What if you woke one morning and the gauntlet had been toss down, "You want 'Molon Labe' than we shall give it to you and God and the Law are on our side." The Left is in power, in full control, and this time they mean business. Resistance springs up, not overnight, but day by day. It is not reported but nothing travels as fast as word of mouth: assassinations, bombings, sniping, riots... The powers retaliate with massive arrests, jails are so full they start using prisons and set up camps, sections of cities are under martial law... It makes matters worse. It's a stalemate. The military refuses to support either side. The Left realizes it is 'do or die' and turns up the heat: total Martial Law and the Constitution is push aside. The Right responds in all its ugliness... Three years later, the nightmare is over. The Left wants to surrender with the assurances they will not be prosecuted or held responsible for any actions during 'The Troubles.' The military sways the acceptance with an ultimatum, the fighting must stop, accept the terms or they will join the Left. Five days later, you are approached asking if you would accept a position in the New Congress as a Representative. You accept. The first challenge is to decide if the Constitution of old should be rewritten to reflect some of its shortfalls or leave it alone. This is your first vote. Your second, what changes are needed if a rewrite is declared. Questions: 1. Vote: rewrite Constitution or leave it? 2. What changes does the Constitution need if the motion is approved? I will start... 1. Aye - rewrite. Keep the Constitution but add, edit or amend to reflect the following: 2. Term limits for professional politicians Mandatory retirement for Supreme Court Justices Balance Budget Amendment Flat Tax The floor is yours, Congressman. How will you change the law of the land to ensure peace, prosperity, and personal freedom?
