    Maybe it's time for America to have a new Constitution. In fact, I think that I might be able to do a better job than what is currently in place. Maybe someone here could do a better job. So I would like to start a contest whereby people can enter in this thread and draft a "new" constitution for the United States. After people enter and submit their versions, I will create a new thread and poll in the much more active "politics" section of this forum and link to your submissions. There is no prize except probably learning a lot and impressing other people or embarrassing yourself a little.

    Even if America should not have a completely new Constitution, I think it is healthy to think in these terms of improvement.

    The rules:

    1. You can enter solo or with other people as a team
    2. Submission by a deadline to be set
    3. No length requirements
    4. Must be written for modern America, not a historic alternative

    The players/teams:

    1. Something_Else
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.

    I'll add the names of people as they ask to be a part of it.

    Let me be the first to suggest retaining the existing constitution.

    As a start...

    Name ten people a majority Americans would trust to write a new constitution:lol:

    The US Constitution was written in secret without the most proper authority. It was sent out to the US people as a whole as a strictly up or down vote. It is the voice of the people that gave the document it's finally authority.

    Not gonna happen that way or any other way again -- unless a constitutional convention could be called. Good luck with that you ignorant idiot.

    I agree.

    Go write a new constitution in the country known as get-the-fuck-out-of-my-country.

    Benjamin Franklin said that there would come a time when Americans were so corrupt that that Constitution would no longer be applicable. That time has come.
