i love the idea but there is no way our congress or senate would ever vote that into law. They would have to be retarded to do so. But i do like the idea
"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 ".
This is a proposed Amendment to the Constitution. Article 5 of the Constitution provides a means to bypass Congress when adding Amendments to the Constitution. It's next to impossible but it can be done. Article 5 reads "...on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress..." It's hard to do and it's supposed to be. That's why there has only been 27 of Amendments throughout the history of the country. Many of us may remember the equal rights Amendment that started the process but could never get the support of 3/4 of the states. There has been a lot of talk flying around the internet on using Article 5 to stop the Federal overreach via the Interstate Commerce Clause. The means is there to do it but is the will of the People strong enough to follow it through. I guess time will tell. We do live in interesting times. Lisa
