n a 2011 radio interview, ousted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore revealed that he fervently wants to move the U.S. back to the 40s — the 1840s.
CNN’s K-File unearthed the audio, in which Moore said that eliminating all Constitutional Amendments after the 10th would “eliminate many problems.”
The 10th Amendment — which passed in 1791 — enshrined the Bill of Rights into law, stating that any power not given to the federal government is shared between the people and the states.
There are 27 Amendments to the Constitution, the last of which passed in 1992. Among the Amendments Moore would happily do away with are the 13th and 14th Amendments, which abolished slavery and established equal representation. The 19th Amendment gave U.S. women the right to vote.
