I was looking at the astounding number of federal laws passed every single year, and it occurred to me: part of the problem is that elected officials feel the need to "do something". With millions of laws on the books, all they can do is make more and more laws, which further and further stifle us as a country.
I propose that all laws not specifically enumerated in The Constitution expire after 10 years.
This would give us
A) something for the politicians to "do" without thinking of new crap to tie us up with
B) it would mean "bad" law doesn't last for decades (NFA Act '37 for example)
C) It would mean law more closely matches the current political makeup. No ramming something through in the dead of the night which is still there years later, even though it was passed through deceit and legislative maneuvering ala ObamaCare, Social Security etc....
