123. Why not advocate impeachment? Sure, go ahead. "Grand Inquest"......
........A book written by the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist. "The play's the thing....." and all that. Such an inquest will accomplish more than an actual impeachment and trial.

Most of the Constitution has to do with the framework of government. Most of that will not be "tossed" but reconstituted minus all the flaws.

The Bill of Rights is the most controversial part of the Constitution. That has to be rewritten in 21st Century prose, style, and emphasis - with unquestionable specificity.

We will not be starting over. We will always be a republic except that we will have more participation directly from the governed rather than from officials selected by partisan political ideologies and destructive demagoguery.
