Although the Iceland method is intriguing, has anyone thought of the logistics issues with doing it that way in the US?

Iceland population: 318,452 , of which 97% are the same ethnic and cultural background.

US population: 308,745,538, of multiple ethnicities and cultures.

Which one do you think is going to find consensus quickly?

Which one will be bogged down endlessly?

The US has a very good constitution, just needs to be followed more.

Yes,i would amend the executive branch from being one of a unitary presidency to a presidency that has 5-7 kings-presidents. this would challenge the one idiot that seems always on his own plan, just might have to listen to the people as if not the 4-6 others could oust him-her. and the more individuals that argue the better chance that the constitution does not turn a full 180 in less than 200 years. Which leaves us too this new constitution.

Take a poll online of every amendment and bill that has been inserted into the constitution since 1776, then let democracy prevail

All hands yay-nay. then institute this constitution with another party- say the Socialist as we have had socialism in this country since social security

Thus 3 parties, in Congress, Senate, these elected officials could only have 1 five year term. And 7 presidents-kings that have a 1 seven year term, which upon their inoguration picks one Supreme court judge thus, when this new president-king leaves office, so does his elected judge

This is my take, as a growing system always has to have a system of checks and balances that always leads to a government

The thing is when it is a document that is as profound and basically solid in establishing the formation of a government as such, those that believe in it will come out and make sure any lies, misconceptions or misinformation is not left unnoticed.

yes, get rid of the anchor baby loophole. If you come in the country legally, and the baby is born 12 months after your entry date, the kid is a naturalized citizen. otherwise, the child is a citizen of the mothers home country or must establish citzenship some other way

that alone would reduce illegals

What if the child's father is a US Citizen? What if the child's father is YOU?
