The Third of Three Foundational Proposals: Ethical Standards
Here on Independence Day, I’m posting the third 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 3. I’d appreciate your thoughts and comments.
The first two proposals—eliminating deception and establishing equality—also serve as the foundation for all future proposals.
This third proposal provides:
• Ethical standards for public policymakers
• Term Limits for Congress and the Supreme Court
• A prohibition against lobbying by, and preferential treatment for, public policymakers
Again, there are two caveats to each of 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.
Your input, and sharing with others, is encouraged!
