What A Great Idea!

The Repeal Amendment

The proposed amendment reads: “Any provision of law or regulation of the United States may be repealed by the several states, and such repeal shall be effective when the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states approve resolutions for this purpose that particularly describe the same provision or provisions of law or regulation to be repealed.”

I am 100 % in favor of this idea. Any federal law that can’t get 17 of the states to support it needs to go away.

    That would thin the heard quite nicely. Of course dipshit socialist states like mine would take it upon themselves to replicate the federal laws within our boarders. See our lovely “Assault Weapons Ban” that’s still in effect….*spit*

    Problem: this is in conflict with the constitutionally-granted powers of the federal congress, and it does not distinguish between constitutionally-authorized federal law and illegal legislation.

    I prefer an amendment that requires a piece of legislation to explain its constitutionality, or be declared null and void regardless of the congressional vote.

    Either way, any constitutional convention is going to end up ruined by dingbats, so you have a better chance of pissing on the Moon from your back porch than getting your amendment passed. We’re more likely to get a 5,000 page amendment guaranteeing free “healthcare” to transsexual aquatic fruit bats that nest in Monsanto genetically-modified coral reefs than anything remotely resembling sanity.
