Update the Constitution to Fix Our Government
The essay by John Cogswell in The Passy Press focuses on fixes to Congressional processes. No special benefits that are not applicable to all, timely budgets, recorded votes and so forth.
Comments include: “rules don’t necessarily work” (a concept – no matter how true – that is anathema to governing bodies everywhere); and “the satisfying whine and chunk of the guillotine” (frustration levels remain elevated).
Given the mischief surrounding legislative and regulatory efforts, one can only imagine what might happen if the Constitution were reopened to debate.
Let your mind wander. What do you think would be either the best or worst changes that might result from a rewrite of the Constitution?
Humor is permitted and spelling doesn’t count.
