So feel free to pen one.
Frankly I don't want our current murder of political crows, on either side, anywhere near my Constitution.
ok i will.
WE THE PEOPLE...resolve that self-love and love of power are immutable human tendencies, that such tendencies mean all societies bend toward corruption and tyranny, that the purpose of government is to safeguard our liberty but government itself can threaten liberty, and therefore that power must be set against power in unending contest so no single interest can ever dominate.
repeal the 2nd amendment.
repeal the 10th amenment.
now do your version!
What a horrible idea. Fortunately, the Founders had the prescience and common sense to put safeguards in place to prevent "ignorant of history morons" like you to ruin The Constitution.
Since the Constitution was ratified it has been amended 27 times and changed innumerable times. Alabama's Constitution has been amended over 850 times. Is our Constitution is too hard to change to keep up with America's needs? Perhaps trial amendments would fill the bill? Would it still be wrong to let Americans vote on amendments?
My version already exists.
My version: leave it as is.
Your version is a nonsensical and delusional Utopian view that just enables totalitarian thugs to turn people into slaves.
No thank you.
The process for change is intentionally difficult. It prevents tampering via the whims of the mob.
Yes, it would be wrong to subject the Constitution to transient pop culture mob rule.
An Amendment is serious business...so a lengthy process for a super majority approval makes far more sense than "trial" amendments. It's quite astonishing that you would think that a trial would be anything other than a powerplay to subvert the Constitutional protection of minority viewpoints.
you can't have totalitarian thugs with term limits. you're the thug for not agreeing with my beautiful New Constitution (TM)
