    just admit they support the Dred Scott decision and
    would LOVE to see the 14th Amendment overturned; then 'all people of African descent' can be treated as property, or as their leader rush Limbaugh would prefer, 'sent back to Africa'.

    And Good Old Abe Lincoln is vomiting in his grave.

    How to fight the fascist right? Register people to vote.

    •  The Goopers do want the 14th amendment repealed (0+ / 0-)

      Rep. Duncan Hunter said he would support deporting U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants, adding that "it takes more than walking across the border to be an American citizen."

      The San Diego-area Republican congressman spoke Saturday at a video recorded tea party rally in Ramona. Hunter was asked by someone in the crowd if he backed deporting natural-born American citizens who are the children of illegal immigrants.

      "I would have to, yes," Hunter said.

      Hunter said in the video that some of his critics believe his stance is mean-spirited.

      "And we're not being mean. We're just saying it takes more than walking across the border to become an American citizen," he said. "It's what's in our souls."

      The 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizenship to all persons born in the United States.
