Subject: An Idea Whose Time Has Come! A Twenty-Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!


(NOTE: This is the original language of an email sent to many from many sources to me. Such a prospect made me jumping (figuratively) for joy!

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 considered…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. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Have all persons contact a minimum of twenty people on their address list, and in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

(JFD) I will ask each person who reads this to paste it on every one of their blogs all over the land. What we have is a set of self-evident truths, followed by a set of expected outcomes. Why do those people think they are so privileged? This is one grass-roots movement that could take place within the Democrat party, but it should be bi-partisan.

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 “.
