37. Who writes the laws?

Without the Constitution, and the SCOTUS interpretation of it, Alabama would have the 10 Commandments in the Court House.
Prayer in school would still be a requirement, Roe V Wade would not be in existence, and on and on and on........
We may also have complete gun control (or no guns), and other liberal laws which you may like, but what about the ones you don't like.

The Constitution does have two provisions for changing it, the Amendment process, and a new Constitutional Convention. They were deliberately made difficult to do, but not impossible. Start there........
