Proposed 28th Amendment

Note: This is a letter that has been floating around on the Internet, in one form or another, for quite a while. I’ve gotten it several times, so I’m posting it as “Name Withheld,” but this is the first one to mention the Fox Story on student loans. I HAVE NOT VERIFIED THIS, nor have I verified the other statements noted below.

That said, the last paragraph is what it’s about. Read the letter and, if you agree, copy the link below and send it to everyone on your list.


No one has been able to explain why young men and women serve in the U.S.
Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get
50% of their pay while politicians hold their political positions in the
safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and
receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make
any sense.

On Monday, FOX news learned that 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?

35 States filed lawsuits 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... 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.
