How About a 28th Amendment?






Nobody Flashes: Here's an email I got last week---It proposes a 28th amendment, which states that the cumquats in Congress also have to live by all the laws that they pass on us.



It's about time they stop putting themselves above the law.


If they did not comply: jail.





(Thanks to Tom Beebe)





Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have 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 is an idea that we should address.

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 is 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 law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

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 ."

Not my Constitution, of course, but Amendment No28 sounds OK to me.

Jail though? Just jail?

How about a bit of horsewhipping too.

How about tar and feather?
How about making them ride in electric cars the rest of their lives?
How about deporting them all to India?

How about...
