Support The Troops - Repeal The 3rd AmendmentSubmitted by Chris Skislopeski on Wed, 12/26/2012 - 07:07
The third amendment to the Constitution was written in special times. During the American Revolution it was not uncommon for British soldiers, finding quarters and barracks provided by the British army to be insufficient, to take up residence in alehouses, inns, and even private residences among the colonists. This was one of the Intolerable Acts that pushed the colonies toward revolution.
But that was before the terrorists.
As we now live in extraordinary times, it is high time that the 3rd amendment be repealed, and the doors of every American home be thrown open to welcome our soldiers, our dear, young soldiers, so that they may have a roof over their heads and a pillow 'neath their heads, that they may awaken fresh for the fight against el kayda.
