I have done some reading since I made that post.
Eugene LaVergne filed an excellent brief in the U.S. 3d Circuit Court of Appeals which you can read here:http://www.scribd.com/doc/94139261/Final-Reply-Brief-and-Addendum
Having lost in the District Court and the Court of Appeals, he filed a petition for certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court. It was denied.
Using one of their standard tricks, the Federal courts are dodging the substantive issues in the case claiming that whether or not an amendment to the Constitution has been properly ratified by at least 75% of the states is a "political question."
In other words, the Supreme Court is going to give Congress the power to decide whether or not a properly ratified amendment is part of the Constitution.
Wow! The House can overrule the states on constitutional amendments. Where does the Constitution say that?
And of course House members will vote to drastically reduce their own power by expanding their number, right?
Let's face reality. We really don't live in the country we were taught about. The country described by our teachers is a fiction.
