“Constitution-Loving” Republicans Have Proposed 42 Amendments To Their Beloved Document
Democrats have proposed 27 amendments, but they’re usually not the ones running around calling themselves “constitutionalists.” Case-in-point is Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia.
Republican Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia won his seat in Congress campaigning as a strict defender of the Constitution. He carries a copy in his pocket and is particularly fond of invoking the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
But it turns out there are parts of the document he doesn’t care for — lots of them. He wants to get rid of the language about birthright citizenship, federal income taxes and direct election of senators, among others. He would add plenty of stuff, including explicitly authorizing castration as punishment for child rapists.Click here for reuse options!
