    The proposed 28th constitutional amendment is VITAL to the survival, if possible, of our representative democracy. Pass this along.



    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 passed ... 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 15 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 AT LEAST 15.

    Gun enthusiasts rally for SecondAmendment rights

    BY EMILY GUEVARA

    Before an estimated 300-plus people, state and local officials proclaimed theirardent support for the right to bear arms.

    Citing the long history of armed citizenry and explaining why this right is keyto every other Constitutional right, their remarks elicited claps, cheers, andwhistles from the attendees who stood on a hillside outside of Tyler's Lock andLoad Indoor Shooting Range on Loop 323.
    “Some may ask, 'Why do we emphatically defendthe Second Amendment?'” state Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview, said during hisremarks. “The answer is simple. If we as state or individuals tolerate tyrannyin the matter of personal self-defense, we will cease to be a free state and afree people.”
