The Time Has Indeed Come!
« on: September 18, 2010, 06:22:49 PM »
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.  That is totally logical.  We should not have an elite that is above the law.

I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever.  This self-serving must stop.  A Constitutional Convention 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 18 year olds the right to vote) 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 will have the message. This is one proposal that  really should be passed around.

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 ."


If passed, this is not Nam, those will be the fucking rules!

Yeah, I'm thinking that the U.S. Congress needs a dose of "across this line, YOU DO NOT!!"

Take it we support you from the UK.

There is a Billy Connelly quote that states (I can't find it exactly so here paraphrases) the first thing that should stop the individual from being a politician is the fact that the individual wants to be a politician.

I was one (a politician) whilst at university and I wouldn't trust them.
"I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and  that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road."
