Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC 5th District) suggested this idea, for a 28th amendment to the Constitution, in a letter to President Obama, Sen. Richard Burr, and Sen. Kay Hagan on November 10, 2009.
Sounds like a fabulous idea, so I say, keep the message viral until we elect a more balanced Congress in 2010. This proposal will never be addressed by this Congress so long as Democrats control all three bodies of our government.

The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures. None of the 27 amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by constitutional convention.Caution: Other 28th Amendment proposals are floating around on the internet, so do not sign a petition unless you have read it thoroughly. Some call for direct democracy, which is what every socialist/marxist/communist wants. Again, caution!
