Updated Constitution

I was reading the US Constitution last week and noticed that it needed a few updates. Although the whole idea of a nation-state is quaint, imho, if the USA collapses in the next few decades people will probably want a new one similar to the old. I assume that right-wing gun nuts will be the principle organizers, so on that basis, I made a few minor changes to the constitution.

*No more women's sufferage. : (

*Half the number of amendments. Many were incorporated into Article 2, Section 1.

*Individual right to bear arms

*No direct election of senators

*Immigration tax based on gold, not dollars.

*Specific dates and deadlines removed since they are no longer needed. Also Article 7 has been replaced with the former 10th amendment.

*Slavery still illegal, all other references removed

*No income tax

*Runoff voting for presidential elections; electoral college still in effect

*Congress may coin money, but not "regulate the Value thereof."

*Congress can no longer regulate interstate commerce.

*Cruel and unusual punishments may be established by the legislature.

It begins thusly:

We the People of the [insert nation here], in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the [insert nation here].

Revised Constitution
