    OK do not get excited this is not a thread where the answer is going to be a right or wrong answer. I hope an open discussion is all. OK America is gone, how would you start over?

    Let's go back to the beginning, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It's a great start.

    By simply returning to the constitution and the rule of law. Upon returning to that, and a new continental congress formed by the people an immeadiate ammendment to the effect of removing all rights of a corporation to influence government by monetary means.

    Its time to take the government away from the oligarchy and place it back into the hands of the people.

    let me remind everybody for the purpose of this thread there is no wrong or correct answer. Just personal opinions of what they would like as a government.

    The whole constitution, or just parts of it? If we went back to the Constitution as it was written, when it first was, it may not be the best starting place. For one-you wouldn't have the right to vote.

    But I think our political climate has been lost somewhere along the way. Only having two major political parties, special interests controlling the strings (on both sides), and career politicians have all lead us to ruin.

    Oh and the Bill of Rights is apart of the Constitution...



    edit: But I would start by going by the Constitution, and how it's written today. I personally would change the electoral college into what Nebraska and Maine do, and apply that to every state.

    I'd break up the country. The time for compromise and be united is long past. Recognize that and restore the nation to what it was, a loose confedration of independent states with a weak federal government limited to specific enumerated powers.
