    I don't know about getting rid of the constitution but it's clear that the government is completely and utterly broken.

    I disagree with dumping it, but I do believe it needs a complete and thorough overhaul and revision to deal with the changes in language and situation that the country finds itself in at this time.

    I want the forum to notice that I actually agree with something Tigger said. I even gave him a "like."

    Maybe there is hope for the future after all.

    2. Eliminate the Electoral College.
    3. Ban corporate and union campaign donations.
    4. Limit super-pack contributions to the same amount and rules regulating the campaign.
    5. Ban lobbyists from donating to campaigns.
    6. Repeal the 17th Amendment.
    7. Standardize all ballots nationally.
    8. Grant every citizen with one of those new "real ID" driver's licenses a passport, since the same information is required at application.
    9. Any American citizen spied on by the government upon the conclusion of the investigation must be notified at the initiative of the government, given the data collected on him and given the option of having that data destroyed and never accessible by the public under the FOIA under an expanded right to privacy.


    Just a few...
    I applaud the ideas and proposals, even if I do not agree with some..
    Our government has to do some explaining with this spying business - if true - this is something that must be done very carefully - privacy is not my gig..
    Repeal ?
    Repeal nothing...even the 2nd...so tempting to do this...

    Thanks, but somehow I get the feeling your revised Constitution and mine would look incredibly different.

    It's not really a change of subject, since my belief that the constitution should not have been that which replaced the AoC is exactly the reason why I am in favor of dumping the constitution.

    Oh ??
    Maybe your definition of broken is different than mine.
    But our government can be greatly improved using Smeagols suggestions.

    Your constitution would be one sentence: "People get the (dark ages) rights that we give them and if they don't stfu then they will be put to death."

    That's not really a constitution.

    LOL! No doubt Tig. But at least both of us recognize that in a country that boasts it's "freedom," that the citizenry should not be enslaved to the will of the citizens born 200 years ago. I equate that to having to wear the same sized shoe we were given when we were babies. Feet grow. So do nations.
