THE 28TH AMENDMENT NATIONAL ROADSHOW

Never before in the history of the United States has our system been so openly corrupted by big money.  Our democracy has been overtaken by corporate interests who have bought favor with politicians, putting up huge roadblocks to any legislation that benefits We The People.  But all over the country people are also fighting back and demanding change.

 

Now is the time to take our power back!

• Over 80% of Americans support an amendment.

• Over 140 groups are working to GET THE MONEY OUT of politics

• 16 states and hundreds of cities have called for a constitutional amendment.

• The 113th Congress proposed 14 amendments

• Over 150 members of Congress support a constitutional amendment.

 

Why do we need a 28th Amendment National Roadshow?

Ever since the disastrous Citizens United people have been up in arms about the undue influence of big money in politics.  But most Americans feel overwhelmed and believe that a Constitutional Amendment is too big a task and that it is just not possible in our current stalemate political climate.  The media makes viewers feel disempowered and has failed to highlight the victories that groups are making to GET THE MONEY OUT.

 

Join us and help spread the word to your members and activists!

Working together The 28th Amendment National Roadshow will unify activists, educate everyday Americans and force the media and people running for office to talk about the future of the 28th Amendment to overturn Citizens United just before the important 2014 election.

    Here’s your new emphasis – start here: WE say:::
    We, The Living People of the American Nation, are formally demanding /All/ True American CongressPeople, Senators, and other Government employees and appointees (Real Servants of the American Republic and Her Living People called ‘WE!’) to Abolish Chemtrails (and Water Fluoridation) thru the proposition of the TwentyEighth (28th) Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of the united States of America: (entitled similarly to::)
    ‘Order to Protect Liberty and Life and Cease and Desist the Poisoning of the American People’.

    Pertaining to the issues of ongoing CHEMICAL SPRAYING, WATER FLUORIDATION, bio/geo-engineering and HAARP activity that is taking place without the consent of the population, as wells other forms of infringements on the Natural and God-Given Right to be an Embodied Being on Planet Earth without being assaulted by chemicals, poisons, medications, genetic/magnetic (etc.)/ -weapons. We are demanding that our Servants /not-only/ disclose information about such activity, but detail AND RATIFY an Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of the united States of America to Protect Her People against such highly treasonous activity, and punish accordingly those who seek to injure the minds, bodies and souls of WE, The People. As Citizens of Our One Nation ‘Under God’ and with God as our Witness, WE DEMAND our government-official servants to represent us, research and assist our obviously valid missions and charges, and take action immediately to terminate such inhumane and environmentally toxic programs that are also having a severe impact, both short and long term, on the health of our population. To wit, fundamentally and foundationally the Programs which are known commonly as Chem-Trails and Water-FLuoridation; and further, all such biological/genetic, magnetic, ecological, nuclear, quantum and other such programs that are not in full accordance with our inalienable and God-Given Right to Privacy, Liberty, Open-Disclosure, and all that is included but not limited to the Word ‘Life’, most assuredly inclusive to the freedom to be not poisoned, irradiated, or otherwise attacked or medicated without due process of Law, in full accordance with the Laws of Nature and Her God!

    CHEMICAL SPRAYING by Aircraft over our American Soil is proved and obvious by results of rainwater tests, soil sample tests, and standing water tests that have been done in various areas of the American Nation are all showing alarmingly high levels of aluminum, barium, strontium, other harmful substances. The heavy metal test results are consistent with ongoing discussions and existing patents for Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering. These heavy metals remain in our atmosphere and are falling upon our soil, our water supply, and our food supply. We are inhaling heavy metal particulate matter on an ongoing basis, and these nanoparticle-sized metals are being absorbed by our bodies, by those of our pets and livestock, and by our produce. The Poisoning/Medicating/Etc. by the Air of the American Nation is Treasonous to Her People and WE, the People, demand that it be TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY!

    WATER FLUORIDATION is the practice of adding industrial-grade fluoride chemicals to water for the purpose of preventing tooth decay. One of the little known facts about this practice is that the United States, which fluoridates over 70% of its water supplies, has more people drinking fluoridated water than the rest of the world combined. Most developed nations, including all of Japan and 97% of western Europe, do not fluoridate their water. The most obvious reason to end fluoridation is that it is now known that fluoride’s main benefit comes from topical contact with the teeth, not from ingestion. Even the CDC’s Oral Health Division now acknowledges this. There is simply no need, therefore, to swallow fluoride, whether in the water, toothpaste, or any other form. Further, despite early claims that fluoridated water would reduce cavities by 65%, modern large-scale studies show no consistent or meaningful difference in the cavity rates of fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. The most important reason to end fluoridation is that it is simply not a safe practice, particularly for those who have health conditions that render them vulnerable to fluoride’s toxic effects.
    First, there is no dispute that fluoridation is causing millions of children to develop dental fluorosis, a discoloration of the teeth that is caused by excessive fluoride intake. Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control have even acknowledged that fluoridation is causing “cosmetically objectionable” fluorosis on children’s front teeth–an effect that can cause children embarrassment and anxiety at an age when physical appearance is the single most important predictor of self-esteem.
    Second, it is known that fluoridated water caused severe bone disease in dialysis patients up until the late 1970s (prior to dialysis units filtering fluoride). While dialysis units now filter out the fluoride, research shows that current fluoride exposures are still resulting in dangerously high bone fluoride levels in dialysis patients and patients with other advanced forms of kidney disease. It is unethical to compromise the health of some members in a population to obtain a purported benefit for another — particularly in the absence of these vulnerable members’ knowing consent.
    And, finally, a growing body of evidence reasonably indicates that fluoridated water, in addition to other sources of daily fluoride exposure, can cause or contribute to a range of serious effects, including arthritis, damage to the developing brain, reduced thyroid function, and possibly osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in adolescent males.
    The Poisoning/Medicating/Etc. via the Water of the American Nation is Treasonous to Her People and WE, the People, demand that it be TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY!

    Let the one who has ears, hear.

    The Constitutional Amendment Process
    The authority to amend the Constitution of the United States is derived from Article V of the Constitution. After Congress proposes an amendment, the Archivist of the United States, who heads the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), is charged with responsibility for administering the ratification process under the provisions of 1 U.S.C. 106b. The Archivist has delegated many of the ministerial duties associated with this function to the Director of the Federal Register. Neither Article V of the Constitution nor section 106b describe the ratification process in detail. The Archivist and the Director of the Federal Register follow procedures and customs established by the Secretary of State, who performed these duties until 1950, and the Administrator of General Services, who served in this capacity until NARA assumed responsibility as an independent agency in 1985.
    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. The Congress proposes an amendment in the form of a joint resolution. Since the President does not have a constitutional role in the amendment process, the joint resolution does not go to the White House for signature or approval. The original document is forwarded directly to NARA’s Office of the Federal Register (OFR) for processing and publication. The OFR adds legislative history notes to the joint resolution and publishes it in slip law format. The OFR also assembles an information package for the States which includes formal “red-line” copies of the joint resolution, copies of the joint resolution in slip law format, and the statutory procedure for ratification under 1 U.S.C. 106b.
    The Archivist submits the proposed amendment to the States for their consideration by sending a letter of notification to each Governor along with the informational material prepared by the OFR. The Governors then formally submit the amendment to their State legislatures. In the past, some State legislatures have not waited to receive official notice before taking action on a proposed amendment. When a State ratifies a proposed amendment, it sends the Archivist an original or certified copy of the State action, which is immediately conveyed to the Director of the Federal Register. The OFR examines ratification documents for facial legal sufficiency and an authenticating signature. If the documents are found to be in good order, the Director acknowledges receipt and maintains custody of them. The OFR retains these documents until an amendment is adopted or fails, and then transfers the records to the National Archives for preservation.
    A proposed amendment becomes part of the Constitution as soon as it is ratified by three-fourths of the States (38 of 50 States). When the OFR verifies that it has received the required number of authenticated ratification documents, it drafts a formal proclamation for the Archivist to certify that the amendment is valid and has become part of the Constitution. This certification is published in the Federal Register and U.S. Statutes at Large and serves as official notice to the Congress and to the Nation that the amendment process has been completed.
