A friend sent this to me.  I can’t think of a reason to disagree can you?  It is short and to the point!

It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I know many of you will say, “this is impossible”.   Let me remind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is the time when Americans can join together to reform Congress – the entity that “represents” US the citizens of the USA.
