WE THE PEOPLE....PROPOSE?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Hubby & I spent the weekend celebrating our 11th anniversary (a week early) at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast. We had the privilege of meeting the chef and owner of Pomme and enjoying his fantastic French cuisine (recently featured in Style Weekly).

We also spent a great deal of time learning about and touring the mansion and beautiful gardens of Montpelier, the home of James Madison our 4th President. Though sadly a slave master and one who should have fought for emancipation, James Madison did pioneer the Separation of Church & State, Bill of Rights, and is considered the "Father of The Constitution".

While in the Education Center of Montpelier, we discovered a bulletin board dedicated to input from tourists for proposed constitutional amendments. There were many and varying submissions. For example, some supported the abolishment of the electoral college and some were in favor of gay marriage while others opposed it. I added a few about addressing the growing danger of religious influence in political decisions and the need to be inclusive of gay rights in support of everyone being created equal.

What constitutional amendment would you suggest?

I don't know if this is warrants a consitutional amendment, but term limitations for Congress.

Nedhead - that's a damn fine suggestion!

All - don't worry about whether your comment warrants a constitutional amendment. Instead, like the original board, your comments are a chance for you to express your views and get people thinking.

So get those creative juices flowing, and let's hear what you think.
