    This poll presumes the reader/participant is at least minimally educated and knows which Amendments are which.

    You may vote for more than one, as some people feel that several should be repealed.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    5th and 8th.

    Criminals deserve no right to silence. The need to punish is or at lest should be unusual and punishment is never effective without some level of cruelty.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    I agree with this. I'm adding the 5th to my list.

    ETA it won't let me add it to my already cast vote!

    You can't really repeal an amendment, you can only amend.

    Wasn't the 18th repealed?

    Regardless, even if the 21st only technically amended the 18th, for the purposes of this thread that distinction is noted, but is also semantics and not especially relevant.

    I was being technical I suppose. Just disregard, we get your meaning. I think amendments technically supersede clauses.

    Re: Which Constitutional Amendments, if any, should be repealed?

    First and second amendments? Why would they be repealed?

    3rd amendment - It's IMO the ideological foundation for private property laws. Good luck getting anyone to side with it in the long run.

    4th amendment - No state liberal or conservative would agree to it. Even in Liberal states, there are already many challenged brought up against outfits like the NYPD for violating it.

    16th amendment - There isn't a single Republican welfare state in the union who would go for repealing the 16th amendment. You think Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky and Alaska would try and repeal the one amendment that ensures their states don't look like Tajikistan? It's far more likely that the mostly Democrat states which carry the country would want to repeal it. To the chagrin of Republican welfare queens like Bobby Jindal's Louisiana.

    17th amendment - I can see that one as being repealed. There is no reason for voters to directly elect their senators and state legislatures have become almost irrelevant because of this amendment. I think it should go back to the senate to pick a senator that is not chained at the neck to whatever donors the party has.

    22nd - I think it should expanded to include the Senate and House. There's no reason windbags like McCain, Byrd, Dingell, Waxman should serve for 20+ years or into senility.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I couldn't have said it better.

    I could see many people wanting to repeal the 2nd, though maybe not many here at DP. I could also see some "law-and-order" types wanting to repeal, or at least modify, the 1st to cut down on right of protest, etc.

    Not me for either of those, but I can easily see some wanting to, hence the inclusion.
