Democrats generally first try to tell me that each of their various government programs are constitutional. If I’m able to convince them that they’re not, they generally respond by telling me that it doesn’t matter – and that “times change.” They’ll sometimes call me backwards, or racist, but not really often.

Republicans generally first try to tell me that each of their various government programs are constitutional. It’s far less often that I’m able to convince them that they’re not. And generally, instead of researching or discussing, they just call me names, like “Libturd” or “Commie.”

Sometimes they’ll even suggest they hope that some terrorist from ISIS will come and kill me.

It’s not scientific, but that’s my general experience.

The Constitution and Birthright Citizenship

The short version is this: The first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment conveys U.S. citizenship on all persons “born … in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Obviously we are talking here about persons “born … in the United States.” Thus the children of illegal aliens are not U.S. citizens only if they are not “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States.
