From what has been presented, there are two citizens, one a Citizen his God given Right echoed within the 5th Amendment. Then came the 14th amendment introducing the second citizen, a citizen of the United States. The Fourteenth Amendment is written to protect that citizen from The Citizen within the states. In addition The Citizen standing as a citizen could also call upon the Fourteenth Amendment for protection from the states.
Its 1868, the south abandon the battle field, all the slaves were stolen from the southern states by the United States, the northern states could impose their will upon the southern states. The Fourteenth Amendment was to give protection to the property of the United States. Before the Fourteenth Amendment we were free, now we are all citizens to the United States. Go Ron Paul 2012!
