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 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 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. 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 .” You are one of my 20.

    No, it’s the text of a wildy inaccurate chain email.

    Markers that should have been red flags

    – Republicans control only 14 state legislatures
    – The Attorney General of a State files lawsuits, not the Governor
    – State Legislatures call for a Convention, not the Governor
    – It takes 2/3 of the States to call the Convention, not 3/4
    – The proposed amendment has nothing to do with the ficticious lawsuit
    – The email says “Send this to 20 friends”

  4. Thanks. Good job! Write more. It seems like I become regular visitor
