So far in this congress there have been roughly thirty-five Amendments to the Constitution proposed. These include ones to ...

Restore the Clintonistas

Save the Pledge

Protect Victims

Repeal the Income Tax(Huzzah!)

and...

Limit citizenship rights

It's unfortunae that some of these won't actually get passed...

What's even more unfortunate is some of the stuff that has been passed, and is likely to be passed in the near future. *coughPatriotoneandtwocough*

Couple of things I'm surprised about:

1 - Is 35 amendments a high number, or a low one?
2 - The protection of victims amendment hasn't been passed yet - that makes a bit of sense to me upon first reading.

However, I'm really hesitant about repealing the income tax; living in a state without one (and, granted, with incompetant gov't), I find not having one just causes huge budget problems. I wouldn't want to see the same thing on a national scale.

Texas doesn't have one, and their budget runs just fine.

Even here in Taxachusetts, the local Libertarian party got a question on the ballot to end the income tax. It lost, but it got a shocking 45% of the vote. The bright yellow sticker endorsing Question 1 still adorns my Saturn.

There's a easy solution to that; massive spending cuts for crap that should never have been funded in the first place.

Ugh. I wonder if there's a work around with having a "suggested donation" or something instead of selling used items.
