You conveniently ignored the 13th amendment.
Seriously, if you wish to debate something, it would be helpful if you were at least educated on the subject.
Try actually reading it, then cmon back and try again.
Wow, you're honestly a horrible person. If it wasn't for "poor people", there wouldn't be civil rights and other amazing social feats accomplished in society.

Let me get this straight. You say if any law is unconstitutional then it has no place in America right? Give me a good reason why then.
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

Plunder is plunder and it does not become any more moral simply because legislatures declared it "legal". "Universal health care" sold as an insurance scheme is no more health care than auto insurance is accident prevention. All insurance schemes are legalized forms of gambling, and while I am of the firm belief people have the right to gamble, they do not have the right to force all people to gamble with them.
