Opinion: Ditch the 14th Amendment? Why stop there?

Republicans such as Sens. Lindsey Graham, John Kyl and John Cornyn are tripping over themselves to jump on the latest "Dumb Way to Solve the Illegal Immigration Problem" bus by suggesting Congress examine repealing the 14th Amendment, which deals with one way of becoming a U.S. citizen.

Hmmm, for a minute there I thought this columnist was addressing the issue of SSM. After all, the 14th Amendment came into play when Prop. 8 was struck down earlier this week in California.

Nope. Just some more ridiculous garbage from the right. You know, those strict constructionists who now want to abolish the 14th amendment of the Constitution? Even freaking Lou Dobbs strongly disagrees with that, and his has been the most vocal about illegal immigration and border security. These people are so far out on the fringe, I can't help but be scared that they are in elite positions of power.

You'd be surprised how many of them want to see the entire constitution rewritten, Tables. Not so much as either changing the aforementioned amendments, but just rewriting them.



Our founding fathers wrote it, so really, it is best be left alone. I know they didn't know there wasn't be anything like a hotly-contested issue like SSM.

What is really stupid is that these guys are the ones that claim to want to keep the original Constitution in tact, strict constuctionists, yet they are the ones that have been trashing it over the last decade.

Chris Matthews (or maybe Ed Shultz) yesterday made that point adamantly clear on CNN yesterday.
