20. Don't kid yourself

All it takes is a SC ruling that says the 13th amendment has exceptions.

They could rule that "common sense exceptions" are applicable. They could rule that people could "voluntarily" choose to become slaves for some payment (significant or otherwise).

It's important to remember that the constitution ONLY says what the Supreme Court says it says.

Having said that. I think all this is silly talk. As much as I dislike Trump, I really don't think he's trying to restore slavery, but it does make for good rhetoric.
