Now for the Essay Portion of the Exam

Today's essay question is easy. Please read the instructions quietly while I read them aloud: Congress has convened, and under direction of President Schwarzenegger, they are required to repeal one of the Bill of Rights. Your Congressman has sent out a letter to his or her voters with a request to provide him insight as to which of the first ten Amendments should be repealed. You are to assume that one will be repealed whether you want it or not, and you need to present a brief explanation as to why that one over any of the others.

Don't you have some tax to read?

They'll probably repeal the one where they let the chicks vote. Everyone knows that's when they first messed up. It was all downhill from there.

I'd axe the third amendment. I don't think its ever been used to strike down anything; if anything, quartering soldiers is our patriotic duty as citizens. I would also consider the second, ninth and tenth amendments, as they seem of not use to Congress or the Supreme Court.

I'd get rid of the one that only lets us go 55 miles an hour on the freeway.
