||"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." - Patrick Henry|
The 26th amendment, which granted the right to vote for 18 year-olds, took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail,
and before cell phones.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, 7 took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.
The American people did not make contracts with Congressmen. Congressmen made
contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned
"citizen legislators", so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work...if
they can find a job in the private sector.
