What is the number of the Amendment that allows the government to give welfare, foodstamps, obamaphones, racial hiring preferences and the like to these ex-slave descendants? Because that is the most important thing when said descendants decide for whom they will vote. Those other Amendments are so far in the past they do not mean anything to them today.

like any existing law, the US Constitution is worthless if the citizen fails to enforce his or her rights under the law and the US Constitution. The freedoms we all enjoy have been bought and paid for in blood. it may just turn out that maintaining those freedoms for all of us may cost more blood as time goes on. government employees and officials must never forget that they are US citizens first and they must be held accountable under the law for all their actions good or bad.
