As most of us know, despite the limitations imposed by the 10th Amendment, all 3 branches of the US government operate mostly outside the Constitution and exercise powers never granted to them by the founders. In another thread, I proposed 8 Amendments that I believe would serve to reign in the now rogue US government and bring it much closer to the type of government idealized by the founders and within the principles of our founding document, the Declaration of Independence. This is my list: 1. We need a legitimate process to enforce the Constitution on government. That would mean among other things, taking away qualified and absolute immunity for government servants. 2. We need to repeal the Federal Reserve Act and enforce Article I Section 8 Paragraph 5 (To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;). 3. We need to remove the seized power of the judiciary to "interpret" the Constitution. With that, we need a system that reviews all proposed legislation for constitutional compliance and return all non-compliant bills to the legislature for correction. This should be controlled similarly to a jury system (in the hands of The People). Judicial review would be limited to interpreting laws for constitutional compliance, not the Constitution itself. Judges should be also be elected and serve no more than 2 terms of no more than 6 years each. 4. We need to make corporate lobbying illegal. Only people lobbies would be legal. 5. We need to make corporate campaign contributions illegal (overturning SEC vs Citizens United and along with it protected corporate "rights"). Only contributions by ordinary people would be legal and limited to a maximum per person per candidate per office. 6. We need to repeal the 16th Amendment and end the income tax permanently. Along with that disband the IRS. 7. We need to enforce Article I Section 8 Paragraph 11 (To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;) and remove all such decisions from the Executive. 8. All candidates for public office should be required to pass a rigorous test on the Constitution and be barred from running for office if they cannot answer at least 90% of the questions correctly.
