H.R. 3166 - Enemy Expatriation Act - H.R. 3166 - Enemy Expatriation Act

This bill currently before congress would give the government the right to revoke a nationals citizenship. In other words, they can take away your citizenship even if you were born here to two parents who were citizens and also born here. This is unconstitutional, plain and simple; but, lets consider what it might mean.

What happens if you lose your citizenship and do not hold citizenship in another country, what rights do you have at that point? Well, obviously you don't get to vote and perhaps you wouldn't even have a right to work. It also means that you would not be entitled to your constitutional rights. Basically, you would have all the rights of an illegal alien. Maybe people should have thought a lot harder about which rights illegal aliens should have.

How does one take away another's "inalienable" rights? How does that become constitutional? You matter, no matter what they say, no matter what the law, you matter and I matter. The moment your government says you don't matter, it doesn't deserve your respect. Peace.
