    As the OP says, if you could change one law, which one would you change and why? This doesn't mean bill, but rather a single law.

    I'd be interested in hearing the answers.

    With all the ones to choose from, how could I choose just one?

    However, to answer: The one law id change is the 16th amendment. Id abolish it.

    That's what makes this thread so interesting.

    And why the 16th amendment the most?

    I'd get rid of the Federal Reserve Act. The government's ability to manipulate the money supply to finance the expanse of big government, and large banks ability to shift risk to taxpayers are two of the worst things that have happened to the U.S.

    Because it is the single law that provides the Federal Government with almost limitless control over our lives.

    Second choice would probably be repealing the 17th amendment.

    Prepares to get slammed for this:

    The Patriot Act.

    Because I feel it was and is a threat to our civil liberties whether it has yet to have been used against Americans or not.

    Requiring all bills in govt to be single subject only.
    That way each item would live or die on it's own merits.
