The authors of the Fourteenth Amendment were clear that the United States is one nation, with one class of citizens, and that citizenship extends to everyone born here.

“It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties,” James Madison wrote in 1785. President Donald Trump confirmed Tuesday that he plans to move from experimentation on liberty into widespread application of the tyrant’s playbook.

Nothing new here and of course we all agree. I just like the shot of the Constitution. written as it was in exquisite longhand; and recalling how even 70 years ago, "penmanship" was on its way out, due to the typewrite and print etc. Mine was a hopelessly illegible scrawl, only tolerated because I was quite the little smartypants, so I was thrilled when my older brother left for Yale and left ME his Remington, which must have weighed 50 pounds. Without it, I doubt seriously if Harvard or anywhere else would have had much use for me.

It seems to me, regarding the issue of citizenship, that Trump pulls one of these startling, sadistic numbers out of his hat whenever things get tough for Conservatism, which while it may have had some class in the past, is now irretrievably bonded with greed, bigotry, bullying, misogyny, lies,and most recently, Nationalism.
