What amendments should be added to the U.S. Constitution?
Term limits should be one. All elected officials in the Congress should be limited to one term of 6 years, and banned from holding any other elected or appointed Federal position with the exception of running for President. The President should also be limited to one term of 6 years.
I'd prefer to see an amendment that requires the income tax be a flat tax. And I would also prefer an amendment to the electoral college that allocates electoral votes to the individual counties based on census data, and not the individual state a whole. But since this would go along way towards stripping corruption out of DC, we'll get none of them.
Hard as hell to amend the constitution isn't it. The one thing that allows for a country not to suck forever too.
It's hard as hell to get the congress to abide by the existing one as well.
Term limits tend to deprive us of the benefits of expertise acquired in years of service in Congress and leave us at the mercy of lobbyists who are all too eager to write our legislation.
No...Term limits encourage lobbyist to partner with the same people repeatedly who get entrenched. The founders never intended politics to be a career. The first 50 yrs of the republic, half of the congress served one term.
Wow...excellent thought, LW-- "The founders never intended politics to be a career." Very true. The office of a public servant was not meant to be a platform for grasping for all the power and riches you could get.
More strict limits on how far the federal government can expand. They have taken control of areas that the Constitution leaves to the States and individuals.

There's an implicit understanding among teabaggers held by most Americans that this country was founded by regular folks. The associated superstition for teabaggers is that government has been taken over by 'elitists'. It's true that in America, a man whose mother is from Kansas and father from...
