I say the 16th.The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
Bingo.Without coercing away the wealth of others, the boondoggles of the state would be much more limited.I say let government services be voluntary, if you sign up, you pay. If you opt out, you dont.Simple as that.In this way, we wont have to pay for things we dont want and political decision making will no longer be forced on to people.The voting booth turns into the grocery store, where social programs are bought like loaves of bread.
Quick question: If you could repeal, not change or amend, but repeal one and only one Constitutional Amendment what would it be?I'll start.... I would repeal the 22d Amendment.Anyone wish to play?
The 22nd?You want to have the possibility that Obama could get re-elected for a third time in 2016? Are you stoned or stupid?!
Neither. I've been fighting for the repeal of the 22d Amendment since 1972.I opine that if there was NOT a 22d Amendment Obama would not have been the Democrat's nominee. Think it through. Also, that Clinton would not have been the candidate either. Governor Mario Cuomo would have been.
Again, if I had to choose one to repeal it would be the 22d.
It just might bring sanity back to the Presidential nominating process, to both parties.
Good point. I see the "President for Life" situation easily arising. Had he been in good health (which includes not dying of course, can't get in worse health than that), When do you believe Roosevelt would have left office? Say he won, as Truman did in 1948; when 1952 rolled around, there would be people hitting voting age, who would never recall there having been any other President.
