Message Subject The 13th Amendment forbids Titles of Nobility - Why is DR. Ron Paul silently challending this hidden amendment?

"When someone in the United States becomes a lawyer, he or she often uses the title of "Esquire" (or an abbreviation thereof) to signify his or her status, much as doctors attach "M.D." to their names. "

Dr. is a title; Esq. isn't. Esq. is appended to the end of the name not in front of the name where titles belong. Esquire is not a title. If you read the definition of Esquire it says Esquire is a knight or boy, not a title.

If you read Article 1 sec. 9 cl. 8 it says:

"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States. And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the consent of Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."

The 13th says basically the same thing except that "Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust" is the "citizen of the United States" in the 13th. The citizen of the United States in the 13th is the Person holding Office or Trust in Article 1. Now, "citizen of the United States" in the 13th can be none other than a elected official because Congress has no authority to tell a Citizen of one of the several states what they can and cannot do. Only elected officials must seek the consent of Congress before accepting any title of nobility or honor.

There would be no 14th Amendment if the 13th had not been removed from the federal constitution, because the 14th made everyone a "citizen of the United States", which is basically everyone under Congress.
