14th Amendment

This is a very interesting article on the 14th amendment and the concept of incorporation by the courts. It's not short, but if you have any interest at all in the relationship between the federal government that that of the "several states", you won't be able to stop reading.

For example:

This means that not only have certain amendments from the Bill of Rights been selectively incorporated by the Supreme Court, but certain parts of amendments have likewise been incorporated. This results in three problems. One, how does anyone know what the law will be from one day to the next? Which part of which amendment will be the next to be incorporated? Two, this is not the rule of law; this is government on a whim. The Constitution means what five members of the Supreme Court say it means – the Congress, the state legislatures, and the people be damned. And three, the Supreme Court that has the power to incorporate has the same power to unincorporate.
The more I read, the most disturbed I find myself with the state of our government. The Founders are spinning in their graves.


Need I say more?
