I like the idea of regularly writing a constitution from scratch. Like, every 50 years. Simply in order to keep it short, consistent and up to date in terms of content and language.
Just like the bible, a constitution is merely a document written by humans. No need to treat it like something that can't be touched or improved.

To the left Would You Tear Up The US Constitution And Start From Scratch



No, I'd indict those in power who try to act outside of it. And that means everyone, NO office would confer immunity on its holder.

I don't know if it is part of the constitution, but I would for instance change the way the Supreme Court is filled. Terms of 10 years max per judge and selection from a pool of candidates (aged between 40 and 60 at the time of selection) of all political orientations by means of a random generator.
