This question isn't just for 'mos or US citizens, but anyone.

If you had it your way, what one realistically plausible amendment would you add or subtract to/from the USA Constitution?

I can't say I like this one...stunning, I know.. but there are a lot of people who are pissed enough they have to work for the government as it is (let's not forget our troops either) that cutting thier wages would be an un-recoverable slap in the face....unless you want to move the IRS and SSA to India?!?!?

I like it, but tie it to the people who make the laws. Senators, congressman, mayors etc. The president will get a lucky brake by making the equivalent of 20USD an hour.

So here it goes: All Congressman, Senators, Mayors, Governors, and Councilmen shall make mimimum-wage. There pay shall not go up unless minimum-wage nationwide goes up. The president shall make the equivalent o twenty 2005 dollars.

I'm not sure how to put it in words, but I think there should be amendment to limit Federal spending when the country is this much in debt. I consider the country's debt to be our largest problem. I mean do we really need to be spending over 400 billion on defense? Thats way more than twice of any other country. (just one example)

And i disagree with the minimum wage amendments mentioned above. People who are on minimum wage are most likely on it for a reason, and a minimum wage is a price floor which may actually be bad for the economy. Who knows what the real minimum wage should be. I worked in high school making 5.15, now I'm interning at an engineering company for the summer making $10, why should someone bagging at a grocer make as much me? I'm somewhat fiscally conservative and don't mean to sound harsh.

A permanent draft? Sorry, I'm not for that. You cannot legislate loyalty to the country.

-Repeal the 22nd Amendment. We can have Congressmen and Senators in Washington forever, why do we limit the presidency, especially if we think he/she is doing a good job. This amendment was put in for partisian reasons, and should be removed.

Besides, the best "term limit" is the ballot box.

-Federally elected officials do not receive a pay raise unless the minimum wage is also raised.

-Amend the constitution so that the IRS cannot not make its' own laws. Supossedly only Congress can make law, but the IRS makes it's own all the time. If you're going to have an IRS, strip it of the ability to make it's own laws.

You'll find a lot of resident moderates, liberals and conservatives bashing your idea, B757300. You REALLY would take the vote away from the people, and give it to a bunch of usually backward, small-minded state legislators?

I could ask why, but I know the reason-because a majority of state legislatures are controlled by the right-far more to the right than your average Senator is today, even Republican ones. This would give you your dream of having legislators that approach the Taliban in their extremism to control this nation.

You'll find the reaming of your idea goes across party lines, my friend. Think about that for a few.

Mine would be to limit, by a maximum age or a fixed term of years, the service of all Federal Judges. Judges on all levels in many states are required to retire from being a judge usually at their 70th birthday or a similar age.
Option 1
1) The term of all Federal Judges other that Chief or Associate members of the Supreme Court his amendment will conclude within 60 days of attaining their their 75th birthday.
2) The term of all members of the Supreme Court will conclude on July 15th after their 75th birthday.
Option 2
1) The term of all Federal Judges other than Chief or Associate members of the Supreme Court shall not exceed ---- (15?) years.
2) The term of all members of the Supreme Court is fixed at ___ (20?) years.
Both options
3) This amendment will be effective as to all Federal Judges appointed 60 days after the effective date of this amendment.

My amendment would prevent the extended terms of judges to the point where they have a high probablility of dying as they advance in years, would practicaly mean every full term President during their term, will have an opportunity to appoint 1 or more Supreme Court Judges. It would still have a high level of term or age to assure continunity of service, judical independence, yet allow a refreshing of courts to better reflect an evolving society.

I fail to see your logic. I need you to explain it to me. Here is the text of the thirteenth amendment.

Amendment XIII

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
