THE 28TH AMENDMENT, AND HOW CORPORATISM AND A DYSFUNCTIONAL CONGRESS HAS BROUHT US TO THE POINT OF THE PEOPLE BEING FED UP

There are actually many issues being proposed for the 28th Amendment. but reversing Citizen's United is the one already moving through the system at both the federal and state levels.

There is another one which is really tied to this one which wants to make the Declaration of Independence law.  But those advocates take it too far.  If you do not know in Texas v. White the U.S. Supreme Court found unconstitutional or replaced by the Constitution the inherent right of the people to throw off a government which does not respond to the people and denies the people their inherent rights.  We do need another Amendment to restore the Declaration of Independence to its rightful place in Law and its legal principles which form the basis of the founding of our Republic..

Here is a must read article on the issue.  It really speaks to uniting the people of all political persuations.


MITCH MCONNEL PROVES HE CANNOT LEAD AND WILL ENDANGER ALL OF OUR TROOPS

Our cowardly Senate, both Repubicans and Democrats voted to override President Obama's Veto of the law which allows 911 victims to sue Saudia Arabia.  You see it is easier to play the people with simplistic but dangerous ideas, than speaking honestly and fankly,

You see what our esteemed inept leadership did was tell every country in the world they can now pass laws allowing their citizens to sue our troops for collateral deaths during war.  Congress was warned but ignored all of the experts.

"Senior officials, including CIA director John Brennan, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, and Secretary of State John Kerry, had urged Congress not to approve the bill, because, as Obama explained in his Sept. 23 veto statement, it "could encourage foreign governments to act reciprocally and allow their domestic courts to exercise jurisdiction over the United States or U.S. officials — including our men and women in uniform — for allegedly causing injuries overseas via U.S. support to third parties." That was the concern Ryan raised on Thursday."

Although warned about what would happen if this law went forward, McDonald then blamed the President for a law he vetoed which McConnell now admits needs to be fixed because of unintended consequences.

"McConnell blamed Obama for not warning Congress earlier. "I told the president the other day that this is an example of an issue that we should have talked about much earlier," he told reporters on Thursday. "It appears as if there may be some unintended ramifications of that and I do think it's worth further discussing." Obama had called McConnell about the bill on Monday, then sent him and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) a warning letter on Tuesday (Reid was the lone senator to vote against the override)."

This is beyond surreal.  McDonnelled allowed for the veto override and then blamed President Obama  for what both Senate and House leaders now concede is a bad law.

Now while they spend months failing in trying to fix it, other countries will pass similar laws and the US and its troops will find themselves being sued in foreign countries.  This is a disaster.  

But we are so divided we are no longer even listening to one another.  This was not hard to explain to the people.  But explaining the truth would not have been popular.  It was just easier to open the door to our troops being sued in foreign countries.

This is why the majority of U.S. Americans oppose both Trump and Clinton, and I do not blame them.
