The government will never vote to limit the size of government.

Though I support many of the above

Sorry, but this one is a horrible idea. There is a reason the court say is final and they are not subject to constant replacement. If the super majority truly doesn't agree with a ruling then they should pass an amendment. Fundamental rights are not suppose to be subject to the will of the majority. I do agree with the rest of them though.

~ An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Members of Congress Yes
~ An Amendment to Restore the Senate (repeal of the 17th Amendment) Split
~ An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Supreme Court Justices and Super-Majority Legislative Override No
~ Two Amendments to Limit Federal Spending and Taxation No
~ An Amendment to Limit the Federal Bureaucracy Don't get it. Which ones, and why?
~ An Amendment to Promote Free Enterprise (redefining the Commerce Clause) We already have free enterprise. Maybe defining stricter limits on the Commerce clause, but that can be accomplished through the Courts.
~ An Amendment to Protect Private Property (curbing abuses under the Takings Clause). Private property is already protected, plus private property is not, and should not, be absolute. Nobody should be able to control their own little fiefdom
~ An Amendment to Grant the States Authority to Directly Amend the Constitution No
~ An Amendment to Grant States Authority to Check Congress Yes
~ An Amendment to Protect the Vote (requiring photo ID) Yes

Yes or no, What is you take on this?

Really? so their should be no recourse? seeing their two major cases in which they ****ed up US vs Miller and Dred Scott v. Sandford.. that and Plessy v. Ferguson

Fundamental rights are not suppose to be subject to the will of 5 out of 9 lawyers as well.

Term limit every 6, 4, and 2 years. Just because you don't like how another state votes, doesn't mean you have the right to shove out someone they support.

I like the popular vote of Senators

No, for people who so profess to love the constitution, there was a reason why supreme court nominees are for life terms. I like the way the founding fathers set it up, just fine thank you.

Good luck with limiting the spending and taxation by amendment. There are ways to work around that at any rate. And "Federal Bureaucracy?" Seriously? Could there be a more ambiguous term? Every amendment then on out is just stupid.

As I said in the other thread, its hard to have a real conversation about what the founding fathers said and did, with someone who doesn't understand what they did themselves. Go, please, read a history book.

I support all.

Also, did you see Mark Levin on Hannity talking about the Liberty amendments? I think that was the best 60 minutes for Liberty, ever.

The amendments appear to be worded as vauge and wishy washy as the constitution itself.
