|THE SOURCE OF YOUR POWER: American Graves Overseas|
This is something I will fight for and I hope you all read it all the way through. You will be glad you did.
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18-year-olds) took only 3 months and 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computer, before email and before cell phones, etc.
On the 27 admendments to the constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.
I'm asking you to forward this e-mail to a minimum of twenty people; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in The United States will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

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.
I have read the accounts of many of our Founding Fathers. The above terms of service applied to them.
