40. I agree 100%: The US Constitution needs to be abolished in its present form

 

What we MUST do is to retain the progressive, individual rights aspects of the constitution, remove the unnecessary elements such as the alcohol amendments (counterweight), slavery amendments (obsolete and redundant), consolidate the federal government officeholder elements, and finally, introduce items such as mandatory environmental statutes, anti-corporate statutes, taxation and wealth limitation statutes, and finally, an ability to easily adapt itself into a global constitution that can be a part of other countries' self-governing documents. To this end, why the hell do we need to follow the edict of old white slave owners? The constitution should be a living, breathing document that caters to our progressive movement while denying the capitalist, repressive agenda of the republicanistas.
