"Well taken" eh? Guess what? You're therefore in the same corrupt company as the group of "Justices" that decided US v. Wong Kim Ark:
We have George Shiras, a prominent (drum roll please) railroad lawyer with no prior judicial experience and friend to corporate railroad barons with a rather keen interest in retaining Chinese coolies. Kinda reminds you of something rather more contemporary, doesn't it?
We have Horace Gray, author of the majority opinion, a buddy of Brandeis, Holmes, and other noted court activists and a big fan of paper money.
We have Yalie David Brewer, founder of the American Society of International Law, peace advocate, and judicial activist toward using the court to supersede State laws.
We have Yalie Henry Brown, author of Plessy v. Ferguson!!!, and a huge fan of the use of Admiralty Law as a regulatory means (even though he hired a substitute to serve in the military for him in the Civil War).
That puts you in company with the ideological left. Congratulations. Wear it with pride.
Nonsense. The left wants the same thing you do - making it so that citizenship is whatever the state says it is. Comrade - you should toe the line. It would be a sad thing if anything happened to your papers...
Birthright strips away all those shenanigans. You’re born here? You’re an American.
“In other words, this case was not decided on compassion; it was about MONEY, cheap labor for the owners of the largest corporations of their day. They diluted the principle of citizenship to its virtually meaningless level today. “
Good job! IT IS ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY...just as it likely is for anyone trying to defend ‘squat and drop citizenship.
