Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
That’s the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution outlawing slavery and involuntary servitude. Now I’m not surprised to see the Democrats try to bring back slavery or involuntary servitude since they are the party that created the KKK in order to suppress the black vote (See Creation). Democrats also ousted a Republican Louisiana Governor because he integrated black people into his administration, and Democrats killed over 300 black people in just a few days in Louisiana among many other things. I’m not shocked to see a Democrat propose bringing back slavery.
But from Barack Obama’s “Change.gov” website
“When you choose to serve — whether it’s your nation, your community or simply your neighborhood — you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans. That’s why it’s called the American dream.”
The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nation’s challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America,by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.
Um, requiring service? Look, I know during times of slavery, there were a lot of black people who would help capture and sell other blacks into slavery, and as Barack Obama would say, I mean think about it, wouldn’t that lineage still be from Africa? Now I’m not saying Obama’s father from Kenya is from that side of heritage. What I am saying is that I know Barack Obama doesn’t have a drop of slave blood, so he probably doesn’t understand this, but to require even one second of forced service is, um, UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
I’m not saying Barack Obama is the black guy in the house, and some neighborhoods might actually have a different term for it. But I have to admit, I never imagined in my wildest dreams that the first black President would actually be proposing to force some people to work in servitude, or rather, slavery.
