Text of the amendment?[edit]

Most articles on US constitutional amendments include the full text of the amendment. That's the first thing I looked for in this one after reading the lead section -- why isn't it given? I understand that the amendment was proposed in various forms and none of them actually passed, but that's no reason not to give some form of it -- say the one that came one vote short of passing in the Senate. If it's very long, then at least give some key part of this, or say it's too long to quote on full.

The article used to have a header "For the texts of proposals, see Texts of the Bricker Amendment"; but the link and article both disappeared several revisions ago. I've recreated the article; is there any reason I shouldn't restore the link?--Orange Mike 02:45, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

So where's the link? —Tamfang (talk) 08:53, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Upper right hand corner of the article, above the Senator's portrait. --Orange Mike | Talk 20:15, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Prejudice[edit]

This article is extremely inaccurate, and paints non-interventionism as xenophobic, when non-interventionists tended to favor open borders. The Alien and Sedition Acts have nothing to do with non-interventionism and their inclusion in this article is misleading. Non-interventionism is based on the idea that countries can engage in private commerce and cultural activities without killing each other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.10.161.4 (talk) 13:17, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

The article is not about non-interventionism; it is about the Bricker Amendment, and distinguishes quite adequately between nationalism and non-interventionism. --Orange Mike | Talk 20:15, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Carol Anne Bond v. United States[edit]

Is this June 2014 case relevant to the article and worthy of a mention? See discussion at http://www.newrepublic.com/article/118059/bond-v-us-supreme-court-resists-radical-takeover-foreign-policy, and case at http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/12-158_6579.pdf.

WP has an old article at Bond v. United States (2011), which is a different issue, pertaining to standing. Milkunderwood (talk) 01:40, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
