The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

This one, or series of laws that propagate the ability to enforce: www.propublica.org...

Creditor/Debtor, not in-line with the times, wages, or "the pursuit of happiness".

Yeah, this is a good one. They really need to kill those, but in this case maybe tighten up on enforcing the protection laws.

I get calls from someone on 100 numbers for someone who had my number before me and no matter how many times I tell them it's not me, they never stop. And they are so nasty. And the courts just rubberstamp the lying thieves' judgements when they say they served papers and never did and they're allowed to just go into peoples' accounts or wages and pull money out?

I mean I believe iin paying your debt but sometimes it just isn't possible.

It was a toss up between that and the NDAA.

anti sodomy laws



seriously though this is a great thread topic and it could go on forever before any single law is ever repealed.

there are i believe millions of laws in the us



Number and growth of criminal laws[edit]There are conflicting opinions on the number of federal crimes,[24][25] but many have argued that there has been explosive growth and it has become overwhelming.[26][27][28] In 1982, the U.S. Justice Department could not come up with a number, but estimated 3,000 crimes in the United States Code.[24][25][29] In 1998, the American Bar Association (ABA) said that it was likely much higher than 3,000, but didn't give a specific estimate.[24][25] In 2008, the Heritage Foundation published a report that put the number at a minimum of 4,450.[25] When staff for a task force of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee asked the Congressional Research Service (CRS) to update its 2008 calculation of criminal offenses in the U.S.C. in 2013, the CRS responded that they lack the manpower and resources to accomplish the task.[30]

I don't know about a law, but I would definitely want to repeal the 16th Amendment to the constitution which empowers congress to tax incomes.

I am sorry, so many laws to get rid of. But i think the best thing you could do to fix things is make a new law. OUCH Make it so congress can only push one thing forward at a time for a bill or law ( no pork ) then they would vote correctly. Sometimes they don't vote for something they want because something they don't want is in there. Congress is supposed to be the checks and balances for everything and their hands are tied with PORK, I hate that kind of PORK so muck i think i am becoming half Muslim lol.

I would repeal the law that allows the writing of "laws" save those in the field of science.

We have written history of many centuries, and most laws end up abused for man to exploit man.

It reminds me of an old joke...

In capitalism man exploits man, In communism its the other way around...

I'm pretty sure we have those in GA. But as far as I know no one's ever been arrested for it.


a reply to: Ex_MislTech
I kind of like the idea of having people from every walk of life representing us and making laws as a whole. But scientists, real ones, not the ones in the pockets of the lobbyists, would certainly be in there.

And GREAT joke.

I believe the first law to undue would be that sneaky assassination clause from the 2012 NDAA that allows the government to kill you, mr or misses america without due process. After all, does it not seem strange lethal force by police on unarmed citizens went up dramatically ever since?? I know the two are related somehow.

Already mentioned, but yeah of course, the Patriot Act and the ills of the NDAA. Also top on the list: The Ag-gag law(see here) is being considered in states and has already passed in others.

A lot of people think we have too many laws in the U.S. So my question is simple.

Which would be the first law you would undo if you could undo a law? And why?

I could go first and ruin it all, but a prize to the first person who says the one I'm thinking about.



The law that created corporations.

The whole of RIPA (Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act) in the UK. Basically an act of Parliament that allows Parliamentary members, Police, and local government to perform warrantless snooping on private internet / telephone / snail-mail data.

Originally passed as a response to terrorism, now abused by local government to catch people trying to get their children into better schools that aren't in their cachement area by sending them to live with grandparents that are, during term time.

Its also abused by.. well, anyone who can, for whatever reasons they want.

A difficult choice.... either allowing the line item veto be given back to Presidents to keep politicians from sneaking crap into legislation bills, which are often over a thousand pages, or back to corporations are NOT people and have no special rights to donate to campaigns anonymously or without limits. The new laws negate one man, one vote and bring it down to money. Our Congress seems to be run for the benefit of the corporations and wealthy with lobbyists suggesting legislation, fake think tanks and "non-profits" getting protective cover from their influence over Congress, and plenty of other shenanigans in the Capitol.

Congress always had the power to tax incomes, the only thing the 16th Amendment did was enable Congress to tax them in a uniform fashion.
