Those who reject abiding by the intentions and beliefs under which our Constitution was agree to, as those intentions and beliefs may be documented from historical records, wish to remove the anchor and rudder of our constitutional system so they may then be free to “interpret” the Constitution to mean whatever they wish it to mean.
to make judgements based on the Constitution in its original intent

Don't tell that to Nwolfe35 who posted unsubstantiated assertions and insults, and then ran and is now hiding, and refusing to defend his posts.

Once again the Uneducated Canadian forgets the Constitution changes,

but the ONLY 2 ways the Constitution can be changed is

1. AMENDEDMENT
2. CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.

The reason that who is considered a citizen has changed is the constitution was amended 14th to be specific.

And, the 14th Amendment, along with its documented legislative intent, is very clear as to who is and who is not a citizen of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. But don't tell that to Nwolfe35 who seems to think judges and Justices are free to make the Constitution to comply to their personal whims and fancies.

"The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges' views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice." -- Justice Hugo L. Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968
