    i have put together a petition to address the issues of legal slavery in our country it reads as following

    To amend the 13 Amendment of the Constitution of the United States to remove the legalization of slavery in our country

    Since the addiction of the 13 Amendment to our constitution which abolished slavery, it have been a little known and little taught fact that our constitution have alway maintained the legalization of enslaving some part of the American population. With the election of our first African American president this legalization of slavery remains enshrined in the very symbol that stands for Democracy and freedom for all. To spread Democratic values and hope to other parts of our world when we ourselves can not assure our own people of the hope that we are willing to live by our words. To live by our words in 2013, knowing or not that some Americans can be legally held in slavery as dictated by the 13 Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America is a word that insults our nation you will and only if you wish to do so please add your name to what must be done to safe guard the liberty of our children yet to be born do not let us alive today leave this hanging over their heads

    thank you so much



    if you will and only if you wish to do so please add your name to what must be done to safe guard the liberty of our children yet to be born do not let us alive today leave this hanging over their heads

    thank you so much

    david



    will you help me to spread the word

    the 13th Amendment allowed those classified as convents to still be held as slaves, in 2013 USA slavery is enshrined in our Constitution within and enforced by the 13th Amendment i as you know that the our education system have gone to great pains the deceive our American people as to the true nature of the kind of democracy which we are living under. and the election of the first African American president have proven that he intends after 4 years to maintain the legalization of slavery in our country sir/ms please help me to spread the word for i am sure that if our fellow Americans was shown how they was taught that they will act to have this temptation of controlling other Americans stricken from the Constitution

    thanks much

    david e. patton



    13th amendment

    Text

    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[2]

    Effects

    The Thirteenth Amendment completed the abolition of slavery in the United States, which had begun with President Abraham Lincoln issuing the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.[10]

    Shortly after the amendment's adoption, selective enforcement of certain laws, such as laws against vagrancy, resulted in blacks continuing to be subjected to involuntary servitude in some cases, particularly in the South.[11] See also Black Codes.

    Southern states hired out prisoners to private companies and interests as convict lease labor to pay off court fees for such offenses. As these states made the lessees responsible for the prisoners' food, clothing and housing, these states did not build any prisons until late in the nineteenth century. Law enforcement and businessmen colluded to entrap freedmen and convict them, so they could gain revenues from convict lease labor.

    The Thirteenth Amendment is the first of the Reconstruction Amendments. It was followed by the Fourteenth Amendment (civil rights in the states) in 1868, and the Fifteenth Amendment (which bans racial voting restrictions) in 1870.

    if any believe that the justice system of America have shown itself to be fair to all of it people then I do understand why you may believe that there is no harm to our future Americans by leaving this law enshrined in our Constitution, however if the reverse is true of our justice system then none of us should be willing to leave this matter in the hands of future politicians

    ... Welcome Uncle David, and keep up the good work; I've signed the Petition:



    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    Work with Congress to close the 13th Amendment slavery loophole

    Films like “Lincoln”, “Django Unchained” and “The Abolitionist” have sparked national conversations around slavery.
