    While we're at it, I don't like the fact that there's a Governor-General in New Zealand. Let's repeal that. It doesn't matter to me really, but I just want to change someone's constitution.
    New Zealand has a Governor-General? What the ****? That is ridiculous.

    Goodness no. Why would that need repealing?
    There is no reason to repeal it. just interpret it to mean whatever you want. I mean are we really ever at peace? and what is peace? I see soldiers stationed in homes to make sure people live according to the aca rules.

    You have a point - language and vocabulary can change and does change all the time; sometimes language has meaning sometimes it ceases to have meaning.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Great idea.

    Let's start a whole new political movement to remove the bugger. That way we will forget that ISIS draws closer every day, Obamacare is failing, Hillary is lying, NASCAR is boring and the US is in decline.

    true. what is language? noises a persons body makes to try to control their surroundings. and words are just symbols . letters arranged in a certain order, but why accept words the way other people do? children are taught language and words, but why ? why? words have no meaning. drifting , emptiness

    No, the 3rd Amendment is an essential preservation of civil liberties.

    New Zealand should abolish the position of governor-general and cut its ties with the monarchy. That is literally a better idea than this.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    I would like to think that people who voluntarily elect to spend their free time discussing (primarily American) politics should have a basic knowledge of the Bill of Rights.

    yeah, but with that one you'd actually have a ca(u)se.
