The Time Has Indeed Come!
Governors of 35 states have already filed suit against the Federal
Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38
(of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please
pass it on.
An idea whose time has come!
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of
Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could
retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically
exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as
being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while
ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest was to exempt
themselves from the Healthcare Reform ... in all of its forms. Somehow,
that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the
I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or
whatever. The self-serving must stop.
A Constitutional Convention - this is a good way to do that. It is an
idea whose time has come. And, with the advent of modern
communication, the process can be moved along with incredible speed.
There is talk out there that the "government" doesn't care what the
people think. That is irrelevant. It is incumbent on the population
to address elected officials to the wrongs afflicted against the
populace ... you and me. Think about this ...
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took
only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people
demanded it. That was in 1971 ... before computers, before e-mail,
before cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less
to become the law of the land ... all because of public pressure.
I'm asking each addressee to forward this Email to a minimum of twenty
people on their Address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America&nbs p;will
have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United
States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or
Representatives; and Congress shall make no law that applies to the
Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the
citizens of the United States .."
You are one of my 20+.
Keep it going.
