As so many people pointed out on an earlier thread of mine, compromise in Washington is just a pipe dream. In other words, America is sunk. If I were to rewrite the constitution, it would look something like this:
1. Consul- Serves for 5 year terms and can run unlimited times. Presides over Supreme Court, High Council, and Senate.
2. Court- 9 judges. Works close to how the current one does, except the judges are appointed by the individual Houses that make up the Senate, ie each house has three judges.
3. High Council- Sort of like the Cabinet. Made of however many Counsellors needed. Elected by the people. MUST be one of the foremost minds in that respective field. Is NOT allowed to interfere with work of any other Counsellor, except with special permission from the Consul. High Council members introduce laws, bills, regulations, etc related to their particular area.
4. Senate- Composed of 3 Houses: Upper, Middle, and Lower.
Upper- 50 members. 1 from each state. Elected ONLY by the wealthy (those making over 250k a year) in that respective state.
Middle- 200 members. 4 from each state. Elected ONLY by the middle class (those making 249k-21k) in that respective state.
Lower- 50 members. 1 from each state. Elected ONLY by the poor (those making less than 21k a year) in that respective state.
Senate must pass a budget in conjunction with Consul and Counsellor of Economics by the first of each year, for that year, else they forfeit ALL paychecks that shall NOT be paid until a budget that turns a surplus for the nation is approved by an 80% majority. Laws are passed with a 60% majority from the senate, featuring at least 30% support from each of the Houses. People of all nations, creeds, and faiths may vote in the elections, so long as they are a citizen of the nation. Senatorial elections are for three years in all three Houses. High Counsellors may be removed at any time as long as approved by a basic majority in the Senate and moved by the Consul.

I've even created a new name for the country with this constitution: the Free and Independent States of America (FISA, for short).

Any thoughts or changes anybody would make to this constitution?

Congress may not exempt themselves from any laws they pass.

If you break constitutional law you have to light yourself on fire on national TV until you die.

Mark Levin's The Liberty Amendments

By Thomas Lifson

Tomorrow marks the publication of Mark Levin's important new book, The Liberty Amendments. I must confess that I had some trepidation when starting to read it, for as the editor of American Thinker I turn down most submissions that propose amending the Constitution as a solution for what ails us. The reason is simple: amending the Constitution is deliberately difficult to accomplish, so changing it is a solution easy to propose and difficult to dispose.

But Mark, whose body of work as a political thinker includes not just the significant tomes Men in Black, Liberty and Tyranny, and Ameritopia but also three hours a day of extemporaneous political talk on one the nation's most popular syndicated talk shows, is in a different category. And not simply because of his stature. The Liberty Amendments consists of a well thought-out program of amendments (offered as a starting point for discussion and modification), combined with a political strategy that could (at least potentially) work: using a constitutional convention called by two-thirds of the states. As Article 5 of the Constitution reads:

No more than 10% of the workforce can be employed by the government.

Actually, we just need the brainwashed debt cult, compromise is a dirty word TP TO BE PUT OUT TO PASTURE BY THE gop- NOW HAPPENING. Rush, Beck, Savage, Levin, and all the other bomb throwing charlatans should be shot, and Fox should should get a gd grip LOL. Bring back the fairness doctrine and a little brave debate and they'd be gone anyway... And all the hater dupes on here with them.

Well since the far left does not care about the current constitution this is a moot discussion.

Yes. Let us ignore the far left partisan editorial slant of the majority of MSM outlets.
All persons not expressing pro leftist views should be executed.
Repeal the 6th Amendment for all non liberals.

Fuck you asshole.
YOU should be shot. Then have your teeth knocked out.
Cyber pussy...

God no. Don't even think of a "new constitution". Why do the people who think we should secede or revolt or create a new constitution ridicule the "tea Party" people who are trying to peacefully get the right people elected and freaking live up to the Constitution we have? What we need to do is to get involved.
