The Constitution and Hanging Amendments

drawshad asked about time limits on the amendment process. This excellent Constitution site includes a list of unratified amendments, at least four of which are still hanging.

For those who are keeping score and who don't feel like going to the website, the hanging amendments are:

The original First Amendment to the Bill of Rights which would have specified limits on the size of the House of Representatives.

Revocation of citizenship for those who accept titles of nobility from a foreign power.

An amendment that would prohibit amending the Constitution to allow Congress to abolish slavery (among other things).

An amendment that would allow banning child labor.
