That's cheating.

Lets leave out answers like "abolish the government" or "You must follow whatever ___ says". Defeats the point of the question.

One to limit defense spending to 4x that of the next highest spending country.
Something like that.

Sounds good, but I'd go so far as to say that clandestine military operations (AKA military operations done in secret without abiding by international law) should be banned. Such an amendment would probably have saved millions of lives and dozens of fledgling democracies.

I like the idea of prohibiting the government from keeping secrets. But I don't think it would be very effective.

Sure it would. As long as we stop fvcking over other countries, our government will have nothing to hide.

The making of, or repealing of laws regarding issues of morality will be decided by a vote of the people, rather than the Judicial system.

Life begins at conception. Once conceived, any intentional termination of pregnancy is considered murder, and all parties involved will be charged accordingly.

Hmm....I'd probably have to go with redoing the Courts, especially SCOTUS...Don't know how I'd actually do it, but I shouldn't be able to say "this Justice is Conservative, or that Justice is Liberal". I want to see a Justice and say that this Justice upholds the Constitution. That's it. So I'd probably redo the manner in which they are appointed. Not sure how, but I believe it's definitely got to be done.

The more you post about such things, the more I think you're just trolling.

No law may be made that restricts gun ownership, of any type of gun. Citizens may only be denied ownership upon showing of cause to believe that citizen to be threat.
