We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"I confess that there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them: For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise. It is therefore that the older I grow, the more apt I am to doubt my own judgment, and to pay more respect to the judgment of others."
Almost every problem we have comes from the Constitution. It cannot be reformed. The best we could do is to return to the Articles of Confederation.
That would eliminate the federal government almost in toto. We would have a small coastal navy, some custom houses, possibly a postal service, a small professional army and a few ambassadors. The Congress would be a single house with Representatives from each State chosen however the States saw fit. Each State would have one vote.
The President would preside over the Congress and manage the miniscule federal agencies.
The States would collect all taxes other than import duties and be responsible for all government functions including a militia for self-defense.
Judging by the first go round, relations between the States would be pretty chaotic, and cooperation between them would be hard to come by. The States would often ignore the feds, and they would be slow to pay their dues.
All together, this is obviously preferable to what we have.
