and never came back so Lincoln just apriori stuck people
back in to carry on as if a miracle of jurishdiction occurred.
You can do that is you got enough guns and death dealings
to force it. ===========================
If you do a search for 'Robert's Rules of Order' you should find a downloadable copy that you can review. It's my understanding that the'First' (Original) congress was using those rules for their meetings.
What you'll find in Robert's is information that explains that if there is not a full quarum to start the meeting then it can't be started.
And, if there is not a full quorum to decide on a day to re-convein then there is 'no day' to continue that original body.
So it seems to me we have a reason for the congress to keep having a new congress everytime it gets together. Never the old original one, just an imposter. So who's minding the store in place of the first guys?
- May I say a word or two about Roberts Rules? Thank You.
General Henry Roberts was a US Army General who lived in the later half of
the 1800s. Therefore the original Congress could not have used Roberts
Rules under that name.
I believe that the Rules used in early America were based on the Rules of
Order of the British Parliament. General Roberts Americanized, simplified
and made the Rules more useable.
If a Deliberative Body has adopted Roberts Rules and they make a Decision
following Roberts Rules I believe that just about any Court would uphold
that Decision as Law at least for that Body.
If you watch our Congress (Circus) in action on C Span you will see many of
Roberts Rules being used. Motions, Quorum Calls, etc.
