Let's write a new constitution
    #2803675 - 06/17/04 11:09 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

come on, we are all helping design the constitution with Ben "sparky" franklin and Tommy "stud" jefferson.

What could we add that would prevent what we have today in America? Let's make some improvements to the constitution, what should be added or taken away?

I say for starters a popular vote for president, what would you say?

The original 10 amendments were fine.

They don't need to be re-written, just followed.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

politicians who obey the letter of the constitution would be a start.

There could be a few others we could keep. For instance, the 13th Ammendment is good. It should just be clear on abolishing ALL forms of slavery, such as the draft. Also, an ammendment recognizing freedom over one's body should be there.

I think something providing for severe punishment to politicians who ignore the document also would be nice.

I'd be highly in favor of an adendum to the constitution requiring all pieces of legislation cite the specific Article, Section, and/or Amendment of the Constitution that delegates the government to pass such a law.

The ninth amdendment is supposed to cover that and pretty much everything else. Shame people have become too dim-witted to realize the bill of rights does not grant us a select few priviledges but lists just a few of the MANY rights inherent in people that it is the government's job to secure.
