Proposed Amendments to the US Constitution.

Proposed Amendment 28 to the US Constitution! (From the internet)

"Congress shall make no law that applies to any citizen of the United States that does not apply equally to all US Senators and Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to any US Senator or Representative that does not apply equally to all citizens of the United States. All existing laws and regulations that do not meet this criteria shall be declared null and void."

I'll add number 29:

"Amendment 22 to the United States Constitution is hereby amended to include members of Congress by inserting the words, "No person may serve more than two full terms in the House and the Senate."

...and 30:

"All requests for increases in congressional pay, allowances and perquisites will be included on the ballot for national elections and approved by a majority vote of the people. Retirement pay will be calculated at 2.75% of highest pay times the number of years served. Those congressmen already retired are grandfathered. Those in office upon ratification of this amendment will be subject to this amendment."

These three amendments would return Constitutional government to America and end the rule of career politicians which has been so detrimental to this country.

Amendment 31
No disgruntled "conservative or liberal" shall have the power to overturn a general election determined by ALL voters who elect a person you do not agree with or happens to be of a race different than yours.
It is the PEOPLE - all of the people - who have the choice to vote for whom the want.
You have the right to be whiny and pissy about it, but have no right to change it until the next election.

Amendment 32
Under the First Amendment to the US Constitution, already allows freedom of religion to all - but the separation of powers prohibits PUBLIC money to support such religious endeavor.

Amendment 33
Activist judges are only considered activist when they make decisions you don't like. when they decide in YOUR favor, they are fine.

Amendment 34
You have the right to shut the hell up and the obligation to support your country and president whether you like him or not.

Even though your comments have absolutely nothing to do with what the article I wrote was about and amounts to an ad hominem attack by a misguided and disgruntled liberal, I think you deserve an answer as you seem confused about America and its founding documents.

Fortunately, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States does confer the power to change the administration at any time to the people. Actually, Americans are required to take action when the administration is in direct opposition to one, the other or both. You should read them. There is no requirement to wait until the next election if the situation is dire enough and I think it is. The procedure is called impeachment.

I resent your unfounded racist comment. I am race blind, but I can see incompetence and policies detrimental to the Constitution of the United States with no problem. See your oculist.

Where do you find this "separation of Church and State in the Constitution? Please provide the specific article and clause. I don't recall saying the state had to fund anything religious, although it has and still does do so. Wash your hands. You are pulling stuff out of your backside.

Activist judges make law from the bench. Liberal judges make decisions that are often contrary to the US Constitution and get overturned. Even the Supreme court has overturned its own decisions more than 200 times.

So, I have the right to shut up. That statement is the last redoubt of a liberal with no facts and no valid ideas. In fact, I have every right to speak my thoughts and opinions. Read the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States in your spare time. I have no "right" or obligation to support any administration whether I like it or not. I do have the obligation to do my best to prevent America from becoming a fascist cesspool. As a matter of fact, I took an sworn oath to prevent just that. I will honor that oath to the letter because I do not have an unthinking herd mentality and I am honest and transparent in my words and deeds. How about you Mr. Anonymous? What does your constitution say?

Now that you have vented your spleen and made a total ass of yourself do you feel better now?

Make that the Frist Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, Mr. Anonymous.
