The 13th Amendment did not abolish Noblity

The 13th Amendment would disallow duel citizenship, or special interests from other countries to engage in our political practices on their behalf. A worthy goal.

The constitution does not allow titles of nobility to be given by the United States, to do so would place someone lower than a King, which we all are. To have a title of nobility in Britain would not have any effect on status in the United States, they are still simply a person of highest authority in their own right.

Article I, Section 9, Clause 8:

No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.

People tend to forget the governments place is below the people, holding a government position and you will LOSE your rights as a person, you become a representative of us. We are in the mindset of the government being a higher power once someone takes office, it isn't and never was meant to be. They instituted a power WEAKER than us.

You are looking at what they enacted as if they assumed the state was superior, in your eyes, of a so called greater power, but we were intrusted to keep the government in its place, will you step up and stop it? or will you cower in fear and blame those who came before us?
