The illegal & disastrous Fourteenth Amendment

Dr Tom Woods on one of the Feds’ enabling acts
It was once well understood in conservative and libertarian circles that the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was never legally ratified. The amendment was forced upon the United States (after slavery had already been abolished with the Thirteenth Amendment) by the Radical Republicans over the strong resistance of the Southern States and other States worried about the implications of the obvious Federal power-grab. With all our other problems as far as unemployment, the wars, immigration, the growing police state and so on it would be easy to dismiss the topic of the Fourteenth Amendment. However, many of the issues that impact us most directly in our daily lives are related to the Fourteenth Amendment, especially concerning things such as the Federal Government’s social-engineering experiments and Federal intervention in housing, schooling and welfare. The Feds have even used to strike down State attempts to stop illegal immigration. The Fourteenth Amendment has a long history of being used by advocates of centralisation and increased government manipulation of society forms the excuse for much of our loss of local and State autonomy.
