I think people should be able to vote on gun rights. I think people should be able to vote on whether money is speech, or that corporations are people.
Let’s put things in the constitution up for a vote:
USA Today: Sen. Ron Johnson, a Republican elected in 2010 with Tea Party support, says he won’t oppose gay marriage if that’s what the voters decide. “I think marriage is between a man and a woman. But again if the voters decide that they want gay marriage, I’m not going to oppose it. I’ll certainly go with the judgment of the American people in terms of where they want to fall on, whether it’s abortion issues or gay marriage or whatever. Let the voters decide.So much for our God given inalienable rights, or the 14th Amendments equal protection clause:
No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.Let's have vote on whether this clause is relevant now.
You do know that the people have the right to amend the Constitution however they want right? Sure it would take a huge majority of the vote, but nobody can overturn the Constitutional Amendment process. I think a Constitutional Convention would be a great idea.ReplyDelete
