Overview

Are We The People? by James W. Lucas

"It is proposed that an unelected permanent committee of five elite lawyers have the power to amend the Constitution any time that, in their sole opinion, they feel it needs to be updated."

How would you vote if you were presented with that proposition? But that is what the United States Supreme Court has become. Have ever you wondered why it is, in a democracy, that a single Supreme Court justice can decide on the meaning of our Constitution for over 300 million Americans – even though our Constitution begins with the words WE THE PEOPLE? Do you personally remember the last time the meaning of the Constitution was decided by the deliberative democratic method the Framers intended – amendment?

Are We The People? shows how we, the People, can take back control of our Constitution from Congress and the Supreme Court. By enabling the states to directly initiate amendment proposals and other careful limited reforms, the "Amendment Amendment" presented in this short book will revive the ultimate power the Framers gave us. Carefully balanced to appeal to both progressives and conservatives, the Amendment Amendment is intended as a content-neutral, politically realizable proposal which could actually be enacted under our existing amendment procedures. It is time to reform the amendment process and return final control of our Constitution and our government, as the Framers intended, to we, the American People.
