United States, KEV, United States Indians discussed on Lee Mathews



So at best it would force a court battle to clearly interpret the fourteenth amendment's. And to me that's at best at worst waste a lot of time and money. Those that are trying to interpret it for just like the same ones that are trying to interpret the second amendment that don't understand the right of the people keep us exactly same ones, you're saying.

That was written up in the.
