    I have one wish: to have a free hand editing the Constitution.

    I would strike the "general welfare" clause and add one stating the powers of the federal government consist only of those powers specifically enumerated in the Constitution. I would also strike the Post Office. I would strike the 16th and 17th Amendments. I would also add a clause specifically authorizing the states to ignore a federal law if more than half of them vote against it. the minimum age to vote would be raised to 35, and no one collecting a check from the government would be allowed to vote.

    3. Bipartisan citizen redistricting in ALL states.

    They believe in holding on to power in order to line their own pockets. That's all. In that, they are much like the GOP.

    1. That our politicians act in the best interests of those that elected them.
    2. That they stand by and fight for the promises they make to their constituents.
    3. That they demonstrate honor and integrity.

    1. The return of Glass Steagall.
    2. Obama wins a second term and the tea party gets purged from congress.
    3. A reform of the tax code where propping up foreign economies is de-incentivised and domestic hiring is encouraged.
