Another Amendment I Think We Need.

I know I am not in any position to do more than vote, but I still feel that the Constitution needs to amended in a few areas. Also if these were written by politicians it would read more like legalese, but here is another one that I think would help secure our freedom.


Section 1. The United States and its constituent States share sovereignty with the Federal and State governments each having spheres of absolute sovereignty. The Federal government may not cede sovereignty of itself or the state governments to an international federation or union of nations except by the approval of two-thirds of both houses of the legislature and the approval of the legislatures of three-quarters of the states. Ceding of sovereignty is defined as granting an outside power authority over citizens of the United States (or their property) within the territory of the United States or the power to directly draw taxes from the citizens of the United States.

Section 2. In any case, sovereignty may never be ceded to a federation or union of nations unless all members of the said union are electoral democracies and the chief executive and the legislatures of the said union are elected by the citizens of the constituent nations. The charter of any such union must protect freedom of religion, freedom to tell the truth and state honest opinions, the right to defend one's self, family, and property, the right to private commerce, property rights, the right to a fair trial for the accused and arrange for regular contested elections, as well as guarantee the right to secede from the said union, otherwise sovereignty may not be ceded to it.

The purpose of this amendment is to primarily to limit the encroachment of the UN into our internal affairs.

Pity that the Supreme Court uses foreign law to interpret the Constitution...

I would add an amendment that requires every elected public official to pass a drug test periodically at random.

If it's good enough for pilots, commercial vehicle drivers, soldiers and police, it should be good enough for our govt officials.

It would do plenty to clear the air for sure!
