You know what I'd like to see in politics?
A repeal of the 17th Amendment, for one. The Constitution originally intended the Senate to be the representatives of the several States to the Federal Gov't.
The 17th Amendment changed that, and Senators became elected by the people.
Now, there really isn't anyone to champion the causes of the individual States -- and that is, and has been, a Bad Thing.
The other thing I would really like to see, is a Constitutional Amendment allowing for repeal of laws by The People.
I think that if 51% of the people who fall under the jurisdiction of a law haul off and vote 'No Confidence' to that law -- then the law should be immediately stricken from the books.
For instance, a city ordinance could be repealed by a vote of 51% of the registered voters in that city, a State law would be removed by a vote of 51% of the registered voters in that State; and a Federal law would get axed if 51% of the voters in the nation chose to.
In this modern times when the system of checks-and-balances is taking it in the neck, the ability of the people to say, "Oh, hell no!" to a law is the only true check to government power left to us.
I'm not exactly sure how to write such an Amendment -- there would have to be some kind of petition process to get the vote before the people -- but I'm sure there are plenty of people smarter than I who could probably take a pretty good hack at it.
Sure would help to keep the Gummint in check, though.
Something to think about, anyway.
