Rand Paul to abolish Section 1 of 14th Amendment, ending birthright citizenship

Recently I have detailed the relationship that Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky and State Senator Russel Pearce of Arizona have with their Neo Nazi, white supremacist supporters.

That is why it was no surprise to me to learn today that Rand Paul told a Russian journalist that he opposes birth citizenship as protected under the 14th Amendment, or, as Russel Pearce calls it “anchor babies”.

   We’re the only country I know of that allows people to come in illegally have a baby and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop also.


Yeah, that’s called the Section 1 of the 14th Amendment

More below the fold.

Now isn’t that odd? I point out how Rand Paul and Russell Pearce each have a history of being supported by and palling around with Nazi White Supremacists, and then only one week after Russell Pearce proposes an Arizona law to strip birthright citizenship from citizens of Arizona, Rand Paul comes up with the same idea!

Hmmmm, isn’t that convenient?

Anyone recognize this? It is Section 1 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


Cause he loves America and the Constitution sooo much, Rand Paul is willing to re-write the Constitution that he loves in order to expel people who are currently US citizens under the much beloved Constitution. The same Constitution which is often ignored and re written in their Conservative daydreams when it suits the political goals of Conservatives who want to disenfranchise American citizens, or strip them of their rights, or torture them.

Yeah, freedom, and stuff.

   No one would be crazy enough to suggest that the US use expensive satellite technology and black helicopters on demand to keep out illegal immigrants. That wouldn’t be fiscally conservative, would it? Hell, it would be downright crazy!

Which means it’s right up Rand Paul’s alley

    I recently have been talking more about satellite observation. They say you can sit in front of the store here and a satellite can read the headline on your newspaper. So I think you could also monitor your border with satellites, and then you just have to have some means of intercepting people who come in illegally. You could have helicopters stations positioned every couple of hundred miles. . .

Rand Paul

   Watch the full interview here . . .

So, Rand Paul has is supported by Nazis and White Supremacists, just like Russell Pearce, and then Rand Paul proposes a policy idea that is EXACTLY like the one Russell Pearce came up with, and they are both inherently race based and Unconstitutional.

  We CAN NOT let this loon into the Senate!

  If you can, give a bit to Jack Conway, Rand Paul’s Democratic Opponent for the Senate. If you love the 14th Amendment and the Constitution the way it is you should fight like hell to elect Jack Conway and keep Rand Paul out of the Senate.

  1. if Conservatives love it as much as they say they do why do they keep trying to get rid of the parts they don’t like?

    Because they aren’t patriots at all. Many of them are Hatriots

  2. 1.  To abolish corporate personhood

    2.  To establish a Federal Election Financing System and ban all corporate contributions to political and individual limits to be enacted by law.  To allow laws making it a federal offense (money laundering) to donate to a political campaign using money provided for that purpose by any non-profit institution or corporation, and to ban institutional lobbying.

    3.  To establish an Equal Rights Amendment.

    4.  To abolish or reformulate the U.S. Senate

    5.  To end the Electoral College and enact multi-party Democracy

    There is a way to do this which is the State Constitutional Convention methodology.  If the far right wishes to have a Constitutional convention to discuss citizenship, I doubt that would go anywhere, because there is not near enough sentiment that abolishing citizenship for millions of people would be the right thing to do.

    So the Paulistas want to change the Constitution?  Really?  They should be careful what they wish for.  But they would never get such revisions through the Congress.  It is an idle threat.  However, if they wish to have a Constitutional Convention of the states, this could go anywhere, and, I would agree, there are lots of areas in which our Constitution desperately needs revision, just not the 14th Amendment.

  3. Poor BP.

    Poor little BP.

    Gonna Cry.

  4. Look, the dude is an idiot, but change the Constitution he shall not.

    I always read your stuff when it appears where I float by, but my man, you are getting a bit shill here.

    Btw, why did Conway take that money from the old folks homes so Kentucky would do away with the rating systems there as hide the abuse of our elder?

    Why does Conway promote the abuse of the elderly for the corporations’ bottom line?

  5. why do the progressives hate the Paul family?

    Rand is an idiot, I will grant you that.

    But Obama had his Reverend Wright who said white people clap like this y’all.

    And for the record, I heard ol’ Rand just hired Jesse so that dude should finish off whatever campaign Rand had left.

    If you don’t go easy on him, this pony will stop giving you delight well before November, then all of Conway’s ethics problems might come to light.
