Didja Know?

Did you know that of the 4440 words in the U.S. Constitution, "freedom" doesn't appear once?

To date, the house of representatives have introduced over 11,000 ammendments, of which 33 were sent to the states for ratification, and only 27 have been approved by the states to be included for amendments.

That means over 233 years, congress averaged introducing 47 amendments per year, with a success rate of 0.2%.

And they get a pension for life after only a single term.
