THIS IS REALLY SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT FOLKS!!

Posted by tawodi on February 1, 2011


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. Also
once a Constitutional Convention is convened, previous amendments
can also be repealed, changed, or left alone as is. Congress is
one way laws can be passed. But, a Constitutional Convention is
another way laws can be passed by “We the People”. Just think if
the 17th Amendment was repealed. Article V of our Constitution
allows for a Constitutional Convention. You can read more about
it here at the link provided below.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree,
please pass it on.

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. Even the 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?

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people,
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 .” In a Constitutional
Convention, term limits could be finally put into place for
Representatives and Senators. A Balanced Federal Budget could
also be placed into the Constitution to further restrict what
Congress can and cannot do.
Think it over and pass it on if you wish folks…..Rev. Bruce…..Tawodi

  1. You can read the applications for an Article V Convention at http://www.foavc.org. There are over 700 applications from the states.
