Dear Rand Paul

Dear Rand Paul,

Listen to this at 9:30.  Before we all "follow the Constitution" maybe you should "read the Constitution".  The 14th Amendment Section 1 reads: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

As a strict constructionists, who believes the Constitution should be followed exactly as written, you can't go picking and choosing which Amendments "count" and which ones need to be changed.  That would be the job of the Judicial Branch of government.  You'd think someone that has absolute respect for the Constitution would have at least some understanding of the document.
