 101st. The 18th Amendment was repealed, but it is still the 18th Amendment.

Why do some people think that second amendment is the only one that can be touched? by catchup Q: Why do some people think that second amendment is the only one that needs to be changed and everything else can not be touched?

A: The Second Amendment may get debated a lot (What does "militia" mean?) but it'll be all right. What you have to watch out for is the devil among the details. City ordinances extorting more sales tax for firearms, DC-style bans on owning firearms, etc. If you make it difficult enough for honest people to jump through hoops, only crooked ones will skip the hoops. I also think it'll be impossible to get rid of guns- too many people own too many guns. But this hot-button issue is a bit like the third rail - touch it and die. IMHO, you'll see very tiny planks in anyone's platform about gun ownership (maybe the pro-gun label) or gun control (the anti-gun label).

Why can't the Federal Government have a Balance Budget Amendment if many States already have one? by Q: All States except for VT has some form of balanced budget amendment. Why can't the Federal Govt have one?

A: Good point. Which is why several states have had to drop even essential services, cities have had to declare bankruptcy (because they can't get state funds), and so forth. I'm not saying that a BBA is a bad idea. But when you want to be THE leading nation, there really needs to be a mechanism to keep from "going out of business."

what is a current event that has to deal with one or more of the first 10 and the 14th amendment? by angelgurlxo Q: i have a school project and i need a current event that had to deal with one or more of the first 10 and 14th amendments. like when two school students were handing out candy canes with religious messages. the school said they couldn't do that so the kids took it to court. the court said that the school was wrong that they were deaning the kids the 5th amendment.

A: As you know, the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution are called the Bill of Rights. The 14th amendment contains the due process clause. In a case called Mapp vs. Ohio the United States Supreme Court decided that the Bill of Rights was applicable to the states. Or at least certain parts of the Bill of Rights. I'll let you research that. But the important thing to remember is that the Bill of Rights is a list of things the government cannot do. Originally it was supposed to be applicable to the federal government and over time the question became whether or not states also had to comply with the Bill of Rights. Today, the rule is that the states must indeed comply with the first 10 amendments to the United States. They may grant more liberal rights than the 10 amendments set out, but they may not grant lesser rights. There might be a couple of cases that interest you. These are both recent. One involved Fred Phelps. He is a minister from Kansas who protested at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. He and members of his group held up signs that said God hates fags, and other incendiary types of comments. Local and state governments attempted to limit what Rev. Phelps was doing because it offered the families of the troops. The United States Supreme Court decided that the First Amendment and the due process clause gave Rev. Phelps and his group freedom of speech. Rev. Phelps had a First Amendment right to do his protesting. As the court noted. Free speech is not always pleasant. Another First Amendment case involved violent video games. The state of California passed a law that prevented the sale of violent video games to certain individuals. The court has to decide whether or not a game company can produce these types of games and distribute them. California is attempting to limit the manufacturers freedom to do so. You can find this case on the United States Supreme Court website, as well as the Phelps case. Civil rights cases that involve students and civil rights usually come down on the part of the school. The reason is that it's a balancing of rights. The school has to remain safe and orderly. You also have to understand that many of the students in the school are minors and minors generally are not regarded as having constitutional rights. That is a closer question when it comes to free speech. You might want to look at the case of Tinker vs. Des Moines. In that case students wore black armbands to protest the Vietnam War and the court upheld that. But generally, students do not do well in the Supreme Court. I hope this helps.

Write one paragraph about how the interpretations of the 14th Amendment have impacted the rights the workers,? by Q: Write one paragraph about how the interpretations of the 14th Amendment have impacted the rights the workers, handicapped persons and woman. I really done get what they are asking if you could at least write an out line or what to write about that would be amazing!! Thanks a bunch :)

A: it gave them more rights

Is it time to have a 28th Amendment to the Constitution, one that forces Congress to spend money it has? by Dreadlock Rasta Q: and not to keep borrowing? We need to keep ourselves solvent, and no one is actually keeping track of Congresses spending, other than themselves. The only way we the people can force them to not spend money they don't have is to force a Constitutional Amendment, forcing them to only spend money that they have, and if the money is not there, sorry can't borrow.

A: it's not just a balanced budget we need it's value for money on government spending they pay about 2-300% over regular price for just about everything, many invoices are paid by one department without any other department incurring the debt, also we need some way to control dishonesty in congress the founders sort of assumed everyone in government would be honest and love america not line their own pockets, unfortunately the only way I can think of doing that is to limit the number of terms that can be served like the president and increase the number in congress so that influence is not concentrated in a few, losing a few experienced congressmen would be a small price to pay for an honest congress

What are some statistics for amendment one NC? by Q: Im talking about voting "FOR" amendment one, as to keep the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. But i would like some help finding data to support the cause. Any and all help is welcome Thanks

A: Yu should really rethink tht....it doesnt not only effect gay and lesbian ppl..it also effects straight unmarried ppl and their children...google about amendment one to kno a lil more before yu vote for it...it will really hurt a lot of ppl

Place the 12th amendment into one of the following 5 categories? by Q: The 12th amendment basically changed the electoral college system so that instead casting two votes for president, they would cast one for president and one for vice-president. We have to do this for all the amendments but I'm stuck on this one. The categories are: *Popular Sovereignty *Limited Government *Federalism *Separation of Powers *Checks and Balances Thanks!

A: checks and balances

Describe the application and interpetation of amendment one by the supreme court? by superjakechan Q: Describe the application and interpetation of amendment one by the supreme court?

A: Capricious and ridiculous, respectively.

What is the one amendment in the original proposed Bill of Rights that has not been ratified? by Mutt Q: There were 12 amendments originally proposed. 10 were ratified as the Bill of Rights, and one was ratified over 200 years later as the 27 Amendment. Which one has not been ratified?

A: It's not very interesting, I'm afraid. The proposed amendment, which was the first of the twelve, was a technical amendment that pertained to the reapportionment of the United States House of Representatives following the census every ten years. This amendment, which was never ratified, is technically still pending the state legislatures' approval, but it never will be. In any case, since the first two of the twelve originally proposed amendments were not rights issues but issues pertaining to congress, only the last 10 were ever referred to as the "Bill of Rights."

All but one amendment was proposed by congress and ratified by what state entity? by ahlalalalala Q: which amendment is the question talking about? I found different answers everywhere. Yes, this is the correct question for a paper I have to write. It must be ONE.

The 14th Amendment is commonly referred to as one of the most important additions to the Constitution. Why? by Laura Q: The Fourteenth Amendment is commonly referred to as one of the most important additions to the Constitution. Why?

A: It was after the era of the Civil War, and during the era of the Gilded Age and era of southern Reconstruction that the 14th amendment was implicated. During these times, America went through one of it's greatest transitional periods of all the young country's history. Considering the 14th amendment was right smack in the middle of it, It's considered important, knowing that all of the good and meaningful things (that I'm not going to go into now) that this amendment brought were half the reason for this huge transitional period of the early 1900's.
