Child Labor Amendment[edit]

Bob Schaffer - Needs work[edit]

The article you started on Bob Schaffer needs some further clenaup and some references to the sources of information. It had been tagged for too many non neutral point of view statements (jargon etc.) And it was a pretty dense format for Wikipedia. I tried to neutralize and form some bullets etc. I took off the NPOV tag, but this could use some reorganization etc. I'm happy to help if you are unfamiliar with the procedures.

Gharrio[edit]

Gharrio[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Gharrio, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

Twenty-seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution[edit]

Hi Gregory,

Thanks for helping to get those infoboxes and dates fixed on this article. I just added a section with the dates for ratification from each of the states, but I'm not sure about Hawaii and Washington (a quick google search couldn't find their dates), so if you could add them I'd appreciate it (and also take a quick look at the rest of the list to make sure it's sound). If you're "the" Gregory Watson who revived this ammendment, then I'm guessing you're an expert. Pleasure working with you, --CapitalR 10:19, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

AfD and notifying creators of problem articles[edit]

When you nominate an article for deletion, it is usually a good idea to notify the article's creator and other editors who may have contributed to the article so that they can participate in the discussion. Often they can improve the article enough so that it can be kept. You can use the template {{Adw}} for this purpose. --Eastmain 00:09, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Proposed "Liberty Amendment" to the United States Constitution[edit]

Introduction[edit]

The proposed "Liberty" Amendment to the United States Constitution was first proffered, pursuant to the Constitution's Article V, for the consideration of the 82nd United States Congress on June 28, 1952, in the form of House Joint Resolution No. 491 ("proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to calling of a convention to consider an amendment to the Constitution to prohibit the United States Government from engaging in business in competition with its citizens") by United States Representative Ralph W. Gwinn of New York. (98 Congressional Record 8542).

Most recently, it was presented for the consideration of the 112th Congress on March 15, 2011, in the form of House Joint Resolution No. 50 by United States Representative Ron Paul of Texas. (157 Congressional Record E489-E490). Accompanying the introduction of H.J.Res. 50, Congressman Paul declared:

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce the Liberty Amendment, which repeals the 16th Amendment, thus paving the way for real change in the way government collects and spends the people's hard-earned money. The Liberty Amendment also explicitly forbids the Federal Government from performing any action not explicitly authorized by the U.S. Constitution. The 16th Amendment gives the Federal Government a direct claim on the lives of American citizens by enabling Congress to levy a direct income tax on individuals. Until the passage of the 16th Amendment, the Supreme Court had consistently held that Congress had no power to impose an income tax. Income taxes are responsible for the transformation of the Federal Government from one of limited powers into a vast leviathan whose tentacles reach into almost every aspect of American life. Thanks to the income tax, today the Federal Government routinely invades our privacy, and penalizes our every endeavor. The Founding Fathers realized that "the power to tax is the power to destroy," which is why they did not give the Federal Government the power to impose an income tax. Needless to say, the Founders would be horrified to know that Americans today give more than a third of their income to the Federal Government. Income taxes not only diminish liberty, they retard economic growth by discouraging work and production. Our current tax system also forces Americans to waste valuable time and money on complacence with an ever-more complex tax code. The increased interest in flat-tax and national sales tax proposals, as well as the increasing number of small businesses that questioning the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) "withholding" system provides further proof that America is tired of the labyrinthine tax code. Americans are also increasingly fed up with an IRS that continues to ride roughshod over their civil liberties, despite recent "pro-taxpayer" reforms. Mr. Speaker, America survived and prospered for 140 years without an income tax, and with a Federal Government that generally adhered to strictly constitutional functions, operating with modest excise revenues. The income tax opened the door to the era (and errors) of Big Government. I hope my colleagues will help close that door by cosponsoring the Liberty Amendment.

As of 2015, the proposal has not commanded the approval of both houses of Congress in order for its submission to the states for ratification, as the aforementioned Article V provides.

Text of proposed "Liberty" Amendment[edit]

The text of the proposed "Liberty" Amendment—as most recently presented during the 112th Congress in the form of H.J.Res. 50—reads as follows:

Section 1. The Government of the United States shall not engage in any business, professional, commercial, financial, or industrial enterprise except as specified in the Constitution.

Section 2. The constitution or laws of any State, or the laws of the United States, shall not be subject to the terms of any foreign or domestic agreement which would abrogate this amendment.

Section 3. The activities of the United States Government which violate the intent and purposes of this amendment shall, within a period of three years from the date of the ratification of this amendment, be liquidated and the properties and facilities affected shall be sold.

Section 4. Three years after the ratification of this amendment the sixteenth article of amendments to the Constitution of the United States shall stand repealed and thereafter Congress shall not levy taxes on personal incomes, estates, and gifts.

Detailed explanation of purpose[edit]

In addition to those articulated by former Texas Congressman Ron Paul in 2011, the purposes and alleged needs for the proposed "Liberty" Amendment were extensively explained by the late United States Representative Larry McDonald of Georgia who inserted into the Congressional Record of October 9, 1975, pages 32634 through 32641, a highly-detailed question-and-answer accounting.

Support of the "Liberty" Amendment within the state legislatures[edit]

Asking Congress alone to propose the "Liberty" Amendment[edit]

  • Nevada - In 1960, the Nevada Legislature adopted Senate Joint Resolution No. 7 in support of Congress proposing the "Liberty" Amendment for ratification (106 Congressional Record 10749); and
  • Arizona - In 1979, the Arizona Legislature adopted House Joint Memorial No. 2001 likewise in support (125 Congressional Record 12287).

Triggering a convention to propose the "Liberty" Amendment if Congress fails to act[edit]

  • Wyoming - In 1959, the Wyoming Legislature adopted Enrolled Joint Resolution No. 2 in support and went so far as to suggest the alternative means of securing the "Liberty" Amendment via the calling of a convention—as outlined in Article V of the United States Constitution—if Congress should fail to propose it (105 Congressional Record 3085-3086);
  • Louisiana - In 1960, the Louisiana Legislature adopted House Concurrent Resolution No. 22 likewise in support and likewise urging the calling of a convention should Congress fail to act (106 Congressional Record 14401); and
  • South Carolina - In 1962, the South Carolina General Assembly adopted a Concurrent Resolution likewise in support and likewise urging the calling of a convention should Congress fail to act (108 Congressional Record 5051).

I've noticed that you've made edits on the Equal Rights Amendment page, including a citation to a link about South Dakota's rescission in the Congressional Record.

I have no experience with the modern Congressional Record and don't know where to look at GPO website but I think citations to those resolutions in the Congressional record would really improve the article.

Your recent editing history at Equal Rights Amendment shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
You don't own that article. I have repeatedly tried to reach a middle ground with you regarding that article and your response everytime has been to revert me so that the article goes back to your wording.
