Three Cheers for FDR!

On this day, March 22nd, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law the Cullen-Harrison Act which legalized the sale and possession of beer and wine. It took another 9 months to adopt the 21st Amendment to repeal the 18th Amendment and end prohibition.

Clearly 1919 and 1920 were bad years for amending the Constitution. I think this anniversary affords an opportunity to take a critical look at the 19th Amendment with an eye toward repeal.

Are you with me brothers?
