The real change is that they need to rescind the 17th Amendment, which
provides for the direct election of Senators, which the Founding Fathers did
not want. They wanted the House and Senate to be always fighting, with the
Senate, who were elected by the state legislatures, fighting to keep tax
money at home in the state (don't forget, we didn't have direct taxation

Hi Everyone. This should be very important to each of us. Mac

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.

*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 didn't pay into Social Security,
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
is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do
not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are
Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.
This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Have each person contact 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 ."
