    I would never want to be POTUS. But, I would like to be in Congress and sponsor some Constitutional Amendments:

    1) Extend terms of Congress to 4 years, with a 3 term limit, and limit senators to two terms.
    2) Abolish party affiliation on federal ballots, and move to "jungle" primaries, all to be held the same day in all 50 states. The top 2 go to the general election.
    3) Monetary limits on federal election spending (overturning Citizens United and allowing NO spending by corporations, unions, or other organizations). Individuals would be limited to $5,000.00 per candidate, adjusted yearly for inflation. No candidate could spend more than $250,000.00 on his or her own election.
    4) Elimination of lifetime appointment of federal judges in favor of a one term appointment of twelve (12) years. Constitutional limits on rights to appeal, and constitutional recognition of the death penalty in murder and aggravated sexual assault of children. (The States would not be required to adopt a death penalty, but the Courts could overturn those that had).
    5) A balanced budget amendment with line item veto.
    6) Mandatory universal servitude for three years in the armed forces or in a civil organization constituted by Congress. No service? No vote, and no right to any federal benefits of any kind.
    7) Abolition of the Electoral College.
    1) Agree in principle.
    2) Disagee.
    3) Disagree. As long as corporations are consider individuals they have the rights of citizens.
    4) Disagree. The Constitution states very clearly states that those rights not reserved for the Federal government is the responsibility of the States. The Feds can't handle the responsibilities they currently have.
    5) Agree
    6) Agree but with major changes. What about handicapped individuals.
    7). Disagree. We are a Constitutional REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy. Popular vote means nothing in a Republic.

    #7 shows your true colors. It is proof you are a socialist liberal. You can't deny any longer.

    And yes I am the one that disliked your post. That way you know who it was. You might need to think about what you wrote before you hit the submit button.

    TEXAS has a balanced budget.

    Jesus Saves, even Agnostics.

    Draining the Swamp is a tough job.

    Well, someone put it nicely the other day about the electoral college... It was put in place so that a sheer majority couldn't crap over the minority.

    And if the results would have been reversed, the left would be the first ones to shout out how great it is to have the EC... These folks are just really bad losers, and when the system doesn't work in their favor, they are all for dumping the system... Typical.

    I simply do not remember the right being this bad when Obama won.
    We have met the enemy and he is us... POGO

    As someone posted earlier, liberals lie, liberals always lie.

    Liberals, and for a majority of those on the Right, are lost because they have given up on truth and morality by getting rid go God. Without God we have no reference for truth or morality. A metaphor that comes to mind is a compass which does not have a North-seeking pole.




    Le mot catholique n’est pas un gros mot.

    We haven't given up God. The state doesn't want a higher power above them. When God isn't a factor. Man made laws become the law of the land. Sodomites become a cause of the greater "good". Equality among demons. With nothing telling people It's bad.

    It's a power struggle.

    How can you prove that it is "truth"?

    Thank you for proving what Ludwig and Sojourner said.

    Once you quit believing God you have no set reference, like a compass without earth's magnetic field you have no solid standard on which to base morality and instead fall to the Shiffting sand of man's opinion, and the squishy philosophy of post moderism. Without believing God, there simply is no morality.

    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    What is morality to you? If a man takes care to follow the laws of man is he wrong? A Muslim's morality is not the same as yours, but he is following his God. Who sets Morality ?

    I find it hilarious that people think abolition of the EC is a liberal lie. I don't want the popular vote overrun by anyone, liberal or conservative. I wouldn't have liked it if HRC had won by the EC.

    A representative republic - yes. Look at the definition. It doesn't mean we do not elect our representatives by popular vote.

    Some say Jesus was a liberal. Feed the poor, heal the sick, visit people in prison, do not judge, love thy neighbor, etc............ those are the truths of Christ for me. If that makes one a liberal............ then you should all claim to be.
