13th Amendment with 20 Sections
This is the Constitutional 13th Amendment with the original 20 sections. 13-20 ruled all of the slave brands that we use today OUT OF ORDER. Check my note on Federal Directive 15 to know what brands are in current use today. This amendment was passed by both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Lincoln on February 1, 1865 and provided for the compensation of both the “slave” and the “slave holder”, land, and Naturalization.
It was replaced by what we see today as the 13th Amendment with only 2 sections on January 31, 1865 and was NEVER properly ratified along with the 14th and the 15th Amendments.
We are subjecting ourselves to VOLUNTARY Slavery via our consent to contracts predicated on the 14th and 15th Amendment and now authorized by the Uniform Commercial Codes adopted in every Union Society State and our lack of defining and defending our Nationality. This is a dishonor to our Foremothers and Forefathers. STOP PLAYING!
