    I pretty much 100 % disapprove of amending the constitution except for very big things.

    I'm that, if anything...

    Far too many people want nuclear without understanding the logistical financing behind it. I'm not sure I want to expand government to get that done.
    Not THIS government, no. Iím just imagining my ideal system of governance.

    How much do you think it would actually cost?

    I'm fairly sure it would pale in comparison to the amount we spend on other inane ****.

    I support Amending the Constitution whenever we the people want the Federal government to do something itís not explicitly permitted to do so by the US Constitution e.g., creating and running a nuclear infrastructure.

    Yeah, you are a libertarian, so I guessed that.

    We should invest in a large device which consists of a shaft through the rotational axis of the sun, with arms attached to the various planets to turn it. Said shaft would then be attached to a very large generator.

    If that doesn't work, nuke is the way to go. It works for the sun.

    Well let's do some math. On average it's about a billion per plant. To actually replace coal and gas as well as reduce carbon emissions, it's somewhere around a thousand nuclear plants. That's a trillion dollars.

    I'm fairly sure it would pale in comparison to the amount we spend on other inane ****.

    Well lets build miniature suns. I mean, they are already trying to create minature black holes. Why not?
