BoldTruth.com clearly shows that the Congressional Apportionment Amendment (CAA) from the Bill of Rights is Ratified. In fact, all 12 of the original articles or amendments in the Bill of Rights are ratified. It's time Congress starts following them. Not 10 amendments, 12 amendments. One of those amendments clearly states we should have One Representative for every 50,000 people per district, per state, in the United States seated in the House of Representatives.

What is the Congressional Apportionment Amendment (CAA) from the Bill of Rights and can we prove it's ratified?
We bet you didn't know there was an amendment from the Bill of Rights called the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. More importantly, the amendment was ratified in 1792 with 80% of the states voting yes and we can prove it. The Congressional Apportionment Amendment or Article the First of the Bill of Rights is the first of the 12 amendments that the colonies voted on when our "more perfect union" was formed. We'd like to show you an interesting historical fact. That the Congressional Apportionment Amendment or Article the First of the Bill of Rights was ratified by a vote of 78.6% by 1791 and then 80% of the states by 1792 when Kentucky became our 15th state and voted Yes for all of the amendments of the Bill of Rights.
With the ratification of the Bill of Rights by Kentucky and the discovery in Connecticut's archives in 2011 that Connecticut voted "Yes" to this amendment in 1790, (We are told historically that they voted no for some reason2), caused this amendment to automatically become ratified into constitutional law regardless of the states notifying Congress of their votes.
The Archivist of the United States now needs to accept the fact that this is a ratified amendment. It's up to you to make sure it's placed in our Constitution by demanding that the Department of Commerce and/or the Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero do their job and accept as ratified, the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. The Congressional Apportionment Amendment says we should have One Representative in the House for every 50,000 People per district once the country reached 8,000,000 people.
The Archivist of the United States is David Ferriero. Aside from being the Archivist, it is the role of the Archivist to accept this amendment and present it to Congress as our 28th amendment once he knew it is ratified. He found out in 2011 when he was presented with all the needed facts in the lawsuit "Eugene M. LaVergne v. Rebecca Blank, Acting Secretary of Commerce, el al, No. 12-778". This suit gives all the votes of the states including a certified copy of Connecticuts voting record from 1790 on this amendment. That copy was certified by the Archivist of Connecticut. David Ferriero was one of the defendants in this suit.
Luckly, there is talk on the Beltway that David Ferriero is considering accepting this amendment as ratified and making it our 28th amendment but the longer we wait for this to happen, the greater the damage to our country.
Is it really the job of the Department of Commerce and Archivist David Ferriero to present a ratified Amendment to Congress?
We point to the role of Don Wilson. Who is Don Wilson? In 1992, Don Wilson, then the Archivist of the United States, did his job when it was found that Article the 2nd from the Bill of Rights (and commonly called the Watson Amendment) had enough states voting YES to be ratified. David Ferriero has been served in many lawsuits requesting he do his oath of office. Since David Ferriero has refused up to this point, (Not like the honorable Don Wilson), the lawsuit requested that the Supreme Court require him to do just that. The Supreme Court has declined that offer saying it's a political matter. Take a read in our lawsuit for all the proof you need to show we have a ratified amendment, why the Government of the United States has agreed that we have a ratified amendment, but says this is the job of the Archivist of the United States to accept. Since David Ferriero is the Archivist, David Ferriero needs to do his job. Mr. Ferriero has a twitter account at https://twitter.com/dferriero. Lets all tweet to him and ask him when he'll be accepting the CAA now that he knows enough states have ratified it into Constitutional history.
You'll have to educate yourself and see why we are correct in what we are presenting to you. See below for the first four articles of the Bill of Rights as voted on by the states. All are now passed. You'll notice Article the 3rd is the Free Speech amendment and isn't the first of the amendments to be voted on. It doesn't make it any less important but it corrects a common historical inaccuracy that we only had 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights.
1Interestingly enough, two mistakes were made in the Bill of Rights as it went out from Congress to the states. A scriveners error by one of the clerks swapped the word "More" in the 2nd sentence and placed it in the 3rd sentence and move the LESS into the 2nd paragraph and removed the ceiling for the amount of Representatives by doing so in the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. You can see the mistake above in the copy that went out to the states. The above (and we'll talk about it later in the site) is incorrect and is not what Congress wanted the states to vote on and regardless, the states were voting on what Congress voted on, not what they received. Amazing but true. In addition, the states were also sent "Cruel and Unusual Imprisonment", rather than punishment. The mistakes were reprinted in the official editions of the "Laws of the United States, Vol 1" from 1796. The books now sell for up thousands of dollars and up to millions of dollars in the case of George Washington's copy, all with the Scriveners errors including George Washington's personal copy" Imagine paying millions of dollars for a book that has errors.
2Oliver Ellsworth, and Roger Sherman, were the Connecticut delegates to the Constitutional Convention with William Samuel Johnson. Ellsworth and Sherman slaved over the Congressional Apportionment Amendment. It was their work of art in the Bill of Rights, so important, it was labeled as "Article the First" and to make sure that you always had fair and honest representation and never let the House of Representatives get taken over by special interest groups. Do you really think Connecticut's assemblies voted no for this when the people that created it were the Senators from Connecticut. In fact, they did vote Yes for this amendment and because they voted yes, that took the amendment over the 75% threshold needed for ratification. Kentucky brings it up to 80%. Why we are told they voted no is a different story but it is a story we now find to be a mistake. Now that you know it's a mistake, the Congressional Apportionment Amendment is ratified and needs to be followed as our 28th Amendment to the Constitution.
