Proposed Amendments to the
the United States of America
The American Revolution began
primarily because of a tax without representation on tea, which if we adjust for inflation, amounts to about one
dollar per individual per year. There should be no question in the mind of any liberty loving American that the
people of the United States today have infinitely more just grievance against the subverted collectivists and servants
of international finance who run our country than the Founding Fathers ever did against the British.
America is today
little more than a Socialist slave state, with consent occurring primarily because of apathetic reaction to false information.
Members of the two evil parties like to quote the Founding Fathers, especially if the party name is the same. The problem
is that the party platforms are not the same. Libertarians are getting a bit tired of hearing Socialists quote, as ideological
allies, individuals who by today's standards, are Libertarians.
There are many now who would scrap the Constitution
of the United States and write an completely new document. This particular patriot would never agree to such a thing, being
much too sentimental about the history of America. Besides, a new Constitution isn't necessary. The original is almost completely
a Libertarian document, even though the principles were not at the time, equally applied to all people.
Constitution remains a living testimony to the growth of a great nation, reflecting the hopes and aspirations of it's people.
In it we can see many of our mistakes, and in some cases, our recognition and admission of these mistakes. It should be preserved
for the children and be continually amended as we grow in understanding as a people.
What follows are proposed amendments
to the Constitution in order to help bring this venerable document to it's highest potential as an instrument of Libertarian
action. These ideas are offered to help establish a direction for enlightened discussion among those genuinely concerned about
the future of America. The timing for any particular change, of
course, must be such as to minimize any potential short term bad effect upon individuals or the economy.
suggestions are formatted as substitute paragraphs or changes to existing paragraphs in the Constitution. They correspond
numerically to the original. Additionally there is a separate amendment pertaining to the Federal Reserve Bank. In reading
these proposals, most would want to have a copy of the Constitution at hand for purposes of comparison. See link below.
