The first thing you have succeeded in doing is persuading me to help=20
you, however minorly, in your essay writing.

That's great!

Well, you can ask a whole lot of people that question, and they'll all

give you different answers.  So my answer to you is to look here:

http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US

You can find all sorts of Supreme Court decisions about all kinds of
things.  My answer for which one is most controversial will be
different from what you think is most controversial.

If you can't find an amendment you (dis)like, try reading the actual
constitution again.

Done!

Your grammar is fine, but your spelling could use some improvement.
