  •  unless its already been ratified (0+ / 0-)

    I would think that the ratification of existing, ratified amendments is considered automatic upon entering the union.

    All we are saying, is give it an UPPERDOWNVOTE!!!!

    •  Yeah, I was talking about the magical time (0+ / 0-)

      when we were still adding states.

      As the rebuttal link I gave, which Dhonig seems to glossed right over, it notes that 3 states were added while Virginia twiddled it's thumbs, and how there was a war too.

      So one of the incoming states would have had to ratify it as well. Which makes its inclusion all the way up to 1868 even wilder!

      -4.63 -5.28 - Ghandi & I's score!
