Life, Liberty, and Property
August 15, 1868
The Fourteenth Amendment states that anyone that was born in the United States or has lived in the United States for a while and is accustom to it, they are an American citizen. No state should make or enforce a law that shortens the rights of the citizens of the United States. Also, no state should take away a citizens life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, or deny any person within their power and the equality of the laws.
