    Re: Repeal the 3rd Amendment

    The 3rd amendment is a very useful piece of history. It demonstrates how reactionary our declaration and constitution actually are. Our bicameral system is the result of paranoia from smaller states. Actually, a lot of our system is based on states' inability to get along... But the 3rd amendment was a reaction to a specific action by the British government prior to the war. Soldier quartering was uncommon even then. That we enshrined protection against it as an important right is rather silly. It almost never comes up.

    Is it because your number two was also like a number one, therefore adding up to three?

    Hell no, why should we spend the time and money it would take to repeal it?

    That is too complicated for me to contemplate...

    It's just sitting there, doing nothing, not bothering anyone.




    Besides, if we repeal it there's probably some way it will come back to bite us.

    I suggest toilet paper without patterns.

    Goodness no. Why would that need repealing?
    So the gov't can force you to allow UN gun grabbers into your home.
    This repeal agenda--promulgated by Obama, no doubt---has New World Order written all over it.

    The amendment most in need of repeal would be the 17th amendment.
