DON'T TREAD ON ME
That is precisely why in our original Constitution, the governing was designed to be conducted by the individual States.
The only reason for the Federal Government was for the purpose of coordination.
Coordination in determining a common currency, coordination in providing a common defense, and coordination in providing for the common welfare of the States.
1) I think that anyone on welfare (assuming it stays around) should be barred from voting. If you are a drain on the sytem and don't contribute to the system, you shouldn't have a say in how the system is run.
2) I would leave the constitutuon the way it is but handle changes through a new Ammendment. Include in the ammendment the salary limit, who can run for office, who can vote (see my point #1), term limits and anything else we need to fix the Republic.

I got screwed by one of those cameras in Phoenix last year. $178 for going, SUPPOSEDLY, 13 miles over the limit.
Where was my right to confront my accuser? How do I know they weren't lying about my whereabouts? The ticket came more than a month after the supposed crime and there was no way for me to know if on that day I was actually there or not.
Being as I'm poor, I couldn't get a lawyer and try to fight it. Probably would have been a waste of time and money since the whole system has been taken over.

I see your point about it being unconstitutional, even though the 15th says nothing about being on wlefare. But think about this . . .
The same argument is used now.
If you do not vote, you have no right to complain. Correct?
So if you do not put into the system, why should you have a right to dtermine its direction.

Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

Edit: Don't get me wrong. It would be a bad, bad, business to fire across a public highway (most likely a 'vacant' one) or to destroy govt property, but folks will do funny things when their buttons are pushed.

After all the auto bailout money, their plant is closing, the plant they had hoped to transfer is closing, because the plant that will be producing, will be in Mexico.
