Yes...that’s a common evasion ploy also. Look again in the very article’s description and you will see that its measures aren’t allowed before 1808. You argue the only point you can with examples that violate the very article you seek to use. Good try.
I'm not sure what you are referring to. Article V includes this text:
"...Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article;"
However, the 1st and 4th clauses of Sec. 9, Article 1 deal with the importation of slaves, not a CoS. Therefore, I stand by my original reply.
