In that spirit, I think you may be disinterested to learn about the most uninteresting Constitutional Amendment. Amendment 23. Motto: "We're 27th!"


The Most Obscure Constitutional Amendment?



On March 29, 1961, Ohio and Kansas voted to ratify the Constitution's 23rd Amendment. Today, that amendment remains obscure and still controversial to a small, but critical, group of Americans.



The 23rd Amendment allows the residents of the District of Columbia to vote in presidential elections, but only with the fewest possible amount of electoral votes. And perhaps more importantly, it didn't grant District residents representation in Congress, which is still a sore point today.

The amendment doesn't get a lot of discussion outside of the District and not a lot of attention in general. For example, since the National Constitution Center launched its Interactive Constitution in September 2015, the 23rd Amendment has been the least viewed of 35 sections in our web constitution, lagging behind the 17th Amendment (direct election of Senators) and the 24th Amendment (the poll tax).


There were more words to paste, but they were fairly boring.

There was a time when the 2nd was as equally as boring, so there is hope for the 23rd.

Take back the 23rd: Make it great again!

Remember when Obama was attacked by the Right for using fancy mustard and wearing mom jeans and a helmet while riding his too small bike?
