New Amendments We Need

In several boards the idea of adding amendments to the constitution to protect us from the lefties has been tossed about. Assuming we could (probably not in the near future-we won’t have enough numbers until at least 2 election cycles), here are my top 5-ideas for Amendments. If there are any lawyers out there, maybe you could figure out how to phrase them better.

#28) Americans may be taxed in equal share, either by dollar value, percent of value purchased, or by percent of their income. However, no American shall ever be taxed a greater portion by percent AND dollar value than his fellow citizens. And no product or service shall be taxed by both higher dollar amount AND percent of value than other products.

#29) By no means is the American tax code to be construed as redistributive in nature. Tax refunds, exemptions, and exclusions may be given to promote a government or social interest, but can not by any means be given with regard to personal wealth or hardship, nor race or social class, nor any other distinction whereby money is taken from one class, segment, or race and given to another.

Basically

1) No more redistribution by tax code-everyone pays in.

2) No more protectionist taxes or levies

3) No more using the tax code as a cudgel to “beat” people into buying green products, healthy products, government approved products etc.

And then my personal favorite

#30) The human fetus, once having established for itself the means within the womb to grow and develop into a viable human being, shall be granted personhood and citizenship from its first heartbeat onward. It may not be deprived of life or future without due process of law, and only then may be deprived of such if presenting a direct and immediate threat to the life of its mother.

Also another great idea from theancientmariner

#31) Congress shall make no law exempting its members or their staff in whole or in part from any other law, federal, state, or municipal. All such exemptions are hereby declared null and void.

#32) Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.
