If you started your own nation, what would be in your constitution?.I would begin with the US Constitution. I would add a clause that states that whatever laws or policies are enacted also apply to current member of all branches of government. I would add a law that eliminates the healthcare plan that lawmakers currently have and elimate the fact they are currently exempt from the Social Security tax. I would elimate ALL pensions for former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Senators, and Congresspersons. I would add the words to the ERA to the initial constitution. I would openly permit individual states to enact laws that protect their safety (for instance from illegal aliens).
I would add a clause to the initial constitution forbidding the expenditures beyond 80% of the previous year’s taxes. . . Taxes could never be increased without the prior specific approval at the polls by the electorate. The voters would decide what percentage of each of their taxes would be used to fund what activities. The money would then be totaled. For instance, each person decides how much of his/her own taxes goes to what program. Those dollars would then be added to each category. The same would be done by each taxpayer. Whatever the taxpayers decide is how it goes….in other words….those that pay in make the decision. It would be done through their social security number. When you are at the polls you enter the social security number. If you paid nothing, you don’t vote on how the money is spent. You can try and influence others, but remember, the vote in this case is just how your own individual tax money is to be spent.
I would forbid the establishment of agencies that are operated without supervision by someone appointed by congress. I would forbid death caused by anything but natural causes….no killing by the government or individuals (including euthanasia, the death penalty, and the pre-born). I would eliminate the Federal Reserve…
Just a few tweaks to the current system ;–)
