Propose to re-address this, and add it as the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
(Considerable controversy surrounds this Amendment – The official position of the Federal Government is that it was never ratified – but – in the past few months there is more than ample evidence that shows the Amendment was properly ratified on December 9, 1812, and if not then, certainly no later than March 10, 1819.)
This Amendment was for the specific purpose of banning participation in government operations by attorneys and bankers who claimed the Title of Nobility of “Esquire.” These people had joined the International Bar Association or the International Bankers Association and owed their allegiance to the King of England. Banning Titles of Nobility began in the Articles of Confederation, continued in two places in the Constitution, and finally was added as an Amendment to the Constitution — an Amendment that was needed as the other bans had no teeth in them to punish those persons who chose to ignore the Constitutional Law.
April 30, 1812: Louisiana becomes the 18th state in the Union, but is not consulted on the pending constitutional amendment, although Louisiana recognized the validity of the 13th Amendment by publishing the Constitution in its Law Books in 1825 and again in 1855.
June 12, 1812: The War of 1812 begins.
June 12, 1812: Governor Plumer of New Hampshire sends letter to New Hampshire Legislature accompanied by letters from the Chief Executive Officers of Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Vermont indicating ratification of the 13th Amendment by their State.
Virginia thus is shown to have properly ratified the Amendment. Discounting the letter from Governor Plumer of New Hampshire also requires that the Senate Record from New Hampshire also be discarded. There is no basis under which any reasonable argument can be proposed whereby it can be shown that both the Governor and the Secretary for the Senate were both lying.
Even if the New Hampshire information is wrong, Virginia printed a copy of the Constitution showing the 13th Amendment in its Law books in 1819. This date is the date, if no earlier date can be confirmed.
December 9, 1812: New Hampshire ratifies the 13th Amendment, the 13th of the 13 states required.
Ratification was completed on December 9, 1812.
Passed by Congress May 1, 1810 – Ratified December 9, 1812.
“If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the united States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.”
…and add this:
“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.”
