Article II, Section IEdit

"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

This does not say that the President has to be born in America, merely, that he must be "natural born." Anyone, except a clone, who is above the required age, a citizen and a long term resident should be a potential President.

Amendment IEdit

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

All censorship, except the prohibition of a religion produced by the government, is, explicitly, unconstitutional. This amendment is unambiguous.

Amendment IIEdit

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This, however, is vague and poorly written. It, either, allows the existence of a militia or the right to have arms. What, specifically, are arms: Guns, swords Nuclear weapons or other things? Conservatives claim that the first amendment is vague and the second is clear but the opposite is true.

Amendment XIIIEdit

"1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

A disturbing loophole: Slavery is permitted as a punishment for a crime. This amendment does not even specify the crimes that can be punished with slavery.

If the culture in the Unites States ever changes reintroducing slavery for trivial crimes may be easy. Such a culture change is inconceivable now. Will it be inconceivable in fifty years? In a hundred years? Ever?

Amendment XXIEdit

"The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

liquor cannot, legally, be transported between states or other American lands.
