Ron Paul stumped by question on Constitution during Huckabee debate!Submitted by galtgulch on Mon, 12/05/2011 - 08:56
Ron Paul was asked if there were any Constitutional amendments that he would want to repeal.
Believe it or not, all he thought of was Prohibition, said it was already repealed, and that his focus was on Article 1 Section 8 and the Bill of Rights.
What did not occur to him for some reason was the Sixteenth Income Tax amendment which counteracted the Article 1 Section 9 prohibition on the Congress to tax the citizens of the States directly.
Also he did not think of the Seventeenth which called for popular vote instead of appointment of U.S. Senators by the state legislators.
He really should have been prepared for that question without having to fumble.
Still there is plenty of time and it is evident that when people are enlightened about him they flock to him and never leave!
