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. Share with your friends that love American and the Constitution. Support Eugene M. LaVergne v. Rebecca Blank, Acting Secretary of Commerce, et al., No. 12-778

Please stand with us for the ratified amendment that says we are to have One Representative for every 50,000 people in the U.S. House of Representatives!!

Ends Gerrymandering - Give not bigger government but better, more responsive Government. What the Founding Fathers wanted for us. Where did it go? Why don't you know about it?

The Book is out. .How "Less" is "More": the Story of the Real First Amendment to the United States Constitution Over 600 pages showing you why the Congressional Apportionment Amendment from the Bill of Rights is ratified.

In a stunning work that spans more than 600 detailed and fascinating pages, within which is reproduced hundreds of actual copies of portions of rare government and private books, journals and manuscripts, some never made available to the general public at large before, and with all factual historical claims supported by page after page of meticulously detailed endnotes, American Constitutional Historian Eugene Martin LaVergne has brought together for the first time in the Nation’s History all of the irrefutable proof in one place to show that the Real “First Amendment” proposed by Congress to the State Legislatures in September 1789 was actually fully ratified and consummated into Federal Constitutional Law more than 220 years ago. And as the United States Archivist said in 2010, “Had this been ratified, there would be far more than 435 Members of Congress - nearly 6,000”. With a nation that is today so deeply politically divided by a People resenting the effect of money in politics caused by the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision, exacerbated all the more by a People feeling that our Federal Government has become unresponsive to their concerns and unaccountable to their needs, this stunning historical discovery could not have come at a better time in our history. As the People all soon are informed and come to realize and accept that Article the First is already part of the United States Constitution, this will inevitably be the catalyst for a peaceful Revolution and the immediate and unstoppable reformation of the composition of the size of the United States House of Representatives, all done by the People themselves simply speaking up and taking back the power that they were promised by our founding documents but then wrongfully denied. A must read for all Americans.

What is the Congressional Apportionment Amendment (CAA) from the Bill of Rights and can we prove it's ratified?

The amendment says we are to have one Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives for every 50,000 people in the USA per district per state. Article the First of the Bill of Rights is below, voted and created by our Congress to go out to the states:

After the first enumeration required by the first article of the Constitution, there shall be one Representative for every thirty thousand, until the number shall amount to one hundred, after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall be not less than one hundred Representatives, nor More than one Representative for every forty thousand persons, until the number of Representatives shall amount to two hundred; after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall not be less than two hundred Representatives, nor Less than one Representative for every fifty thousand persons.

There are 12 amendments in the Bill of Rights, not 10 and enough states voted to ratify this amendment by 1792. It now needs to be followed and as soon as possible.

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. 

Interesting point: Why should one elected Representative in the House of Representatives represent around one million peoples votes and another represent around 500,000 peoples votes? Quite simply, they shouldn't.  Your voice and votes were diluted when Congress voted to lock the House of Representatives at 435 members in 1911. The ratified Congressional Apportionment Amendment isn't being followed and doesn't allow for this type of Apportionment of Representatives, but this was one of the reasons the amendment was created. To always give a voice to the People on a level field for all people. We can fix that. We want to put the country back on track for fair representation and do it constitutionally. No new amendment is needed. The United States already voted yes for this Congressional Apportionment Amendment. It's been done. It is constitutional law.
Now, one more thing needs to be done so that Congress will  follow this amendment. The Department of Commerce and the Archivist of the United States are delegated with the task of accepting this amendment and presenting it to Congress.

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 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.

Eugene M. LaVergne v. Rebecca Blank, Acting Secretary of Commerce, et al., No. 12-778 is our PDF filing for the Federal Lawsuit to have the Apportionment Amendment recognized by the Supreme Court as Constitutional Law and require Congress to start seating the correct number of Congressmen and Women from each state. This lawsuit was filed with the Supreme Court in December 2012, after being denied a review in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals on "Political Grounds" and was again denied without comment on 02/15/13 by the Supreme Court. Denying a suit without comment isn't the same as saying it's wrong. It's like saying "I take the Fifth". The suit clearly outlines all the proof you need.  There are other options and we are working on them. Read our News section for updates.

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.

 The 12 Amendments of the Bill of Rights - Congressional Apportionment Amendment

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.
