    What Part of the Constitution Would you change?

    If you could change one part of the Constitution without having to go through the normal channels, what would it be? Explain why.

    I said the 14th, because it was ratified illegally, at the tip of a bayonet, and reversed everything the federal government was designed to be.

    The only change I would make would be to add the ERA.

    I would add an amendement that would require a balanced budget for all federal spending.

    I'd make an amendment banning neo-cons and extremist liberals.
    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

    Of course you would. Liberals are pretty much always the ones willing to throw the 1st Amendment under the bus the moment it gets in their way.

    I would add a provision requiring anything passed by Congress to concern a single topic only. No riders.
    2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
    2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
    2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

    I would change the first amendment to remove some of the loopholes like saying burning and American Flag is speech when in reality it has nothing to do with speech..........

    I would add an exception (just for the sake of expediency) for cases where it can be demonstrated that the rider in question was of direct national importance and all of congress would have to vote on it simultaneously with the main bill.

    Line item veto just re-arranges the corruption into one person's hands. I would totally support this.

    - As opposed to neo-cons who want to "change" equal rights and due process the moment it gets in their way? Oh pubby. Your hypocrisy.
