Ignorance of the Constitution is No Excuse for Taylor Marsh Commenters

Ann:

I don’t think that POTUS should see the declaration of Independence or the constitution as stained. Slavery was wicked and many white Americans ended up fighting to end slavery because they understood the constitution to grant freedom to all men.

Ann, ann, ann. Let’s look at what the Constitution said about ‘freedom to all men’ prior to 1865, before we make ourselves look stupid, shall we?

Article I, Section II, Paragraph III:
“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”

Article I, Section IX, Para I:
The migration or importation of such persons as any of the states now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each person.

Article IV, Section II, Para III:
No person held to service or labor in one state, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due

Yup, the Constitution really supported freedom for all men? And the Declaration? Yeah, not so friendly to freedom for all men, either. Cause, you know, if it was, Southern WHITES would have jumped ship.
