Should voting rights be restricted to only landowners?

Should US Senators be elected by the state legislatures?

Should the 14th amendment be gutted in regards to birthright citizenship?

And, while we are at it, should we deny the right of eighteen year-olds to vote?

Apparently there are some in the TEA party who would like to do away with these rights.

Oh, and they would like to repeal the 16th amendment too.

And here I was, thinking it was safe to sit here drinking my tea. Guess I'll go put on a pot of coffee. Organic. Free Trade...of course.

Don't forget the repealing of the 13th amendment, that would solve the unemployment problem. Anyone out of work could be bought from the state government Look how many people could be own by the wealthy top 2 percent. The illegal alien problem would be solved overnight. We might even
have to open the borders to handle the demand. No need for medical or retirement money to be wasted. After all the unemployed are worthless
unless they can be had cheap. Remember it is a concept found in the Bible and seemingly approved of. The neoconservatives wish to roll back the clock
of cultural advancement to the GOOD OLD DAYS OR WE COULD EAT THEM. A suggestion proposed by Samuel Johnson

Thankyou for the info and approval of course this is somewhat tongue in cheek. But I cant understand what makes
some the the ultra right think the way they do. But I do have a theory that I might share later. Something I picked up on in college phycology class http:// the study of algae. Need I say more. Cheap play on words I love the Greek.

I understand the Sons of Confederate Veterans is sponsoring a 150th anniversary ball and encampment marking the succession of South Carolina from the Union at Ft Sumpter in April 2011. The SCV website states: The citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederacy personified the best qualities of America. The preservation of liberty and freedom was the motivating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution. The tenacity with which Confederate soldiers fought underscored their belief in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These attributes are the underpinning of our democratic society and represent the foundation on which this nation was built.

Anyone want to set their watches back 150 years?
