A note to Minority Leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi:

The Repeal Amendment proposed by the Republican party is "anti-Constitutional". You should let your Republican colleagues know that, from day one. They've already got the hint. Randy B. Barnett, who teaches constitutional law at the Georgetown University Law Center, wrote an op-ed the other day, in the Washington Examiner, attempting to defend this anti-Constitutional nonsense. Barnett is, reportedly, the wordsmith that crafted the language of this proposed 28th Amendment.

From the Washington Examiner op-ed titled, "Who is afraid of the Repeal Amendment?":

First, the Washington Post's Dana Milbank played the race card. "[T]here's the unfortunate echo of nullification -- the right asserted by states to ignore federal laws they found objectionable -- and the 'states' rights' argument that was used to justify slavery and segregation."

But this is imaginary. Undermining civil rights is simply not on the agenda of anyone who favors this. Besides, to reach the two-thirds threshold to repeal any law would require the support of lots of blue states as well as red states, from different parts of the country.

Fear this amendment not, Mrs. Pelosi. You should look at this proposed amendment to the Constitution for what it is, a bad joke. Crush it with the words of the Constitution, the Federalist Papers (Publius), and the words of the Founding Fathers (The Founders' Constitution).
