I think the bad guys are sacred of the heroes and the tap dancers are managing a shuffle ball change just enough to keep in step with re-election.

Thursday July 24, 2014, twenty-three heroes, Americans voting with their time to reverse the Supreme Court erosion of our equality of citizenship, congregated in the Russell Senate building waiting for Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va).

We came bearing the political umbrella to save We the People from the supreme 5-4 deluge against our election process. It was a grassroots effort to convince Senator Kaine to co-sponsor the Udall Amendment SJ Res 19.

Now, there are other resolutions and amendments that could contribute to our pre Citizens United political balance, but the Udall Amendment is the cow prod needed to overrule the 5-4 Supreme Court.

Around 1:55pm the Senator's Deputy State Director & Legislative Assistant, Keren Charles Dongo showed us into Rm 388, explaining Senator Kaine was called to a vote, but would arrive thereafter.

On twenty-three faces I saw concern that this was another bait and switch, for though no one expected a Second Continental Congress, these were professional people, true patriots who came to The Hill to be about their Founding Fathers' business.

Shortly after Fairfax County Democratic Committee member Stephen Spitz began speaking, Senator Kaine entered all smiles, apologies and caveats. The Senator, with all due respect to his "favorite", the 14th, was unequivocal - He didn't favor amending the Constitution.

So he faced twenty-four thousand voters, for the math on The Hill is every voter that comes face to face with a member of Congress represents one thousand Election Day votes.
