Hey Guys, I'm a Poli Sci major and one of the classes I'm taking this semester before my eventual graduation next Fall is Constitution Writing. It's a new class that hasn't been offered before and we supposed to be analyzing elements of the current US Constitution and offer up our critiques and suggestions that we feel might improve upon it because I'm sure many of us feel a little disenchanted sometimes with the government. So we can spitball ideas that we feel can rectify the problems in the country. Anyway, I've noticed many people here at LPSG have some interesting political ideas and was wondering what your thoughts might be for changes to the Constitution? For instance: - Disbanding Political Parties - Limiting/ Increasing the Presidents War Powers - Possible New Amendments I'm currently writing a paper about the perpetual US Congress. Ninety percent of the members in Congress today are re-elected to their seats because incumbents are favored in elections. This upsets many people who feel that the status quo dominates in the national legislature and Congress no longer adequately represents the will or the interests of the people. My suggestion would be to amend Article I of the Constitution and establish term limits for Representatives and Senators. So that they cannot be continually re-elected ad infinitum and this would hopefully return some responsiveness in government back the American people. What ideas do you guys have? PS- I'm not looking for an easy way to find term paper topics or anything else of that nature, so don't accuse me of that. I'm not lazy or uncreative. Like I said I'm a PS Major and I'm honestly just curious what other people have to say.
