Q&A Friday #34: How Would You Amend The Constitution?
Question: “If you could rewrite the US Constitution yourself, what would you change from the original version?” — mightysamurai
Answer: There’s no need to go back in time and do a rewrite since the Founding Fathers did give us an Amendment process that we, in my opinion, seem far too reluctant to use these days. Some of the Amendments to the Constitution that I would currently support include:
— A Protection of Marriage Amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman.
— A Balanced Budget Amendment that would prevent the government from running these enormous deficits.
— Amending the Constitution to add term limits for members of the House and Senate.
— An Amendment that would prevent the children of illegal aliens born in the US from automatically becoming US citizens.
— An Amendment giving Congress the power to ban the desecration of the flag.
