commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Another Rand Paul-ism……Birthright Citizenship?

Like someone said…..

The gift that keeps giving…..

The Media is having a ball digging up his past rants……

This from a past Russian media interview…..

From Politicalwire…….

Just because Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul (R) has sworn off national media doesn’t mean journalists can’t dig through his past statements and interviews. Think Progress found an interview with Russian television in which Paul said he opposes birthright citizenship, something the U.S. Constitution allows.

Said Paul: “We’re the only country I know of that allows people to come in illegally have a baby and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop also.”

Ben Smith: “But while the interview is hilarious and the position is certainly newsy, it should only be news to people who haven’t followed the race, and it’s a mark of how little attention Paul was paid before winning the nomination.”

  2. I think to accomplish this they will have to amend the Constitution

    Good politics to appeal to the racially challenged amonst us though

    Paul has made a conscious decision to go after this vote

  3. I wonder if the xenophobes will try to revive the old (and long-since judicially-settled) debates about whether the 14th Amendment

    [which as we all know, beginneth, “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”]

    was properly ratified by enough states, since many of them were under various forms of occupation or reconstruction, and since some of them had earlier rejected the amendment, or subsequently tried to withdraw their ratifications.
