Today I’ve posted the second of three proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution which I’m convinced would establish the foundation necessary to restore trust and confidence in the American democratic process. See Proposal 2. I’d appreciate your thoughts and comments.
You may recall the first proposal serves as the foundation for the second proposal by requiring honesty—and eliminating deception—in the exploration of future proposals. The cornerstone of the second proposal is equality and provides every American with an equal and fair opportunity to be heard by their government. This includes eliminating the use of wealth to dominate:
—The election process—and who’s elected
—The lobbying process—and who has access to public policymakers
—The media—and most of the information provided to The People.
Again, there are two caveats to the following first three proposals:
- Requiring honesty—and eliminating deception—in all matters of public policy.
- Eliminating the influence of money and wealth on elections and lobbying.
- Establishing ethical rules and term limits for public policymakers.
First, none of the proposals are cast in stone—and I’d appreciate your suggestions in having them be shorter, simpler, more effective and more attractive.
Second, the first three proposals do not represent all of the valuable proposals available. These proposals are designed specifically to serve as the necessary foundation for all future proposals.
The third of the following proposals—establishing ethical rules and term limits for public policymakers— will be provided in a few days.
