Jeff, a mind of a body that looks like a child, of which only has one spirit is in said body that is of said mind, can use her or his voice to or a typewritten statement to claim in court that she or he had lived a previous life and therefore is an adult and therefore theoretically can provide consent, and can claim in court that she or he can provide consent if she or he received a conscious mind psychic message through time from a future version of herself or himself authorizing herself or himself to provide said consent.


The trouble is that you're trying to apply logic to the fundamentally illogical and circular.

They're just going to say that it doesn't matter. The legal guardian of the child isn't his previous self, it's his new parents.

Well, why should we go by the law rather than fact and reason? Because it's the law. That's all they have.

Unreasonable laws used to be declared void by the courts in the U.S. Probably some courts still do that.

Some good pertinent discussion of the 14th Amendment and what it was intended to do by those who wrote it...

Clearly it is a violation of the 14th.  All victimless crimes are a violation of the 14th amendment.  However, free speech?  That part doesn't make sense.

Hey kaz, Federal laws, that prohibit prostitution, violate Amendment 1 and thus those laws interfere with people's free speech right to spend as they please and interfere with people's right to peaceably assemble their bodies for sexual activities.

I'm a libertarian, prostitution should be legal between consenting adults. 

But banning prostitution is limiting "people's right to peaceably assemble their bodies for sexual activities?" 

Huh

The US constitution is being used to scam the people. It protects the 1% and the people have been propagandized into accepting it as sacred.

It's not! It's an outdated document that does much more harm to the people's wellbeing than good. And it's used to promote tyranny. The ridiculous extremes of the 2A is a great example of something that has far outlived it's usefulness.

Since the 1% pay 40% of the taxes (per the IRS), it's you spewing propaganda

Can you explain that comment?

The logical way to think of it is to understand that if 40% of taxes is paid by the 1% then that's an acknowledgment of the problem. The 1% are in control of 40% of the wealth of the country.

And the 1% represent the right of course!

Here's a basis on which to get to work!

More ignorance from you:

1)  Taxes are paid on income, not wealth

2)  While the 1% pay 40% of the taxes, they only earn 20% of the income

Ouch, went down like a negro you hung on a tree who tried to leave the leftist plantation ...
