What do you think of the idea of electing a small group of ordinary citizens, (hopefully they'll be citizens) and giving them the task of writing a new constitution for our nation? They would not be the professional political hacks, liars, and thieves that we're cursed with today, but everyday folks like us.
Our nation was built on the foundation laid out for us by our Founding Fathers, and worked very well until unelected judges started to tweak, manipulate, and distort the original intent of that document. In many cases, these judges actually made binding decisions, which we were all forced to live with and by, based on things that were nowhere to be found in that Constitution. Meaning, they invented "rights" based mostly on their personal political ideologies, or from pressure applied by relatively small special interest groups who's voices are heard over that of the majority.
We often hear those on the Left whining about how they want the Constitution to be a "living, breathing" document. What they mean of course is, they want a Constitution that they can change and manipulate whenever it serves their agenda. That would be great for them, but would make the rest of us pretty miserable, not to mention, really pissed!
So, what do you think of Iceland's idea? Crazy? Goofy? Undoable here? Or, since our original document has so little meaning anymore, has the time come that this is actually a rational idea?
