All of these things are constitutional according to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court admitted they disregarded the Framers' intents in the court's opinion in New York vs USA, in 1992, Congress will never amend the Constitution to restore the Framers intents--its not in their interest.

HOLLY HILL --It's experience in John Penny or youth in Chris Via that appear to be the best choices for voters in choosing their next mayor in today's primary.
