What is the Congressional Apportionment Amendment (CAA)

We bet you didn’t know there was a ratified Congressional Apportionment Amendment (Article the First) of the Bill  of Rights. THE WHAT? The Congressional Apportionment Amendment or Article the First of the Bill of Rights is the first of the 12 amendments the colonies voted on when our “more perfect union” was formed. We’d like to show you an interesting historical fact. That the Congressional Apportionment Amendment or Article the First of the Bill of Rights was ratified by a vote of 78.6% and then 80% of the states by 1792 when Kentucky voted to accept the Bill of Rights and become our 15th state.  
 
With the ratification of the Bill of Rights by Kentucky and the discovery in Connecticut’s archives in 2011 that Connecticut voted “Yes” to this amendment in 1790, (We are told historically that they voted no for some reason*), caused this amendment to automatically become constitutional law regardless of the states notifying Congress of their votes. The Archivist of the United States now needs to accept the fact that this is a ratified amendment. It’s up to you to make sure it’s placed in our Constitution by demanding that Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero do his job and accept as ratified, the Congressional Apportionment Amendment.  The Congressional Apportionment Amendment says we should have One Representative in the House for every 50,000 People once the country reached 8,000,000 people. 
 
Interesting point: Why should one elected Representative in the House represent 1 million peoples votes and another represent 500,000 peoples votes? Quite simply, they shouldn’t.  Your voice and votes were diluted when Congress voted to lock the House of Representatives at 435 members in 1911. The ratified Congressional Apportionment Amendment isn’t being followed and doesn’t allow for it, but this was one of the reasons it was created. To always give a voice to the People on a level field for all people. We can fix that. We want to put the country back on track for fair representation and do it constitutionally. No new amendment is needed. The states already voted yes for this amendment. It’s been done. One more thing needs to be done so that Congress will  follow this amendment. One man that is delegated with the task of accepting this amendment into constitutional history isn’t doing the job he pledged, no, swore with his hand on the bible to do, but he might at any time.

1 Rep for every 50,000 people? 300,000,000 divided by 50,000 equals 6,000 Representatives? Did I type that into the calculator right? We’re gonna need a bigger building!
Seems like it would be a big increase in gov spending. Also seems like gridlock in congress, which I’m not against.

it wouldn’t be Gridlock in Congress. You have that now. You’d have local people representing local people. No more buying off each Representative for millions of dollars. The average campaign would cost $100K or slightly more from now on. No news papers want this deal. There goes the advertising budgets out of the window. Need a bigger building? Perhaps but we’ve built much bigger buildings for simple things like sporting events and concerts. Our actual cost to add one rep per 50,000 people is only $5.00 per person per year. Try calling your representative now and you’ll never get through. This amendment was voted yes by enough states to be an amendment. Now to speak up for this and the other 27 amendments and lets get it rolling.

Should be some building available in D.C. right now as the gov. owns many it does not use.

A 4 minute video on the history of representation in the U.S. House and why citizens should petition Congress to send the original 1st Amendment to the States for ratification. Let the debate begin.
