    The 14th amendment should be changed because not only was it keeping a number of people unrepresented in Washington but also not all of those who rebel against the United States did so willingly and if they did, then they were too young to understand what was happenning or they have conformed back into society.

    Why should people in cities have less of a vote? That's what the system comes down to now.

    What about everyone else that lives in rural area's?

    Different ideals and views on the role of government.
    If they are lucky, they will be left the scraps.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    They should get one vote, just like everyone else. The system shouldn't try to reward one area, or decrease another area's importance, everyone should be completely level.

    I agree to some degree but as it is with politics it doesn't work like that.

    The only thing they have held firm on is farm subsidies and that doesn't benefit anyone except the corporate producers the most.

    Since my particular area has a lot of elderly people we do occasionally get a senior center.

    I'm sorry, I may not be reading you right, but what is the point here?

    Generally speaking, rural areas are ignored in favor of more populous areas like cities and suburbs.

    On the other hand, people with lots of influence (money) do get the occasional hand out in my parts, those handouts though go to very large scale farmers and not your mom and pop type.

    I really need to work on presenting my point.

    Because we are a "Representative Republic" of individual states not a mob democracy. Why should NY, LA, CHI decide what is best for Butte, MT?

    Re: What Part of the Constitution Would you change?

    I would change the first amendment from:
    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
    To:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or trade, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
    Also a constitutional ban on central banks would be lovely.

    Obama just won a landslide in the Electoral College; wtf are you talking about? But why ask you, since you don't know.
