I agree w Riggs. Crapcan the 17th amendment. However I believe America would best be servied by coming up with a new way to pick Senators. How about a performance based test involving a 90 day vision quest in the desert. Turn candidates loose with only notebooks and pens (for writing hallucinatory haikus), shotguns compasses, water purifiers, and bowie knives. Then pick them based on (more below):
- 1. Best haiku reflecting the current needs of their electorate but written under the influence of the psychoactive effects of days wandering the desert starving.
- 2. Fattest Iguana captured and trained to be a sidekick.
- 3. Finding the geocache with a signed hard copy of “Mr_Bloggy on Life and Being - How to Returbulate the Mobarity.”
- 4. Coolest animal spirit-guide. (Not to be confused with Iguana sidekick).
- 5. Kangaroo rat pelts.
Question: If you ruled the universe, which one of our constitutional amendments would you crapcan? Why?
